   paulc: Eliot do you know what the situation for exit criteria

   ... currently pending work by a11y TF
   ... plan 2014 pointed to some work that TF had done
   ... discussed on TF meeting this morning
   ... janina, can you give us an update?

   janina: the outcome of today's discussion was to ask that
   publication of this be deferred while we resolve issues about
   alt in this document and the html spec
   ... we will do a CfC based on the telcon
   ... expect that we will ask this to be deferred

   paulc: one item was that the chairs had encouraged TF to work
   with editors to get differences resolved
   ... but we didn't know the status on the TF this morning
   ... wanted to get status from robin or the other editors
   ... moving this forward to CR is on hold for now waiting for
   pending work
   ... people probably think we don't need a spec overlapping
   html5 normative language
   ... janina, do you agree?

   janina: think so

Main Element

   paulc: CfC passed
   ... provisional date is dec 17

   paulc: this is a request to publish as FPWD - waiting for
   feedback on whether ready for CfC

   janina: i missed the meetings about this so didn't follow up
   ... PF did approve but didn't follow-up
   ... no reason why we can't do CfC

   paulc: plan is to do CfC for publishing of FPWD of using ARIA
   in HTML
   ... will work with janina on this
   ... both in task force and working group simultaneously

   janina: and in PF

HTML 5.1 and Canvas 2D

   <Zakim> plh, you wanted to go back to html5.1 and canvas2d.next

   plh: i believe that robin is ready (and he is on the phone)

   paulc: can we get the URLs of the stable docs in IRC

   plh: yes

   <darobin> [29]http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/

     [29] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/


     [30] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/FPWD51/Overview.html


     [31] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/2dcontext/FPWD51/Overview.html

   <plh> Robin, please type in here

   <darobin> it looks like it isn't working

   <darobin> I'll type

   <darobin> those drafts should be okay

   <darobin> (not sure if I need to add more)

   <darobin> please check that they're correct

   paulc: we need to do a separate CfC on publication of these
   drafts, correct?

   plh: correct

   paulc: would like to do this today so we can hit dec 17
   ... think will do two separate CfCs

   <darobin> we need to pick a shortname for canvas2d2

   <darobin> this can be done outside the call, by executive

   <plh> "2dcontext-2" ?

   paulc: chairs and team will figure out short name
   ... every working draft has a short name
   ... plh, for these FPWD does this request have to go to chairs

   <glenn> c2d

   plh: yes, it's FPWD, no directors request just sent to chairs

   paulc: did this happen for main element?

   plh: no, not yet

   paulc: okay, this needs to happen too

   <paulc> 1. Chairs message on main element to chairs@w3.org

   <paulc> 2. Chairs messgae on HTML5.1 and Canvas2D-2 to

   <paulc> 3. Cfc on FPWD of HTML 5.1

   <paulc> 4. CfC on FPWD of Canvas2D-2

   paulc: is this correct?

   <paulc> 5. CfC on FPWD of ARIA in HTML (also in PF and A11Y TF)

   <paulc> 6. Chairs message on FPWD of ARIA in HTML to

   paulc: think this is all the publication things?

   plh: what is the minimum duration for canvas2d in CR?

   paulc: don't know

   <jaymunro> moving to 6mong

   plh: was a discussion after CfC about reducing duration
   ... think it was only 6 months
   ... not sure if acknowledged anywhere

   paulc: was this in the archive?

   plh: yes but i'm looking for the conclusion of the discussion

   paulc: last week's minutes say we had no objections and request
   to reduce duration of CR
   ... and were expecting decision by next week

   <jaymunro> I'll change the boilerplate once the decision has
   been made for shortening to 6 months.

   plh: last week sam said decision would be made by this week -
   are you asking for a CfC now?

   paulc: plh, what is your recommendation?

   plh: one way to go is to see what people on this call think
   ... say it will be 6 months unless someone says something on
   the list within one week

   <paulc> From Rik:

     [32] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Nov/0212.html

   paulc: will reply to the thread stating it will be 6 months
   unless someone objects by some date

   <paulc> 7. Chairs to confirm with WG that min duration for
   Canvas CR will be 6 months

   paulc: plh, anything else?

