WCAG WG,

Thank you for all the interest in helping the Silver project. Here is a 
list of what we are working on currently that you may be interested in.  
If you have ideas or can help on any of the items below, please email 
Jeanne, Sarah and Shawn (addresses below).  We will get an email list 
set up as soon as Silver becomes a Task Force.

1) During November & December we are building the Stakeholder Map, which 
will be a broad group of people who will help give insight into the 
needs of the broader accessibility community now and in the future. We 
are working on a survey form for people to submit their ideas of people 
or organizations who they think should be a stakeholder.  You can expect 
to hear more about this by 7 November.  We encourage you to start 
thinking about different individuals and stakeholder groups  you feel 
should be involved with the Silver research.

2) We will need a small project management system for tracking the 
deadlines and actions. It needs to be free, have ability to export the 
data to W3C-space and be publicly-viewable.  Please email us if you have 
an idea.

3) We want to contact professors with accessibility-focused programs who 
have grad students to help us with the research phase.  They need to 
know as soon as possible so they can include it in their plans for the 
new semester in January.  One of the major tasks that grad students can 
help us with is drafting valid surveys, so we want professors to 
encourage that for student projects during the upcoming semester.  We 
will be working on objectives for the surveys to give to professors so 
they can include it in their plans. Ideas are welcome.  We want to 
complete this by November 11 so we can start contacting professors.

4) Starting in January, we will be looking for people to help with 
stakeholder interviews.  More details to come, just to put in the back 
of your mind.

The Silver Design Process plan is on the WCAG WG wiki at:
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Process_of_Designing_Silver

Please contact us if you have any ideas or contribution to this current 
work.  We are transitioning from planning to the actual research phase, 
so we will have more contact as we develop the project plan in more detail.

Thanks for all you do.
