The comments from the last call draft comment period are now in. 


We have received comments from 93 individuals.  


-       about 1/3 submitted a single comment

-       about 1/3 submitted between 2 and 10 comments (average 4)

-       about 1/3 submitted between 12 and 60 comments (average 30)

-       and one particularly thorough reviewer submitted 122


Some of the comments were submitted as individual comments. Others were
submitted on a form or in an email with many comments.  This count includes
some issues that we (WCAG WG members) identified from discussions at the
time and put into the formal record ourselves, as well as comments from
other W3C working groups.  


We received the full range of comments, including typos, formatting
suggestions, questions, comments, congratulations, condemnation, and
comments and suggestions on how to improve the technical and informative


Thank you all commenters for you input.  We have logged all the comments in
and are beginning to sort them out by topic and review and respond to them.




Where comments are not clear enough, or we cannot find which part of the
document they refer to, we will be sending out requests for clarification.
Because multiple people usually found the same errors, or in some cases
multiple commenters all suggest we change the same thing in different ways,
we won't be sending out any responses on individual comments until we have
processed all the comments and are sure that we have all the comments for
any part of the document in hand.  We don't want to address one comment by
making a modification to an item (and telling the commenter) only to change
the same item later in response to another comment.   As you might guess -
on many topics we received conflicting comments.   


So there will be a time here where we are tentatively addressing comments -
but the resolution isn't final (and won't be sent out) until we are sure we
have cleared all the comments that might affect it.  


As issues are finally decided upon - the resolution will be sent out to the
commenter and posted to the public comment list.  


In the meantime we will continue to discuss issues on GL as well.
