The WCAG Working Group is working to build greater engagement among participants, and as with many groups some of the main obstacles are factors of time and space.  Specifically, 11am Boston time is not an ideal time for participants from around the world to participate in a teleconference, but traditionally that is when key decisions are made within the working group.

We feel that adopting a different decision-making process will help foster greater participation and on today's teleconference the participants present approved a consensus procedure, but did so with a dependency on a review by the participants via the WCAG mailing list.

We ask that participants read and review the proposed procedure, and reply to this list if you have any objections.  Positive comments are welcome also of course, but if no new objections are raised within two working days of this message then the new procedure will be approved.
