To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>, "public-html-admin@w3.org" <public-html-admin@w3.org>, "Michael[tm] Smith" <mike@w3.org>, Philippe Le H├ęgaret <plh@w3.org>
For future reference and in attempting to better understand how the process
works, can I please get an explanation of how a document[3] that it was
agreed by consensus at the start of June 2014 by the HTML WG [1] and the
HTML accessibility taskforce [2] was not published. The work to be done to
publish this document as a note was/is mechanical and trivial, yet in Oct
2014 it has still not been published, and it has now appears to have been
decided that the document's publication will not occur until unknown,
possibly substantive changes have been made.

What exactly does the HTML WG CFC process mean if decisions made via such
process are delayed for months then set aside without recourse to the group?
