Subject: RE: [xliff] Groups - Standing XLIFF Teleconference (Bi-Weekly)modified

Sorry I didn't know we had a new version of the filename conventions. But
you will note that:

1- That illustrates the problem with OASIS recommendation: if they had a
mechanism for which there is a unique filename to look at, regardless of the
version, I would have pointed at the latest specifications for filename.

2- They don't respect their own convension, that document is a working
draft, and should be named
chairs-filenaming-1.0-draft-02.html not chairs-filenaming-02.html.

Also, without an additional field (revison number or date) it's going to be
difficult to keep track of fixes.
I guess we should call the latest version of 1.1 xliff-core-1.1-cs.html and
just link to it from xliff-specification.html. The main problem is that
there are already many links to the specifications and they go to
xliff-specification.html, not to the various filenames OASIS keeps comming
up with (it's still a working draft...).

The OASIS document naming requirements
(http://www.oasis-open.org/spectools/docs/chairs-filenaming-02.html) require
us to save our Committee Spec to the following naming convention:
xliff-core-1.1-cs.html.  Date number suffix is specifically not recommended
for the Committee Spec version.   The standards review process requires that
we abide by all the OASIS rule and requirements.

Yves - can you please upload the correct comittee spec with the OASIS
approved file name?

Hi John,

To answer one of your question:

4/Standards Review Process - the approvals process and timing.
At this meeting we will vote on the timing of the submission to
the OASIS standards review process. Chair proposes that we submit
the XLIFF 1.1 spec, Schema and Whitepaper for peer review
starting 11 Aug and ending 24 September 2003. Proposed reviewers
are: all OASIS TC's, LISA OSCAR, W3C i18n WG, and possibly LRC.
Coverage rosters for monitoring and responding to comments and
queries during the review process will be drawn up. If not enough
coverage is available during August due to holidays, etc, then
we'll push out the review period start date to early September.
FYI: document names for specs, schema's etc, are being reviewed
and modified in accordance with OASIS naming conventions.

</jr>The submission text is good. However, we have a 20030522 and
a 20030625 cs-core-xliff-1.1 version of the document. What is
different in the 20030625 version? We point at the 20030522 in
most places but when Latest version: is selected the 20030625
document comes up. This is a bit confusing. Can we clean this up?
I vote to approve once these issues are resolved, if possible.

The latest version of the specification to refere to is ALWAYS:
(no date). The ones with date are there for history (same mechanism as for
W3C specifications). Obviously in same case you may want to refer to a
specific version.

The change versions are also normaly indicated in the "Changes Since
Previous Version" appendix. In this case the change between 20030522 and
20030625 is a correction in the XSD file (we had a duplicated entries
"pageheader" for the datatype values, it needed to be one "pageheader" and
one "pagefooter"). Since the attributes values are also listed in the
specification (automatically generated from the XSD file), it had to be
updated too.

Good luck at your dentist (I went through that yesterday :)
