David,
So in the background section it reads:

The Working Group intends to produce updated guidance for accessibility on a regular interval of approximately three years, starting with WCAG 2.1. Depending on the outcome of the requirements development for the next major update to WCAG, it may be necessary to pursue further dot-releases of WCAG until the major release is ready to be completed in time for a scheduled release date.

And in 3.1 it reads:

The Working Group intends to produce regular updates for WCAG guidelines, starting with WCAG 2.1. The public schedule for the updates is documented in the AG WG Project Management Plan.

I thought from our discussion on the call that you wanted the change in the background, so that is where we put it in.

I think that the mention in 3.1 is saying the same thing as in the background, just not restating all of the details.  I would view a change to the 3.1 to address this as editorial, so we could easily make it read:

The Working Group intends to produce updated guidance for accessibility on a regular interval of approximately three years,  starting with WCAG 2.1. The public schedule for the updates is documented in the AG WG Project Management Plan.

Would that address your concern?

Thanks,
AWK

Ohhh... that's why.

I'm looking at section 3.1 Normative Specifications

It doesn't look like my concern was addressed, because we have a section called "normative specifications" in which we say we will do "regular updates" which means we have adopted a different model from WCAG 2 which was was released when it was complete (rather than on a time) and had widespread approval. So it seems like it has been decided that we will ship on a schedule rather than when the spec is ready. Does that not worry anyone else? I was hoping we could come to consensus about whether we were actually going to ship on a set schedule.

Cheers,
David MacDonald

​I believe the consensus changed that sentence.

CALL FOR CONSENSUS – ends Thursday October 13 at 1:00pm Boston time.

This is a CfC seeking WG approval to release the current draft charter for AC review.  The item was surveyed, discussed on the WG call, and approved (http://www.w3.org/2016/10/11-wai-wcag-minutes.html<http://www.w3.org/2016/08/23-wai-wcag-minutes.html#item03>). There was much discussion leading up to the call, and on the call, and the group felt that a consensus opinion was reached on key items.

Draft charter: http://www.w3.org/2016/09/draft-wcag-charter


If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this position, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.

Thanks,
AWK
