Specification document
The TC editors marked all TODOs in the specification document as either 
TODOs for the TC or TODOs for the editors.

The TC editors also introduced "Notes to the TC" to the specification 
document. A "Note to the TC" is a TODO for the TC where the editors 
already suggest a solution, so that a discussion is only required if a 
TC member disagrees to the suggested solution. The suggested solutions 
have been integrated in the spec already. The TC unanimously agreed to 
the concept of "Notes to the TC".

The TC discussed the proposal to join date and time text fields (see 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200401/msg00014.html), that 
both operate on a date+time value and therefor differ only by their name 
in the schema. Since there is a differentiation between date and time 
fields in the UI of office applications, the TC agreed to keep the 
schema unchanged, that is to keep this differentiation in the schema.

Phase 2 topics
Gary Edwards suggested a file format for contact manager applications as 
additional phase 2 topic.

Liaison with DCMI
The Open Office TC has been asked by the Dublin Core Meta Initiative 
whether it is interested in a liaison relationship with the DCMI. The TC 
in general is interested in working together with the DCMI, but needs 
some more details what the liaison relationship could look like to 
decide on a formal liaison relationship. Michael will get in contact 
with DCMI to get more information.

New Action Items
Michael Brauer: Get in contact with DCMI regarding a liaison relationship.
