Acceptance of Minutes of the January, the 6th meeting
- The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes.

Action Items
- Michael Brauer: Clarify details of Face-to-Face meeting.
   - It turned out that February the 17th is a public holiday in
     the US. For this reason the attending TC unanimously agreed to
     move the meeting to February, the 18th/19th, but to give the non
     attending TC members 24 hours to raise their concerns.
   - The meeting might take place either in Santa Clara or in Menlo
     Park, that are about 20 miles apart.
- Uche Ogbuji: Prepare examples of mixed content models that can be
   expressed best by Relax-NG schemes.
   - in progress

Establish details to create an Open Office XML format specification 
based on the OpenOffice.org XML specification
The TC agreed that the technical details regarding editing the 
specification document are clarified by the TC's editors, that is for 
instance the format of the specification or its location. The editors 
will prepare a proposal for this.

The TC also discussed whether it goes along the specification document 
or the DTD (or Relax-NG) files when working on the file format. The TC 
unanimously decided to work through the DTDs (or Relax-NG) schemes. The 
reason is that it easier to verify the completeness of the specification 
against the DTD/schema than vice versa.

To get an understanding whether a Relax-NG schema has to be created 
manually or can be created automatically and whether the TC will work 
actually through the DTD or through a Relax-NG schema, Daniel will do an 
automatic conversion of the DTDs using James' Clark's DTDInst.

To work through the DTD/Schema, it seems to be required to divide it 
into conceptual packages, like tables, lists, paragraphs etc. Daniel 
will create a proposal for such packages.

The TC identified the requirement to have a project plan. Michael Brauer 
will make a proposal for this.

New Action Items
- Daniel Vogelheim/Michael Brauer: Clarify technical details about 
editing the specification.
- Daniel Vogelheim: Convert OpenOffice.org DTD into Relax-NG schema 
using DTDInst and make result available to the TC.
- Daniel Vogelheim: Create proposal for conceptual packages in the 
- Michael Brauer: Create proposal for a project plan.
