    HTML5 and 5.1 specs that involve accessibility

    ...discuss new bugs on this call each week. Those that are
    worth the TF to champion and pursue we will bring it to the TF
    and assign it to a TF member.

    varying angles.

    ...collectively, we usually have an opinion on most things.
    Sometimes we are at a loss and we bring it to the TF for their

    ...with regard to 5.0 and 5.1 specs, things are fairly quiet at
    this time. During certain stages in the publication process,
    things can get much busier.

Meeting times

    LW: how does this time work for everyone?

    [discussion - not ideal but there aren't many other options
    considering our locations]

    able to continue.

    ... we will need someone to replace him in that role.

    ... hans has had a filter query that he runs through bugzilla

    ... emails the bug triage list with a brief summary regarding
    why it was possibly tagged.

    MC: working on the bug triage sub-team requires working
    knowledge of bugzilla.

    ...there are a number of keywords we use for tracking: 'a11y'
    means somebody thinks the bug is accessibility related.

    ...'a11ytf' means the TF has formally decided to track the bug
    and work on its resolution. this is usually added to a11y.
    normally someone from TF will add this keyword.

    <LJWatson> The different keywords are described here:

       [9] https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/describekeywords.cgi

    ...keywords for 'media'

    LW: goes through all of the bugs that have been filed and will
    add the a11y keyword, emails the list around, then we discuss
    the implications during our call.

    ...add a11ytf keyword to those which are worthy of the TF
