            - Approved by acclamation

        - DTDArchVersion value

            - Proposal: We will use 1.0.0 for the first deliverable.

    4. Specification status
        - Spec
            - Main things holding us up --
                - Namespace
                - Identifiers
            - Michael is requesting that everyone review this week
              by Friday, so he can provide a 1.0.0 spec draft to
              vote on next Tuesday.  Provide comments in plain text
                - Don -- we have some outstanding issues, that
                  cannot be resolved till we meet next week.
                - So, next week we will look at DTDs and namespace
                  issues.  Michael will provide a final 1.0 draft to
                  the TC.  We will then approve/disapprove the 1.0
                  draft at the subsequent meeting.

        - DTDs/Schemas
            - How to validate the DTDs?
                - There are several tools for doing this
                - Don and Eric will work on this.

        - Language Ref
            - Let's finish this topic on the List -- we will not be
              able to make a decision now.

        modules (if necessary) for Michael.

    071 Otherprops: The section on conditional processing does not
        give best practices for using this att. Specific additional
        syntax. As C. Wong raised on the list: we don't have a std
        to extend attribute. But we don't have specific syntax if we
        add more then 1 attribute in there. Need for 1.0 or later?
        Put this on the list for discussion.

** Issues to be Resolved ** 
    006 All -- Should DITA specialization mechanism be documented in
        a separate specification in order to make it easier to use
        in other XML applications that otherwise have no
        relationship to topic-based writing?  >>> Ongoing.  >>>
        11/30/04: - add to spec issues list

        for future discussion.

        architectures (such as S1000D) -- Need to incorporate this
        into the "Best Practices" document.

        graphics, ie raster vs vector assumptions, etc.).
        Compare/contrast with controls for the <object> element,
