Subject: Notes from April 6, 2020 teleconference


Hope everyone is at the start of a great week!

Notes from today are attached.



Patrick: Sorry for being late!
Patrick: quorum - yes
Patrick: 1. Dial-In, Roll Call, Determination of Quorum and Voting Rights

2. Motion (simple majority): Approve the Agenda

3. Motion (simple majority): Approve minutes of 30 March 2020 (below)

4. ODF Later issues (Preference to current TC members and cycling
through their issues so no one is on the spot for all of them in a
meeting), btw, limiting the search to open/deferred issues counts 134:


a. Remove deprecated table:cell-range-address attribute within the
<chart:plot-area> element
https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3741 reporter: Andreas
Guelzow (Deferred from last week)

b. The color mode "Watermark" makes images pale, not transparent
https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3841 reporter: Regina
Henschel (deferred from last week)

c. 4.7 Empty Cell terminology

6. Adjournment
Patrick: Agenda- approved by consent
Patrick: Minutes from 30 March 2020 - approved by consent
Patrick: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3741
Patrick: Regina - LO writes this attribute but it doesn't use it when it
reads it.
Patrick: So, resolution: Delete the table:cell-range-address attribute
within the <chart:plot-area> element completely. - both in schema and text.
Patrick: Regina, when missing, makes no difference.
Patrick: set to ODF 1.4, resolve by deletion of the attribute in schema
and text
Patrick: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3841
Patrick: Regina - question was whether we say in more detail what
watermark means - Word has something similar - wash out - not transparent
Patrick: transparent is false - only Caligra makes it transparent as overlay
Patrick: do we want to describe the filter exactly or do we want another
word than transparent?
Patrick: would need an additional way for Calligra if we define the
filter exactly -
Patrick: Regina would prefer to define exactly so implementers know what
to do
Patrick: Andreas - could have an attribute that has either / or for
method of implementation.
Patrick: choice between the two approaches
Patrick: Michael - an additional attribute - perhaps hard coded meanings
would be better
Patrick: Should have an additional attribute - Regina will write
something down for the next meeting -
Patrick: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3768
Patrick: Regina - ISBLANK - replace "if it is blank (has no value)",
with "if it is empty" ...
Patrick: Remove from COUNTBLANK - "A cell is blank if the cell is empty
for purposes of COUNTBLANK." and "It is implementation-defined whether
or not a cell returning the empty string ("") is considered blank;
because of this, there is a (potential) subtle difference between
Patrick: should show "blank" as technical term, not the common use of blank
Patrick: Andreas - would be good to avoid "blank" in the semantic
description - may need implementation defined for empty string -
Patrick: Patrick to propose language for COUNTBLANK that avoids using
blank in the definition -
Michael Stahl: Excel counts empty string in COUNTBLANK
Patrick: Office-1322 vote on for next meeting
Patrick: Adjourned
