[w3c sml] 2009-09-28 meeting

From: John Arwe <johnarwe@us.ibm.com>
Date: Mon, 28 Sep 2009 09:44:15 -0400
To: public-sml@w3.org
Message-ID: <OFD20F4103.223690C4-ON8525763F.0049C41C-8525763F.004B7764@us.ibm.com>
Per http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sml/2009Sep/0005.html , 
since no further comments on the review of the XLink 1.1 updates have been 
posted we appear to have consensus that the changes made are correct from 
the SML wg's point of view.  Paul Grosso has responded on behalf of XML 
Core, on whose behalf the issue was raised, indicating their agreement as 
well http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7252#c4 .  Thus we 
appear to be ready for Len to request publication of the updated Note.

I have been privately contacted by a former working group member, alerting 
us to the fact that the Acknowledgements section dropped at least one name 
over time.  After looking at a few dated drafts and comparing those 
sections, I think it's issue of the "current wg members" portion being 
automatically generated, while the subsequent "alumni" portion added for 
LC is hand-hewn (with a race condition thrown in).  I will do my best to 
figure out the list of those names not represented in the Rec level at all 
using the join/leave emails the system sends me as Chair, and provide that 
to the group.  We'll need to make some decisions, however:
1. Does the wg have consensus to make the change by adding names to the 
"alumni" section of Acknowledgements?
(assuming 1 = yes) 2. What mechanism do we use to make that change?  I 
have asked to see if there are others, but I know of two possibilities 
that I believe to be valid: issue an erratum, and go through the process 
of editing the Rec (which I hope would pretty much sail through as 
email-only, given it's a non-normative update).
For now, please indicate your feelings on 1 (should we update the "alumni" 
content) this week.  In the absence of objections, I will assume that the 
working group does want to reflect the names of all contributors over time 
in some form.

Today's meeting is cancelled, as is 2009-10-05.  We *will* meet 2009-10-12 
if any of the following is true:
a. Someone registers an objection to updating the alumni Acks.
b. No response from Len on the XLink Note publication request.


Best Regards, John
