Consistent with W3C Process requirements on Task Forces, the WCAG WG may form task forces composed of WCAG WG participants or join other W3C task forces to carry out assignments when under the chartered scope of WCAG WG. Any such task force must have a work statement (including objectives, communication, participation, and leadership) that has been announced on the WCAG WG mailing list, approved by the WCAG WG, and is available from the WCAG WG home page. WCAG WG task forces should produce requirements documents that outline the scope and expectations for work. Task forces may set up separate teleconferences and hold face-to-face meetings per the W3C process and with the approval of the WCAG WG.

The WCAG WG's scope of work includes:

  • Maintaining errata for WCAG 2.0;
  • Maintaining Understanding WCAG 2.0 for editorial issues and additional clarifications;
  • Publishing an updated WCAG 2.x edition, if needed for correction only, and not for a major change;
