Evidence that WCAG 2.0 WG 'promised' to cover Cognitive issues in the next version of WCAG

Dear WG participants,


At their behest, I had a meeting with the WCAG chairs this morning about the continued unrest in the WG. They would like us to return to a time when work was getting done, and stability was the norm. So would I. In that vein, they stated they want to make decisions on the direction of the WG based on facts, not conjecture. 


This morning, as in the past on an occasion or two, I have been asked to provide ‘evidence’ that when we were wrapping up our WCAG 2.0 work, before publication, that much of the work that those who worked on the Cognitive issues SC at that time, were very disappointed and unhappy that the bulk of the recommendations for those SC were either moved to Level AAA or not included – and that we, the WG ‘assured’ (promised is my word) those people that if/when WCAG was updated, that Cognitive Issues would be addressed.


​​​​​Does anyone have time to research this, and find either minutes or something that supports my recollection – that we did in fact, do that?


Thanks in advance.
