Lucia and Dimitra announce the first XLIFF International Symposium TC to determine what we can do to help: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201002/msg00004.html Bryan: Maybe changing name to "conference" would draw more people. Lucia: Before the LRC conference, so maybe a issue with mixing "conference". Maybe "symposium" good enough for a start. Dimitra: It's smaller than the LRC conference, we just need to find a good way to reflect that. Bryan: Agrees that "symposium" is fine (and better than "workshop") Lot of positive feedback for supporting the gathering from the TC. Lucia: Email will be sent to the people involved Then create the Web page, and announce it. Bryan: Reminder: the symposium is in September (just before LRC conference) Lucia: Scentific committee: So far Bryan, Yves, One Professor from University of Salamanca. Rodolfo cannot commit so far. David: I volunteer too. We went through the list of topics. Only small reshuffling and cleaning. 2. Dimitra released XLIFF questionnaire results http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201002/msg00001.html Bryan: XLIFF questionnaire. Dimitra: Some answer from attendee to previous conference. Wrote a summary. Will post it if accepted. Important to look at comments: simplification is needed; some bad parsers; Some presentation on XLIFF meta-data later this year (will use the result of the questionnaire). List of meta-data not available but needed. Does the table make sense? Bryan: We started to have discussion on the metadata/questionnaire. Any more feedback on questionnaire? None. 3. Dimitra began formal work on XLIFF metadata recommendations for XLIFF 2.0 - Bryan and David have been given preliminary information. Bryan: Any comments on that work? Christian: Could we see the table? Dimitra: Sure, but very preliminary. Lucia: Question: is there any tools that can use the finished XLIFF? E.g. for new project. Like re-using extra data stored there. David: interchange format, so mostly that only. Storage is done elsewhere. XLIFF is just temporary medium. Bryan: same for my company: just interchange. But some use XLIFF as storage, TM and more. Yves: ICU uses it for resource, Adobe Flash (I think) can use it also as resource. David: Andrzej Zydron may have more info on additional usage. 4. Yves announced the Felix has a new version of his XLIFF/ITS tool available: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201002/msg00026.html Bryan: See links to ITS2XLIFF (and back) in that email. Seems to work fine. Felix shared his XSLT template. Looks good and useful. 4/ LISA/OSCAR proposal to re-establish a partnership in developing common text markup is accepted by the XLIFF TC. Bryan to outline OASIS required next steps. Bryan: Had an action item to understand better the subcommittee process. David: confirm that Milan would join such subcommittee Bryan: Resolution of creating the subcommittee must be minuted and show names of chair, and statement of purpose. Christian proposed to derive the statement from the wiki. We need a chair (Bryan has not enough time) Yves: Volunteer to chair if no-one else wants the job. David: Milan will participate. I can help for the statement of purpose. Bryan: We need to create the committee. I move that we create a subcommittee for the purpose of developing common text markup with input from OSCAR. Magnus second it. David: We have already such resolution no? So the original goals are very specific (based on the wiki). Reference to previous resolution: "... Bryan and David proposed to have a ballot for endorsing the idea of working together with OSCAR in a subcommittee dedicated to work on inline markup for XLIFF and TMX based on the requirements gathered by the TC so far. The ballot passed unanimously." In http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201002/msg00002.html Bryan: Ok. David: We can just named the chair. Last time the purpose was stated. Bryan: Resolution: done, Name of subcommittee: ? David: Maybe we can add name in next meeting. Bryan: Name is important otherwise hard to physically create it. David: Inline Markup subcommittee Yves: Sounds fine. Bryan: Sound fine. But is it enough? Include also e.g. how source/target are linked. Doug: Inline is in the sense of source text. Bryan: Let's do this in email thread. David: Maybe we can simply vote on the chair? Magnus: I support this (and have to leave) Bryan: Vote in favor to Yves chairing the "inline" subcommittee. Dimitra, Lucia, Doug, Magnus, David, Bryan, Yves, Asgeir: yes. No dissent. 9/ New Business Bryan: any new business? None. End of meeting.
