<jongund> WCAG 2.0 Ruleset

<jakubiak> JG: Broke rules into different categories

<jakubiak> JG: Some rule groups empty since still adding rules to some of them. Working on getting the aria rules incorporated into WCAG 2.0 ruleset

<jakubiak> RS: This is what was thinking of regarding breaking rules into groups

<jakubiak> JG: Added grouping id into ruleset, so can disable group of rules

<jakubiak> RS: Wondering whether form control rules should be widget rules. Since today users use form controls throughout the page not just in forms context

<jakubiak> JG: What's in there now are rules tied to the older HTML 4 rules

<jakubiak> RS: In HTML 5 lots of new elements. Since all elements are interactive UI elements, might be ugly to split out "forms" elements

<jakubiak> JG: Okay we can merge form control and widget rules

<jakubiak> JG: Media Rules should be Audio and Video rules

<jakubiak> JG: Have checked rulesets with AInspector, Monday can review naming, if everything ok I will check these into the repository

<jakubiak> JG: I have been working on updating wiki page on rule formatting information, Monday we can discuss. One of deliverables is format for rules

<vonut> I have to drop (back to back meetings)

<jakubiak> JG: We shoot for Jan 10 to vote on rule format

<jakubiak> RS: Need to send email invitation, then can vote on a call

<annabbott> Ann has to drop for next call

<jakubiak> JG: Sounds like Jan 10 would be good day to have a draft message to go out for voting

<jakubiak> RS: Microsoft probably more interested in HTML5, might take a while for them to get their feet wet here

<jakubiak> JG: Next meeting Monday
