Heh, nice catch. Also: "close of business" can differ around the world

@jeff-zucker
Having the close date in the past will increase diversity by allowing time-travelers to apply.

Should we cancel? There's no major updates right now. Unless there are any talking points we can skip this month.

There is a breakout session today titled "How to work with the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force (COGA)" at https://www.w3.org/2021/10/TPAC/

How to work with the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force (COGA)
3:00 PM-4:00 PM UTC
Breakout session
Jennifer Delisi
Rain Breaw Michaels
Cover the types of cognitive and learning disabilities and differences that members of COGA (the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force) (and truthfully other members of W3C groups) may have, and how our collaboration processes across the W3C can better include the valuable perspectives of these individuals.
Goal
Enable the various groups across the W3C to engage effectively with the COGA Task Force. Identify the tooling, communication styles, and processes that can support more inclusive and successful collaboration.

Related: COGA is also mentioned in Solid Protocol's Accessibility Considerations (Web Content Accessibility): https://solidproject.org/TR/protocol#web-content-accessibility

I have created a repo for the glossary at https://github.com/solid/solidproject.org/blob/glossary/pages/glossary/glossary.md so let the group editing begin. I may have a comics illustrator on tap to do illustrations for it.
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
I've added a PRE-PROPOSAL to the notifications-panel meeting agenda (held tomorrow) to request that each Use Case that the group proposes should be reviewed by DEIT: https://github.com/solid/notifications-panel/blob/main/meetings/2021-10-28.md#use-cases-and-requirements . Just a heads-up. If group agrees and DEIT is interested as well, that'd be great. What do you all think?

An interesting inclusion example ... the Inrupt definition of IRI is "IRI
Internationalized Resource Identifier. An IRI is similar to standard web URI but allows for internationalized characters such as the umlaut Ä, or the Greek letter Δ." I am going to replace it with examples in Arabic and Chinese.
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
I won't be able to attend tomorrow, sorry. I made a comment relevant to DEIT here https://github.com/solid/solidos/issues/88#issuecomment-963513647, would appreciate your feedback.
