But it *did* say two and biennial before people objected, didnt it? Let's be considerate please.

At the time Wayne emailed, it did not say two, that had been changed 3 days earlier, so I assumed that he was looking at the document in its current form.

Wayne,
The charter has no commitment to a two year plan, in fact the word “two” doesn’t appear in the charter at all.

There is a stated intent for a three year schedule: "The Working Group intends to produce updated guidance for accessibility on a regular interval of approximately three years, starting with WCAG 2.1.”

Does three years work better for you?

Thanks,
AWK
