Issues IPC WD-07 John noted that Profile is close to being ready and they he is looking for feedback from the TC. There are some outstanding issues with typos, etc. that are known. Choice Element Rich reviewed his finding of a <choice> element that has apparent conflicts with MinOccurs and MacOccurs definitions. He is asking for clarification and ask if his assertion is correct and if we can modify the specification to clarify. Rich confirmed that the schema matches the document in both v2 and v3 documentation. This seems to be an issue that has been around since v1.1. Rich offered to make a proposal to resolve the problem. Paul offered that we must be careful about taking backwards compatibility into consideration. Danny offered that empty polices should be invalid in v2. Hall suggested that we first determine what the change should be and then how to act upon it (and that the Oasis process is designed to incorporate these types of changes via implementation). XACML 3.0 higher order bag functions may Rich offered that new URIs should be developed for v3 bag function specification. Hal encourages everyone in the TC to review this discussion on the list to gain understanding of the changes that are coming. Hal suggested not just changing the "3.0" aspect of the URI because people may not see it. Paul countered that any change to the URI should be detected by a machine. Danny concurred. Hal withdrew his concern. Typo in core spec: Section 5.29 AttributeDesignator Rich briefly reviewed this and raised the question about how these issues are being tracked. Hal will be reaching out to Erik to discuss his availability for acting as Editor moving forward. meeting adjourned.
