* 10/10 voting members present, so quorum requirements have been met.

* Minutes from 2008-06-09 coordination call:

The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes.

* Action Items as listed at

Listed are only those items where an update is available.

#0030: Post definition of Excel's YEARFRAC calculation to TC list or
document library

Doug posted the definition to the list. David Wheeler noticed some
differences to Phyton code he has developed, that need to be analyzed.

* New Proposal Form


Rob created a Wiki page template for the form. It can be chosen when a
new page is created.

It was discussed where the proposals may be tracked. It was suggested to
use categories. Michael wants to do some research for this. It was
further suggested to make more use of headings.

* Discussion of proposals

- Attribute default values


The proposal was discussed. No open issues seem to exist. The proposal
may be voted on in the next call.

- proposal for ODF 1.2: extension of vertical relation values for
certain anchor types


It was discussed how the proposal effects backward compatibility. The
proposal adds a new feature to ODF. Applications that do not support ODF
1.2 will render documents differently than application that do support
the feature. Oliver wants to summarize this for the next meeting.  The 
proposal may then be voted on in the next call.

It was further discusses whether all proposals must follow the new
proposal form. The chairs clarified that the use of the new form is
recommended  but optional, because the TC so far has not agreed that the
new form is mandatory, and that an e-mail proposal may be appropriate
for "simple" proposals anyway.

The meeting was adjourned at 5pm CET
