* Minutes from 2009-02-23 coordination call:


The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes.

* Call logistics

Starting with March, the 9th, the TC call start time will be 14:00 UTC,
that is, one hour earlier for all countries that do not switch to
daylight saving time on March, the 8th.

* Comment Mailing List

Michael asked that in alignment with the OASIS technical committee
process no discussions should take place on the public comment mailing list.

* Conformance Clauses

It has been clarified that the conformance clauses will not be proceeded
as a separate proposal, but as part of the ODF 1.2 part 1 draft. That
is, any changes to the conformance clauses will not result in a new
conformance clause proposal, but will be included in the next ODF 1.2
part 1 draft. Future drafts will be labeled Committee Draft 1 Rev 1,
Committee Draft 1 Rev 2, and so on, until the TC approves one of these
drafts as a new Committee Draft. The revisions of a committee draft do 
not have to be approved as committee drafts, and have the status of 
working drafts only unless they are approved as committee drafts.

It was agreed that all proposals for changing the text of the
conformance clauses shall include the revised text itself, and that the
TC approves or disapproves only changes to the conformance clauses that
contain the revised text.

David Faure indicated that the current conformance clauses are okay for
KOffice and that there are currently no plans for conformance clause
related proposals from the KOffice TC members.

* ODF 1.2 Draft: Next steps

It has been clarified that the TC must respond to all public comments
that are received on the comment mailing list during a public review
period. This does not apply to comments that are received outside a
public review period. A public review for the ODF 1.2 draft has not been 
requested so far.

It has been further clarified that the TC collect public comments in the
public comment registry spreadsheet and that it discusses them in
chronological order within TC calls.

Comments regarding the ODF 1.2 draft from TC members must be send to the
TC's mailing list. It was suggested that these should include a proposal
for a revised specification text, unless a TC member asks for a
clarification of some text. In that case, other TC members may reply
with a suggestion how to change the text in question. It was further
suggested that the TC editor may integrate any suggestion for text
changes without a discussion or approval by the TC, unless a TC member
raises objections to a change on the the mailing list.

It has also been clarified that so far, only part 1 was approved as a 
committee draft. It was discussed whether a public review should be 
conducted for all parts together or separately. The discussion was
