Thanks you all for handling this in my absence.  I'll be able to pick up
working on these resources again after the Grace Hopper convention and my
short vacation (after 10 Oct.)

Thanks Brent and planning team for the review and feedback. I’ll work on
this and let you all know if any questions come up as well as provide
periodic progress updates.

And, a huge thank you to Eric for jumping right in and performing magic on
getting issues transferred over and clarifying which repository is the
canonical version. And all-around awesomeness.

  Thank you. thank you THANK you!!!
  This was excellent to see taken care of. I really appreciate you jumping
  on it for Robert.

  So, now we know that:
        This is the official repository for Policies:

        All issues have been moved from the old repo to this one
        Here are the questionable issues for Robert to look through and
        close or work on:

        As far as the name of the repo - I am fine with it not changing if
        others are as well
        Eric will close the other repo when no longer needed for reference
        (if he hasn't already)
        Robert will continue work on Workflow Wiki and Resource based on
        updated Editing Plan
  Thanks everyone.

         From the word doc:

               Regarding the Repository(ies):
               Currently there are two separate GitHub repositories for
               Policies. We need to get this down to one repository to
               eliminate any confusion. We would like you to reach out to
               Eric and work with him to solve this issue.

               The current repositories are:

               * https://github.com/w3c/wai-policies-prototype/issues (this
               is where current submissions go)
               * https://github.com/w3c/wai-policieslist/issues (but this
               name makes more sense)

               Please work on the following tasks to clean this up:

               1. Find out from Eric which repository should be kept and
               which one should be removed/ closed.

         I think we should keep
         https://github.com/w3c/wai-policies-prototype because it has more
         and more recent comments, IIRC.

         We can rename the repository to something more sensible, for
         example w3c/wai-policies (all links that went to
         wai-policies-prototype would not resolve anymore, however. There
         might be a way to set redirects.)

         (I wonder if the name is a big problem – the perspectives videos
         repo is wai-showcase-examples, for example.)

               2. There are issues in both repositories. Look through all
               issues in each and close any issues that are complete or no
               longer relevant to current or future work.

               3. Some issues were put off until after the AccessU push.
               Look through those and determine if any can be completed
               before relaunch. If they need to wait until after relaunch
               or 2018 then we need to confirm that list is OK with EOWG,
               as the expectation is that they would be picked up and
               worked on in near future.

         I think the issues need some coordinated actions from Robert and
         me and maybe MaryJo. Maybe I can have a look at what needs to be
         done and do some/all of it while y’all are doing the user-testing.

               4. Work with Eric to transfer issues (open and closed), if
               possible, to the repository that will be kept. If they
               cannot be transferred, then you may need to close some in
               one and open them in the other.

         I am just using https://github-issue-mover.appspot.com to move all
         issues from the policieslist to the policies-prototype repository.

               5. Once everything is completed, have Eric close the
               repository that we will not use. BE SURE THE ONE KEPT OPEN

         I can do that :-)

               Hi Robert,

               Thank you so much for forwarding again. We figured out the
               issue with the email, so I will see all future "planning"

               The planning team met this morning to discuss and provide
               feedback. Sorry for the delay of the response. Attached is a
               Word doc where we had made some edits and added our
               recommendations to complete your plan. You will find
               everything that we added or changed highlighted in yellow so
               you can find it all quickly.

               With this feedback integrated into your plan, it is approved
               and you are good to go. Please keep up the great work as you
               go through the edits and work with your review team to get
               to a final draft. Remember, if you have any questions at
               all, please reach out to me right away and I will get you
               what you need to keep moving forward.

               Please let us know if you have any questions about what we
               have added. Happy to provide more detail if needed.

                 I sent it, and asked about the status in my Survey
                 submission this week. Something weird must be happening!
                 Here it is again:

                 Hello EO Planning Team,

                 I have been reviewing the Web Accessibility Laws and
                 Policies resource for its readiness for the new site
                 design/re-launch, and the resource is in very good shape,
                 overall. As part of the review process, I have created an
                 initial Policies Workflow wiki page to document how the
                 resource will be maintained over time. Please review it
                 and let me know what changes you suggest to clarify or
                 simplify the process and ensure it is complete and
                 accurate as possible.

                 There are a couple of tasks that should be planned for
                 pre-launch, and they are listed below.

                 1. Review and make edits to the Policies Workflow wiki
                 2. Review content within the Policies resource against
                 the WAI Style Guide and make any suggestions for
                 corrections/updates in GitHub.
                 This Style Guide review task is not expected to yield
                 substantial changes, as the resource was recently
                 re-published with the whole group’s involvement in editing
                 the content.

                 Regarding the Workflow wiki page, I have been thinking
                 about whether or not we should mention it or link to it
                 from the Policies pages where appropriate (like on the
                 Submission page for changes/additions). I would like to
                 have feedback from the planning team on whether or not we
                 need to expose that level of detail directly, though.

                 If all of this looks good to you, I will begin that work
                 and distribute to the Policies reviewers quickly to keep
                 things on track.

                 Thank you, and please let me know if you have any
                 questions, suggestions, or needs that I can help with.
