Re: [Conformance] Agenda for Thursday 4 November


My announcement was that Amazon’s funding of Janina was coming to an unfortunate close; nothing more or less than that.

Correction:  Janina is not stepping down from the Conformance Options subgroup.  Shadi is not taking over chairing the subgroup. I'm sorry if it sounded that way.  Janina is no longer working for Amazon, Shadi has been hired by Amazon.

Leadership in a W3C group is by individual, not company. They are appointed by the higher level leadership, for example, the AGWG chairs appoint task force facilitators.  Task force facilitators appoint the subgroup leads/chairs.

We hope that Janina will soon be able to find another company that will be able to sponsor her work on WCAG3.

Kind regards,
