Other business

plh: wanted to report on Testing TF
... very encouraging progress - 30 more tests approved

<pimpbot> Title: Re: ACTION-182 and Issue-27 from Julian Reschke on 2010-07-14 (public-html@w3.org from July 2010) (at lists.w3.org)

plh: TF has more than 800+ canvas tests in the pipeline.
... KrisK is working on a test harness.
... Both MSFT and Opera have offered to submit test results BEFORE CR.
... W3C plans to aggregate and publish these "early" results.
... within one month or so there will be publishable test results.
... There is one canvas test that was failing on many implementations and the TF agreed that several implementation will have to change since the test matched the spec.

pbc: Is that a challenge for other to get involved?

plh: it would be good for other implementors to send in results?
... Plan is to submit results for the "approved" tests only and to increase the number of "approved" tests.

pbc on mute again.

Scribe for next meeting.

Paul volunteers to scribe for Maciej who will be in the Chair.

I defer to Adrian.

Adrian will scribe next week.
