We're working on three projects:

3) Preparation of ODF 1.2 Errata 01 (Needs an editor)

-ODF 1.3

--Discussion of ODF Plugfest Brussels April 19th/20th


Program is here:  http://plugfest.opendocsociety.org/doku.php?id=plugfests:201204_brussels:info

Several TC members will be attending: Rob, Don, Svante, and Jos

-- Discussion of entity processing in XML, the risks, and whether we should address this in ODF 1.2 errata.

Action item --Rob to draft a communication for distribution via comment list and home page

-- Change Tracking

Rob's idea: vote to "move to move the previous question", if that passes (2/3) then proceed two rounds of voting on the 3 proposals, dropping the 3rd place proposal after the 1st round.

Robin's idea: pick a small group of more neutral members to evaluate the proposals and make a recommendation. TC then votes on the recommendation

- Proposed Charter for Select Committee

"To recommend to the ODF TC a proposal for ODF 1.3 Change Tracking.  The Select Committee may review the existing three proposals, and recommend one of them, a combination or modification of them, or bring forward entirely new ideas.   The Select Committee shall conduct business the TC's mailing list and via conference calls.  The Select Committee shall report back to the ODF TC on or before June 30th, 2012."

Ideally, three members of the select committee.  Nominations included Rob (declined), Oliver, Jos, Thorsten B. and Patrick.  Several nominees requested time to think about this and check regarding time commitment.

Plan to vote on the charter and the committee next Monday, if TC attendance is good, otherwise via electronic ballot.

Adjourned 10:33 EDT
