Acceptance of Minutes from Last Call
- The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes.

Action Items
Michael: create errata document
- ongoing

Lars: redo wording for 'classpath' description in database proposal
- done by Michael

All: post thoughts on metadata
- done

The TC unanimously accepted the database proposal to be included into 
the next draft of the OpenDocuemnt specification

Discussion on the concept of using IDREF in order to reference custom 
metadata from OpenDocument metadata

(Florian:) From the way known parsers handle IDREF, it's use wouldn't be 
backwards compatible. Furthermore, XSD and RelaxNG are supporting ID's 
only on a 'type-level', so the concepts used in a DTD aware parser 
wouldn't hold there.

In order to interoperate with the RDF world, it might thus be the best 
route, to just define a mapping from OpenDocument meta-data to an RDF 
graph. That graph could be extended, by includoging futher RDF 
statements (in RDF ML syntax) in the meta.xml stream.

(Duane:) This would be quite in line with what's being done in other 
sematic web initiatives (e.g. ISO JTC 1 / SC 32's metadata WG)

(Lars:) sould a mapping just translate the statements that OpenDocument 
metadata is making into RDF, or should it be possible, to not only add 
RDF to those statements, but also be possible, to make further 
statements about objects from the OpenDocument meta data? (post examples)

Discussion on metadata to continue next week...

(Michael:) should we create a public mailing-list for users of 
OpenDocument? (check with OASIS)

New Action Items
Michael: check OASIS mailing list possibilities for a public 
OpenDocument list

Next conference call
