Updates to Editor's Draft

   <Lauriat> https://raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/ED-draft=comments-changes-js/guidelines/index.html

   <sajkaj> js: This is a pass for plain language covering Scoring and Conformance

   <sajkaj> js: Andy has put much work into enhancements to methods, but not yet visible

   <sajkaj> js: Some issues merging his work ...

   <jeanne> https://raw.githack.com/Myndex/silver/master/guidelines/methods/Method-font-characteristic-contrast.html

   <sajkaj> js: Right content, older format

   <sajkaj> js: Not our current wire frame, but impressive content contribution

   <sajkaj> js: Test rewritten ...

   <sajkaj> Andy: Have a pr for you

   <sajkaj> js: Next, have conformance edits from Peter and from Angela, both now in a branch ...

   <jeanne> https://raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/ED-comments-korn-js/guidelines/index.html#scoring-conformance

Edits to Visual COntrast Method

   <jeanne> https://raw.githack.com/Myndex/silver/master/guidelines/methods/Method-font-characteristic-contrast.html

   <AndyS> https://raw.githack.com/Myndex/silver/patch-1/guidelines/methods/Method-font-characteristic-contrast.html

   <sajkaj> bb: Just now fixed my spelling errors in patch 1 -- the link I just pasted

   <sajkaj> js: Notes Andy DOES have the new format -- awesome!

   <sajkaj> andy: Tried to add scrolling for code sample ...

   <sajkaj> js: It's just a wire frame. Not to worry about that

   <sajkaj> bb: Looks fabulous

   <sajkaj> Andy: Used Monday's commit so added last night based on latest

   <sajkaj> bb: bit of a glitch on resources tab

   <sajkaj> andy: Image on my repository, I don't have write in Silver repo

   <sajkaj> [discussion of how to include complex math in our doc]

   <sajkaj> js: Are there parts we need in our howto?

   <jeanne2> https://raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/ED-draft=comments-changes-js/guidelines/explainers/visualContrast.html

   <sajkaj> js: Concerned some gets lost ...

   <sajkaj> bb: unsure how much can be pulled from methods for this howto ...

   <sajkaj> bb: It's a plainer language explanation whereas the methods are more technical

   <sajkaj> sl: Get started tab could benefit from plain lang

   <sajkaj> sl: Maybe the lists under how might benefit from table structure

   <sajkaj> charles: suggests are methods are technical

   <sajkaj> sl: Yes, but initial explanation need not be

   <sajkaj> sl: The first two paras, for instance, could be the how and plain lang

   <bruce_bailey> How (in Explainer) seems to be repeat of Predicted Contrast of Detailed Description in method

   <sajkaj> js: Agree that Get Started should be oriented to beginners

   <sajkaj> js: Notes that our FPWD will be accompanied by questions for which we're seeking public comment

   <sajkaj> andy: Asks where bibliography goes?

   <sajkaj> [discussion on how to record our bibliography]

   <sajkaj> charles: Asking for a check on my understanding re tool assisted testing

   <sajkaj> charles: howto says "use a tool"

   <sajkaj> charles: method is "what the tool does"

   <sajkaj> charles: Where a human to run the method, it would take hours

   <bruce_bailey> @JF https://raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/ED-draft=comments-changes-js/guidelines/explainers/visualContrast.html

   <sajkaj> js: We need methods for users of the tool; but also for tool developers

   <KimD> +1

   <Zakim> bruce_bailey, you wanted to comment on "use a tool"

   <sajkaj> bb: "Run a tool" may not be useful at this stage

   <sajkaj> bb: We're in an intermediary state just now it seems

   <sajkaj> bb: We should stay focussed on what we can get done for FPWD

   <sajkaj> jf: Recalling our commitment to use ACT rules and not seeing any of that in our FPWD?

   <bruce_bailey> +1 to methods that use ACT rules format

   <sajkaj> jf: Mightn't we at least enumerate those?

   <sajkaj> js: Tried to get that and haven't managed to pulling it together

   <Lauriat> +1, absolutely

   <sajkaj> js: People able to help on that needed

   <sajkaj> jf: Wonders of when and how we will prioritize that as part of the migration

   <sajkaj> sl: Suggests a good F2F agendum

   <sajkaj> jf: Would want to make sure key people, like Wilco, are present for that

   <sajkaj> js: Adding it to the F2F Agenda
