- done

Lars: clarify open database issues with developers
- done, see below

Planning for September (and October):
There will be no call on September 5th (labor day)
(There will be no call on October 3rd (german national holliday))

Legal XML
Michael has received a 70-pages requirements document.

Database Proposal
Password: this is to be removed from the schema. Storing passwords for a 
backend in a document which represents the frontend makes no sense.

Classpath: This is a classpath that tells the application how to find a 
JDBC driver. It has no implied relationship to any other aspects of a 
java system that might be used in the application. Wording in the spec 
should reflect this.
Action: Lars to propose a wording for this.

Datatypes: Lars discussed the datatype issue concerning SQL/internal 
datatyes with the development team of the OpenOffice.org database 
application. Defining driver specific refinements for datatypes does not 
help to solve any problems in datatype selction. A user would still have 
to select new refinements when he tries to migrate from one driver to 
another. The proposal is thus left as is in this respect.

Meta Data
After finishing with the database proposal, extensions to OpenDocuments 
meta data mechanism will be the next topic for the TC. Everybody should 
post their thought/ideas or requirements for this to the list, in order 
for the TC to get Material for a discussion.

New Action Items
Action: Lars to propose a wording for classpath attribute in database 
All: post thoughts on meta-data

Next conference call
2005-09-12 3PM GMT – 4:00PM GMT
