1. Editors' note in WCAG 3 FPWD on inclusion

The chairs propose an editor's note in the Background on WCAG 3 section of the FPWD, requesting feedback on how to improve inclusion, with the following text:

W3C strives to be as inclusive as possible, and has actively sought participation and input from a broad range of stakeholder groups. We recognize, however, that there is always room for improvement in practices to support inclusion and representation. As you evaluate this document, please consider whether there are ways the Working Group can better support your review, feedback, or inclusion within the process of creating this standard. We welcome feedback on this question as part of your comments.

I think the following sentence needs some rewrite as I think this is about ways the WG can improve the document and that is not what is says right now.

"As you evaluate this document, please consider whether there are ways the Working Group can better support your review, feedback, or inclusion within the process of creating this standard."

Reads like:

- consider whether the Working Group can better support your review (it's not about supporting the review, but act upon review comments)
- consider whether the Working Group can better support feedback (it's not about support the feedback, but act upon the feedback)
- consider whether the Working Group can better support your inclusion (don't know what 'support your inclusion' hints at / means?!)

The chairs propose adding a section to to the Acknowledgment appendix of WCAG 3 FPWD recognizing Participants who made notable contributions to the creation of this document section of the FPWD, requesting feedback on how to objectively identify key contributers, with the following text:

This section will document key contributors. The method of identifying these individuals is in process and a list will be included in the next draft. This list will be updated for each subsequent draft.

Responder Notable Contributions Section and Editor's NoteComments
Andrew Somers Add the section and editor's note with the current wording At the moment, I can see at least four broad categories:

* Major contributors: those that did significant research, authorship, and/or technology development that was used substantially.

* Associate contributors: those that assisted major contributors in a material way, ideally nominated/suggested by the major contributors.

* Administrative contributors, those with the focus of managing goals and resource development.

* Participating contributors: Those that regularly contributed feedback, opinion, or evaluation notes.

Laura Carlson Add the section and editor's note with the current wording

Bruce Bailey Add the section and editor's note with changes Sorry, but I do not agree with the "key" contributors adjective, since that feels very arbitrary to me, and would strongly prefer to have that one word deleted. (i.e., <q>This section will document contributors. The method...</q>)

I would note that recognizing contributions towards *both* WCAG 1.0 and 2.0 also each spanned several years worth of activity. I do not agree that <q>notable contributions</q> for 3.0 needs to be significantly different in format from what we ended up with 1.0 and/or 2.0.

That said, I can live with any of these three options, and would not like to see the FCPWD delayed further.
Michael Gower Other If you don't come up with criteria acceptable to all, you may not be able to proceed. Why not make the language a little softer. "This section is intended to document key contributors...a list should be included...

Andrew Kirkpatrick Add the section and editor's note with the current wording
David MacDonald Do not add the section and editor's note It's tough to do this well... there are a hundred names on the WCAG 2.1 with no key contributors.
Would key contributors to 2.0 be key contributors to 3.0 since it is built on 2.0, 2.1?
Alastair Campbell Add the section and editor's note with the current wording I've changed my answer from "Do not" to agree with the addition, thanks to Jeanne's comments in the meeting. However, if we don't agree on the criteria, we should have the option to drop the section.
Janina Sajka Add the section and editor's note with changes OK with edits from today's AGWG as recorded in minutes.
