3/ Announcements

 B. XLIFF/DITA collaboration meeting took place - joint webinar scheduled
 C. OAXAL Kickoff meeting took place
4/ Issues
 A. Do we need additional split-and-merge capability for XLIFF 2.0?  Or are the current mechanisms adequate? (Rodolfo and Magnus)
 B. " element and xml:space handling" (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200804/msg00003.html) (Asgeir)
      - Shall we table discussion on this, and include it in the skeleton element issue? Or does it stand alone?
 C. Resource Guides are still marked as "Draft"
      - Mary and Bryan established that the Resource Guides are not part of the specification so Committee Draft is the correct status
      - These will be covered by the proposed new OASIS document type, "Informational Document"

Should we consolidate them? Or do they serve unique purposes?
7/ XLIFF 1.2 Errata draft (Asgeir)
 A. Asgeir created a page on the wiki with the known Errata for XLIFF 1.2.

Roll Call: Bryan Shnabel, Magnus Martikainen, Asgeir Frimannsson, Tony Jewtushenko, Rodolfo Raya, Eric Mader, Doug Domeny and Andrzej Zydron.

Apologies: Christian Lieske and Milan Karasek

Rodolfo moved to accept minutes and Tony seconded.


* Bryan reported that there is an open position at LRC. Reinhard Schaler said that the LRC wishes to become more active in the XLIFF TC.

* A joint call for organizing a DITA/XLIFF webinar was held last week. Tony and Bryan summarized the details. Bryan will contact JoAnn Hackos and post the call minutes. 

* OAXAL is a new OASIS TC that will try to relate all translation and publishing open standards. The initial meeting was held yesterday and Andrzej Zydron summarized the goals of OAXAL.

Improvements for XLIFF 2.0:

 * Split and merge. Splitting segments can be implemented using  elements. Merge can be done using  as mentioned in section 2.8 of the specification. However, it would be nice to have a mechanism that allows merging the content of source text that facilitates exporting translated segments as TMX or to a format suitable for importing in  translation memory system. Magnus and Rodolfo will discuss this issue off list and provide feedback to the TC.

 * The need for mapping  to source/target fragments when using  was discussed. Magnus mentioned a potential solution and will submit a proposal.

 * There is a need for an element that contains changes done to  to keep a revision history. A few options for implementing this feature were suggested. A proposal that incorporate use cases and a potential solution was requested to TC members.

 * Changes to  elements were defined as a bad idea. Typos in  should be corrected by modifying  elements. Bryan suggested including this conclusion in the FAQ.

 * The full content of  should be included in . XLIFF 1.2 specification needs to be corrected and spaces between sentences should be included in the examples. The change should be included in the upcoming Errata for XLIFF 1.2.

 * Asgeirs comments about xml:space attributes were briefly discussed. Asgeir proposes adding the xml:space attribute to  and  and removing it from higher level elements. Preserving spaces in the internal skeleton is essential. Bryan suggested removing xml:space from the schema and allowing attributes extensions in all elements.

Bryan suggested to start preparing a draft for XLIFF 1.2 errata.

Ballot: meeting day and meeting time stay will remain unchanged. It was suggested to have biweekly meetings starting on September/October.
