well  I guess  the equiv of    WCAG  - is now   AG

the equiv of   WCAG  Working Group  -    is   AG  Working Group

we never tried to shorten Working group.    (e.g.  there was never   WCAGWG or   WCAGG)

I guess the if we ever used   WCAG WG  it would now be  AG WG  but we never pronounced more than   WCAG  so     we only need to figure out how to pronounce  AG.    Which is AG

but perhaps the full name isnt long enough now  (and AG sounds like agriculture) so I suspect people will just say the name    Accessibility Guidelines

Unless that is too vague so they say     W3C  Accessibility guidelines       which is wha    WAG?      W3 AG?      or....     no.....     W3C AG    (how is that for irony)

At any rate  it looks like

WCAG   ->   AG
WCAG WG   ->    AG  WG      which would be pronounced    WCAG Working group ->     AG  Working Group

Mooooo ?

Maybe petition for a rename to   Web Accessibility Working group - and then we are all   WAGs

Dear WAI Interest Group,

Great news for Accessibility: the W3C membership and our Director, Tim Berners-Lee, have approved the re-charter of the WCAG Working Group!

However, under the new charter our name has officially changed. We are now the Accessibility Guidelines Working Group or AGWG...:-)

Please consider having your organization join the W3C and the new AGWG. The W3C has put out a Call for Participation in AGWG. We need all the expert help we can get building WCAG 2.1, and improving our resource docs and techniques.

Please see the following information about how to join the group: https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/participation

Our new public home page is at: https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/

Happy Friday!
