Agenda Review & Announcements

matatk: Don't believe we have announcements?

TPAC 2023 planning - https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC/2023

matatk: Stalled a bit; still waiting from TAG and several groups on timing

matatk: Difficulty with conflicting conference for some groups we're meeting with

matatk: We're following up as best we can

matatk: Still need to ask from ARIA?

matatk: WebAppSec we should also ask (re Adapt)

matatk: Was some question from Pronunciation on another ARIA mtg; but we need a good reason for another mtg, because we're not going their direction

PaulG: my attraction was reusable tokens; but more development would be needed to meed our reqs

PaulG: I think we get the basic finalized then return for elaboration in a 1.x

PaulG: would love to hear from the majors still

matatk: Believe the direction Pronunciation is going in seems right

matatk: Just don't want to have to repeat a dev cycle if the majors have issues

PaulG: We're still stuck on "html should b authorable by hand"

[discussion of some of the conundra]

matatk: Anything we can do during TPAC, we should be ready

PaulG: May be helpful to game-out ssml vs json with whatwg at TPAC

PaulG: what will happen if ...

matatk: Notes comment from Lionel -- link above

matatk: Is FPWD, so we can park

We have 3 VC specs to review (explicitly requested):




Verifiable Credential Data Integrity (and vc-di-eddsa and vc-di-ecdsa) 2023-05-27 -> 2023-07-31 #61


matatk: expect no a11y, though privacy; suggest we approve

PaulG: as long as mechanisa are transparent, cert window needs to be readable

matatk: good point; ua considerations arising from this; none in the doc; may be out of scope for this doc

matatk: Notes two subordinate specs

matatk: So we sign off on 61

Verifiable Credentials JSON Schema Specification 2023-06-13 #64


matatk: might be user related needed? so we might expect to see in schema

matatk: This is a thin wrapper on the main spec

matatk: Does have A11y Considerations

matatk: Tells implementrs to be mindful -- nice!

matatk: link to VC Data spec also has Considerations

matatk: We signoff on 64 with our thanks for a11y considerations

Verifiable Credentials Data Model v2.0 2021-06-15 #65


matatk: Compliment of 64; we're fine

matatk: We sign off here as well

Task Force & Deliverables Updates


janina: COGA has been reviewing CTAUR, for which RQTF is very grateful. I asked Lisa to provide a pointer to COGA's in-process review.


janina: There's progress, but there's also some things missing. Process: they're not using Google Docs comments, to it's not clear when the comment ends.

janina: We found a lot of good, actionable feedback. There were also some things that were out-of-scope for CTAUR. Also we've not had any feedback about GitHub (we are specifically interetsed in that, as W3C uses it).

janina: There are non-web UIs to GitHub (e.g. gh CLI)

janina: We envisage a scenario in which everyone has a tool _they_ can use to interface with a common environment. Would be good to know what COGA finds with the other tools, so people can find something that works for them.
