Subject: [xliff] TC Teleconference - Summary

XLIFF TC Teleconference - Summary
Date:  Tuesday, 20 July 2010
Time:  11:00am - 12:00pm ET

=== 1/ Roll call

Present: Asgeir, Bryan, Yves, Christian, Lucia, Dimitra, David, Doug, Arle
Regrets: Rodolfo

=== 2/ Approve Tuesday, 1 June 2010 meeting minutes:

Asgeir moves to approve minutes.
Bryan seconds.
No objections

Bryan: Discussion for conformance moved after v2 discussion. Is it ok?
David: May be needed during the work on features to insure we can enforce the features.
Bryan: OK for concurrent work then.

=== 3.1. Updates on the 1st International XLIFF Symposium

Dimitra: program finalized. Maybe 15mn to discuss it?
David: second.
Asgeir, Christian, Bryan, Yves: sounds fine.

David presents the program...
One day, very full, dominant topic: "minimal & modular"
Panels and presentation, several tracks too.

ACTION ITEM: Bryan to look at the possibility to do an OASIS Webinar for one of the panel.

=== 3.2. Possible to get more work done by scheduling face-to-face meetings
(Lucia created a poll http://www.doodle.com/ra63ue77nevp976a )

ACTION ITEM: All to visit http://www.doodle.com/ra63ue77nevp976a and see where you would be possibly present.
For more dates: ask Lucia to modify the poll.

=== 3.3 Move our spec into Docbook (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201007/msg00009.html)?

Authoring in DocBook will allow more controlled output.
DITA has also a toolkit, but not quite ready.
Pros: Working from DocBook would ensure proper OASIS-official output.
Cons: Editors need DocBook DTD. Rodolfo is ok with that.

Bryan: propose to adopt this approach.
Yves: think it's a good idea
Doug: same but wonder about the availability of editing tools.
Bryan: most commercial tool would be ok, less sure for open-source, but SERNA Has support (http://www.syntext.com/products/serna/docbook-xml-format-support/)
See also: http://wiki.docbook.org/topic/DocBookPublishingTools
Don't know exactly the sub-set allowed
Asgeir: good move, presentation guide was done in DocBook. But having the source under version control is important too.
Bryan: yes

=== 4/ XLIFF Inline text SC report

Yves: going through the requirements, will try to work by email a bit too.
Arle: working on getting OSCAR feedback

=== OpenTM2-related question from Arle

Arle: XLIFF planned as the portability layer between Joomla and OpenTM2. But some metadata "is missing" apparently.
Christian:  From my understanding, we already now have mechanisms (extension points) in XLIFF that would allow additional meta data to be accommodated.
David: There are plans to form a Metadata SC, so this would be useful input.
Arle: So we'll try to work through the TC for this.
David: maybe related to DITA as well.
Doug: for our CMS we use the XLIFF tool element (with extended namespace).
Arle: I think they talk about a more general set of metadata that can be shared.
Bryan: working with Drupal as well, maybe some common part too.

=== 7/ XLIFF 2.0

Bryan: Second meeting in August is the DEADLINE for Features
Maybe we can extend one week since we have missed one meeting.
David: maybe after the symposium would be better.
Bryan: Possibly. I'll go back to decision to see if we need formal change.

ACTION ITEM: Bryan to check on deadline.

Need to consolidate the feature set:
ACTION ITEM: All to look at http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0 and see if any need to be moved to http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0/FeatureTracking

Then we can go through the items and decide.
If we have few v2 features we may want to go there instead of working on 1.2 errata.

Dimitra: if I have some changes to propose (rather than feature) how should I enter that?
Bryan: ok to put this in the feature tracking page

- meeting adjourned
