<Brian> Amelia and I are on the call right now. We can see you in there, but can't hear you

<fesch> we don't have a big agenda

<fesch> can Rich chair?

<fesch> https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-svg-a11y/2016Jul/0000.html

<fesch> yes,

<fesch> I will try that

Publishing specs

Amelia: We have a resolution from SVG WG: https://www.w3.org/2016/06/30-svg-minutes.html#resolution01

Fred: Rich, can you add this to the ARIA agenda this week?

Updates on SVG 2

Amelia: We are trying get SVG 2 to CR, ASAP.
... One important change I'm currently working on is making <use> element compatible with Shadow DOM.
... This may result in allowing interactive content inside the shadow DOM (consistent with web components), which would mean the shadow DOM would need to be fully accessible.
... This is a change from what's currently in SVG-AAM, but it shouldn't block publication of the new WD, because we do have a very detailed issue description related to this question that is currently in the spec.

Fred: Would this change the name & description calculation?

Amelia: It would for <use> element. Instead of having special rule to get name from the re-used element, the cloned element would actually be child content.

Telcon Time

Doug: My schedule has changed: going forward, I will only be available on Mondays or Tuesdays
... I know we did this not too long ago, but I'll have to set up another poll to find a new time.

Fred: We've had some other people who haven't been able to often make this time slot, so that is maybe just as well. Can you set up the poll, Doug?
