 Dear Rotan Hanrahan ,

The Mobile Web Initiative Device Description Working Group has reviewed
the comments you sent [1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the Device
Description Repository Simple API published on 4 Apr 2008. Thank you for
having taken the time to review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below, and has
been implemented in the new version of the document available at:

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at
public-ddwg-comments@w3.org if you agree with it or not before 24 May
2008. In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific
solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a
consensus cannot be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to raise a

Your comment on Get Implementation Version public String
> Regarding the getAPIVersion() method, described here:
> Version
> The definition says:
> "Returns information about the implementation of the API including the
> current version."
> Our development team wish to know if this information is intended to
> be
> machine readable. In the absence of a statement to this effect, the
> only
> valid interpretation is that the returned String is intended to be
> read
> by a human, presumably for diagnostics purposes.
> Proposed amendment:
> The team also notes that in addition to getting diagnostic information
> about the API implemented by an instance, it may also be of benefit to
> get a machine-readable indication of the API to which the
> implementation
> claims conformance. The proposal is to add a method:
>   Public String getAPINamespace();
> In the case of this API, the returned value would be:
>   "http://www.w3.org/TR/DDR-Simple-API/"
> On behalf of MobileAware Ltd, Development Team,

Working Group Resolution (LC-1948):
The DDWG has resolved to change the name of getAPIVersion to
getImplementationVersion and include an explanation mentioning the use in
diagnostics across all languages.
