Subject: Agenda for today

Hi all,

I have not received an agenda from JoAnn, so here's one based on last week's

Toll Number: USA +1-210-280-1707 
Toll-Free Number: USA 866-566-4838 
Participant Passcode: 185771

1.  Roll call



2.  Accepted the minutes of the previous meeting.
    Moved by SSS, seconded by SSS, no objections.

3. Review open action items:

    ACTION -- Andrzej to send terminology definitions to Gershon. Gershon to

    add them to the document and ensure all text uses only these terms.

    ACTION -- Don to inform us where to publish our best practices.

    Action Item: Andrjez will provide examples to the group for discussion.

4.  Returning Business:

4.1 Discuss Gershon Joseph's draft of the best practice for legacy TM

4.2 Management of conref blocks for translations

    Standardized (boilerplate) text is often kept in one or more .dita files

    used as a source for conrefs across a document set. 

    All boilerplate content for a language must be stand-alone.
        Boilerplate text must be stand-alone phrases to avoid problems
        it into some languages, where it does not fit into the surrounding

    Depending on the conref target, the conref target should be
        translated before the parent document that refers to the conref 
        is translated. 

    Conreffing to an inline element may result 
        in a badly translated phrase with respect to its surrounding
        so we should probably be against this. Examples: singular/plural,
        prepositions, acronyms e.g. ABS (antilock breaking system) so if 
        you conref to the text itself, the translated text may not read 

4.3 XLIFF transforms

    Discuss plans for Rodolfo's tests of their XLIFF transforms and possible

    release to open source. Ask if there is a proposed date.

    Andrzej and Rodolfo have successfully converted DITA to XLIFF and back.
    Rodolfo plans to publish their converter as open source.

5.  New Business:

5.1 Handling multi-language documents

    Charles Pau and others to provide examples to the list for discussion
