Subject: [xliff] Minutes of the XLIFF TC held on February 25th

The Minutes of the XLIFF TC held on February 25th are below.

2/ Minutes of last meeting read and agree proposed by John, seconded by David.


3/ Review open issues in the tracking report:

Tony noted that items 14-17 are incorrectly color-coded (should be magenta/purple as they are assigned to the editor)


[19]C onsolidated attribute values list

Bryan's tests were successful. This has been sent to Yves to incorporate in to the XSD.

Vote to accept option (2) as a valid solution. No opposition voiced. Motion carried.

The remaining issue is with mime types. Some discussion followed on whether to enumerate all the mime types and sub-types in the XSD. Bryan offered to look at whether we could compose the XSD to cover the existing MIME types and sub-types from the RFC by the end of the week and also allow pattern matching. It is to be based on the current "purpose" attribute which uses a union between a pattern match and a closed list.


[20] Phases of <alt-trans>

John didn't have a proposal for this. John suggested we leave it for V1.1. Tony asked what impact that would have. The absence of a tight definition leaves the door open fort ools developers to interpret the values differently. Tony suggested that we wouldn't be able to fix this regardless of how much time was spent. John agreed and pointed out that there were other areas open to interpretation in thes pecification. Tony suggested that we resolve this issue after V1.1. Johnp roposed that we defer this until after V1.1. Seconded by Mark. Carried without opposition.


[21] Attribute values list

Tony's mail with the attribute values attachment was reviewed http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200302/msg00052.html



The list for context-type was accepted without opposition



The list for count-type was changed to hyphenated, lower-case values (e.g. "no-of-usages"). John suggested that we allow all values for "datatype", "restype" and "state" to be valid for "count-type" and remove duplicates from the "count-type" list. Some discussion about complex counting followed but it was decided to put this to one side until a later date. Some values were moved to the "state" attribute list. This just left "total", "repetition" and "num-usages". The list was then accepted without opposition.



"menu" renamed to "menufile". Some discussion on the "mimetype" value. Decision reached tor emove "mimetype" and incorporate valid "mime-type" values in to datatype." rcdata" moved to restype. "stringtable" and "window" removed. Shigamichis uggested some further values and will send them to Tony. The list was thena ccepted without opposition.



The list was accepted without opposition.
