i just wanted to remind/inform participants that there is a list 
named wai-xtech@w3.org which is a public list that is used for
cross-WAI discussions that cut across and influence all of the 
work done by the individual WAI working and interest groups

the really important thing about xtech is that it provides a 
forum where cross-WAI issues can be discussed without 
cross-posting to multiple lists to which one may or may not be 
subscribed -- this avoids the splitting of threads on a common 
theme, which would benefit from cross-WAI attention

an example of the use of wai-xtech is discussions in public 
about ARIA 1.0 -- ARIA is being developed by the PF (Protocols
& Formats) WG, which works in member-confidential space, so 
wai-xtech serves as a means of discussing ARIA development 
and deployment for those within the WAI without access to 
member-confidential space and for those from without, in 
particular developers and implementors who want to get 
correct, quality information direct from the source

another use of wai-xtech@w3.org has been to highlight 
discussions in the HTML Accessibilty Task Force that affect
all WAI efforts

while it is possible to subscribe to wai-xtech@w3.org, it is 
an open list, which means that one does not need to be 
subscribed to it in order to post to it, making it possible
for individuals to keep up with the list via the list's 


to request a subscription to wai-xtech@w3.org, email 


with the subject line "request to join wai-xtech"

hope this helps, gregory.
It is better to ask some of the questions than to know 
all the answers.                      -- James Thurber
