Schema Languages
Daniel asked on the Relax-NG mailing list for Relax-NG to DTD conversion 
tools that are able to convert the Open Office schema. The suggestions 
that have been replied most frequently were to ask the tool authors for 
bug fixes or to preprocess the schema by an XSLT stylesheet, so that a 
tool based conversion becomes possible.

Specification document
The specification document is in progress. The most recent version can 
be found at http://xml.openoffice.org/oasis/

The TC discussed how to proceed with suggestions and proposals regarding 
the schema (rather than the specification document) itself that come up 
while reviewing the specification. The TC thinks that they should be 
addressed if and only if this can be done with short discussions. To 
minimize the impact of such proposals on the editing work, they should 
be based on the edited specification rather than on the original 
OpenOffice.org specification.

The TC further agreed that the edited specification should make a 
differentiation between TODOs for the editors and TODOs for the TC 
itself, and that the subject of mails that contain feedback to the 
specification should start with "SPEC:". TC editors should provide a 
proposal for TC TODOs.

The TC discussed whether list items can contain sections and headings as 
described as TODO on page 33 of
The TC agreed that headers are allowed within list items, but 
text-sections are not.
