RE: WCAG 2.1 update to Laws and Policies?

Hi Shawn and Phill,

I'll offer to contribute some content updates for Laws and Policies. Specifically, I can submit pull requests with examples of EN 301 549 and WCAG 2.1 adoption for web and non-web ICT, which I've researched for our clients and for my upcoming CSUN presentation.

I don't know how to add WCAG 2.1 as a search option, but I wouldn't worry if WCAG 2.0 searches yield WCAG 2.1 examples in country pages for a while. This would be technically accurate because 2.1 is a superset of 2.0.

Hi Phill,

EOWG fully intends to update it. The EOWG participants who were tasked with leading the update work have not been able to make time for it.

We will work on getting other(s) to update it.
