The summary for today's Silver call:


The silver team was not able to advance on the set agenda, though the call remained productive in other ways.


We reviewed if the Conformance Sub-Group had any needs from the Content Sub-Group, and if the Content Sub-Group had any needs from the Conformance Sub-Group.  No new needs were raised.


Given we had two new members to the team who are active and eager to participate (Peter Korn and Janina of Amazon), we reviewed some of the history of the conformance models and testing measuring methods.  We reviewed some content that is currently documented and answered some questions that current documentation didn't answer clearly.  


Some of the time was spent discussing what decisions have been made by the group that have been finalized, vs. the documented decisions and concepts which are still flexible, vs. the decisions that have been offered as a starting point for conversation but remain subject to discussion [and cast in "vapor"].  This information helped inform our new active members of the group's current status.


Additionally some of the conversation was spent on exploring the different measuring approaches discussed in the proposals.  Peter Korn, Janina and John Foliot participated in a conversation to understand some of the proposed approaches for larger/dynamic sites, and possible alternatives to address challenges presented by larger sites with more dynamic content.  [PERSONAL TAKEAWAY]:  Peter Korn discussed the value of identifying which tests are programmatically determinable (and some benefits to large/dynamic sites), and John Foliot discussed that some SC may have greater impact on a greater number of users, and that testing which involves more human effort COULD be considered of higher score and be worth a greater number of points.
