Subject: [xliff] XLIFF (Embedded XLIFF SubGroup) Teleconference Minutes,Tuesday, 22 Oct 2002

Chair: Tony Jewtushenko
Minutes: Mark Levins
Present: Peter Reynolds, Mark Levins, Tony Jewtushenko, Enda McDonnell, Yves Savourel, Mirek Driml, John Reid, Christian Lieske, Matt Lovatt, Shigemichi Yazawa
Apologies: Reinhard Schaler

Embedded XLIFF:
Yves reviewed general concept document http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200206/msg00001.html

Localisation Directives:
Christian Lieske explained recent email & suggestions (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200210/msg00036.html)
After much discussion, consensus was reached that Localisation Directives needed much further work which would necessitate the delay of the XLIFF 1.1 specification publication.
Shigemichi Yazawa and Mark Levins pointed out the different purposes XLIFF in its current state and Localisation Directives are used.
Tony Jewtushenko suggested that Localisation Directives should become the main focus of the TC after the publication of XLIFF 1.1.
John Reid suggested getting others involved in the TC who have prior work completed around Localisation Directives.
A motion was passed proposing that the results and decisions of this meeting be put to a ballot of the full TC (proposed by Mark Levins, seconded by Peter Reynolds).
A motion was passed after a unanimous vote that the XLIFF 1.1 specification would not include any reference to Localisation Directives (proposed by Tony Jewtushenko, seconded by Mark Levins)

Embedded XLIFF
Christian Lieske clarified and explained how Schema supported 'global' type definitions can be used to allow embedding of XLIFF (and validation) in other XML formats.
Matt Lovatt raised a discussion around the practicality of using embedded XLIFF in other XML formats. This discussion evolved into a debate over whether the Schema should impose constraints (using or not using global type definitions) or not, thereby allowing users to embed XLIFF according to their own needs or not.
John Reid proposed a ballot (seconded by Mark Levins) that "Section 2.5 of the XLIFF specification should be removed. The XLIFF schema should be written that all XLIFF elements, but not attributes, are globally typed to allow embedding in other XML formats as needed", which was passed to put to the whole TC.

Next meeting - Tues,  29 Oct 2002, 04:00PM Europe/London/Dublin  / 08:00 AM PST
