Dear WAI IG folks,

I took over editing WAI's "Policies Relating to Web Accessibility"[1]
this summer. At that time I incorporated updates from the archive of the
WAI EO Editors list[2].

We welcome additional updates to the Policies page, and request that you
include the information listed in "Submitting Updates to Policies
Relating to Web Accessibility"[3].

The Status section at the top of the Policies page used to say, "Should
you be aware of additional legislation or policies beyond those listed
here, corrections needed, or developments related to legislation listed
here, please contact wai-eo-editors@w3.org." 
Most of the information that was e-mailed was incomplete and it was very
time intensive to track down the complete information (especially in
languages I don't read). In an effort to decrease the exchanges between
the initial information provider and myself, I set up the "Submitting
Updates to Policies..." page to clarify what information is needed for
an update. I welcome feedback on that page as well.

Although updating the Policies page is not my top priority, I will
incorporate updates as soon as feasible.

Best regards,

~ Shawn
