Agenda Edits & Additions

Housekeeping Updates -- Work Statement, Decision Policy, Etc.

   [note, request that people be vigilant about anyone
   unauthorized using the calls; there will be a new password for
   this call starting next week]

   password will be given out only in IRC, and only using "/me" so
   not on the record.

   JS: It's possible to get to MIT webex via SIP

   directly if you're using ipv4, but not if using ipv6

   You may need to turn reinvite off in your sip client

   I'll send email.

   Other items include work statement, decision policy, name APA +
   Web Platforms instead of PF and HTML, maybe other tweaks.

   Also some discussion regarding joint documents similarly

   e.g. there's one between ARIA and WP

   JS: We need to hold up alt because of tweaks we're expecting
   related to extended descriptions- looking like aria-describedat
   will be repalced by HTML details & summary, but our
   requirements aren't yet met

   The disambiguation between use of detail/summary for an image
   description vs another purpose needs to be firmed up, probably
   in December.

   So there will be edits to the draft alt document, so premature
   to ask WCAG and EO to weigh in on it.

   <MarkS> LQ: I've been following the describedat conversation
   closely. I will go through the alt doc and close as many issues
   as possible, like typos and these new details about

   <MarkS> ...once we reach consensus

   JS: once we get that consensus we'll review the text here.

   <ShaneM> I have nothing new to report on this. and can't get my
   audio to work :/

   [ShaneM not on the call]

   <scribe> done

   [14]http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/341 Shane re.
   footnotes, done

     [14] http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/341

   JS: want to refer to footnotes from multiple places in a
   document and to go back to the right place

   and to be able to read footnotes without going through the

   ShaneM: the old access element had support for this sort of use
   ... based on roles.

   This is no longer just accessibility, but a larger context. And
   every time we say HTML should be extended to cover notes.

   And every time people push back.

   Someone needs to enumerate requirements

   <ShaneM> [15]http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-access/

     [15] http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-access/

   ShaneM: PF WG had responsibility for access element inherited
   from HTML 2 WG

   JS: we took care of role & forgot the other.
   ... Next week in the US is the time we're grateful for the fact
   in the US we've welcomed so many immigrants... Thanksgiving...
   so no call next week

   Next call will be 3rd December. Look in IRC for the appropriate
   password at that time.
