MINUTES OF PACIFIC UBL TC MEETING 00:30 - 02:30 UTC TUESDAY 9 JANUARY 2007 ATTENDANCE Jon Bosak (chair) G. Ken Holman Tim McGrath (vice chair) Andy Schoka STANDING ITEMS Additions to the calendar: http://ibiblio.org/bosak/ubl/calendar.htm AS: For TBG3, put Kama and Andy. GKH: Still trying to organize a UBL International 2007 Q2 colocated with XTech in May. TM: Still trying for a UBL TC meeting colocated with the September UN/CEFACT meeting in Stockholm. JB: Will be giving a UBL presentation at the Federal xml CoP meeting the morning of 17 January. Subcommittee report: PSC AS: Didn't work this week; ML proposing next Monday, with BITS on the agenda. TM: Most of the PSC effort is going into the TBG1 collaboration. The UBL-TBG1 team is meeting in Brussels next week and starting to look at the Catalogue document. JB: So we have three UBL-UN/CEFACT collaboration meetings next week: with TBG1 (PSC), TBG3 (TSC), and ATG2 (NDR). AGREED to skip next week's UBL TC calls due to the absence of several members at various meetings with UN/CEFACT. Calls will resume the week of 22 January. Subcommittee report: TSC TM: TSC call scheduled for Tuesday to talk about the meeting with TBG3 in Lyon next week. Part of the agenda in Lyon will be to rationalize the TBG3 and UNeDocs data models into a single conceptual model. Review of Atlantic call of 2006.12.13 JB: Forgot to note that we agreed with the Pacific TC participants to go ahead with the LSC templates. NDR COLLABORATION AS: See the December 2006 UN/CEFACT quarterly report on this subject (page 7). AGREED and JB's chief role in the ATG2 meeting next week will be to lay our business requirements and relevant position papers on the table: - Latest UBL NDRs - UMCLVV (GKH: Note that this has been adopted by the NZ Ministry of Education.) - Extension (what's in the UBL 2.0 Standard + the original business requirements from BR (document #16994)) - Customization (GKH's methodology, document #18849) TM: Note that in Singapore we made the NDR editors the owners of the larger customization strategy document going forward. SCHEDULE REVIEW See list at end of these minutes. ACTION ITEM REVIEW ACTION: PSC to follow up with Harm Jan van Burg to gain an understanding of his negative vote on UBL 2.0. TM: Will put on the PSC agenda. ACTION: PSC to review the procurement instances in the BITS draft in order to align the procurement data with the data in the transportation instances. AS/TM: Will be considered at next meeting. Jon Bosak Chair, OASIS UBL TC ================================================================== SCHEDULE REVIEW ================================================================== STANDALONE PIECES Naming and Design Rules Will be on the agenda for the Atlantic TC call 10 January. UBL Methodology for Code List and Value Validation (UMCLVV; was CLVVM) Now at version 0.8 draft 2 (as of 2 January). Customization Methodology In progress -- note that NDR Editors MG/MC are owners. SBS Continues as a project. Gruffudd has finished proposals for about 20 of the UBL 2.0 document types. AGREED to progress SBS and BITS separately; BITS is not trying to specify a data model but is rather an end-to-end example implementation. SBS transport schemas will be based on the instance documents used in BITS. Signature Implementation Guide Has been translated; need to get this from from PLB and confirm it as a UBL deliverable. Output specifications To be based on SBS. Input specifications "Implicit in XForms." IDD DELIVERY ESTIMATES CNLSC: Translation underway. ACTION: TM to contact CNLSC chair William Chan for an estimate of Chinese translation completion. DKLSC: Mid-January 2007. ESLSC: End of January 2007. JB: Former ESLSC co-chair Florencio Díaz Vilches has left OASIS, leaving Oriol Bausa Peris as the chair of the ESLSC. ITLSC: March 2007. JPLSC: August 2007. KRLSC: Seeking funding. AGREED to take what we've received by March and publish IDD 2.0 incrementally. SUPPORT PACKAGE PROPER [Pointer to] DK Implementation Guide: Scenarios with English-language descriptions, sample documents, Schematron-based validation for DK subset TM: AS and TM are reviewing a draft of this. DK Implementation Guide completion: XForms for DK subset, completion of translations JB: Status of XForms? GKH: Totally unrelated to Stephen Green's sourceforge project. JB: Will try to ask PB about this in the Atlantic call. Basic International Trade Scenario (BITS) In progress; PSC to review initial draft while work continues on the transport side. Output stylesheets for BITS TM: Will put on TSC agenda. GKH: Will pick this up in April. Code List Support (gc code lists, default association files, default .sch assertion files, default XSLT validation files) "To be generated after completion of CLVVM [now UMCLVV]" GKH: As the schemas didn't change, it's not necessary to produce a new zip. So this is done except for user documentation. It's been mentioned on the mail list and posted in the OASIS docs repository. But we need wider buy-in for the exhaustive verification approach before we can publish this as a UBL deliverable. Model UBL Letter Agreement Bosak to do. TM: Will send URL for the UN version. EA data model Done (Bosak to download). FX data model Due week of 8 January 2007. ACTION: JB to ping Michael Dill. AGREED to publish the Support Package as a Support Page rather than a document. ACTION: JB to request OASIS to change the Software SC page to Support SC, with original membership to consist of the UBL 2.0 editors and all the subcommittee chairs; the SSC page will then be used to make links to support package components, the the SSC mail list will be used for requests to form the links.
