Hash: SHA1

| DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 17 Dec 2002
| ========================================================
| The DocBook Technical Committee will met on Tuesday, 17 December 2002
| at 01:00p EST (10:00a PST, 18:00GMT, 19:00CET, 03:00JST+) 
| for 90 minutes.
| Agenda
| 1. Roll call

  Steve Cogorno
  Dennis Evans
  Paul Grosso
  Nancy Harrison
  Scott Hudson
  Bob Stayton
  Norman Walsh


  Dick Hamilton


  Sabine Ocker
  Michael Smith

| 2. Accepting the minutes[1] of the previous meeting


| 3. Review of the agenda


| 4. Review of open action items {5 min}
|    a. Norm to follow-up on RFE 562343: <packagename> element


|    b. Norm to post more detail about the PE reorganization with some documentation

Abandoned in favor of Trang.

ACTION: Norm to review using Trang to generate DTDs and W3C XML Schemas

|    c. Norm to write better documentation for option/optional


|    d. Bob to discuss instance-based xref text with Paul


|    e. Mike to consider possible attribute values on literallayout for
|       addressing RFE 613293 (generalize programlisting)

Continued until he's present.

| 5. Procedure/Task/Topic

Proposal: We will add StepAlternatives to Step. A Step will contain either
a single StepAlternatives or a single Substeps (or neither). The content model
of StepAlternatives is Step+.

StepAlternatives will have common attributes plus "performance" as per
Substeps and Step.


Steve summarized RFE #621564.

ACTION: Norm to make sure discussion of Task/Topic is on the agenda next month

| 6. Instance-based cross-reference text

We add a style attribute. Its use would be stylesheet dependent. One
kind of use is 'named styles' which the stylesheet can apply. Another
kind is a select process where individual components of the style
attribute are pulled together appropriately.

SC: XFormat or XRefFormat?

We already have 'format' which is a notation for graphic formats.

NH: In that case I would prefer style.

Proposal: We will add an 'xrefstyle' attribute to xref, olink, link, and ulink.
It's CDATA and its values are processor-defined.


| 7. CALS+HTML Table Model

ACTION: Paul to summarize the differences between the two models,
highlighting where there are potential ambiguities (places where there
are two or more choices and at least one of them is wrong).

ACTION: Norm to put this on the agenda again next month

| 8. Simplified ToCs

ACTION: Norm to post to the list again

ACTION: Norm to check on the FU status of this change.
