  Review of Pacific call minutes

  Membership status review

    - voting status is determined by the following:
      - existing voting members must not miss two consecutive meetings to
        maintain voting status
      - non-voting members must attend two consecutive meetings to obtain
        voting status
    - current voting member list (alphabetical):
      - Oriol Bausa
      - Kenneth Bengtsson
      - Peter Borresen
      - Jon Bosak (secretary)
      - Kees Duvekot
      - G. Ken Holman (co-chair)
      - Ole Madsen
      - Tim McGrath (co-chair)
      - Andy Schoka (TSC chair)
    - what can we do to recruit more volunteers to the TC to share
      in the work?

Naming and Design Rules

  - Ken has begun editing the new work project
  - Kees suggests we consider splitting the two into separate documents, the
    OASIS Standard being the prescriptive rules and a Committee Note being the
    descriptive clauses of how the UBL TC followed the rules
  - Ken will continue creating the document as an amalgam and then we will
    look at splitting it up when the content is complete
  - Tim suggested we revive the NDR Subcommittee for review purposes; Ken
    has updated the subcommittee home page accordingly:


  - discussions specific to the development of NDR will take place in the
    NDR Subcommittee and the subcommittee will forward recommendations to
    the TC
  - please indicate to Ken if you wish to be added to NDR SC

Question regarding document interpretation

 - question regarding inferred order of information in a UBL document
   - Kees asks about the example of the Address Line being a repeatable
     CAC:  the order of the lines is inferred by the order of the
     elements, is this sufficient? can it be assumed that a recipient's
     system will interpret the address lines correctly
 - proposed answer:
   - in the absence of other control information associating sibling
     elements with other information in the document, the XML order
     of a repeating element can be assumed to be in a semantic order
   - note that document order of elements is guaranteed across XML
     implementations, thus not risking any differences in interpretation

UBL TC next steps

  - what promotional issues need to be addressed?
  - UBL 2 is an organic thing that can be grown

  - what do we do for implementation support?
  - should we write a companion document of how to use the specification?
  - industry-specific documentation?
  - make it easier to find what is relevant without changing the actual

  - how about another UBL International conference in order to
    promote the release of UBL 2.1?  Can anyone host this conference?
      http://ublconference.com or http://ublconference.org
      - perhaps an event in North America and in Europe in 2014
        - Washington DC, Burlington MA (OASIS)?
        - http://www.exchange-summit.com/ - Barcelona - October 2014
        - BII - Paris in June?  Frankfurt in September?
        - Beijing June 2014 (JTC 1 SC32)?

  - how about a Twitter feed of UBL adoption and announcements?

  - what subject matter issues need to be addressed?
    - more transportation co-ordination issues
    - communications with transportation regulatory organizations

  - what technical issues need to be addressed?
    - are any schema changes needed?

  - what educational materials need to be made available?
    - how about YouTube videos regarding access to the UBL package?

   ACTION:  - proposed meeting schedule over the summer (late May to early
            - suggest a light schedule with the option to add additional
              meetings if required for collaboration or unexpected voting
   Proposed: - work only two meetings ahead so that if anything comes up
               we can act accordingly

 Will anyone be requesting a leave of absence in the near future?  For
 privacy reasons, this discussion will be kept off of the minutes.
