Subject: Re: [office] Request for TC approval of our ODF AccessibilityGuidelines document as a "Committee Draft"

Dear TC members,

SC members: Thank you very much for the new draft.

I have set the ballot on the agenda of TC meeting on Monday. Rich 
Schwerdtfeger will join us for the topic. Since he is available only in 
the 2nd half of the call, I will call the topic when, although I have 
listed it as the first item.

Best regards
