Next meeting: Thursday, July 5, 2001, 10:30 AM (UTC -05:00)

1. Issue 3: xml:base: now that it's Rec, I hope we can close this issue

TC agreed unanimously to close this issue, meaning that we will support the
xml:base attribute.

Of historical interest:

2. Issues process

TC agreed that we have one more week to suggest additional issues for
consideration for v1.0 by just mailing them to the list; after July 5, 2001,
an issue must have the support of one-third of voting members in order to
get it on the list.

Original mail:

There is no issue on the issue list for the issue process.

3. Common annotations: should we produce a spec as an official committee
work product?

Kohsuke expressed concern that such a spec would augment the infoset. Makoto
said that he feels that people are used to being able to express default
values for attributes. Kohsuke said it may be purely for documentation but
it looks inconsistent. Norm is converting DocBook to RELAX NG and Makoto was
interested in seeing his work on default attributes before we make a
decision. James said that he thinks having our own annotations would make
things simpler than having to depend on XHTML.

The TC deferred on this issue until next week.

There is no issue on the issue list for this.

Of historical interest (see associated threads for broader discussion):


4. Issue 42: Syntax for not and difference in name classes

James countered Makoto's <anyNameExcept> proposal with
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/relax-ng/200106/msg00259.html and
Makoto voiced his agreement with

The TC agreed to:

1. drop not/difference and replace with except in name classes
2. drop difference in patterns and use except with data subordinate
3. Open a new issue on what to allow in except

James suggested that we play around with the grammar to see what comes
simply and cleanly.

5. Extending not and difference to strings

This discussion was subsumed under item 4.

6. Issue 5: Syntax for global attribute on attribute element

James sent out a pleading mail on getting discussion going on this
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/relax-ng/200106/msg00266.html; he may
send out a threatening one if we don't get going.

See http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/relax-ng/200106/msg00202.html

Deferred till next week.

7. Issue 43: Syntax for key and keyRef

Message from Franck Delahaye
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/relax-ng/200106/msg00296.html inspired
this issue. He pointed out some tripwire in the current implementation.

There was general support for moving to an element rather than attribute
syntax for key/keyRef. James said we are element heavy and such a move is
stylistically more consistent with the language. Having key/keyRef inside
data does not solve Franck's problem.

BTW, David doesn't like regular expressions!

We deferred on this issue.

8. Issue 41: Adding pattern facet to <text/>: I would like to get people's
opinion on which side of the 80/20 line this is

This issue was brought forward by Makoto in
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/relax-ng/200106/msg00295.html. James
feels that this is an issue of character classes, not just a facet. I18n
people see to want it but Fabio was not so sure it was that important to
them. Makoto was to send a link on character collections from Martin Duerst
which his did at

TC tentatively agreed not have pattern facet but we still want to address
the issue.

9. Issue 32: Context info for type libraries
