12:43:55 [MikeS]
SAZ: updated charter tempalte and more scrutiny of charters
12:44:39 [MikeS]
introduction - overall mission of group
12:46:48 [MikeS]
charter runs until Mar 2010
12:47:24 [MikeS]
Secope - main scope of work
12:49:39 [MikeS]
supporting docs include the guide, HTTP in RDF, pointers, and other auxilary documents
12:49:55 [MikeS]
EARL Schema is only rec-track document
12:50:37 [MikeS]
JK: auxilary documents are already listed in section 2; can we reference?
12:50:48 [shadi]
action: clarify "supporting documents" in point 1 of the scope
12:52:45 [MikeS]
CI: confusion around point about metadata and "input"
12:53:04 [MikeS]
SAZ: provide some sort of guidance for development of tools that may be RDF-agnostic
12:53:06 [MikeS]
12:53:32 [shadi]
action: consider "providing guidance on the development of tools that..." in point 3 of the scope
12:55:03 [MikeS]
SAZ: Success criterion section has no content currently
12:55:39 [MikeS]
request for assistance on stating criteria of emasurement of success
12:56:42 [MikeS]
what are the expectations of ourselves and what should they be from others?
12:56:58 [MikeS]
usually met with implementations of specifications (i.e. EARL Schema)
12:57:27 [MikeS]
EARL is unique - tools can output EARL and tools can process EARL
12:57:58 [MikeS]
JK: criteria targeted at specifications (deliverables) or for the group?
12:58:19 [MikeS]
SAZ: for the group but based on success of rec-track docs
12:59:21 [MikeS]
need not focus on rec-track docs only but these will be most scrutinized
13:00:27 [MikeS]
JK: if funding were provided, test suite for WCAG2 might be one criterion
13:00:44 [MikeS]
CI: don't see relation between funding and mission of working group
13:02:33 [MikeS]
SAZ: agree with CI - funding is distinct from mission of group
13:02:49 [MikeS]
part of core work is definitely development of test suites
13:03:31 [MikeS]
should be a success criteria to develope such suites but make it clear that we're not alone
13:04:20 [MikeS]
possible statement of success criterion: contribute to the development of test suites among WCAG, UAAG, and ATAG (and possibly PF)
13:04:47 [MikeS]
KJ: +1 for contribute; responsibility is not ours alone
13:04:51 [MikeS]
CI: +1
13:04:56 [MikeS]
MS: +1
13:05:26 [MikeS]
MS: lots of test suties around ARIA already so not sure how much work is there
13:06:25 [MikeS]
SAZ: some discussion about evaluation technology and methodology and ER would certainly be involved if that work got off the ground
13:07:35 [shadi]
cotntribute to the development of an updated WAI EValuation Resource Suite
13:09:24 [MikeS]
SAZ: includes evaluation tools, conformance, evaluation in specific contexts
13:09:39 [MikeS]
CI: sounds more like work around supporting documents
13:10:35 [shadi]
cotntribute to the development of an updated WAI EValuation Resource Suite, especially to the development of an evaluation methodology around WCAG 2.0
13:11:02 [shadi]
**potential development
13:11:44 [shadi]
**consider WAI evaluation methodology
13:11:50 [MikeS]
MS: I think "evaluation methodology" will need lots of clarification
13:13:33 [MikeS]
SAZ: while we're not actively supporting WCAG1.0, whatever is supported around WCAG2.0 evaluation methodology
13:14:15 [MikeS]
13:15:06 [MikeS]
JK: Can we expand methodologies to toher technologies (eg mobile)
13:15:15 [MikeS]
SAZ: yes, but probably out of our scope
13:15:49 [MikeS]
MS: why wouldn't be an accessibility evaluation methodology in the context of mobile?
13:16:30 [MikeS]
CI: main use case is accessibility but try to stay as generic as possible with regard to evaluation methodology or technology
13:17:49 [MikeS]
SAZ: EARL implementations must be part of criteria
13:18:13 [MikeS]
who can we count on for these implementations?
13:18:24 [MikeS]
CI: hope to implement but depends on time line and resources
13:18:58 [MikeS]
and, of course, what constitutes an implementation?
13:19:08 [MikeS]
SAZ: focus on output EARL rather than tools that process EARL
13:20:23 [MikeS]
SAZ: Dan C from HTML5 has been doing scripting based on EARL for testing; might want to follow-up with him and build upon his work for implementation of process EARL
13:20:30 [MikeS]
yet, focus should be on output EARL for now
13:20:50 [MikeS]
zakim, unmute michael
13:20:50 [Zakim]
Michael should no longer be muted
13:22:30 [MikeS]
MS: will follow-up with management here at IBM for candidates for implementations; possibly validation engine in ACTF
13:22:36 [MikeS]
13:23:02 [MikeS]
MS: follow-up with Paciello Group on evaluation toolbar
13:23:11 [MikeS]
zakim, mute michael
13:23:11 [Zakim]
Michael should now be muted
13:23:47 [MikeS]
SAZ: list of deliverables
13:26:51 [MikeS]
SAZ: LC should happen prior to large summer break in Europe in Aug
13:27:25 [MikeS]
dropping from LC to WD in May with EARL 1.0 schema
13:27:54 [MikeS]
publish EARL 1.0 schema as LC and most related notes in June
13:28:11 [MikeS]
first working group note for Pointers
13:29:01 [MikeS]
CI: can meet deadline for publication of poitners in RDF
13:29:39 [MikeS]
SAZ: ideal publication of CR for EARL Schema 1.0 at end of July or very early August
13:29:58 [MikeS]
updated notes (e.g. pointers, http)
13:30:20 [MikeS]
four months for implementation: Aug thru Oct
13:30:29 [MikeS]
correction: Aug thru November
13:31:16 [MikeS]
enter PR mode in mid-November and final rec published in December 2008
13:31:22 [MikeS]
along with updates to notes
13:32:01 [MikeS]
MS: So proposed charter ends Dec 2008?
13:32:21 [MikeS]
JK: discussion of moving HTTP, content in RDF to rec-track
13:32:40 [MikeS]
when to do this - before or after final publication in Dec 2008?
13:33:01 [MikeS]
MS: What are the advantages to recommendation v. note?
13:33:18 [MikeS]
SAZ: more visibility as rec
13:34:15 [MikeS]
MS: what's ITF/IETF?
13:35:37 [MikeS]
IETF = Internet Engineering Task Force; describe common internet protocols
13:36:15 [MikeS]
SAZ: might consider HTTP in RDF a rec-track in charter
13:36:49 [MikeS]
"would be published as working group note *or* CR"
13:37:35 [MikeS]
CI: rec, as seen from outside, is more authoritative
13:37:48 [MikeS]
zakim, unmute michael
13:37:48 [Zakim]
Michael should no longer be muted
13:38:16 [MikeS]
SAZ: 04/16 not available and traveling week of 04/23

zakim, take up agendum 3
13:38:26 [Zakim]
agendum 3. "Upcoming meetings and schedule" taken up [from shadi]
13:39:56 [MikeS]
SAZ: 05/07 may also be problematic for many
13:40:09 [MikeS]
no conf on 04/16
13:40:15 [MikeS]
tentative on 04/23
13:40:25 [MikeS]
confirmed for 04/30
