Re: CFC - Errata, "Changes of context" definition

Quick clarification: When we make an errata to WCAG 2.1, it is the general policy to apply that to WCAG 2.0 if that is also affected. (I.e. not for WCAG 2.1 specific SCs, but everything else.)

Apologies for the confusion, I hadn’t dealt with that scenario before.

Also, as the pages for each standard don’t get re-published, these errata only appear on the errata pages for each. However, they do go into WCAG 2.2 from the start.

Kind regards,

AG Working Group members,

As we have received only positive feedback leading up to this CfC and no responses indicating that group members could not live with this decision, this CfC is agreed on as a consensus opinion of the working group.

This decision will be recorded at https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Decisions

NB: It does go to both WCAG 2.1 and WCAG 2.0.

Kind regards,


From: Alastair Campbell
