Topics for this period

Framework Working Drafts updated

Three of the QA Framework family of documents have been revised and published:

Comments form the QA IG and the public comprise a major contribution to the advancement of these documents. Feedback on these documents is especially important since this is the last public drafts of these parts of the framework before their "last call". Feedback is welcome and should be sent to this public list <www-qa@w3.org>.

The schedule and roadmap for the QA Framework has been updated to reflect the recent publications as well as other schedule changes (e.g., for the Test Guidelines) and is availble at http://www.w3.org/QA/WG/Roadmap

QA Process document under development

A draft outline of the QA Process document was produced and circulated to the WG for comment. This QA Process document extends many of the principles of the W3C Process document and tailors it to the QA WG, discusses the relation between the QA WG and other W3C WGs, and provides the QA WG's test material process. This document satisfies the requirements for a QA Process document as specified in the Operational Guidelines.

License for Test Material explored

In an exchange of email with Joseph Reagle, the QA WG explored the need for a new W3C licensee, this one for test materials. Currently, the W3C Document and Software licenses are being used - with some test materials using the Document license and others using the Software license. After some disucssion, it was determined that a new license for Test Materials was not necessary and that the Document license would provide the necessary protection and ensure the integrity of the test materials.

Education and Outreach Activities

Karl Dubost made a QA presentation at the recent W3C AC meeting on what we are doing in the QA Activity. For QA resourses and information, the QA WG created and maintains a W3C QA Library that contains a list of QA reference documents (the Matrix, QA Framework family of documents and more), QA periodical publications (including these monthly summaries), and education and outreach materials (including tutorials, common user-agent problems, and techniques to improve your Web site). The QA Library of resources is available at: http://www.w3.org/QA/Library
