<Ryladog_> Scribe: Katie Haritos-Shea

<Ryladog_> RS: Hopefully you have all read the Functional Reorg Doc, from about a month ago

<Ryladog_> RS: We created the TAG to support Tim in doing spec reviews that the Director is asked to do. Look at common web arch issues. TAG mission is still that, but have been driven by the needs of TAG

<Ryladog_> RS: No less challenging than Phillip and Wendy have. We make suree that Horizontal Reviews get done, we dont do them

Upcoming agenda shift in support of new A&T goals

<Ralph> W3C Internal Functional Reorganization announcement

<Ralph> 2016 W3C Internal Reorganization

<Ryladog_> JB: Recc track work will be less of a focus of this call, unless there is some major announcment

<Ryladog_> JB: Or cross review. The coordination isn the various areas especially how the architecture fits together, making sure we dont drop things

<Ryladog_> JB: Pockets of accessibility work not colliding, having these discussions. Ralph the idea is to be supporting his work and the strategy area. Ralph and I will be in ongoing discussions with endt S on that

<Ryladog_> JB: MC may also be chasing that work. Ralph, further comments?

<Ryladog_> RS: I will let you drive the conversation. Sometimes folks are surprsied to hear that TAG has taken up an a11y issue without directly contacting . Ralph will be letting the a11y folks who should come to discuss issues with the TAG

<Ryladog_> RS: The TAG hasnt had a formal reporting relationship through W3M other than Tim himself. So that will be interesting to see

<Ryladog_> Kim: We enable people using speach to use it in a better way. Co faciltator of the Mobile TF of WCAG

TPAC logistics and joint meetings all set?


<AWK> All set for WCAG

<Ryladog_> JB: TPAC logistics, last minute check,Any issues for TPAC?

<Ryladog_> JB: (provide contact info)

Any further W3C Reorg updates or questions?

<Ryladog_> JB: Last time there was a question about WAI staffing, accessibility staff will be integrated within the functional model, and I will be coordinating with them and other colleagues as needed

Any groups need cross-review by other accessibility groups?

<Ryladog_> JB: Are there updates that will come out after TPAC?

<Ryladog_> LS: MC may be on mute

<Ryladog_> MC: WE have arranged alot of cross reviews, dne see a need at this time

<Ryladog_> LS: COGA revieew will be coming out after TPAC but anyone can look at the on GitHuB

<Ryladog_> KIm: I sent something this morning

<Ryladog_> LS: I see that you did

<Ryladog_> Kim: It has to do wth customization. We used the wiki page that was set up for it

<Ryladog_> LS: Thanks TF Exchnage

WG and TF page checks all done? Can people easily find your latest work; participants; meeting schedule; lists & recent minutes?

<Ryladog_> JB: I mentioned that when we want to keep people interested I will just use the pages of reference, sometimes it is up to date or out of date.

<Ryladog_> JB: It is important to please put in serach terms to see if you can find your group before TPAC to ensure that information is findable

<Ryladog_> LS: What is the main page we should be putting the search criteria into?

<scribe> ScribeNick: Ryladog

JB: You need to hae multiple ways to find your content. At some point we talked about having a page that identifies where all of our stuff is

T: Should we remove PF stuff

JB: This is th estuff that trips people up ,and makes people confused

Community groups and workshops, recent/filled liaison needs?

JB: The workshop that I had been concerned about in Virtual Reality. One person Charles LaPierre, has already registered; anyone know of a second person as well??
... Janina or MIcheal do you have any needs for liaison in new CG that have a need?

Janina, we continue to be overdue of our regular review of CG

JB: Before we talked about getting someone to volunteer

JS: We have domne that previouly successfully. WE have been wrapped up with publication review

JB: Is that something that Katie and WAI IG somehow help on that?
... Can we croudsource CG review via WAI-IG?
... If you are looking for resources it mmight be a good idea

Janina: I need to think about whether that might be a good idea. Can we think about it?

MC: I think it would be best to cede it

JB: Lets discuss ceding it

JSL I agree with MC, we spent alot of time on it. We did not get much benefit out of it

JS: It got in the way of other things we need to do. There are many that go out, so we wated time that way. We are waiting until they have been around for 3 or 6 mnths

JB: Can I suggest that MC, KHS< and JS talk about it at TPAC
... What if you do find a group that does need a liaison? We want to have an a11y person that is in coordiation with the WAI
... Some previw of the work so that it is accessibility ready that might effect wht kind of a message you would want to send to the Accessibility IG

JS: I am certainly happy to have that converstaion. It is just that it is a time killer. Best if we do it less often

JB: OK , please figure something out

KHS: We will find a way to talk about that at TPAC

[for now] Upcoming publications, announcements, discussion threads to promote, including on WAI IG? Or issues to bring back into groups?

JB: Are there things going on that you think you would like to share with the community?
... Things

<tzviya> https://www.w3.org/blog/2016/09/portable-web-publications-use-cases-and-requirements-fpwd/

T: D-PUB published the FPWD of Portable Web Publications Use Cases and Requirements



KHS: EO asked us to ask WAI-IG folks to join them on Mondayy afternoon

JB: Where is the best place to put stuff for informal communications for TPAC?

RS: I am not aware of anything
... The most formal I can recall is the BOF proposals

<liam> +1 also called "unconference sessions"

JB: Do people have any BOF ideas?

<MichaelC> https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2016/SessionIdeas

JB: Maybe something we could put in place notices to the TPAC attendees

RS: Yes there are TPAC hastags

Any other business?

SA: We contact WCAG WG Chairs in europe there is actvieit EN 301549.

SA: It is intended to fix issues related to realtime-text and align with US Section 508, but also to improve coverage on mobile - it is important to ensure continued harmonization with WCAG 2.0/2.1 in this effort

Next meeting: next date, topic requests

JB: The next meeting would be the 28th

<janina> APA is taking the post TPAC week off. Probably regrets for me

<Judy> Regrets for 28th?

JB: If you have regrets for the 28th, please type that in. We may need a survey?

<AWK> 28th is ok, but I'll be late due to my recurring conflict

28 is OK for me

JB: We can move to a monthly meeting, but I would like to keep it at every two weeks if we can
... The transition will take a little while and then see
