15:10:50 [Detlev]
Richard: The whole website evaluationm should include everything; you can do parts eparately, but not exclude parts
15:10:57 [ericvelleman]
15:11:21 [Detlev]
Richard: refers to library example that must not be excluded
15:13:04 [shadi]
Detlev: some sites would never meet the requirements without exemption
15:13:24 [shadi]
15:13:43 [shadi]
Eric: relates to partial conformance?
15:13:53 [shadi]
Detlev: not sure, would need to read
15:14:03 [Detlev]
Detlev: reiterartes argument for exceptions
15:14:31 [vivienne]
doesn't partial conformance only apply to part of a page that is third-party?
15:14:33 [Detlev]
Eric: suggests that partial conformance would address the problem
15:14:46 [shadi]
ack me
15:14:49 [ericvelleman]
15:15:16 [Detlev]
Shadi: partial conformance relates to reporting phas, not scoping phase
15:15:35 [agarrison]
100% agree with Shadi
15:15:47 [Detlev]
15:16:13 [Detlev]

Shadi: makes an argument for conformance yes/no
15:19:12 [Kerstin]
zakim, mute
15:19:13 [Zakim]
I don't understand 'mute', Kerstin
15:20:22 [Detlev]

ack me
15:20:47 [ericvelleman]
15:22:26 [Detlev]

15:22:41 [Zakim]
ssirois should now be muted
15:24:25 [Detlev]
Vivienne: scope should clearly state what is being evaluated, otherwise it may be fragmented; in reporting, one could explain why the entire website is not conformant, same for 3rd party content
15:24:52 [shadi]
q+ to suggest resolution of adding some notes in the scope section describing the rationale and pointing to the relevant parts in the reporting section
15:25:07 [vivienne]

vivienne should now be muted
15:25:14 [shadi]

15:25:14 [Zakim]
shadi, you wanted to suggest resolution of adding some notes in the scope section describing the rationale and pointing to the relevant parts in the reporting section
15:25:19 [Zakim]
15:25:24 [Detlev]
Vivienne: the methodogy should focus on the whole site because otherwise people would take their pick at will to exclude bits
15:26:10 [Zakim]
15:26:37 [Detlev]
Shadi: issue closed, comments could moved to reporting section, rationale in scope could be added to clarify that
15:27:48 [agarrison]

15:27:53 [Elle]
I support that approach
15:27:54 [richard]

That is good
15:27:57 [vivienne]
15:28:14 [Detlev]
RESOLUTION: issue 48: issue closed, comments could moved to reporting section, rationale in scope could be added to clarify that
15:28:27 [vivienne]
I think we need to be as clear as possible
15:28:37 [Elle]
If we keep it concise, I think a reference to the Reporting section is helpful
15:28:40 [Zakim]
15:29:07 [Detlev]
Alistair: Maybe additional note unnecessary tzo keep text concise
15:29:08 [Zakim]
15:30:21 [Kerstin]
probably not forever
15:30:28 [shadi]
15:30:48 [Detlev]
Next point isuue 84 (Amy Chen)
15:31:28 [Detlev]
Shadi: Since Amy is not formal participant (anymore) issue need not be adressed, but should be, nevertheless
15:31:54 [Detlev]
Shadi: parphrases Amy's point (refer to her comments)

Kerstin: not sure, depends on what those edits will be
15:40:46 [Detlev]
Eric: General idea: techniques are not the checkpoints?
15:41:51 [Detlev]
Kerstin: yes, if techniques are marked as optional, there is still the danger that they will used (seen as mandatory), so even optional use is dangerous
15:42:21 [Detlev]
Kerstin: proposes top move mention of techniques from this section to reporting section
15:42:47 [Detlev]
Shadi: could be useful if site owner marks techniques that have been used in implementation
15:43:09 [Detlev]
Kerstin: but then the test refers to techniques
15:43:17 [Detlev]
Shadi sees no problem with this
15:43:17 [agarrison]
I'm 100% for the current text - possibly with a little editorial work

+1 for earliest possible publication
15:53:22 [Detlev]
