 we plan to publish in late August early September. Comments remain open through TPAC, probably.

   SLH: Josh has started announcements for all the documents
 I will be out for vacation. I should be able to do the announcements, but I can arrange a backup.

   SLH: Make sure that others know that it is not urgent.

   Janina: Will do, and want to respect staff time. It needs to be out before TPAC.

   SLH: I want better visibility on the WAI website. I can add them as User Requirements

   <Zakim> shawn, you wanted to shawn out in August

   <Ryladog> Thanks, my microphone also fell down...

   <janina> jeanne: Notes heartbeat WCAG3 (3rd quarter) August or early September

   <Zakim> jeanne, you wanted to wCAG3

   <janina> shawn: Noting it--

   <janina> jeanne: Not yet sure what all will be new, so haven't started on the announcements

   <janina> judyNotes that people used to ignore because it was just the TF/CG, but now are paying more attention--which is good, but also requires message planning

   <tzviya> +1 to continue heartbeat messaging (for my own personal reasons_

   <tzviya> https://w3c.github.io/publ-a11y/UX-Guide-Metadata/principles/index.html

   <janina> tzviya: relates to metadata (schema)

   <janina> shawn: Unsure what kind of messaging?

   <janina> shawn: requests for wiki

   <janina> jamesn: Have ARIA Dpub 1.1 CfC closing; not sure how much messaging needed, not much new

   <janina> shawn: If messaging not important, let's pass! Especially in August

   <shawn> tzviya and others please, please, please update https://www.w3.org/WAI/cc/wiki/WAI_Announcement_Drafts

   <shawn> at least list in Planning Upcoming Announcements

   <Zakim> tzviya, you wanted to talk about Accessibility Metadata UX Guide

   <janina> janina: Notes Epub and APA have registries mtg scheduled for TPAC; needs to be something we look to leverage in W3C registries

  Accessibility of new W3C calendaring https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wai-cc/2021Jul/0004.html

   <janina> Judy: asks for any comments?

   <janina> . or who's using it?

   <janina> jeanne: Tried, but stopped as was spamming the list

   <janina> jeanne: not yet cognitively easy--labels could be better

   <janina> jeanne: I struggled and made bad assumptions, e.g.

   <janina> jamesn: Finding it useful once well setup; new enhancements are good

   <janina> jamesn: some fields are not intuitive

   <janina> james: every calendar has that problem!

   <janina> +1

   <janina> actually, +1K

   <tzviya> https://github.com/w3c/calendar/issues

   <janina> tzviya: they're responding only on github

   <janina> tzviya: fixed join link, e.g.

   <janina> jamesn: still requires the meeting organizer to be on top of things

   <janina> jamesn: but sending too early can happen anywhere with any tool

   <janina> Judy: have needed to forward agenda from the invite emails, but any top preamble text I would add got stripped

   <janina> jamesn: we don't have control of the join link, and we probably should

   <janina> Judy: please file github as issues found

   <janina> Judy: and please cc here

  Checking back in on multi-stakeholder representation in WGs and TFs

   <janina> Judy: asks how groups are doing on this?

   <janina> jamesn: ARIA having hard time with participation and people actually able to get needed work done

   <janina> jamesn: features relatively OK, implementations is the problem

   <janina> jamesn: very few people who know ins and outs of aapi's

   <janina> jamesn: if they stop participating, we're in trouble

   <janina> Judy: wonders if an artifact of being so long in virtual space? No hallway opportunities!

   <janina> Judy: asks about virtual coffee checkins

   <janina> james everyone's so busy

   <janina> jamesn: do chat offline, but not specifically individual issues

   <janina> tzviya: references msg from a few weeks ago ....

   <janina> james Yes, noted

   <janina> tzviya: are using lightening talks on: "here's what you missed this year because you're so busy!"

   <janina> jamesn: we get implementations because JD does them

   Janina: I want to have a virtual coffee with James about @@

   <janina> tzviya: notes need more participation beyond blind and lv
