TF reports

Testing Task Force

<krisk> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-test-infra/2013OctDec/0045.html

Kris: met on Tuesday
... James is replacing a big dependency
... wptserve
... smaller lightweight server
... trying not to break things
... thanks to Robin, Canvas tests are fixedf
... they are all working now.

<krisk> http://w3c-test.org/web-platform-tests/master/2dcontext/drawing-images-to-the-canvas/2d.drawImage.9arg.destsize.html now works plus others!

Kris: some tests will be created for some parts of the canvas spec. should show up pretty soon.

Paul: regarding the upcoming f2f: session on testing and status from CR point of view
... will the TF have members in Shenzen to give us an update for html 5 and canvas spec?

Kris: will check.

Paul: on the canvas 2d one, are there any updated results?

Kris: yes, we do... produced 3 weeks ago.
... will look for the link
... will follow up by email

Paul: please, since we want to know the status of the a11y features

Janina: regarding longdesc tests, we'd like to have them there

<krisk> sure I can help or another person

Janina: if Kris or someone can help, that would be appreciated

plh: I gave some pointers to Mark yesterday

Accessibility Task Force

Janina: we can now show implementations for longdesc, we're done with testing.
... and we have a call for consensus on the responses to the comments
... closing on Monday
... so we feel we're ready to move forward
... we talked in the past about moving to CR
... conversation on this isn't done yet
... one point is to get more attention and get more implementers on board

Paul: the TF has to decide whether to get longdesc to REC as standalone or rolls it back into HTML5.0
... Plan 2014 didn't cover the case that you would do both
... so more discussion needed next week

Janina: yes, we're trying to balance it with the canvas discussion next week as well
... no decision from the TF yet
... I think we're about wrapped in the tweaks
... but we're pretty much from the task force perspective
... Steve wants to step down as co-facilitator for the a11y tf
... not enough time
... will continue as participation in the TF and editor
... but not a co-facilitator anymore
... Charles and myself will stay on board
... may be a need to add more in the future
... but not in a hurry
... Thank you to Steve for his effort

Paul: On behalf of the Team, WG Chairs and the A11Y TF we would like to thank Steve for his work over the last year as a co-facilitator for the A11Y TF.

Janina: and glad he'll stay around to work on the issues

Media Task Force

Paul: the MSE LC period closed on October 17
... small number of comments
... 8 outstanding bugs and 2 comments
... half of those are straight-forward
... the other half were allocated to folks
... it's possible that we get the bug count down to 0 by TPAC
... started to talk about CR exit criteria
... so CR for MSE is likely to happen in December
... on the EME front, hearbeat was published
... 15 outstanding bugs
... EME will meet next week


<paulc_> http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3333

Paul: 3 specs published: EME, Polyglot, Ruby
... Ruby deals with lots of remaining bugs of HTML5
... Ruby was published under CC-BY
