The Simultaneous Release Requirements have an Accessibilty Requirement to report Accessibility Compliance by using "... a publically available checklist ...". While for Helios Release required documentation, we will provide one, "rolled up" checklist for all of WTP, the PMC would like to ask each sub-project to do their own evaluations and tests and provide their own checklist report, specific to their sub-project. For consistency, we recommend the sub-projects use these:
Additionally, where tools can be used to test compliance, we recommend JAWS be used. (This is not free, open source software, so we can not require it, but we know a number of committers do in fact have versions or licenses to use it, so, when possible, for consistency, would be good to use it.) There are other tools available, as mentioned in The Simultaneous Release Requirements. Also, be sure to read the updated Eclipse Corner Article, Designing Accessible Plug-ins in Eclipse for how to program for accessibility to begin with.
Pending (I'll writeup statement for PMC review, first).
Pending. I'm working on FAQ (for PMC review, first).
There is a need, and interest!, to discuss high level, big picture aspects of the WTP project. Some possible items are listed below. Remember, to actually do anything, will require someone to volunteer to do the work.
Notes from meeting: This was only "new years resolution" discussed. We mentioned 4 points:
We'll have next agenda too.
Back to meeting list.
