Topics for this period

Survey on document technologies

Lofton Henderson and Dominique Hazaël-Massieux have prepared together a questionnaire which has been sent to editors of W3C specifications. The survey is a first step in determining what, if anything, we might be able to provide in terms of common tools and techniques to help authors. Depending on the outcome, QAWG may put resources into prototype(s).

Show and Tell in Tokyo

The next QA F2F meeting is approaching. We remind to people that it's a joint meeting WG and IG and that it is open to the participation of every people. The location and the agenda of the meeting will give you details if you wish to attend.

The Show and Tell part will help you to understand technologies and methodologies related to EARL and Test Suites. It's a unique oppotunity for you to learn a bit more about quality work applied to W3C technologies.

Specification Guidelines : a good specification?

To promote the Specification Guidelines, it has been decided by the QA Working Group to apply to the specifications we are writing to apply the QA Specification Guidelines itself. It will help to illustrate the quality of the specification and raises hidden issues.

See Thread :

Testability Definition

The language being the vehicle of our ideas, it is very important to be as exact as possible for the definitions we use in the specifications we are writing. The discussion is trying to define the testability of a specification and to not, by definition, classify some specifications out of scope by their nature.
