Resource Development Life Cycle

From Education & Outreach
Jump to: navigation, search

EOWG follows a specific Resource Development Life Cycle to create and maintain our deliverables, which are called “resources”. This process is meant to ensure that resources are created and updated in a robust, consistent manner, with adequate working group review. EO's current resources can be found at https://w3c.github.io/wai-resources/

EOWG documents go through the following stages:

  1. Requirements
  2. Planning
  3. Concept
  4. Draft
  5. Publication
  6. Maintenance


Each stage's key tasks, deliverables, and milestones are outlined in the table below. The first row contains each of the six RDLC stages. Find tasks, deliverables, and EO Decision to be made in the rows below that. Click on links for more info and sample deliverables.
