Subject: Groups - XLIFF TC Monthly Teleconference added


This is an important meeting because we need to come to an understanding
and agreement regarding the need for a point release of XLIFF (1.2.1).

Also, because of the complicated number of new and existing issues, I've
categorized our agenda items as:

** Category 1 Issues: XLIFF Point Release vs. Errata **
** Category 2 Issues: General, not tied to 1.2.1 or 2.0 **
** Category 3 issues: XLIFF 2.0 **

This is meant to help us stay organized. It is not meant to assign
priority.  If we keep our agenda items categorized, I think we could choose
which category to address at the onset of each meeting.

This was a complicated agenda to put together.  Please feel free to let me
know if you have suggestions, or if I'm letting anything fall through the

** Category 1 Issues: XLIFF Point Release vs. Errata **

4/ XLIFF 1.2.1 (point release) vs. Errata

To summarize the reply we got from Mary McRae:

In cases where there is ambiguity between spec and schema, 
errata may be enough.  In cases where there is contradiction 
between spec and schema, change is substantive and the possibility 
of preparing an errata is eliminated.  Since the latter condition 
applies to us, we must reconcile the differences, fix any bugs, 
and create a new release.

 A. Tony's excellent advice is that we absolutely, and aggressively limit the scope 
 B. Asgeir's excellent work at cataloging the bugs and discrepancies (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF1.2/Errata) as the place where we begin to define the scope of a point release.

5/ TC charter may need a review and update (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/xliff/charter.php)
 A. Mary outlined the criteria for updating the charter: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200806/msg00004.html

** Category 2 Issues: General, not tied to 1.2.1 or 2.0 **

6/ Preparing for a vote on Eric's representation guide (ICU Resource Bundle)
 A. Rodolfo to test XLIFF code samples
 B. Rodolfo and Eric to adapt the guide to the current templates

7/ "none of the market leader TenT companies has signed on to the XLIFF standard" (XLIFF ISO)

8/ Semantics on Attributes on Structural Elements (Christian)

9/ Doug proposed discussing the issues raised by Stefan Uhrig
 A. Section 2.5.2
 B. Section 2.5.1
 C. Section 3.2.1
 D. Section 3.2.2
 E. schema is too lax in Stefan's opinion

10/ ITS decorated documents and XLIFF (Bryan)

** Category 3 issues: XLIFF 2.0 **
11/ Asgeir created a robust tracking mechanism (a syndication page) for XLIFF 2.0 ideas (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200804/msg00001.html), (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0/Ideas/MyIdea) - perhaps we should consider this vs. our current tracking page.  Should we consolidate them? Or do they serve unique purposes?
