Hi Chris, 

Could you let me know please if there is any progress on the allocation 
request for the XForms shortnames (included again below for convenience).

Tomorrow is the Forms WG telecon, and I need to be able to say what's 
happening here as it affects our ability to complete an action item.

Thanks,

Re: Short names





P.S. Since Steven is out, could you actually do whatever a team contact 
would do to make these names take the meanings defined?

I am guessing that it's just a request to the webmaster, but since that 
seems slightly different than approving the names, I thought it best to 
ask since we need the names to go live so that Leigh Klotz can send out 
the newsletter containing the names.

Short names







Hi Chris, 

In accordance with the HCG call discussion today, would you please approve 
the following: 

xforms10 - The latest edition of the XForms 1.0 recommendation (currently 
the third edition) 

xforms11 - The latest edition of XForms 1.1, regardless of status 
(currently candidate recommendation) 

xforms1 - The latest edition of XForms 1.x, regardless of status 
(currently XForms 1.1 candidate recommendation) 

xforms - The latest recommendation (currently XForms 1.0 third edition). 

I don't know whether there is any script change or file reorganization 
needed to make these four names happen, but it should be noted that right 
now the names xforms and xforms11 point to the right things, so only the 
new names being requested are xforms10 and xforms1. 

Reasonably early next year, we will need xforms12, xforms20 and xforms2, 
but right now we don't have FPWDs for those, so there is no need to create 
those yet. 

Thanks,
