Decision on CfC: Update Our Decision on Publishing an FPWD of CAPTCHA

From: Janina Sajka (janina@rednote.net) <(janina@rednote.net)>
Date: Tue, 7 Dec 2021 01:45:04 -0500
To: public-apa-admin@w3.org
Cc: W3C WAI Accessible Platform Architectures <public-apa@w3.org>, public-rqtf@w3.org
Message-ID: <Ya8C8PUCcaMf+OG1@rednote.net>
Colleagues:

This Call for Consensus (CfC) has received only messages of support.
This updated proposal is therefore agreed to as a consensus decision of
APA, and our FPWD publication will proceed accordingly.

The head of thread for this CfC is available here:

Best,

Janina and Becky
