Subject: [xliff] Welcome back Yves! A summary of where we are (RE: XLIFF
This is great news. I will cc the list on my reply because I
am going to update you on our current status - and the members might want to
correct, or add to my summary.
We meet on the first and third Tuesday each month at 11am US
Eastern time (9am your time - in the Rockies - I think).
You rejoin the TC at an opportune and exciting time. We
are in some churn about finishing our bug fixes to XLIFF 1.2.1 and taking it as
far as Public Review, then switching to focus fully on XLIFF 2.0.
To give you a quick primer on where we stand, here are the *hot*
issues, as I see them (in no particular order).
- XLIFF 1.2.1 Schemas are done; XLIFF 1.2.1 Spec is done (I
think Rodolfo uploaded a spec today hooray!); XLIFF representation guides need
to be put into the latest templates. All of this will be completed shortly, in
proper OASIS templates and URLs. Then we will pass (or not pass) XLIFF 1.2.1 as
a Committee Draft, and get it moving toward public review. Rodolfo is hard at
work on this
- We are at a pretty important decision point where we will define
an important point "XLIFF 2.0 will be complete when _______"
There are two camps for filling in the blank
1. Set a calendar goal. All items that are complete and
approved by the
TC make it into XLIFF 2.0 - All others
need to wait for the "next train," i.e., XLIFF 2.X or XLIFF 3.
Special care needs to be taken to define
doneness and ensure no dependency
issues between items. And "XLIFF 2.0
is complete on set date of *Month/Day/Year*"
2. Define a finite set of XLIFF 2.0 items. Set a cutoff date for
The list of accepted items becomes our
And "XLIFF 2.0 is complete when items 1
through X are finished"
(some in this camp see our current set of goals,
as is, as that finite list)
- We have an important discussion around unifying our XLIFF inline element(s)
with TMX's new proposed method (you are familiar with these details)
- We are updating the charter
- We have an initiative to promote XLIFF
Having your familiar voice back on our call will be immensely
beneficial for XLIFF and the localization community.

Hi Bryan, Tony,
Just a note to let
you know that I’ve re-joined OASIS (as affiliate member)
and that I’ve also re-joined
the XLIFF TC :)
Could you let me
know when are the teleconferences? (so I can
start to plan).
It seems to be on
Tuesdays at 15pm UTC, but what is the frequency?
