Attendance: David F., Bryan, Soroush, Phil, Lucía, Felix, Yves, Tom.
dF: we have quorum.
Bryan moves to approve meeting minutes for 21-March, 2017
Tom: I second.
B: meeting minutes approved.
dF: [shares his screen and explaining the issues XLIFF-21-46 that were received as csprd02 comments]. The filter shows that the issues have been addressed. [The “comment resolution log” page is
also showed and the spreadsheet used to track all the issues and their resolution].
We had one ballot and a few calls for dissent. We are not seeking any further approvals, as everything has been resolved by last week.
This week we made typographical fixes mostly, but also caught some artifacts errors due to croschecking with examples, but no conetntious points in that. The email and SVN traffic was also recorded
on JIRA issues that we use for disposal tracking.
On the CTR update, we decided to withdraw the module [one of the CFD held between meetings]. Therefore some issues that were addressing CTR are no longer relevant, now marked as "Superseded" rather
than "ready-for-vote", but two of them are still relevant for the future module in XLIFF 2.2.
We can now address membership questions on the resolutions taken or how these were applied.
B: No questions from me.
F: I created a complex examples, that was a long standing AI, I copy-pasted some other ITS samples and combined them. In crosschecks I found validation issues as well as artifact issues, I did not
create any new validation rules but fixed a few. This was posted to the list and recorded on issues.
dF: that was great, it helped to see some unforeseen issues that we would otherwise have not uncovered and that would have sent us for another PR for sure. So thanks for sacrificing your Saturday,
dF: I move that the TC approve XLIFF Version 2.1 the 3rd working draft from 04 April 2017 [labelled in advance as Committee Specification Draft 03 / Public Review Draft 03]
https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/browse/wsvn/xliff/trunk/xliff-21/xliff-core-v2.1-csprd03.html *.pdf, and *.xml and all associated artifacts at
https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/svn/xliff/trunk/xliff-21/schemas/ [Revision 890] as a Committee Specification Draft, designating the html version of the specification as authoritative, and that the TC further approve releasing the Committee
Specification Draft for a 15 days public review and direct the TC officers to work with OASIS TC Administration on all tasks required to carry out publishing of the above approved drafts.
B: I second.
Yes: Felix, Lucía, Phil, Bryan, Soroush, Yves, Tom, David F.
dF: Motion approved unanimously.
Congratulations we have the 3rd public review draft.
III. SOU readiness
dF: The SOU questionnair is in good shape. But it will need some reviewing to apply the new changes in csprd03.
L: I will do the reviewing before next meeting. I will send an email to notify you about it.
dF: It will be launched once the 3rd public review is over and we have an official committee specification, no longer a draft. The other thing is to have implementations.
Y: I do not know if I will have time to do the implementations.
B: I do not know if I will have time either.
dF: You still have a month time, and the full support is not required. We just need to have advanced validation support and the more ITS categories support the better.
F: what does support mean in terms of processing (merging, extracting…)?
dF: that is defined that in the questionnaire, we have categories where you have to define your type of processor. Basically the more agent types you check the more "yes" answers will be expected
to show support. But it's OK to fill it just for just one agent type and the features you have.
dF: From the OASIS procedural point of view, I think we need three implementations and at least one OASIS member among the implementers. OASIS doesn't officially prescribe what the coverage must
be. But not having coverage would not be a good news as we would basically not know if the features work. So tool implementers, please consider it. Ideally we'd like to have two implementers for each fetaure but at least 1 to see how it works
B: 2 might be a stretch, but we'll see what can be done..
IV. Sub Committee Report (0:45 - 0:55)
dF: Both committees [XLIFF and XLIFF OMOS] agreed to skip Barcelona and organize the next symposium in Silicon Valley in October 31/November 1st, please save the date. I will make the call for this
symposium this week or next week.
Sister committee OMOS
Y: We are working on JLIFF, there was a lot of activity on github on the schema. And there was some activity on the TBX mapping side.
dF: There was some progress but tbx is under revision on ISO, so further progress is on hold.
dF: There will be a JIAMCATT event in the Hague in May. It is really influential network of organizations (gvernemnt, international and extrateritorial, big UN agencies, European Comission, European
Council etc.) with translation needs. Olaf-Michael Stefanov, Alan Melby and myself, we are leading the standardisation interest groupp. We have placed XLIFF 2 as a topic in the plenary agenda this year. We will position XLIFF as bitext format for non-technical
/ decision making audience. It is good for XLIFF adoption. We will also have a half day workshop to exchange information on XLIFF and other standards.
[Even the so called public webpage of JIAMCATT can be only accessed with an ECAS login
https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/fpfis/wikis/display/JIAMCATT/04_3_Annual_2017 Further interaction reuires organizational registrations, commercial organizations are not admissible participants however]
IV. New business:
dF: There will be no new items to discuss by next meeting so I move to skip it. We can discuss things via the mailing list. Lucía will send the SOU questionnaire update and impelementers can update
us on their progress as well..
B: Ok, so our next meeting will be the on 2nd May. The csprd03 review will have passed by then.
dF: sure we can address that on the mailing list before the meeting on 2nd, perhaps make first steps for the cs01 special majority vote.
L: Will we have a P&L meeting today?
Df: Not today, as we already adressed the questionnaire, promotion and liaisons, but we will have it in the next meeting and we should talk about the symposium CFP.
B: Thank you, meeting adjourned.
