1. WCAG 2.0 Working Draft 17 May 2007 Comments
   - Our submitted comments are available on EOWG list now
   - We've got a few areas that we need to clarify...

   1.1. Clarification of submitted comment
   - What did we mean by our comment on success criteria 3.1.4?
         [see "Abbreviations" at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/#meaning ]
         WCAG WG's question to us & my reply so far:

   1.2. Clarification or withdrawal of two of our new comments
    - We sent two comments which were still in progress
         comment #6 is regarding conformance requirements
         and #15 is regarding conformance referencing
    - Let's either specify what we mean, or withdraw these

2. Web accessibility current situation, EOWG short-term focus
    - Let's refocus.
   2.1. What are the current hot issues in Web accessibility? What is the 
"word on the street" about W3C WAI's work?

   2.2. Priorities for August 2007
   - What short-term activity do you think would have the most impact on 
Web accessibility and adoption of WAI's work:
   (Note that the only EOWG editor available for EOWG projects in August is 
Shawn, and so projects with other editors will not be completed in August.)
   (Note that we're looking to pick *one* of these.)

   a. WAI & WCAG handouts - updating the handouts list at 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/flyer/Overview and promoting their translation and 
   b. WCAG 2.0 presentation - providing slides and speakers notes for 
presenters to use
   c. Refining the Quick Reference to provide more customization options 
and a better user interface
   d. Providing basic guidance for "average" web designers and developers 
(although this would take a long time)
     d.1. Something like the Quick Tips 
     d.2. As an option to display in the Quick Reference 
     d.3. As an appendix to "Improving the Accessibility of Your Web Site"
      (see list at: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/cl-retrofit#start )
   e. Writing up the Benefits of WCAG 2.0 (we have some notes in the 
Requirements doc at http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/cl-transition1to2 )
   f. Communicating the importance of accessibility support in authoring tools
   g. Updating translations priorities and encouraging translations of 
existing material
   h. Components of Web Accessibility: A Brief Tutorial 
<http://www.w3.org/Talks/wai-components/all-extended.htm >

NOTE: If you reply to this email, please change the subject line. If you 
are sending regrets, add "Regrets" to the front of the current subject 
line. If you are commenting on a document or topic, put the document title 
or topic in the subject line. Thanks.

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
