As of right now we say in the proposed charter "The Working Group intends to produce updated guidance for accessibility on a regular interval of approximately three years, starting with WCAG 2.1.”

 

We may determine that we can do it in 2 or we may determine that we need 4, or we may find that 2 is too soon or that 3 is too long. It is currently TBD, as there is not a consensus opinion on the group for 2 years at this point in time.

 

Thanks,

AWK

Andrew and Josh,

 

I was at a presentation today put on by John Foliot, where he stated that we, the WCAG Working Group, will be updating WCAG 2 every two years until Silver comes out. 

 

Is there some background information about how often *we* plan on updating WCAG 2, as was stated in the charter, that I am missing?
