8:05    Summary of XLIFF TC achievements since last F2F
             1.1 Committee Specification and XSD
             Standardised XLIFF presentation
             1.1 Whitepaper
             1.1 Website FAQ
             1.1 Peer Review
             Adoption by vendor/publisher communities

 
Tony listed the following implementations:
    - RWS: Utilities to extract to XLIFF; Rainbow; various XLIFF XSLT,
etc.
    - Alchemy Catalyst 5.0, visual XLIFF editor in separate module
    - XML.Intl: editing support
    - Heartsome: online XLIFF editor
    - SDL: XML filter, needs target to be populated
    - Trados: none but tageditor
    - Passolo: visual XLIFF editor in a free downloadable module
    - Bowne: Elcano
    - Oracle: Hyperhub, internal editor


8:15    XLIFF 1.1 complimentary work
          Canonical Representation Guide:
                -resource profiles
                   agree to list of resources
                   assign owners to individual resources
                   agree to schedule of deliverables
                -"cookbook" examples
                   Sketch out contents at a high level
                   assign owners to major sections
          Implementation Guides
                best practices for developing proprietary filters
                case studies for mapping proprietary resource to XLIFF
                working with Web Services

 
 Tony presented a list from Mat: 
   - asp 
   - html 
   - javaclass 
   - javapropertyresourcebundle 
   - javaproperetyresource 
   - javascript 
   - resx 
   - rtf 
   - winres 
   - plaintext 
   - xml
 Additionally we discussed:
   - baml (binary blob in resx)
   - xaml
   - msi
   - inf


 It was pointed out that the winres spec had been worked on and was
close to completion. Also, Catalyst & Passolo had implemented based on
that work. There was some discussion about whether to just do generic
guidelines of objects/types regardless of source format or do a
representation for each. It was suggested that we do both the generic
dialog representation with file format specific canonical representation
that conformed to the generic guidelines. It was agreed to start with
win32 work as a basis for the generic since so much has already been
done. John will forward his latest work to the group; Gerard will
compare that with resx; Tony will look at Java Resource Bundles. That
spec will be made generic and get rid of winres specific names.

 html and rtf are markup langugaes and don't lend themselves to the
same representations. Thus, separate work would need to be carried on
for these formats. It was agreed to do this in parallel. Tony will ask
Bryan and Doug if they would llike to work on these.

 Since javaclass is an un-i18n file, John vehemently opposed doing
anything with this format. There was some concensus on this point.

 java resource bundles should be able to map to the generic type work
we are doing. Tony will compare them with the winres spec.


The initially presented list morphed into the following list of issues:

	Generic objects: 
		Dialogs,  Forms
		Menus
		String Tables,  Messages
		Markup with inline tags (e.g., RTF, HTML Tags)
		Etc.

	asp
	HTML, rtf (Bryan,  Doug?)
	javaresourcebundle (list, property) Tony
	javascript
	Resx  Gerard ->  Enda
		XAML
		BAML
	winres  - almost finished but missing Markup.  John to send out updated version
	msi,  inf (examples)
	Embedded XLIFF in XML (examples)
	Skeleton File 


 

9:30    Post Mortem of XLIFF 1.1 spec process
          Industry perception of XLIFF 

 
Tony reported that at the recent LRC, XLIFF was mentioned negatively by
2 separate tool vendors. The problems reported are that there is no
clear representation of resources and publishers (clients) are asking
for it with unrealistic expectations of what it can do and the vendors
ability to handle it.
 

          What went well

 
XLIFF reached the committee specification level.
In 1.1 we added extensibility through the namespace mechanism.
 

          What didn't go well

 
1. Attendance has been a problem, Tony is being forced to follow Oasis
rules, which will move inactive voting members to observer status.
2. Gerard mentioned that drafting vs. issue resolution was 50-50 and
should have been 80-20.
3. Members not prepared at meetings.
4. Ineffective use of mailing list, use more rather than phone 
5. Proposal process has been too easy, this led to constant changes
with little time to investigate the ramifications.
6. Couldn't make major changes because it was a point release.
 

          Suggestions for improvement
          Improvement Implementation Plan

10:00   Break

10:15   What's next?
          Conclude standards submission process
             -blocking issues

 
  - address errata
  - collect more input
  - complete 1.1 specification work in January '04.
  - need certification of 1.1 use from 3 Oasis members
  - Oracle needs legal approval for their certification
  - Tony will approach Connect (Steven Flinter)
 

          Discuss post 1.1 options (once complimentary work is done)
             -Place TC in holding pattern with bi-monthly or quarterly

meetings
             -Conclude XLIFF TC - with option to restart if / when
needed
             -"Clarify" charter to extend TC's work to XLIFF 1.x / 2.0
             -Other suggestions

 
  - L10n directive: (Shigemichi, Gerard) in XLIFF
  - SKL file issues
  - Andzrej has proposal specific to XML
  - It may be premature to decide what we'll do wwhen finished since 
 

11:30   Review action item assignments, and any items in the
"unresolved 
issues bucket"

 
* Monthly meeting instead of weekly.
* Kara Warburton reported the following issues:
   1. mrk has too much info in the mtype (it is overloaded), should be
2 elements: term and mrk
      IBM
    should be 
      IBM
   We cannot use tbx namespace here because  does not allow
extension points
   2. state-qualifier has the same issue .... 
   3. Wwe need a glossary in the spec of esoteric and obscure terms
   4. editorial needs
     - descriptions are totally useless
     - need examples
 

Noon    Break for, or work through lunch,  depending upon progress.
