Request for WAI-IG Input -- for late JUNE 2016 by this weekend.

Dear WAI Chairs and Others,


As I noted on the WAI Coordination Call, I will be sending to you (on a semi-regular basis), requests to solicit draft content that you would like me to share on the WAI-IG to promote a more continuous review cycle of content that you specifically would like discussion, comments, and feedback on.


​​​​​This is the first of such email (from a newbie chair trying to find some legs)….:-)


WAI-IG’s mission is to be a place for DISCUSSION concerning issues, solutions and awareness concerning Accessibility overall and WAI documents/activities specifically. 


To understand how WAI-IG can hopefully help you in your work, assume that DISCUSSION (and informal comments) should happen on WAI-IG list (as well as your WG/IG lists, and elsewhere). Assume that *formal* COMMENTS and FEEDBACK on official documents should be directed to your desired input location……


Because of the unique makeup of WAI-IG participants, chairs should expect to receive input that is broader (with additional perspectives) then what their own WG/IG listservs are able to provide.


When/if you have any content (heretofore *it*) you would like me to submit to the list for review (discussion, comments, and feedback on) please include these 4 things:


1.      INTRODUCTION: One, two or more sentence Intro about what *it* is, and what *it*is for.



4.      If applicable, WHERE and HOW SPECIFICALLY *formal* comments and feedback on official documents should be sent. (Example: email and/or Github or other)



Please, note that this is NOT to suggest that you shouldn’t directly just send messages for content review to the WAI-IG list without going through me – just be thinking that in the long term I am going to try to be providing some regular-ish ‘call for discussions’ of the content that you need/desire comments and feedback on.


Finally, so with all that in mind, please send me whatever content you would like me to share with WAI-IG for late JUNE 2016 by this weekend.




FYI, from the  <https://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/charter5> WAI-IG Charter these are the working groups, interest groups and task forces with their generated content, that WAI-IG is chartered to focus its attention on:


The WAI IG provides a forum for review and discussion of draft deliverables from the following WAI groups: 

1.	Accessible Platform Architectures Working Group (APA WG <http://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/> ) 
2.	ARIA Working Group (ARIA WG <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ARIA/> ) 
3.	Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/> )
4.	Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG <https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/> )
