Minutes are linked from <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Minutes.html>
"Draft minutes are available at the end of the teleconference at the URI: http://www.w3.org/YYYY/MM/DD-eo-minutes where YYYY is the year, MM is the month, and DD the date."
It is the date UTC, so for the ATAG meeting minutes, it's the next day for US folks -- i.e. meeting Wed 13 evening US is http://www.w3.org/2013/11/14-eo-minutes

Back in Sept 2012 we added: "Currently, ATAG 2.0 is a mature draft and we expect that it will not change significantly. We recommend that you use the ATAG 2.0 draft in most cases, understanding that it might change." The Sept 2013 update replaced "What is in ATAG 1.0" with "What is in ATAG 2.0".

What other focus move is needed?

>         [Sharron will craft sample language for Elevator Pitch by Friday's EO metting]

a brief note is at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/ATAG_review#ATAG_Overview>

>     - Focus shift will follow the example of the Overview doc put in place when WCAG was in transition
>         [Shawn - please point us to where that transition document is archived]

per above, I don't understand what is needed.

>     - Draft of Overview for the transition period will be written based on that approach
>         [Andrew, we nominated you to write that draft with your W3C background and great writing skills (and of course since you were not there it was easy to nominate you - grin)]


>     2. Jeanne reported great interest in template development or at least strong outreach to Moodle, Wordpress, and Druple practitioners who have a commitment to accessibility. Group members will reach out to those communities and find ways for them to collaborate with the ATAG effort.
