Web Animations Level 2

<Roy> - tracker: https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/Web_Animations_Level_2

<Roy> - spec: https://www.w3.org/TR/web-animations-2/

PaulG: This is fairly low level
… Animations stil an issue for accessibility, but should be covered by WCAG.
… No mention of accessibility in this document specifically.
… If we consider WCAG covers everything web, and they're just adding APIs to control something web related, do they need to explicitly reference WCAG?
… This is about providing more options for devs to do existing things.

matatk: sometimes there's a parent doc to look at. But there's already privacy and security considerations in here.

PaulG: ACK there are other non-functional requirements. Maybe we could provide some boilerplate text for them to include (around things like WCAG applying)?

janina: +1

PaulG: Should we give them the WAI Standards/guidelines link?
… Won't need updating on each iteration of the document.

can we use this for a "pointer" to applicable specs? https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/

matatk: the immediate action is that we don't need to review this but we do need to come up with a suggested text for accessibility considerations

Explicit Review Requests - https://github.com/w3c/a11y-request/issues

<janina> https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2023Jan/0000.html

janina: this is worth a read and covers parts of matter and thread

matatk: this is long but we should forward it to them and clearly state what we expect as an outcome

janina: should this be elevated to an APA concern and not just comments from an individual?

matatk: we can't cfc this email as is but we probably can with some small edits

Fredrik: should we just ask Gottfried again?

matatk: yes! Janina and I will do that!

CSS Update (Paul) - https://github.com/w3c/css-a11y/issues

PaulG: There are ongoing conversations about color-contrast() (not resolved)
… Propose we come up with the non-functional requirement statement (discussed above) in the next week or so.

Actions Checkin (Specs) - https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/track/actions/open

matatk: the tracker will be retired by the end of next month

matatk: let us know if you have issues about github being its replacement

matatk: I still haven't seen anything in WCAG 2.2 that concerns me so I think we can sign off on it

Fredrik: +1
