To all UAAG participants and list lurkers,

Yesterday at the WAI Coordination Group meeting, the Protocols and 
Formats Working Group asked for help in reviewing the HTML5 
specification.  It is a very large spec, and the people who have been 
working on it for a long time are already busy with existing issues and 
don't have the bandwidth to add a new complete review.

PFWG has divided the spec into 35 sections and have asked for volunteers 
to review a section and write their comments into the wiki page linked 
in the first column. PF's priorities are to find  reviewers for the 
sections: Globals, Block, Inline, Obsolete features,Tables

I agreed to pass the request on to the UAWG, but did ask that all bugs 
be managed by PF.  We may be asked to write future change proposals and 
respond to requests for more information, but the direct interaction 
with HTML5 (bug filing and tracking) will be managed by PF.

PF has linked to our HTML5 notes page, and I have added a link to their 
page from our wiki:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/work/wiki/HTML5_review_by_UAWG_notes

Kudos to Mark for quickly identifying a new area of concern (@pattern) 
that clearly shows that a close inspection of HTML5 is required.  [I 
want to create a t-shirt with "Got checkedness?"]

The HTML5 WG rejects comments that do not meet their particular 
requirements, so please coordinate your comments with UAAG or PF so that 
an effective bug can be filed.

Because of the complexity of filing a HTML5 bug, PF requests that all 
review of HTML5 be completed *** before 15 July *** to allow time to 
research and write the bugs before the HTML5 deadline of 3 August. 
HTML5 will not discuss any bugs filed after the 3 August deadline.

Thank you all for your continued dedication to improving accessibility 
on the web.  The Last Call review is an important step that we cannot 
let pass or leave for someone else to do for us.

Regards,

jeanne
