I formally object that issues raised on the Test GL by myself such as

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2003Jul/0001
and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2003Jul/0004

were not added to the QAWG's issue list before the process of asking for 
advance of the Specification and Operational Guidelines to Candidate 
Recommendation.

The rationale for this objection is that when advancing those two documents 
the QAWG gave a misleading impression that the related work of the whole 
QAF was stable.

Moreover the splitting of the QAF into three recommendation track documents 
advancing at different speeds, were prejudicial against my timely comments 
on the Test Guidelines. Specifically the comment suggesting greater 
conversation between the QAWG and editors and WG's with Test 
recommendations and working drafts has been being acted on. The QAWG 
prevent my comment from having impact on issues which are not narrowly 
focussed on the test document, since the other issues are not part of 
'stable' candidate recommendations.

I would be satisfied if the QAWG decided that it was a mistake to advance 
the three documents at different speeds and returned all documents to Last 
Call when the Test Guidelines are ready, and when all comments on all 
documents have been formally addressed.
