> Dear WCAG WG,
>
> As you know, the WCAG/ERT "WCAG 2.0 Test Samples Development Task  
> Force" (TSD TF) [1] has recently launched. The group is currently  
> forming and setting up tools and processes to store and publish the  
> WCAG 2.0 Test Samples.
>
> Part of the groups task is to define a format for a metadata that  
> describes the test samples. For example, the metadata may contain  
> information about the intended outcome after executing the test  
> procedure (from WCAG 2.0 Techniques) on a specific test sample.
>
> The group is currently looking into adopting the "Test Case  
> Description Language" (TCDL) [2] which has been developed by the  
> BenToWeb project [3]. It is an XML based vocabulary that is already  
> in use for managing the BenToWeb Test Suites for WCAG 2.0 [4].
>
> We would be happy to hear comments or feedback from participants of  
> the WCAG WG before we take this decision. Please don't hesitate to  
> contact me or Christophe Strobbe if you have any questions  
> regarding this issue.
