Thank you for the request. Please see below.

Enhanced Acknowledgements Proposal


  *   To have the names actually be more useful than just an undifferentiated list, but avoid the burden of maintaining specific individual contributions.
  *   To have sections of Acknowledgements with people’s names in the sections.  People can be in more than one section. With a sectioned list, it is possible to narrow down who was working on specific sections and make it easier to find individual accomplishments.

Here are the proposed sections.
Authors: People who wrote big swathes of WCAG3 and also the people who could be counted on to write small proposals that solved big problems.

Subgroup Leaders: From the Subgroup list on the wiki home page.  These people deserve lots of credit.  Ping Jeanne if they need to be updated.

Subgroup Participants: This could be grabbed from the Subgroup home pages where there is a participant list. We can ask the subgroup leaders to keep that list up to date.

Researchers: People whose research outside of task force/working group meetings were used in  the development of WCAG 3.  This is where I see people like Andy, Mike Crabb, Joshue, Francis, Jake, Cybele, Luis, Jemma, Sarah, Dave Sloan.

Participating Contributors: The people who regularly showed up, and especially participated and scribed. This should be the people that participated regularly for more than 6 months. Regularly should be defined as at least x (3-5? 6-8?) meetings per month on average.  I don’t mean to calculate each one, but in case it is challenged, we have that definition.

Call For Consensus — ends Friday February 19th at 10:00 Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed criteria for acknowledgement sections in
WCAG 3.0


Call minutes:


If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have
not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you
“not being able to live with” this decision, please let both groups know
before the CfC deadline.

Kind regards,
