Abstract

This document introduces a common framework for enhancing the quality 
practices of the W3C Working Groups in the areas of specification 
editing, production of test materials, and coordination efforts with 
internal and external groups. It presents introductory, roadmap, and 
orientation information for the Framework document family of the 
Quality Assurance (QA) Activity. This is the first of the family of 
QA Framework documents, which includes the other existing or 
in-progress specifications: Process & Operational Guidelines; 
Specification Guidelines; and, Technical Guidelines.

Status of this document

This document is a W3C Working Draft, made available by the W3C 
Quality Assurance Activity for discussion on the QA email discussion 
list.

This version incorporates the discussions at the first QA 
face-to-face, plus subsequent QA WG teleconferences, and supersedes 
all previous drafts. This version still has minor editorial issues, 
flagged by "@@", (almost) all of which are needed external links. 
This version is intended as the last WG review version before final 
editing for first public working draft (FPWD).

Publication of this document does not imply endorsement by the W3C, 
its membership or its staff. This is a draft document and may be

Abstract

This document defines a common Operational Framework for building 
conformance test suites and tools for W3C specifications. It presents 
operational and procedural guidelines for groups undertaking 
conformance materials development. This document is one in a family 
of QA Framework documents, which includes the other existing or 
in-progress specifications: Overview & Process; Specification 
Guidelines; and, Technical Guidelines.

Status of this document

This document is a Working Draft, made available by the W3C Quality 
Assurance (QA) Activity for discussion on the QA email list.

This version incorporates the discussions at the first QA 
face-to-face, plus subsequent QA WG teleconferences, and supersedes 
all previous drafts. All review comments against the previous version 
have been accepted and implemented, except as indicated in an 
associated disposition of comments document. This version still has 
minor editorial issues, flagged by "@@", (almost) all of which are 
needed external links.

This version is intended as the last WG review version before final 
editing for first public working draft (FPWD).

This part of the Framework document family will have a companion 
part, "Process & Operational Techniques and Examples" (in progress). 
Some of the lengthier example and "how to" text of this current 
guidelines document version will be moved to the "Techniques and 
Examples" document, when the latter is written.

Publication of this document does not imply endorsement by the W3C, 
its membership or its staff. This is a draft document and may be 
updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is 
inappropriate to use W3C Working Drafts as reference material or to 
cite them as other than "work in progress".

the QA Interest Group. Please note that any mail sent to this list 
will be publicly archived and available, do not send information you 
wouldn't want to see distributed, such as private data.
