LW: We need to clear as many bugs as possible, either by closing them, moving them to Github if the part of the spec is handled there, or by assigning them to the relevant people.
... Adrian Bateman put together this bug breakdown http://github.adrianba.net/webstandards/HTML5-bugs.htm

<SteveF> yes

LW: There are 35 outstanding bugs.

<chaals> s/:(//

LW: Suggest we move to Skype instead of WebX for this call.

<SteveF> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&component=HTML5%20spec&keywords=a11y%2C%20&keywords_type=allwords&list_id=57331&order=bug_id&product=HTML%20WG&query_based_on=&query_format=advanced

SF: It's difficult to actually work on bugs because of the way the spec is generated.



<chaals> scribe: chaals

SF: The bug should stay open until we can make it happen easily

LW: anything else to do?

RESOLUTION: This is waiting until we can do it easily

<LJWatson> CMN: We'll add a comment to say it's been triaged.

<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16186

RESOLUTION: 13553 is waiting for the HTML spec to be editable

<LJWatson> CMN: Will add comment and assign to me.


<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16783

RESOLUTION: 16186 is for chaals to sort out

<LJWatson> SF: Willl look at it and verify the response.


<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18385

<LJWatson> CMN: Is rel=glossary still part of HTML5?

CMN: This is asking for rel="glossary" - is that still valid?

<LJWatson> SF: It's not conforming in HTML5.

<SteveF> http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/links.html#linkTypes

<LJWatson> CMN: Assigned to me.


RESOLUTION: 18385 is for chaals - needs a bunch of pieces to fix

<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=19054

SF: Hixie's comment…

<LJWatson> SF: Suggest this could be resolved later.

<LJWatson> CMN: It's a trivial editorial fix.

<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=19159

comment is "waiting for HTML spec to be editable"

<LJWatson> SF: Will comment that we'll wait for the spec to be editable.


<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20987

<LJWatson> CMN: If there was a header called "TQ", people want to know what TQ stands for.

<LJWatson> LW: Isn't that what abbr is for?

<LJWatson> CMN: No, it's what the title attribute is about. I'll take this one.


<LJWatson> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22050

<LJWatson> LW: This is wider than accessibility.

<LJWatson> CMN: It's editorial.

<LJWatson> SF: It's wider than editorial.

<LJWatson> CMN: We should take accessibility keywords off.

<LJWatson> SF: Ok, done.

<LJWatson> SF: Suggest we won't fix this.

<LJWatson> LW: Do we want to close it?

<LJWatson> SF: Yes.

<LJWatson> CMN: It's probably won't fix for now.

<LJWatson> LW: Agreed.
