Topic: Disposition of Comments
15:05:42 [shadi]
15:05:51 [shadi]
EV: new disposition of comments
15:05:55 [shadi]
...just updated
15:06:04 [shadi]
...lots of work from me on it
15:06:14 [shadi]
...includes discussion from last week
15:06:27 [shadi]
...did the changes in a new Editor Draft
15:06:44 [shadi]
...for where there is agreement in the survey
15:06:44 [MoeKraft]
MoeKraft has joined #eval
15:06:50 [shadi]
...for example for comment ID #8
15:07:07 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:07:07 [shadi]
...better example is comment ID#11
15:07:29 [shadi]
...made the change in an updated Editor Draft
15:07:31 [Zakim]
15:07:34 [ericvelleman]
15:07:44 [shadi]
...this new draft is now also online
15:07:57 [shadi]
...fresh from the oven
15:08:30 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:08:42 [shadi]
...column 2 shows the status
15:08:57 [shadi]
...for example for ID #2 points to on-going discussion
15:09:13 [shadi]
...this way we can keep track of the current status of each comment
15:10:15 [shadi]
...for example for ID #5 or #7, did proposal directly into the Editor Draft and point to it from the disposition of comment
15:10:30 [shadi] can survey these proposals and get group input
15:10:43 [Detlev]
15:11:02 [shadi]
MK: ID #5 took me to the top of the new Editor Draft
15:11:21 [shadi] there a way to link directly to the relevant section?
15:11:42 [shadi]
15:11:50 [ericvelleman]
15:11:53 [Detlev]
ack me
15:12:11 [shadi]
DF: realize that this is quite complex now with so many comments
15:12:24 [shadi]
...also note drop of focus within the group
15:12:44 [shadi]
...not sure if easy to track things in 3 different places
15:12:59 [shadi]
...for me survey is the best way to respond to comments
15:13:16 [shadi]
...DoC and ED are static and cannot respond on
15:13:31 [shadi]
...not good where things need discussion
15:13:36 [Detlev]
Zakim, mute me
15:13:37 [Zakim]
Detlev should now be muted
15:13:49 [shadi]
EV: agree; taking things that need discussion into surveys
15:13:56 [Detlev]
OK .. I see
15:14:06 [shadi]
...sometimes discussing specific comments and sometimes more general things
15:14:23 [Detlev]
15:14:28 [shadi]
...sometimes need to propose text in a draft and ask for input on it
15:14:31 [shadi]
q- later
15:14:54 [shadi]
...sometimes also editorial things
15:15:40 [Detlev]
ack me
15:15:50 [ericvelleman]
15:16:09 [shadi]
DF: think reluctance to repond is the amount of comments and places to focus on
15:16:14 [shadi]
15:16:33 [shadi]
...think surveys are good to focus things on
15:16:55 [shadi]
...doing all in parallel is difficult

saz: thanks to Eric for the hard work
15:18:21 [MartijnHoutepen]
... agree that it is overwhelming and because of the holidays there is less participation
15:18:21 [Detlev]
Shadi: thanls Eric for tremendous work, explains reasons why we have a bit id a slow down
15:18:50 [Detlev]
Shadi: agrees that surveys are the place to contribute
15:19:26 [Detlev]
Shadi: some comments are easier to address in the draft, then having a pointer to draft in the survey
15:19:35 [ericvelleman]
15:20:49 [Detlev]
Shadi: disposition of comments affords overview-... Q to Eric - does that reflect your view?
15:20:53 [shadi]

...will link more from surveys

15:27:40 [Detlev]
15:27:45 [shadi]

15:27:50 [shadi]
...some points in there may start new discussion
15:28:00 [Bim]
Bim has joined #eval
15:28:19 [Zakim]
15:28:23 [shadi]

15:28:57 [ericvelleman]
15:28:57 [Detlev]
ack me
15:29:43 [shadi]
DF: maybe worth while to reopen last survey and ping people
15:30:06 [shadi]
EV: quite some discussion on the last question
15:30:12 [shadi]
...might be OK
15:30:53 [shadi]
ack me
15:31:18 [shadi]
DF: don't mind several surveys
15:31:32 [shadi]

this allows people to reuse the methodology in many more situations without actually broadening the scope of the document.
15:36:59 [shadi]
DF: question on rational to resolution to ID #4
15:37:27 [shadi]
...what is the difference between broadening the scope and providing use cases?
15:37:33 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:37:49 [shadi]
...had commented on not constraining the uses
15:38:07 [shadi]
...for example make usable during development
15:38:22 [shadi]
...but not sure why decision is "no change"
15:38:26 [shadi]
15:38:43 [shadi]
...not sure methodology needs to look very different
15:38:57 [shadi]
...maybe change the report and certainly not accessibility statement
15:39:14 [ericvelleman]
15:39:19 [shadi]
...think concern is that document will get complicated
15:39:20 [shadi]
ack me
15:39:45 [shadi]

EV: still on-going discussion
15:39:58 [shadi]
...e-mail thread going on
15:40:25 [shadi]
...seems to be mistake in the disposition of coments
15:40:33 [shadi]
...not the current rationale
15:40:37 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:41:43 [shadi]
ack me
15:42:28 [shadi]
15:42:45 [shadi]
MK: also discussed not being able to make a statement of compliance when using during development
15:43:07 [ericvelleman]
15:44:22 [Detlev]
Shadi: difference between broadening scope and introducing usecases - if we include option for using WCAG-EM during develoopment we may have scope crewep, users asdking for introducing extra things
15:45:00 [Detlev]
Shadi: if we focus on main use case we can still encourage application of WCAG-EM in othe contexts / use cases
15:45:46 [shadi]
DF: agree basically with that
15:46:04 [shadi]
...can specify main purpose
15:46:15 [shadi]
...but also explain and encourage use during development
15:46:28 [shadi]
...of course noting that will not lead to conformance
15:47:26 [Detlev]

Topic: Discussion in survey evaltfq6
15:48:55 [shadi]
EV: valuable input from Detlev
15:49:17 [shadi]
...will reopen it and ask people to answer or edit their responses as needed
15:49:19 [Detlev]
ack me
15:50:00 [shadi]
DF: maybe good to remind people that they can go back and change their responses
15:50:09 [shadi]
...did not know about that feature

you never get the same sense of overview on the mailing list!
15:52:05 [ericvelleman]
15:52:30 [shadi]
EV: as long as comments are relatively concise it helps having it in one place
15:53:08 [shadi]
EV: planning to do call next week
15:53:15 [shadi]
...then the next in January
