Subject: OpenDocument TC coordination call draft minutes 2008-03-31

OpenDocument TC coordination call draft minutes 2008-03-31

* Called to order at 10:03 EDT

* Rollcall

Rob Weir, IBM (Presiding)

Helen Yue, IBM
Mingfei Jia, IBM
Warren Turkal, Google
Oliver-Rainer Wittmann, Sun Microsystems

Eike Rathke, Sun Micrososystems
Florian Reuter, Novell

Bob Jolliffe, South Africa Dept. of Science & Technology
David Wheeler, Institute for Defense Analyses

8 of 11 voting members being present, a quorum was achieved.

* Rob reviewed the OASIS TC voting rules, in particular how meeting attendance determines who can vote.  Details can be found in section 2.4 here (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.php#membership).  

Warren will receive initial voting rights when this meeting adjourns.

* The TC had a brief discussion on how decisions are made, what things require a vote, which things are determined by consensus or by lack of objection.  Patrick recommended that the meeting minutes clearly indicate how decisions were determined.

* No meeting minutes were approved.  We're awaiting meeting minutes from the March 17th call, which Michael will write up.

* The TC discussed the status of the draft corrigenda that Patrick is producing in response to the J/SC34 defect report.  Patrick wil recast the draft into a more concise form, as editing instructions for the TC to review and approve.  Patrick will discuss this with Murata-san in Oslo, at the SC34 Plenary to see if that is satisfactory.

* Rob has the action item to review our errata plan with OASIS staff, since the ISO and OASIS processes are not perfectly aligned.  We might be able to propose a change to the OASIS process.

* Discussion of presentation play modes.  "Play" versus "Edit".  This appears to be a more general concern than just presentations.  David raised the example of the XO laptop, and how a read-only, "Play" mode of a text document might be appropriate as well.  Bob suggested there might be a wider set of actions than just "Play" and "Edit"

After much discussion, it appears the (non mutually exclusive) options are:

1) A narrowly targeted setting in presentation for the Play mode, true/false.
1a) Same as 1) but do it for all application types
2) A fixed set of modes across all application types, but wider than just Play and Edit.
3) Push the setting out to manifest file rather than in the document markup

These should be discussed more on the mailing list.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:59 EDT