   plh: no, sorry for disturbing the agenda

     [34] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-testsuite/2012Dec/0002.html

   krisk: here are the notes
   ... one thing we agreed is moving towards short names for test
   ... this came up a little a tpac
   ... 1. this means we don't need metadata in every test
   ... 2. it will help understand coverage of tests
   ... we spent one meeting for 90 minutes - longer than usual
   ... and this week the full hour
   ... discussing how to use mercurial better
   ... using pull model instead of pushing things in
   ... meeting again to make progress on this
   ... more participation
   ... that's it

   paulc: any questions?
   ... krisk, can you give us the most definitive link to work on
   task force?

   krisk: the meeting notes are the best links

   paulc: thanks kris

Accessibility Task Force

   janina: activity is picking up again with reorg that came with
   plan 2014
   ... people getting clarity of who is doing which piece

   <krisk> This is the best link for Testing Task Force
   Information [35]http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Testing

     [35] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Testing

   janina: had CfC for longdesc spec that restore old historical
   ... mostly supportive but some objections
   ... will summarise and respond to all objections before passing
   to WG
   ... that work is ongoing
   ... already talked about alt text issues a few minutes ago -
   nothing to add
   ... bug triage team continues to meet
   ... i'm paying more attention to a11y api mapping subteam
   ... deliverable for HTML WG to show how html elements and
   attributes should map to OS apis
   ... important deliverable - difficult to find a meeting time
   because of location of participants
   ... that's where we are

Media Task Force

   paulc: we restarted the meetings
   ... high level report is driving the MSE and EME sub groups to
   get a document in front of WG that could be FPWD as soon as
   ... MSE met on tuesday, EME met next tuesday
   ... for MSE identified 5 or 6 bugs that need to be fixed before
   ... won't go to zero bugs but should be enough for FPWD
   ... hoping to achieve the same for EME next week
   ... expecting to be ready for CfC for FPWD in January
   ... talked about a11y TF paying more attention to media TF

Other Business

   paulc: update on public-html-admin
   ... list is set-up and is being used for non-technical
   ... next item is to get new bugzilla message to go to this list
   ... all new CfC discussed today will also go to that list
   ... leaving public-html for pure technical discussion

   glenn: i would advise that bugzilla messages go to separate
   list than admin

   paulc: there is a list for this already - WG has previous
   decision in place asking for new messages only to public-html
   ... changing the destination but maintaining that there is a
   list everyone is subscribed to that gets the new messages

   glenn: then i withdraw my comment

   paulc: appears to be a request with no responses about
   publishing their document via the HTML WG
   ... added to the agenda because not sure how to process this


     [36] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Nov/0173.html

   paulc: plh, i wasn't sure how to respond to this - nobody has
   ... CG has asked about publishing use cases

   plh: seems to me good to publish use cases as WG note

   adrianba: haven't had time to respond but we are supportive of
   moving this forward in HTML WG based on great work in the CG

   paulc: so you support publishing both?

   adrianba: yes

   paulc: this was discussed at TPAC - was the the conclusion to
   move forward with both specs

   hober: that's how i remember it

   paulc: are you ready to publish or do you want to process bugs?

   hober: i haven't asked for fpwd because i want to process bugs
   ... expect to be ready in early january

   plh: is the intent to pick a winner down the road or do we see
   both going to rec

   hober: think given the timeframe for plan 2014 we have a pretty
   good window of time to figure this out so i'm okay with
   ... that said, would be easy to merge srcset document

   plh: i was thinking about merging the two proposals for
   responsive images
   ... think it would be good in status of documents to give
   information about expectation of the group
   ... because people might wonder about publishing two competing

   hober: happy to update status in that way

   paulc: i will respond to the msg 173 saying editor of srcset
   extension proposal has asked for time to process bugs
   ... and expect to process CfC on theses docs in early 2013

   hober: sounds good

   paulc: will move this to admin list

   hober: given it is december, expect people will accept early
   2013 timeframe

   paulc: any other business?

Scribe for next meeting

   paulc: expect mjs will chair next week
   ... any volunteer to scribe?

   plh: i can take notes next week

   paulc: thanks plh
