16:11:56 [Mike_Pluke]
John's distractions section he has gone through the checklist waiting for second pull request
16:13:20 [ddahl]
original emotionML description
16:13:21 [Mike_Pluke]
Debbie - Emotional markup - not written an issue paper (but should close original action)
16:15:30 [Rich]
16:15:30 [Mike_Pluke]
Rich - Links and Buttons - done link to follow
16:16:51 [Mike_Pluke]
Not just links and buttons (despite name)
16:17:34 [Mike_Pluke]
The potential features in section 11 is floating - but not removed because someone originally added it
16:18:32 [Mike_Pluke]
Rich suggesting that other documents should follow the proposal format that he has adopted
16:19:08 [Mike_Pluke]
Maybe the linksa nd buttons and "Easy personalisation" sections should be separated out as they are different
16:20:33 [Mike_Pluke]
Not everything has followed the original proposed "Issue Paper" template
16:21:23 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:22:59 [Mike_Pluke]
Personalization issue papers are, together, a mess - may ask Ayelet to rationalse these
16:24:03 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:26:14 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa, Ayelet and Mike to work togather to try to produce a coherent personalization section
16:27:11 [Mike_Pluke]
May Jo - Flat Design - paper "lacks a lot of meat" and is missing sections that are included in other papers
16:28:26 [Mike_Pluke]
Correction - Mary Jo not May Jo!
16:28:37 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:29:24 [Mike_Pluke]
The "voie menu" issue paper is a template that can be used to help improve flat design
16:29:39 [JF]
s/May Jo/Mary Jo
16:29:52 [Mike_Pluke]
Janina not finished with Web of Things paper - needs another week.
16:30:38 [Mike_Pluke]
Modality issue paper - think John Rochford has completed (not on call)
16:31:10 [Mike_Pluke]
Thaddeus has already accepted the "numbers" paper
16:31:44 [Mike_Pluke]
Providing graded help - Thaddeus has volunteered
16:33:45 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael has agreed to check the "numbers" paper and come back to Lisa
16:34:29 [Mike_Pluke]
Volunteer needed for Metadata - come back to this later
16:35:11 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:35:47 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa has asked people to look at "Proposal for WCAG" (above)
16:38:27 [Mike_Pluke]
Readers need to undertand what is meant by "testable" - not machine testable but will be the case for most people
16:39:00 [Mike_Pluke]
Plenty of exceptions are added in several requirements
16:41:45 [Mike_Pluke]
Trys to avoid reference t ocurrent "hot" issues like "flat design" requirements given in more generally applicable terms
16:43:15 [Mike_Pluke]
John Foliot querying how the COGA work will be handled - rolled into WCAG 2.1 or an extension (John used the term "profile")
16:44:40 [Mike_Pluke]
John's use of "profile" refers to WCAG 2.0 + COGA extension (for example)
16:46:56 [Mike_Pluke]
The extension model has the disadvantage that it appears discriminatory - i.e. it is acceptable to not include people with certain impairments
16:49:05 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:51:23 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael: This discussion is best held in the WCAG group and not the Task Force (with representatives of the COGA TF present).
16:51:31 [JF]
16:52:50 [Mike_Pluke]
John Posted the above link as it discussed the issues being discussed.
16:54:15 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael proposing how to move the material forward from the wiki to a Github draft.
16:56:07 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael expressed concern that WCAG will say that the material is too detailed and not suitable as WCAG Success Criteria.
16:56:22 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa suggesting that techniques can be separated out.
16:57:56 [KurtM]
Kurt dropping
17:00:17 [ddahl]
ddahl has left #coga
17:00:42 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael: Perhaps one solution may be to move some of the bullet points as part of definitions, thereby tightening the success criteria
17:01:23 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael: The problem is likely to be that WCAG will focus on the non-standard way of writing success criteria and not on the substance
17:03:52 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa suggests asking the chairs to give the document a pre-review before deciding to submit the document for a full review
17:04:53 [Mike_Pluke]
John has volunteered to give a quick review
