Hello Shadi and all,
Very clear new draft! Good work!
It will be easy to promote and translate!
I have some small comments:

1. I have one concern with the following sentence which may be complicated. I don't remember if it was in the former draft.
"Note: Accessibility should not be left until the evaluation stage; it should be integrated from the
beginning and throughout the project lifecycle — in planning, design, and development".
The first part may be negative.
Proposal: "Note: Accessibility should be integrated from the
beginning and throughout the project lifecycle — in planning, design, and development".
Reason: if you want to take evaluation into account, an evaluation stage should be there, but this stage should be present during the whole process.

2. In "who WCAG-EM" is for, I don't understand following sentence, may be a word missing:
"To successfully follow the methodology in WCAG-EM requires knowledge of WCAG 2.0, accessible web design, assistive technologies, and how people with different disabilities use the Web (as described in the WCAG-EM Required Expertise section)".

3. In "who develops WCAG-EM", there seems to be repeated words in the following sentence:
"The Working Groups are part of the part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)".
did you mean:
"The Working Groups are part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)".
Best and have nice meetings!

Dear Eval TF,

EOWG did an excellent job today on simplifying the WCAG-EM Overview
page. Please have a look and let us know any comments or thoughts you
have on it. We plan to put it in place for the upcoming publication.

Note: we typically use the overview pages as the main reference target
rather than the actual specifications that can be more cumbersome.

Hi EOWG & Eval TF,

When we met in Lyon in November, we agreed to replace the old
Conformance Evaluation page on the WAI website [1] with a WCAG-EM
Overview, similar to the overviews we have for other WAI technical
reports (Notes, guidelines, etc, under w3.org/TR<http://w3.org/TR>) [2].

The WCAG-EM Overview draft that EOWG reviewed [3] is currently at:

We plan review it again on Monday and then replace the old page[1] so
the new Overview is in place for the WCAG-EM announcement.

If you have any comments on the new Overview, please add them to the
wiki at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Conformance_Evaluation> or send
them in e-mail. Note that we can edit it after Monday as well.
