Hi all,

Is the accessibility task force official now? Sam seems to indicate
that it is the case in his agenda [1] for tomorrow's HTML WG
Teleconference. He also mentions that PF has a co-chair but not the
HTML WG. Who is the PF co-chair? Regarding the task force Sam wrote:

Thoughts everyone? Some things I am aware of:

As discussed at Friday's Caucus meeting [2], Michael set up this
mailing list and sent out the initial email to the group:

He created the HTML Accessibility Task Force Home Page:

He created a Wiki page to document the process to submit accessibility
spec bugs so that a copy goes to this list so the Task force will see

He created the Bugzilla keywords "a11y" and "PFWG"

I tagged the legacy accessibility bugs that I am aware of with "a11y".

I put together a Wiki page for Accessibility Issues in Tracker and
Bugs in Bugzilla

I put together a Wiki page to list all HTML WG Task Forces (We may
need to coordinate some with the other TFs):

As I don't seem to have permissions to edit in the New WAI Wiki,  so I
updated Gregory's original HTML5 Issue Collection and Requirements
Drafting Page with a few items:

I started a wiki page for HTML Accessibility Task Force
Teleconferences (don't know if the details are right yet).

I started a place holder page for HTML Accessibility Task Force Meeting Minutes

Anything else?

Best Regards,
