Many of you have asked for better collaborative tools for the working 
group.  I have finally received enough training and handholding to move 
the UAWG documents to Github.  I would like to have a trial of working 
with the documents on Github rather than on W3C/WAI, so we can evaluate 
if this makes the working group more efficient.  Github is a complex 
tool with a lot of features, and it has a learning curve.

I have been informed that Github isn't perfect, but is "reasonably 
accessible".  Please let me know if you have any accessibility problems 
that would block you from using the tool.

What this tool will give us is the ability for anyone in the group to be 
an editor and make changes to the document that everyone can see.  If 
you are not an editor, you can file bugs against the spec and have any 
editor make a change.

For additional context (and hopefully a chuckle) see:

So we now have 2 of the 3, and we are working toward more agile.  ;)

If you are currently using Github, please let me know your username and 
I will give you editor privileges.

For anyone who wants to use Github but hasn't before, you can create a 
new user account at https://pages.github.com/

Right now, the pages are under my username, but if the group likes it 
and wants to continue working using this tool, we can make the W3C the 
owner, so the URI will be w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20/

Currently you can view UAAG, Implementing UAAG and the LC comments at:

Editor's repositories are at:
The overall repository is:
The comment repository is:

We can talk about this more at the meeting on Thursday.
