Subject: EOWG: Reading and Agenda for 18 August 2006 Teleconference

Dear EOWG Participants:

An agenda and calling logistics for our 18 August 2006 teleconference follow.

Time:    8:30am - 10:30am U.S. Eastern Time. For other time zones see:
Bridge:  +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)
IRC:     Channel: #eo, server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665
Scribe:  See http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2003/scribes.html

READING: Before the meeting please read the latest draft of the Process Intro ("101") doc, think about the questions listed, and be prepared to discuss them at the teleconference. It is also very helpful to send comments to the list before the meeting.


1. Potential face-to-face meetings
* Brief check in on travel availability

2. W3C Process Intro ("101")
* Discuss revised Rough Draft:

Note Status and Review Level: Complete Rough Draft. Feel free to comment on tone and writing approach. However, it's still rough, so I'd prefer if you not pick too much on the wordsmithing, copyediting level (e.g., grammar, sentence length, awkward wording).

2.a. Overall how does the structure and organization work? How does this draft meet the requirements? Note that there are very different needs from different personas and we're not trying to address all of them in this document. Is this the right balance?

[>] Very good and much clearer, I like the structure and think the balance is right.
[>] When I first looked at the intro I thought it stopped after the 2. bullet 
2.b. Ideas for title? Sub-headings? See:

[>] Think we have to do new brainstorm - this document is too different from previous drafts to use old title suggestions - although it is stil about possibilities for public participation/input and describing the standardization process.
The development of WAI recommendations through the W3C standards process

2.c. What do you think of the proposed image(s)?
[>] Can't find them

2.d. Some little things:
2.d.i. Any strong reactions on use of "public" and "community" throughout the document?
[>] Please explain the use of community and not public in introduction (synonyms?)

2.d.ii. Do we need any text for "5. W3C Recommendation (Web Standard)"? (There is none in this draft) Possibilities include:
- What's in the Process Doc: "A W3C Recommendation is a specification or set of guidelines that, after extensive consensus-building, has received the endorsement of W3C Members and the Director. W3C recommends the wide deployment of its Recommendations. Note: W3C Recommendations are similar to the standards published by other organizations." <>
- Something like in a previous version of this doc: "Recommendations have received significant support from the public, and endorsement by W3C Members and the W3C Director. W3C Recommendations are similar to the standards published by other organizations."
Think 4 is to short.
Still can't see if the public can send comments at stage 3 and 4. To me it looks as if 4 is only announced to the members and taking place in the members confidential space.

* Note updated requirements analysis:
And recent edits listed at:

3. Trends and Issues

4. Schedule for remaining August and September teleconferences
* List availability and regrets for next few weeks

[>]Rest of August and most of September OK
[>] regrets: September 22 (in Bruxelles for JTC 1 SWG-A and DATSCG meetings)

~ Shawn & Judy
[>] Cheers Helle


IRC reminders and tips:
- IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC. All 
substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just in IRC).
- to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes, type 
/me comment - e.g.:
/me hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
will come out:
*shawn hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
