<lisa_phone> Keeping the

wcag process with Rachael

Rachael: Review of the Proposed Process from Chair Working Document

Rachael: Many forms of communications; we can lose threads, moderation tends to happen in meetings. Most of W3C works directly in github.... and we should try this (github centered process)

<julierawe> Rachael, when is the normal AG meeting time (for the training sessions on Aug 8 and 15)?

Rachael: Coming weeks are training oriented.... Aug 8th/15th (normal AG time). Coming to at least one would be useful. Aug 22nd is the kick off.

Rachael: The meeting is 11-1 EST

Rachel: Please reach out to me as needed for any questions.

Rachael: We will continue to send emails about meetings, but there will be a central meeting page with the relevant information (on meetings).

Rachael: (in future), users can review the members activities. Review and preview via docs with occasional thumbs up and down via github.

Rachael: Telecoms will focus on future conversations, more than active discussion and decision making.

Rachael: There will be a link for upcoming topics (for review), short and medium term document review and creation.

Rachael: Format will be Summary, Maturity, Action Needed and Questions

Rachael and Julie discussed how pull requests would work, workflows, review owners, etc.
