To: W3C WAI Protocols & Formats <public-pfwg@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20141016173429.GI1283@opera.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Protocols and Formats Working
Group to approve publication of an updated heartbeat draft of "HTML5:
Techniques for providing useful text alternatives," according to the
draft available at:

Direct URL:
http://rawgit.com/w3c/alt-techniques/54c868254d49bac4ca1efa7d9907cc85bfa0a3cd/index.html

As discussed in the regular weekly HTML-A11Y Task Force teleconference
of Thursday 16 October logged at:

http://www.w3.org/2014/10/16-html-a11y-minutes.html#item04

Two editorial corrections are anticipated by this Call for Consensus:

1.)	An appropriate hyperlink in W3C web space will replace the place
holder hyperlink, currently displaying as "XXXX," should this CfC pass
and this heartbeat be published by W3C;

2.)	The hyperlink referencing the HTML 5 specification will have its
display text corrected to indicate the hyperlink points to the Proposed
Recommendation version of the HTML 5 specification, and not the W3C Last
Call version, as currently displayed.

In the interest of achieving publication of this heartbeat Working Draft
ahead of the publication moratorium surrounding TPAC, a concurrent CfC
is ongoing in the HTML-A11Y Task Force. HTML-WG process does not require
a CfC for heartbeat publications.
	 
ACTION TO TAKE

According to our agreed Consensus Procedures, this CfC is now open for
objection, comment, as well as statements of support via email. Silence
will be interpreted as support, though messages of support are certainly
welcome.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time on Tuesday 21 October.  As is
customary, we will also entertain a resolution on this CfC during our
regular weekly teleconference meeting this coming Wednesday.
