=== DITA:
CL talked about the latest DITA-Translation SC meeting. They are three main goals for now:
- Clarification of how xml:lang works. Someone from DITA may contact RI on this.
- Clarification of the relationship between its:transte and dita:translate attributes, for example with regard to precedence,
default values, etc. Someone from DITA may contact FS on this.
- How to provide support for Ruby: FS and RI may be contacted for this as well.
The deadline for the next DITA version is very soon and those questions need to be resolved quickly.
AZ added that one important aspect of the DITA SC work was the identification of the 'inline' elements.

=== Outcome of the face-to-face meeting in Mandelieu:
Report is here: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-its/2006JanMar/0258.html
YS went through some of the proposal. From a prossecing viewpoint he is a bit concerned that the distinction between 'mapping' and
'adding' generate the need for a new mechanism different from the old one. He'll post email on that topic.
CL noted that all were invited to answer FS' email with a 'agree' or 'need discussion' on each proposal.
--> Action item by friday

=== Next face-to-face:
YS said the possible next face-to-face could be in Apr-18,19,20 (possibly in Oxford).
AZ noted that this was the week of the LISA conference in Shangai and he is presenting some workshop there.

=== Comments on Richard's notes on the specification document
Most people had not had the time to read them yet.
--> Action item for next time

=== Modularization
YS is working on XHTML 1.1
CL had some exchanges with DITA
YS posted some first draft for DocBook. Norm Walsh kindly answered and say he would try to find the time to look at it from the
RELAX NG viewpoint.
YS noted there were some exchange on OpenDocument with Jean-Christoph (OmegaT), Felix and IBM. We are waiting for Damian input as

=== Techniques
Brief discussion.
CL noted that one additional category of audience may be the people developing ITS processors.

=== TBX-Link and ITS terminology datacat
AZ noted that TBX-Link was very close to ITS term datacat.
YS and all agreed that both must be harmonized
CL noted that it would be good to make sure this is addressed through the bug report so it does fall off the radar. There is already
some comments, see: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=2877
Some emails were excahnged between Felix and Alan Melby on this topic too. Would be good to have this on public access (bug
