Hi all,

Two outreach updates:

1) We started the first distribution list in German about Web Accessibility :
http://access.gmd.de/index.phtml?lng=en&style=4&content=list

2) The German parlament has modified substantially the draft of the law
equivalent to the ADA in the paragraph related to Web Accessibility. WAI 
compliance is mentioned (no level), but there is no real obligation if 
enough excuses support the no-compliance: lack of resources, etc. (bad news).
