[QAWG -- this is the reference document of the 20030818 telecon resolution 
for OpsGL progression, trimmed down to just those consensus parts that are 
relevant to the resolution.   -LRH]

We have (as of noon EDT, 18 August 2003) apparently only one outstanding 
negative response to our OpsGL DoC document:  Jon Gunderson's rejection 
(thread starting at [4]) of our disposition of his OpsGL issue, LC-56 [1].

I propose that we (QAWG) move forward as follows.

Part 1:  Considering only OpsGL:
==========

There is only one part of LC-56 [1] which is relevant to WG operations and 
OpsGL:  "This may require having a specific person in charge of defining 
and monitoring the inclusion of accessibility features."

Regardless of the resolution of the broader [QA-WAI] issue, we believe that 
OpsGL should not require such a specific person.  Reasons:

1.) If "defining and monitoring the inclusion of accessibility features" is 
determined to be OUTSIDE of the scope of QA's mission and responsibilities, 
then any such "special person" is outside of the scope of OpsGL (QA-related 
operational aspects of WG life).

2.) If "defining and monitoring the inclusion of accessibility features" is 
determined to be WITHIN the scope of QA's mission and responsibilities, 
then the proposed accessibility duties would automatically fall within the 
job description of the OpsGL-required "QA Moderator".

Considering only OpsGL, then, there is no need for any change.  We reaffirm 
our disposition of this comment, and we will progress OpsGL with the 
outstanding disagreement.
