Weekly Resolved & Rejected Bugs Report

Hello Everyone,

The Task Force facilitators have asked me to send a "Weekly Resolved &
Rejected Bugs Report" email to this list regarding accessibility bugs.

A HTML5 Accessibility Bug Status Table is at:

1. We currently have no "REMIND", "INVALID", or "MOVED" bugs. I will
add those categories if we receive any bugs labeled in that fashion.

2. We currently have three a11y "DUPLICATE" bugs that seem like
duplicates to me.


3. We have a number of "FIXED" a11y Bugs that the Task Force may want
to make sure we agree are indeed fixed. They include:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8524 (Jeanne Spellman
reported this bug for AUWG)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8656 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8658 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8668 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7404 (Canvas related)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8187 (Kelly Ford
reported this audio description bug)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8525 (Jeanne Spellman
reported this bug for AUWG)

In case I missed any "FIXED" a11y Bugs that you think the task force
should look at further, the full "FIXED" listing is at:

4. We have one "LATER" a11y Bug that the Task Force may want to make
sure we are in agreement with postponing:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5758 (Jim Jewett's 2008
Audio Video Bug).

4. We have one "WORKSFORME" a11y Bug that the Task Force may want to
make sure works for everyone:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8617 (Gez reported this
icon attribute bug for WAI)

5. I would recommend that the Task Force look at the a11y NEEDSINFO
query to see if there are ways we can help give Ian the information
that he needs.

Quite a few a11y bugs that Gez recently entered are marked "NEEDSINFO".

6. I would also recommend that the task force look at the a11y WONTFIX
query to see if we are in agreement that these bugs do not need to be
fixed or have been escalated to issues. There are currently sixteen
