TC con call start time
In US, Canada and Europe daylight saving times end at October the 26th. 
The TC agreed to move the con call's GMT start time to 4pm (and to leave 
the local times in US, Canada and Europe unchanged) for the meeting on 
October, the 27th. It further agreed to discuss on the TC's mailing list 
whether all con calls should start at that time, or whether the TC 
returns to a 4pm/7pm GMT biweekly schedule.

Discussion of Work Package 5.3 Style Properties
The TC continued the discussion of fixed (or "DTP") page layouts based 
on David's proposal. It discussed whether a new "DTP" document type for 
fixed page layout is an option and whether the master page specification 
could be enhanced to support a certain page sequence without requiring a 
new document type or a "DTP" flag that changes the behavior of empty 
paragraphs. A page sequence based solution was considered to be most 
reasonable. Daniel Vogelheim will create a proposal for this.

With the exception of the "DTP" page layout issue, the TC agreed to keep 
to page specifications unchanged.

Discussion of Work Package 5.4 Special Styles
The TC continued the discussion of footnote and endnote configurations. 
The TC agreed to clarify in the specification that presentation notes 
have to support text only. The TC also agreed to the proposal for a 
merged foot-/endnote configuration and to keep the rest of the 
foot-/endnote configuration unchanged.

The discussion of bibliography configurations has been moved to the next 
con call. Daniel Vogelheim will collect further details about the 

The TC continued the discussion of list and outline styles. The TC 
agreed to the proposal to add a "style:default-outline-level" attribute 
to paragraph styles (see 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200310/msg00018.html) and 
agreed to rename the <text:h> element's "text:level" attribute to 

The TC continued the discussion of multiple outline styles that are used 
simultaneously in a document. A use case for this is for instance an 
appendix that uses a different numbering than the main document. It has 
been discussed whether this could be achieved with the current schema by 
adding the possibility to specify a regular numbering style in a 
heading's paragraph style. Michael Brauer will further investigate this.

New Action Items
- Daniel Vogelheim: Proposal for page sequences
- Daniel Vogelheim: Collect information regarding bibliography
- Michael Brauer: Investigate whether regular numberings can be
    applied to headings.
