Subject: [xri-editors] Candidate
for Committee Draft release
I’ve attached a candidate for the committee draft
release. Turn revision marks on to see the changes.
Summary of changes:
New document name and new document identifier –
Converted front matter to committee draft status. NOTE: We need to
provide a link to the document errata. I chose to link to the TC home page,
where we can put a link to errata. This indirection avoids a messy URI that
depends on OASIS internals, like http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/4322/wd-xri-specification-RC2.pdf.
If people are ok with this, we need to create an empty errata document and add
a link to the TC’s main page.
There were TODOs in the text to add a reference to the XRI Primer and
the XRI Metadata Spec. Because there are no documents to reference, I just
removed the TODOs. When those specs are complete, we should produce errata on
the Syntax/Resolution spec that clarify those references.
Spelling corrections throughout
Corrected substantive typo in 126.96.36.199
Changed “Identifier Authority Descriptor” to “XRI
Changed “NextAuthority” to “XRIAuthority”
Added normative text in 3.2.6 about ignoring annotations during
Changed non-normative text in 3.2.7 for clarity based on feedback from SourceForge
Note that I did not change appendix C (I think the current
text is good enough).
IMPORTANT: I did not proof section 3 to see if there were
changes other than simple search and replace associated with the change from
“Identifier Authority Descriptor” to “XRI Descriptor”
and from “NextAuthority” to “XRIAuthority”. I plan to
read that section tonight, but at least one other person should do the same.
Comments are welcome.
