    APA expecting XAUR to have published by 28 July

    tzviya: yes

    judy: Is it going well?

    gk: Mappings is published on the 29th. So, done!

    gk: User Experience Guide is a CG doc that should be done by
    the 28th

    judy: Announcements?

    gk: Will follow up once we finish

    judy: connect with Shawn?

    gk: yes

    judy: Notes Shawn appreciates heads up of 5 days and
    predictable steps

    gk: me too!

   FYI, staff transition planning

    judy: Notes announcement from Shadi and thanks people for their
    well wishes in response

    judy: Notes 3-4 month notice

    judy: Notes lots of coordination; we're working on making the
    transition smooth

    judy: Expecting W3C will fill the position

    judy: Looking at workload balance in the process but expect
    news in the next few weeks

    judy: If any questions or concerns, please feel free now or
    ping me later

    judy: Smooth transition is the top priority

    gk: Will his position be recruited in Europe?

    judy: Funds for that are in Europe; and it's fully funded
    externally; so will need E.U. work authorization

    judy: Ideas welcome, of course

    judy: Permutations are possibilities, but the work
    authorization is key

    brent: Notes Shadi's involvement with specific EO projects;
    will new person pick that up?

    judy: Looking for maximum smoothness of transition

    judy: But, we're also doing a review of our work and work
    organization; so may be some rebalancing

    judy: Many things are defined in funding, so significant
    deviation very unlikely

    brent: We've been looking what was he involved in and what was
    he actually managing ... Don't forsee problems, but we're
    trying to figure it out

    brent: We also need to re-evaluate our work

    judy: Suggest you assume continuity as a baseline

    brent: We plan to share any gaps we identify ... some
    scheduling challenges in the review timeline ... but sooner not
    later

    judy: Notes Shadi had lots of work in EO

    judy: Notes also ACT work

    judy: Checks with people re intersections with Shadi ...

    judy: Asks anything to sync on ...

    judy: Notes Steve is following up on COGA ...

   Update back from WAI Extended meeting

    judy: Recalls asking input for team mtg that is now in process

    judy: some questions from here have been taken up

    judy: we're trying to take a comprehensive overview

    judy: team discussion included wcag 3 expectations

    judy: Any input at this stage?

   Periodic check-in on how WAI groups are doing on their chartered
   milestones?

    judy: thanks group for input last time

    judy: asks whether anyone ready for quick update? Or perhaps
    plan for next mtg?

    james: Notes ARIA is under staffed to stay up with the
    timjeline, so very behind

    judy: And ARIA needs certain skillset

    james: some good new folks, but getting people well integrated
    we need implementations in browsers

    james: competing priorities get in the way

    judy: dialog is ongoing?

    james: totally, except firefox which has fallen off w3c

    james: we have webkit and chromium; speed just isn't what we'd
    like

    james: sometimes we pull things out of the spec; sometimes we
    run into challenges we didn't forsee and need to redo spec

    james: we're stuck because the req on browser implementation

    judy: Notes different approaches in the past; but unsure of
    current fit --workshop and submit patch?

    james: potentially hard; approvers are already in group, for
    instance

    judy: virtual workshop?

    james: competing priorities

    tzviya: Notes people care much more about ARIA than they often
    let on; suggests some brainstorming about how to get motion out
    of that

    judy: suggests a call phps for a group

    janina: asks about APA charter progress ...

    judy: possibly a miscommunication a few weeks ago ... unclear
    whether responses on charter went out

    judy: think APA is close to done, but need to close all the
    loops

    judy: asks re rec track items

    becky: personalization is late according to current charter

    judy: and new charter?

    becky: fairly close

    judy: Asks EO has timeline deliverables?

    brent: items part of E.U. funding that have deadline
    expectations; but not in charter

    brent: charter has 2 years left

    brent: we've progress on almost every deliverable; we're in
    good shape

    judy: Good, expect we'll check in phps quarterly

   Periodic check-in on transparency of Task Forces, and TF sub-groups

    judy: raises discoverability of task forces and work ongoing
    ... have had recent complaint ...

    judy: Notes TFs should be visible from main page. Any subgroups
    in current TFs?

    brent: no subgroups

    tzviya: we know the struct because we meet

    Judy: concern is people around the planet finding work they may
    need to be aware of
