Gentle DAWGs,

The Full Text Task Force (a joint task force of the XML Query WG and 
the XSL WG) has completed processing all of the comments received 
during, and after, the Last Call comment period (see 
http://www.w3.org/News/2007#item103) and the Working Groups 
themselves have voted to progress the resulting XQuery and XPath Full 
Text 1.0 spec to Candidate Recommendation.

The DAWG is cited as a WG with potential interest in this 
specification.  I am writing this message to you by way of informing 
you of changes that have been made to the Full Text specification 
since publication of the Last Call Working Draft.  You can find a 
detailed log of all such changes at 
but a brief summary might be helpful to you.

* We clarified the process of tokenization.

* We significantly re-organized some normative material to associate 
related text more closely.

* We repositioned a prolog extension to the first part of the XQuery 
prolog from the second part.

* We made many editorial changes in improvement of the text, both for 
comprehension and to remove ambiguities.

* We identified Features at Risk and drafted a Conformance clause.

* We parsed all code used for examples and for the functions 
describing the formal semantics of the language, correcting syntax 
errors as they were found.  Similarly, we made a few revisions to the 
Full Text XQueryX schemas and stylesheet, bot for clarity and for correctness.

We do not believe that any of those changes are likely to invalidate 
the review of any group or individual, but we want to offer you the 
opportunity to confirm or deny that for your group.

We have planned a Transition Call on Monday, 2008-04-28 at 14:00 
Zakim time, and would appreciate a response as early on that day as possible.

Hope this helps,
