Subject: [relax-ng] Minutes RELAX NG TC mtg 2002-11-14
Minutes for a RELAX NG TC telecon held on 14 November 2002 at 9:00 am EST (UTC -05:00) Attending James Josh Kohsuke Makoto Mike Missing Norm David Agenda: 1. Specification draft James: Has everyone had a chance to look at the draft? Do you have comments? Makoto: I had some comments on the HTML. James: Yes, those are bugs in the XML and HTML. I need to have a look at those. In regard to the names of types, what if we capitalized the type names? Would that satisfy you, Makoto? Makoto: Well, I'm not an expert on English... Kohsuke: Capitalization might help; I can live with it either way. James: Capitalization couldn't hurt. Can everyone live with that? All: Yes James: There was also a bug that David Rosenberg identified having to do with string concatenation. I have suggested that we use the tilde (~) as a concatenation operator. I also considered circumflex (^). Does anyone prefer another character? Kohsuke: What language uses ~? James: Perl 6. Kohsuke: Some use a dot (.); that might be an alternative. James: Perl used it but people didn't like it. It is easy to lose. In absence of opposition, we will use the ~. [No opposition] Josh: I have an editorial issue: the overloading of the term annotations in section 5. I found it a little confusing [the use of the term in the compatibility spec versus the way we use it in the compact spec] James: We can change the example in 5.4 [use something other than x:notation]; add a clarifying sentence to the beginning of section 5, setting the scene for those who may not have read the compatibility spec James: Mike, you wanted an example? Mike: I rethought this because we have an example, the RELAX NG compact schema for RELAX NG at the end of the spec. A reference to this in section 2 would by nice, though. James: Okay. James: Publishing plan. I'll discuss with Norm. Perhaps the November 21 could be the day. Let's take a formal vote. Who is in favor of adopting the compact syntax draft as a committee spec, after I make the minor changes discussed today? Josh: In favor Makoto: Yes Mike: Yes Kohsuke: Yes James: Yes Makoto: I suggest we amend the ISO DSDL part 2 spec with the compact spec. James: When is the closing date? Makoto: DIS is in Dec. 2002. James: I think US is proposing a name change. Ken [Holman] told me that. Makoto: After FCD, there is a 6 month ballot, then DSDL part 2 can become an IS. James: I'd rather not [disrupt/delay] things; we could add it as an amendment afterwards. Josh: Are we going to have a face to face at XML 2002? James: I am not sure I am going yet. What will we discuss? Makoto: Type assignment. James: Maybe you can talk me into it. I'll see if I can get a room. [Dropped off call twice] Let's see if we can do this by email. Let me know your arrival times, your presentations times, your time of availability. We may need to call a phone meeting to deal with last minute issues. "Assuming I can muster enough enthusiasm, I may see you all in Baltimore!"
