Joining EOWG

    • If you are associated with a W3C member organization, contact your Advisory Council representative and ask to be assigned to EOWG.
    • If you are not associated with a W3C member organization, you can still contribute to EOWG work and may become eligible to be an Invited Expert. More information about how to participate if not member associated is on the EOWG pages of the website.

Notes on existing docs

Technical Document Review


  • EOWG review of technical documents should focus on understandability, approachability, and ease-of-use. Look at the introduction, abstract, background, use cases, and other such sections. You can usually skip the technical sections.
  • Make sure the Overview page is linked early in the Introduction and in the Abstract, as appropriate.
  • Have a pretty high "filter" — that is, we usually will comment only on significant issues and not bother with minor things.
  • Remember these are technical specifications/standards and have a different audience, format, and purpose that EO docs.
  • (If you have comments on technical aspects beyond the education & outreach perspective, please submit them yourself.)
  • Please write your comments as we would submit them as formal EOWG comments to the public-comments list.
    • Clearly indicate where in the document your comment applies. Provide a link to where it is in the document.
    • Briefly describe the issue.
    • Provide suggestion for revision. (EOWG can help refine this, but please provide a draft.)
    • See EOWG - Comment effectiveness e-mail
    • (Optionally, you can include additional notes for EOWG consideration or discussion.)
