Dear EOWG,

We still have an on-going issue with the document title that is not very 
catchy and telling - can we do better?

The currently document title:
  - Short Term Website Accessibility Improvements

Key messages that we wanted to convey with the title include:
  - "emergency - I need immediate help!"
  - "these are only temporary fixes, not solutions"
  - "this is for project managers and team leaders"

Terms that we wanted to avoid with the title include:
  - "quick": relative term, and some steps may take several days
  - "simple": implementing accessibility is not always be simple
  - anything that implies completeness or good practice

Interesting previous runner-ups for the title included:
  - Interim Website Accessibility Repairs
  - Provisional Website Accessibility Repairs
  - Temporary Website Accessibility Repairs

Please chime in on the discussion thread, to help move this forward:

(Please do not respond here to avoid a duplicate discussion thread)

Thanks,
   Shadi
