       Follow up from February's meeting:  Larry volunteered to generate
       some sample cases to show where XInclude would be useful.
  d:  Dick: For Github issue 71, investigate to see how we might add a license
       link to legalnotice using class, info, or other existing markup.
  e:  Larry: Come up with a list of alternatives to the proposed buildtarget element using current elements.
  e:  Bob: Talk with Norm to clarify Github issue 72 and determine which
       sites need https and which already have it.
       See item 7 below.

  f: TBD: Update docbook.org to include official 5.1 and point to OASIS for official releases on docbook.org.
      See item 7 below.
  g: Bob: Update the OASIS front page for 5.1.

6. Thank Jirka for his service on the TC and discuss his future work on DocBook.

7. Add buildtarget element (continue discussion on Github issue 6). Notes from last month:
        Suggestions include:
           - Use existing tag, systemitem, or function elements.
           - Use a broader element, e.g., target
           - Create a new buildtarget element
           - Another element name that allows for branching.
           - Are we trying to explain a build language?
           Concern about whether we lose clarity if we go broader.
        Larry volunteered to come up with a list of alternatives to discuss this month.

8.  HTTPS for docbook.org: Norm suggested that we should use https for docbook.org, at least for downloads.
     Discuss whether we should do this and, if so, how we should do this. Connected with this, we should
     discuss ongoing maintenance for docbook.org.
