We will be issuing a Call for Review early next week, 12 September, for
some evaluation documents. All participants in good standing need to
complete the review form. Please plan to review the documents described
below early in the week and complete the Call for Review form by
Thursday 15 September.

See below for details and information on what is ready for review right
now. Comments received by Monday morning Europe time can be addressed
before the Call for Review.


In previous EOWG meetings we decided to make some interim changes to the
Evaluation Resource Suite, including breaking up into separate pages:
EOWG decided to address only open change log items and serious concerns
with the content of the existing pages, and to hold off on any
significant editing and minor issues. We expect to do additional minor
editing in the 4th quarter (4Q) of 2005, and to re-write much of the
evaluation documents in 2006 with changes based on WCAG 2.0 and other

In today's teleconference[1], EOWG agreed to put the evaluation
documents on the new site at different stages, rather than waiting until
all of the documents are complete. The plan is:
* Evaluating Accessibility Overview - update on new site with the next 3
documents below (target: 16 Sept)
* Preliminary Reviews - put on new site as soon as feasible (target: 16
Sept), edit more later
* Conformance Evaluations - put on new site as soon as feasible (target:
16 Sept), edit more later
* Specific Contexts (was Special Considerations) - put on new site as
soon as feasible (target: 16 Sept), edit more later
* [User Evaluation] (new content) - complete & put on new site in 4Q
* Selecting Tools (new content) - put on new site as soon as feasible
(target: 16 Sept, might have minor edits after the sortable tools list
is done
* Tools List (already on new site) - leave version as is on new site for
now, complete sortable version & put on new site in 4Q 2005
* Review Teams (already on new site) - review in 4Q 2005
* Reporting Template (already on new site) - review in 4Q 2005


The following documents will be included in the  Call for Review:
- Evaluating Web Accessibility
- Preliminary Review...
- Conformance Evaluation...
- Specific Contexts...
- Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools

As explained above, the focus of the review is on serious concerns
before this draft is posted to the new site, and not on low priority
revisions that can be postponed for later. (Feel free to also record
ideas for later revisions, and clearly indicate them as such.)


These documents are complete, yet there are a few open changes from
today recorded in the changelogs, the minutes from today's
teleconference[1], and the wai-eo-editor's list:
Shadi plans to incorporate these changes by Monday, 12 September. 

If you have additional comments, please clearly indicate if you think
they are *required* to be addressed before this version is put on the
new site, or if they are *optional* for this version and may be
postponed and recorded for the next revision at the editor's discretion.
Copyedits go to the editors list: wai-eo-editors@w3.org and content
comments go to the main EOWG list w3c-wai-eo@w3.org


We plan to post the Call for Review form on Monday 12 September. If we
can get sufficient replies to the Call for Review by Thursday 15
September, we should be able to post the pages to the new site on the
16th. (Otherwise, it will be another 2 weeks after that due to Shawn &
Shadi's schedules.)

Thanks for your efforts in reviewing the evaluation documents.

~ Shawn & Shadi & Judy
