Bug Triage

From HTML accessibility task force Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Bug Triage sub-team reviews bugs filed against the HTML5.x specifications, to determine their relevance to the HTML Accessibility Task Force. Major activities include:

  • Reviewing new bugs to determine whether the TF should take ownership of them.
  • Monitoring bugs under TF ownership to make sure they are actively pursued.
  • Liaising with the TF to make sure resolved bugs have been dealt with satisfactorily, and that solutions for fixed bugs are implemented.



The Bug Triage team meets monthly via teleconference, on Wednesdays at 1pm Boston (EST/EDT) for 60 minutes.

We use the Zakim teleconference system and Internet Relay Chat (IRC) to hold the Bug Triage meetings. Use the following details to join:
