* Agenda was amended to add discussion of ODF 1.2 proposal integration 
(Michael) and approval of revised minutes for January 5th (Rob).  The 
amended agenda was approved by unanimous consent

* Minutes of the 12 January call were approved by unanimous consent

* Revised minutes of the 5 January call were approved by unanimous consent


* ODF 1.2 Proposals


Approved with understanding that it will need to be reconciled with the 
ultimate ODF 1.2 conformance clause, and language around "apparent ODF 
document" will need to be refined.

* Integration of ODF 1.2 proposals

Michael reported that he was integrating approved proposals into a new 
draft which will be "draft 8".  This draft may be adopted officially as a 
Committee Draft if the TC wishes.

There was some discussion about standalone versus integrated schemas and 
whether we needed to designate one as the normative version.  Michael said 
that the schema was part of the standard and that it was normative as well 
as the text of the standard. 

Michael also noted that we will need to reference the schema file by a 
well-known URL in the text of ODF 1.2.  This may be a URL into our file 
repository in our draft versions, but will need to be updated to point to 
the public posting area when ODF 1.2 is approved as an OASIS Standard.

* Discussion of ODF 1.2 Conformance Proposals

Michael note that OASIS has new requirements for conformance clauses which 
we will need to follow for ODF 1.2.  He has been working on two proposals 
in parallel for a main conformance clause in ODF 1.2 and wanted feedback 
from the TC his 7th iteration of the proposals, on which of the two he 
should pursue going forward.  One version has two conformance classes for 
an ODF document, normal and loose conformance (allowing foreign attributes 
and elements), while the other version had only a single document 
conformance class (not allowing foreign attributes and elements).

The TC discussed the merits of the two proposals.  An informal straw poll 
of members present (regardless of voting status) indicated a slight 
preference for the single conformance class version, though there was no 
consensus.  In particular concerns were raised about the adequacy of ODF 
1.2 metadata as a substitute for all extensibility purposes, and the 
relationship of this change to other areas of extensibility in ODF.

* Adjourned at 11:12
