TPAC 2017 https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/Meetings/TPAC_2017

Push API Next Steps

   mc: Unclear why an informative section would be judged "out of scope."
   ... Also unclear why a single individual can decide and close
   ... Seems insufficient communication
   ... Suggest we might need to inform Director commentor did not accept disposition--short of an FO

   lw: Reason is editor empowered to determine
   ... Hard to include even informative when ref to outside spec--issues yet to be opened, and likely still open when Push goes TR
   ... Many specs reference Notifications API
   ... Seems slippery slope

   cn: No objection on principle
   ... Problem content not specific to the spec it was to be included in
   ... Appropriate all kinds of places --

   js: Asks whether Notification draft sufficient to file?

   cn: Yes -- don't wait for code

   mc: Experience was super concrete proposals is preferred -- description alone insufficient

   <chaals> [I think what needs to be concrete is the clear problem statement, and I think that is in the proposal for Notifications]

   mc: We have history of pointing to issues in other specs, esp WCAG

   lw: RE should code be in the proposal ...
   ... would be useful, but it's already good enough to start the discussion

   js: Raises the meta question of checking for a11y impact on any given spec

   lw: Notes security and privacy are now given

   mc; Spoke with Ralph about this --

   mc: Belief that security and privacy sections generally needed, but a11y not generally needed
   ... Did encourage recommending impact sections

   mc; Should be more than follow wcag

   mc: Isn't that supposed to happen anyway?

   js: Believe pointing to specific wcag provisions that are particularly applicable is valuable, given wcag is huge

   mc: Devs don't always agree

   cn: Have serious issue with a11y not as important/relevant as security/privacy
   ... Will take that up
   ... Clear Push can be used to do dumb things--like most any spec
   ... That alone isn't sufficient reason
   ... If WHAT drops the request entirely, aPA could write a note

   mc: Suggest a running APA discussion on what our position on impact statements in specs should be

CSS Task Force -- Ian

new on TR http://www.w3.org/TR/tr-status-drafts.html

   mc: Note updates to payments specs

Proposal re review attributions -- Michael

   mc: Re ways to motivate people to do reviews for APA
   ... Would getting credit help?
   ... Idea is to point to APA reviewers when a spec does credite commentors

   cn: Beware unintended consequences ...
   ... Believe pointing to actual comments and implementation in spec should suffice

   <tink> Zakim: /me has to drop for another meeting.
