John and other interested ones,

I spent quite some time to get the resolutions and action items out of the 
minutes of the ftf and previous call. I also spent more time then expected 
(several hours) to convert Steven's version of the differences between 
XForms 1.1 and XForms 1.0 and I'm now near a first pass in converting it 
to Spec XML. But the structure/layout is not yet XForms spec worthy. I 
think I need definitly some hours to make it something that can be used to 
put in our spec. I also have the examples for read-only that need to be 
made. If these have greater priority then the schema I won't be able to do 
any schema related work next week, because I think I have more then one 
day work left for the action items I previously mentioned. 

I don't know if Charlie or MarkB can give us a status of the current 
modularized version of the XForms schema, but if this is nearly done, I 
would prefer working on that, otherwise we will just throw away the work 
Charlie and MarkB put into that.

ACTION NEEDED (Charlie, Nick, Leigh): XForms 1.1 schema update







We had hoped to get some time on this during the face to face meeting, but 
the last call issues proved too time consuming (though I would 
characterize our progress as outstanding). 

This still leaves us in a precarious position of needing to have the spec 
ready for CR transition before the publication moratorium that will 
precede the tech plenary.  I need you, Charlie, Nick and Leigh, to help 
out by updating the XForms 1.1 schema. 

The idea is that we need 

1) big update for submission 
2) big update for actions (e.g. additions to insert, delete, toggle, 
setfocus, and remove actions we don't have like close, duplicate, 
destroy). 
3) small update for UI (e.g. output element) 
4) small update on model (e.g. version) and instance (e.g. src and 
resource) 
5) Make sure schema reflects definition of "core form controls" 
6) Many new datatypes in Section 5 (empties and email and card-number) 

Starting tomorrow, I need you guys to please please please begin 
exchanging some email on the list above to divide up the tasks and get 
this done.  We need to have an idea of how long it will take given the 
"one day a week" commitment you and your organization made.  I would 
recommend one person to take submission, one to take actions, and a third 
to do the rest. 

The files begin with 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/2007/XForms-11-Schema.xsd, but there are 
several other files. 

To make this as easy as possible, here are the files, as far as I can see.
