In fact it is for both informing and invoking the action.
Group members who are interested in WCAG 2.1 can invoke their AC reps to respond.

With regards

I'm sure Avneesh just sent this FYI but I thought I should point out that only AC reps can actually vote so you don't try and get frustrated if you're not an AC rep.

  Quoting from
  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1
  W3C Proposed Recommendation 24 April 2018

  This version:
  Latest published version:


  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of
  recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these
  guidelines will make content more accessible to a wider range of people
  with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and
  hearing loss, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity,
  and combinations of these, and some accommodation for learning
  disabilities and cognitive limitations; but will not address every user
  need for people with these disabilities. These guidelines address
  accessibility of web content on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile
  devices. Following these guidelines will also often make Web content
  more usable to users in general.

  WCAG 2.1 success criteria are written as testable statements that are
  not technology-specific. Guidance about satisfying the success criteria
  in specific technologies, as well as general information about
  interpreting the success criteria, is provided in separate documents.
  See Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Overview for an
  introduction and links to WCAG technical and educational material.

  WCAG 2.1 extends Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 [WCAG20],
  which was published as a W3C Recommendation December 2008. Content that
  conforms to WCAG 2.1 also conforms to WCAG 2.0, and therefore to
  policies that reference WCAG 2.0.

  Until WCAG 2.1 advances to W3C Recommendation, the current and
  referenceable document is Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0
  [WCAG20], published as a W3C Recommendation December 2008.

  Status of This Document:

  This section describes the status of this document at the time of its
  publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of
  current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical
  report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at

  This is a Proposed Recommendation of WCAG 2.1 by the Accessibility
  Guidelines Working Group. WCAG 2.1 was published as a Candidate
  Recommendation on 30 January 2018. Since then the Working Group has
  collected implementation experience for the guidelines. No items at risk
  were removed, but some success criteria were renamed or moved in a
  manner that does not impact conformance. A history of changes to WCAG
  2.1 is available in the appendix.

  The primary purpose of the Proposed Recommendation is to collect
  feedback from the Advisory Committee. W3C Advisory Committee Members are
  invited to send formal review comments to the W3C Team until 22 May
  2018. Comments should be made using the Call for Review WBS form. To
  comment, aside from Advisory Committee comments, file an issue in the
  W3C WCAG 2.1 GitHub repository. The Working Group requests that public
  comments be filed as new issues, one issue per discrete comment. It is
  free to create a GitHub account to file issues. If filing issues in
  GitHub is not feasible, send email to public-agwg-comments@w3.org
  (comment archive). Comments are requested by 22 May 2018. In-progress
  updates to the document may be viewed in the publicly visible editors'

  This document was published by the Accessibility Guidelines Working
  Group as a Proposed Recommendation. This document is intended to become
  a W3C Recommendation. The W3C Membership and other interested parties
  are invited to review the document and send comments to
  public-comments-wcag20@w3.org (subscribe, archives) through 22 May 2018.
  Advisory Committee Representatives should consult their WBS
  questionnaires. Note that substantive technical comments were expected
  during the Candidate Recommendation review period that ended 30 March 2018.

  Please see the Working Group's implementation report.

  Publication as a Proposed Recommendation does not imply endorsement by
  the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated,
  replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is
  inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

  This document was produced by a group operating under the W3C Patent
  Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in
  connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes
  instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual
  knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential
  Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of
  the W3C Patent Policy.
