Subject: Draft: XLIFF TC Path in 2010

This is what I perceive to be our path to start the new year. Let's consider this a starting point for discussion. All are encouraged to share opinions and ideas.

XLIFF 1.2.1 Errata
  1 Rodolfo contact Mary and ask for an SVN account for the TC, so he can upload his files 
     and share them with the rest of the TC.
  2 Rodolfo will enlist helpers to complete OASIS requirements
  3 Doug provided the updated schemas (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200912/msg00007.html), 
     that follow Christian's request for improved XLIFF elements to be defined by means of types. 
    - Several TC members tested the updated XLIFF 1.2.1 schemas and reported no substantive changes. 
    - Call for TC to discuss as needed, then vote to include (or not) these schemas in XLIFF 1.2.1 errata
  4 Files posted too appropriate place, then Bryan and Rodolfo (and anyone else who wants to participate) 
     will conduct a check-list to ensure all requirements are met
  5 Bryan will conduct a ballot for confirmation that the TC agrees no substantive change is 
     caused by errata changes (must pass with Full TC Majority)
  6 Rodolfo/Bryan/Mary submit proposed corrections for 15-day public review
  7 (assuming no game-changing comments) Bryan will conduct a ballot to confirm proposed changes as 
    approved errata (requires Full TC Majority)

1 Finish our work regarding text elements in XLIFF 2.0 
 1.1 Scope section:
  1.1.1 Finish items (3.1.2, 3.1.5, 3.1.6)
  1.1.2 Bryan will assign action based on each documented resolution
 (for example: 3.1.3, (1) Rodolfo adds a note to section 2.5 explaining that extension points are intended 
 for providing support for internal tool processing, not for solving XLIFF deficiencies.)
 1.2 Requirements section:
  1.2.1 Validate that each of these are requirements
  1.2.2 Identify any missing requirements
  1.2.3 Create code examples to show resolution for each requirement
  1.2.4 Turn the examples into words for the specification
  1.2.5 Turn the examples into code for the schemas
(now for our "where do we go from here moment")
2. Decide how to go forward with remaining (non-text) parts of XLIFF 2.0 
  2.1 Revisit Feature Tracking (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0/FeatureTracking)
  2.2 Revisit XLIFF 2.0 Dashboard (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0)
3. Write a new Conformance Clause
4. Update the charter

  1.3 SVG

            b) withdraw the submission, 
            c) submit an amended specification
