RESOLUTION: Minutes approved

Next face to face

John: still in Austin; will request beginning of the week

Action Items

review of outstanding action items

Transition meeting results

John: we have approval to proceed to CR
... we have to publish the CR draft
... estimated date Dec 1

<johnarwe_> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/chairs/2008OctDec/0090.html

<johnarwe_> above is the URI for the transition request

<johnarwe_> needed for CR draft: 4633 (using ns uris agreed to during f2f), any bugs the wg says we need, the contents of the status section from the Transition Request, (optional but nice) ns policy document (for which an action item already exists)

<johnarwe_> so kumar will try to have all this done by 11/18 for review in wg next week.

<johnarwe_> MSM: suggest giving heads-up to webmaster to ensure 12/1 is feasible, kumar will handle.

<ginny__> John: editors should keep a list of all bugs fixes for each draft

<ginny__> ... we were asked to link CR draft to disposition of comments document, like the one attached to the Transition Request email.

Bug 6224

<johnarwe_> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=6224

Len: #7 in bug should be done prior to CR

members agreed

Len: #14 should also be done prior to CR

Discussion of #7

Len: 6 and 7 are related

<johnarwe_> XPath 1.0 says...

<johnarwe_> 3.2 Function Calls

<johnarwe_> A FunctionCall expression is evaluated by using the FunctionName to identify a function in the expression evaluation context function library, evaluating each of the Arguments, converting each argument to the type required by the function, and finally calling the function, passing it the converted arguments. It is an error if the number of arguments is wrong or if an argument cannot be converted to the required type. The result of the FunctionCall expression

<johnarwe_> An argument is converted to type string as if by calling the string function. An argument is converted to type number as if by calling the number function. An argument is converted to type boolean as if by calling the boolean function. An argument that is not of type node-set cannot be converted to a node-set.

<johnarwe_> [16] FunctionCall ::= FunctionName '(' ( Argument ( ',' Argument )* )? ')'

<johnarwe_> [17] Argument ::= Expr

RESOLUTION: changes in [6] should be made
... changes in [7] in bug should be made
... changes in [14] are approved
... section [10] is ok as proposed
... leave bug as editorial; no further review needed

Bug 5492

Editors have not figured out how to fix this.

MSM requests another week to possibly fix this.

Test Cases

John: think about format of implementation report
... we need to create list of test case changes that we decided in previous meetings
... then we need to decide how to make these changes (ourselves, ask Cosmos team, ...)

<johnarwe_> Len wonders if web request was done/fixed on the xml link from our specs

<Kumar> no. I have not checked in the fix yet. It is a bug in one of the build xsl
