I'm worried about having two parallel processes (confusing and management
issues, and how to measure/demonstrate "equivalence"?).  Why not consider
one process that would work for any technique no matter who develops it?
There would be one set of quality and other criteria that the submitter
would have to satisfy.  Such an approach would promote uniformity and
consistency..  (Background - in the related realm of testing/test suites, WG
members develop tests "in-house" but contributions from outside are
encouraged, there is one set of process/requirements, and one test suite,
with tests from various contributors all meeting the same requirements..)

Best, Tim Boland NIST

When last we visited this topic, our draft proposal was
<http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=Externally_Submitted_Techni
ques_Proposal>
or
<http://tinyurl.com/cea9zd>

Let's use this as a starting point for our discussion. Is this still
the policy we want to propose? Do we want to consider any
modifications?
