II XLIFF 2.0 (0:10 - 0:45)
A. Public review underway (0:10 - 0:30)
    1. Announced by XLIFF Admin https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201304/msg00123.html
    2. Public review page: https://www.oasis-open.org/news/announcements/30-day-public-review-for-xliff-v2-0
       - The public review starts 00:00 GMT on 29 April 2013 and ends 23:59 GMT on 29 May 2013.
       - Comments (including those from TC) should be made on comment list
The public review has started. One comment so far, from Bryan. David F and Tom have done a lot of work making sure the schema is in place. The public review will take place from 29 April to 29 May. The comments should be made to the comment list which is publically available. TC members should also put their comments there.
    3. Comments will be tracked on the wiki: let's review the procedure for handling comments
There has been a new wiki page created and this will be used for tracking comments. Bryan showed this to the TC.
Bryan mentioned the issue when a TC member in another TC lobbied for a no vote. He hopes that will not happen with us. The committee draft standard has been agreed unanimously so someone lobbying against is unlikely.
Bryan mentioned that we are able to do as many loops as we want with public drafts. Each committee draft needs to be followed by a public review. After the first 30 day review the public reviews can be 15 days. After we are happy with the draft we vote on a committee specification.
The final step is the OASIS vote. We need to get at least 25% of eligible members vote. If more than 25% vote against the standard fails. If it is unanimous and we achieve the minimum participation we automatically become an OASIS standard.

B. Conformance clause/criteria: review ours to ensure coverage (0:30 - 0:40)
Bryan outline the process on the conformance clause/ criteria. Information on this process can be found here:
Tom mentioned that the case where a TC member lobbied for a no vote was very different to our situation. He said this standard was more a good practise guideline than the standard. The problem with the person lobbying was not the point they were making but their timing.
III XLIFF 2.X? 3.0? (0:40 - 0:50)
    1. Freeze on Feature Tracking wiki? Or queue proposed post 2.0 features there?
    1. Do we have an official path for promoting custom namespace to supported core/module post XLIFF 2.0?
Bryan said that we do not want to stop new ideas and suggestions being made so we need to think about how we deal with 3.0 and other features.
Bryan said the tracking mechanism worked well and he will try and create a feature tracking page for 3.0 One issue will be whether features should 2.x or 3.0.

IV Charter (Bryan to update site)
Bryan will look through minutes and make updates to charter.

V Sub Committee Reports (0:50 - )
David is not present so there is no P&L subcommittee after this. Bryan highlighted the work the P&L subcommittee did such as XLIFF Symposium and getting the word out about the public review.
There will be a face to face meeting in London this June.

IV Current Business

V New Business
Bryan asked whether anyone had new business items
