European members will start at the usual time.  Because of the
in dates for switching to daylight savings time, and as a result of the

5pm CET / 4pm BST / 12noon EST / 9am PST 
(4pm GMT)

  The following OASIS members were identified and sent requests: 
  - Fredrik Corneliusson, Lionbridge 
  - Christian Lieske, SAP AG 
  - Matthew Lovatt, Oracle Corporation 
  - Magnus Martikainen, SDL International (Magnus confirmed that the

Committee Specification to the membership of OASIS for consideration as
an OASIS Standard 

[note: I pushed each of the following dates out to reflect a more
realistic timeframe for completing 1 thru iv, above]

 G. Monday, May 16 If at least 15% of OASIS voting membership has voted
to approve, and no negative votes, XLIFF 1.2 becomes an OASIS Standard.
What if it fails? 

4/ XLIFF 2.0 - Life after approval of XLIFF 1.2 
 - Below we have three lists: A. things we want to do, B. things we
haven't decided upon yet, and C. things we rule out for 2.0. 
 - Let's look at each item in B. to see if we can move it into A. or C.
(or if we're not sure, leave it in B.) 
 - Assign a TC member to each approved 2.0 item 
 A. Items the TC has identified as likely next pursuits for XLIFF 2.0 
  i Reference implementations or toolkit(s) similar to DITA 
  ii XLIFF validator tool to be included in a toolkit 
  v XLIFF Round Trip tool could be modified to support: 
  (DITA/ITS -> XLIFF -> Translated DITA model) 
  (Bryan - it looks like I can change the xliffRoundTrip Tool license
from GPL to 
  Apache {according to an inquiry I made to licensing@fsf.org, the GPL
license expert debunked our 
  misconception that "Once something has a GPL license it is impossible
to get out of it"}) 
 B. Items the TC has not yet ruled out 
  iii Submitting to ISO once XLIFF becomes an OASIS standard 
  iv Additional Representation Guides (DITA,.NET / Win32, Docbook) 
  vi Subsetting / restricting XSD as proposed by Christian 
  vii Version control Metadata - need to track revision information 
  viii Ability to store Multilingual Content. 
  ix Create a bare-bones XLIFF core, then provide extension modules that
support additional features. 
  x "Simplify, Extend and Clarify" 
  (Core XLIFF functionality would be in primary XLIFF namespace; would
be very simple to implement.) 
  (Extensions would provide support for more complicated features like,
Segmentation, Pre-Translation, Generic Inline Markup, etc.) 
  xi Schema Catalogues; host a namespace Catalogues 
  for XLIFF 3rd party custom / extension namespaces. 
  xii More work on inline-elements: 
  (Separate inline elements from other elements? Maybe as an extension?
Stronger rules for when to use each inline tag?) 
  xiii Define a multi-lingual "Localisation Kit" format, which may
  (XLIFF content + original source material+ all target language files+
skeleton files + reference files + some sort of manifest document
describing/defining the payload. 
  xiv Using XLIFF as a primary content authoring container. 
  (Author stores contend directly to XLIFF instead of another
proprietary format.) 
  xv Terminology Markup 
  (Has been suggested by Kara Warburton of IBM some time ago to support
terminology markup such as translate (yes/no), subject-categorization,
type, etc.) 

 C. Items the TC has ruled out as likely features for XLIFF 2.0 

5/ Reports from liaisons involved with other standards groups: 
 A. W3C i18n 
 B. Oscar 
 C. Trans-WS 
 D. LRC 
 E: OASIS DITA Translation Subcommittee 

6/ Any Other Business
