Hi all,

After taking some time recently to revisit the pri1 checkpoints from
[1]:

 

Cp2.3. Request allocation of QA resources to the Working Group.
[Priority 1]

 

I'd suggest downgrading this one to Pri2.

 

Rationale:

This may not be implementable/manageable for Working Groups of too small
and too large size(XMLP). 

In some cases W3C has to impose a limitation on the number of
participants in the WG.

 

Cp4.5. Define the QA framework for test materials development. [Priority
1]

Suggest downgrading to Pri2.

 

Rationale:

 Framework may not be needed in certain cases (like our Working Group)
or any other WG that develops abstract framework for other
specifications.

 

Cp 8.2. Specify a test materials update procedure to track new
specification versions/errata. [Priority 2]

 

Rationale:

I support an existing request to promote this to pri1 but only for
errata. New specification versions are essentially new specs and
existing test suites are not applicable anymore. Example: namespace
change invalidates all the test cases for any XML based standard.

 

Thanks
