Subject: RE: [xliff] Minimum set of container elements for XLIFF 2.0
Last year I submitted a schema plus a descriptive PDF for review with the minimum required elements. The PDF and the schema were approved by the TC as starting point and the draft currently in SVN is based on that work.
One of the goals for XLIFF 2.0 is “simplify”. The current draft emphasizes that by not including elements that don’t provide useful content.
Yves’ request for grouping was added to the wiki and we never discussed it due to lack of time for technical work during our regular meetings. If it is approved for implementing, the corresponding element set will be added to the specification.
Your brand new proposal , (B34) “Minimum set of container elements”, was not discussed yet by the TC. Notice that it contradicts what we managed to minimally discuss and approve before as starting point.
I may be wrong, but I think it would be appropriate to mention a feature request and explain the reasoning behind it in a TC meeting before adding it to the wiki. We have items in the wiki that are not moving forward and we must start cleaning the list of features. It’s about time we stop adding feature requests and concentrate our efforts working on approved stuff. If we keep adding features, we will not be able to complete the specification in a reasonable time.
