Introduction of participants

ron: accessibility foundation netherland, working on supportEAM, now BenToWeb

CS: Uni Leuven - participant of WCG WG and BentoWeb project

CV: FIT - Fraunhofer Insitiut, leading BenToWeb

Working procedure for development of test samples

SA: 3 more participants, not on the call
... starting extenting techniques WCAG 2.0 - how well implementable are they?
... 1. bringing feed-back for WCAG WG / 2. developing test samples (dynamic content, not necessarily files)
... test samples, e.g. for tool developers to test their tools
... appr. 4 hours/ week - results go to ERT and WCAG WG
... best is to split up work and assign - discussion mainly on mailing list, wrap up on telecon
... analysing techniques document, lot's of test samples from different developers
... within the next 3 month

CS: question is - how to prioritize the work
... sufficient techniques / general techniques / technology specific techniques

CS: first HTML then script
... first HTML techniquest level 1, then move over to level 2

CV: making clear plan of the procedure, making description of the test to be iunderstandable by human and machine
... in BenToWeb developed test suite - has test description language - now moving the test samples to last draft

SA: agreement to CS procedure - for the next call, have all have look to level tech.

CS: level by level or technology by tech.?

SA: starting with one technology, HTML
... start with HTML level 1, then coordinate with WCAG for the next couple of calls

Tools for storage of samples and test metadata

SA: need to store the test samples, CVS, wikis ...
... building repository of test samples, working on storage of test samples ... metadata for automatic access

CV: TCDL schema available on the web, apache style license

SA: should not develop from scratch .. lot's of stuff to pick up

<Christophe> Test Case Description Language 1.1: http://bentoweb.org/refs/TCDL1.1/ (RDDL file; XSD contains documentation)

<Christophe> BenToWeb test (samples) suite, mapped to WCAG 2.0 30 June 2005 WD: http://www.bentoweb.org/ts/XHTML1/home; being updated to WCAG LCWD

CV: time should be spent in setting up metadata for the test files
... TCDL is publicly available

<scribe> ACTION: CS please, send out information on TCDL and it's relation to QA [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2006/07/26-tsdtf-minutes.html#action01]

CV: storing information: developers of test cases also develop metadata files - stored in CVS
... the whole test suite can be also browsed in the internet
... always have a test case with a description file

<ChrisR> http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/servlet/ShowGuide?name=wcag-2-0-aa.xml&newsort=guide

chris: publicly available test suite, each test has test procedure
... tests are described within XML files

CS: how to track changes in the existing WCAG tech.?

SA: need to coordinate with WCAG CV and CS
... reviewing test procedures, comparing to the objectives of the tech. - ensuring that issues not already mentioned in bugzilla
... for next meeting: lot's of information to description languages, see how we can user this information for this TF.
