Discussion on SC numbering


On the agenda tomorrow is a discussion on SC numbering.  We last discussed this a few months ago and had a wiki page of different options (https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/WCAG_2.1_SC_Numbering).

The last discussion I could find is here ( http://www.w3.org/2016/07/19-wai-wcag-minutes.html#item03) and in that discussion we seemed to be getting consensus on model #2, which essentially says that we will:

  *   Not modify existing SC, instead adding a new SC that increases or adds to the existing related SC.
  *   Add new SC at the end of a guideline section. For example, if adding a new AA SC to Guideline 2.3, where 2.3.1 (A) and 2.3.2 (AAA) currently are, the new SC would be 2.3.3 (AA).

Think about this, discuss it here on the list, and we will talk about it on the call tomorrow.
