- in progress

switch to the ISO variant if required.

spreadsheet functions.
- in progress

* Response to SC34's defect report N0942
Patrick has uploaded a draft response. Rob is following-up with 
OASIS/SC34 regarding the TC's errata plans.

* Discussion of public comments as listed in

#7: A paragraph that describes the style inheritance model of ODF may be 
added to the ODF 1.2 specification. It was discussed whether this should 
be added to an ODF 1.1 errata, too. The discussion was postponed until 
the text to be added has been written. Michael accepted an action item 
to draft that text.

#9: This proposal seems to be covered by the new meta data proposal. Rob 
accepted an action item to write a response.

#10: It was discussed whether the use of a specific formula namespace 
prefix should be recommended because the prefix is used in an attribute 
value rather than an attribute name. Michael accepted an action item to 
post some examples where namespace prefixes are used that way. The 
discussion was adjourned.

The discussion of public comments was adjourned at this stage.

* Proposals
- The discussion of the "auto-play" feature for presentations continued
- There was a general discussion regarding the inclusion of new 
proposals into the ODF 1.2 specification.
