AGWG’ers,

As we have received substantial negative feedback during this CfC, this CfC fails and is not agreed on as a consensus opinion of the working group. We will need to discuss this on Tuesday’s call and possibly issue another CFC to address the question of focusing on a WCAG 2.2, which was intended to be the primary aspect of this question.

This decision will be recorded at https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Decisions<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FWAI%2FGL%2Fwiki%2FDecisions&data=02%7C01%7C%7C1ab6006ec2be48e88f9008d4a210961e%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636311639507586899&sdata=IafGoKjeQf7zBqxVj8m380hh8%2BWgU1VfPa2tZjq0Bx8%3D&reserved=0>.

Call For Consensus — ends Friday February 22nd at 3:30pm Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed how to focus the efforts of the group over the next 12-24 months and the proposal is that the WG can address the short-term need for improvements to Techniques and Understanding and begin to ramp-up work within the Working Group on Silver as well as commit to a WCAG 2.2, which will avoid the possibility of a large gap in time between the June 2018 WCAG 2.1 and Silver reaching Rec.

Proposed Schedule
March 2019-April 2019: 45% Techniques and Understanding, 45% Silver, 10% WCAG 2.2 (most drafting of new SC in ad hoc groups or TFs)
May 2019-forward: 45% WCAG 2.2, 45% Silver, 10% Techniques and Understanding maintenance

Survey: https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/WCAG22_yesno/results


Call minutes: https://www.w3.org/2019/02/19-ag-minutes.html#item11


If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.

Thanks,
AWK
