1. Processed most of the last call issue at last weeks FTF meeting.  Just a 
few small items to finalize and we should be done with the issues.

2. Checkpoints are becoming much clearer on what are minimal requirements 
and what is needed by people with disabilities.

3. Group is expecting to return UAAG to last call sometime late in March, 
probably for about 2 weeks.

4. A small number of checkpoint requirements do not have documented

6. Coordination issues
a. Scripting: We spent a lot of time on scripting issues
b. Documentation: We need information on how people with disabilities are

results in extending the time in moving the document to recommendation.
