REVIEW - WCAG 2 proposed changes (due by May 28)

The following email outlines the updates proposed and implemented by the WCAG 2 Task Force. It provides a two-week window for Working Group members to review non-normative WCAG 2 updates, and consists of changes in several categories.

Proposed normative change

In addition to the non-normative changes in the sections below, the Task Force has identified a normative change for the Working Group. This is listed here to initiate a normative review process. It will be added to an upcoming call, and if the attending working group members are in general agreement, it will go through a CFC process.

  *   Editorial update to target size (minimum) exceptions #3189<https://github.com/w3c/wcag/pull/3189>

How to provide feedback on the following changes

For proposed substantive or editorial changes:

  1.  Give a thumbs up on the pull request description to agree. (We are looking for >4)
  2.  Or provide feedback in the Conversation to request changes
