   <scribe> scribe: nigel

This meeting

   nigel: I've put the pulse pages from git onto the agenda in
   lieu of the old activity summaries, since tracker can't any
   longer provide a useful agenda.

   <plh> [9]http://www.w3.org/2010/webperf/board/

      [9] http://www.w3.org/2010/webperf/board/

   plh: This contains issues and pull requests for all of the
   repos in web performance.
   ... I can make one of those for TTWG if you would like it.

   nigel: Yes please?

   <scribe> ACTION: plh Create board for TTWG similar to that for
   webperf [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-449 - Create board for ttwg similar
   to that for webperf [on Philippe Le Hégaret - due 2015-11-19].

   nigel: Any requests for things to discuss today?

   pal: Can we review two issues marked for Review for IMSC 1?
   Based on the TPAC discussion.

   nigel: yes!

   pal: I'd also like to discuss next steps on IMSC 1. Two
   implementors have mentioned that
   ... the ED has had a lot of good explanatory text added so it
   would be good to publish
   ... a heartbeat or another CR, to get that to be the version
   that is on /TR. Can we figure out
   ... a timeline and a process? I'll propose the end of November.

Action Items


   <trackbot> action-425 -- Thierry Michel to Send a prompt/thank
   you to the potential test result contributors for imsc. -- due
   2015-10-01 -- OPEN


     [11] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/425

   tmichel: That was done, and then I updated the implementation
   report and a couple of
   ... days ago I've tidied it a bit more.

   nigel: I restyled it earlier today.

   pal: I was going to send another implementor but I haven't
   heard back so we should
   ... close this action for now.

   close action-425

   <trackbot> Closed action-425.

   nigel: Thank you Thierry!


   <trackbot> action-429 -- Mike Dolan to Draft a wg note for the

     [12] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/429

   mike: No progress to report so far.

   nigel: I think it would be good to create a github repo for the

   mike: I was going to raise that too.

   plh: You need a name.
   ... How should I call it?

   <plh> tt-profile-registry

   mike: Sounds right

   nigel: All happy with that?

   <plh> [13]https://github.com/w3c/tt-profile-registry

     [13] https://github.com/w3c/tt-profile-registry

   plh: I've made it!


   <trackbot> action-442 -- Nigel Megitt to Add an issue to ttml2
   for ensuring plain text accessibility -- due 2015-11-05 -- OPEN


     [14] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/442

   nigel: Nothing to report so far on this.


   <trackbot> action-444 -- Philippe Le Hégaret to Look at writing
   a script to create github issues from tracker issues. -- due
   2015-11-05 -- OPEN


     [15] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/444

   nigel: I'm certain that plh has done this!

   close action-444

   <trackbot> Closed action-444.

   nigel: Thank you Philippe!


   <trackbot> action-446 -- Pierre-Anthony Lemieux to Go through
   every feature and make sure that they take into account any
   dependent features. -- due 2015-11-06 -- OPEN


     [16] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/446

   pal: Still in process.
   ... I'm going to enter this as an issue on github

   nigel: Good plan.
   ... There are two ways to note tasks in github:
   ... 1. Add a 'task' label.
   ... 2. Add to the description a tick box markdown, like "* [ ]
   Do this task"
   ... I'm happy for this to be raised as an issue for tracking

   pal: Okay I'll raise it on github and let's see how that goes.

   nigel: In the past I've used both mechanisms - the label for
   high level actions and the tickboxes for subtasks.

   pal: I like that idea so I'll do that.


   <trackbot> action-448 -- Nigel Megitt to Put timing diagrams
   somewhere they can be reviews -- due 2015-11-06 -- OPEN


     [17] http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/actions/448

   nigel: I still need to do this.
   ... I will try to do that as a PR on TTML2, to see how that
   process works.
   ... If we move to github issues for actions it will be hard for
   me to pull out the actions
   ... list - plh, is there a way to filter issues labelled as
   'task' for example in the board?


   pal: On github there are 2 issues marked as 'review':
   ... They are #68 and #69.

   nigel: Also #81.

   pal: Yes, it might be helpful to have Glenn for that.
   ... #68 and #69 were done before the move to github so there's
   no PR.
   ... but there are changesets.



     [18] https://github.com/w3c/imsc/commit/c7eefbe6831c185fa92ae395b31181a601634152

   pal: There's an action on Glenn to provide a list of simple and
   complex scripts.
   ... I've made a start but it may not be complete.

   nigel: Do we need Glenn to complete that action before we can
   close this?

   pal: I've specified it conservatively as 'if it is not simple
   then it's complex' and listed the
   ... simple scripts.
   ... Being Latin, Hebrew, Cyrillic and Greek.

   nigel: There are a small number of variant glyphs in Hebrew.

   pal: My understanding is that it's simple enough to consider as
   ... It would be good to have Glenn's comprehensive pass at this
   before we publish the
   ... next iteration.

   nigel: So we do need that before we close the issue.



     [19] https://rawgit.com/w3c/imsc1/master/spec/ttml-ww-profiles.html

   pal: This has the changes in it. It's linked from the imsc main
   page on github.
   ... Section 9.5 defines 'glyph', adds a Note, and the table has
   two performance values

   nigel: The words 'otherwise' aren't easy to understand - it's
   not clear what they relate to.

   pal: Okay I'll look at ways to address that.

   nigel: You could write out all the words, or maybe there's a
   way to format it so it's clear.

   pal: And the list of scripts is in Appendix H.

   nigel: I might propose a tweak to the wording in H - leave it
   for now though.
   ... Can we close the issues for now and I'll deal with the
   editorial points in a next pass?
   ... I think the editorial points are important here for
   ... However I agree that the substantive points are dealt with.

   pal: If you're not happy please propose alternate text on #68
   and #69.

   nigel: Okay I will!
   ... Should we look at #81?


     [20] https://github.com/w3c/imsc/issues/81

   pal: Glenn isn't happy that cellResolution cannot be specified
   on root. This goes back to CFF-TT.
   ... My proposal is not to fix this, unless there's a very
   strong reason to. It looks like
   ... it's just for elegance or symmetry, but is not a

   nigel: We should also ask what is the implication of permitting

   pal: Well this isn't broken so we should resist any changes
   that would impact implementors.
   ... There's nothing that needs to be done that cannot be done
   unless this change is made.

   nigel: Please could you summarise that position on the issue?

   pal: Yes I will do that.

   nigel: The last thing to cover is a new CR version of IMSC1.

   pal: Yes.

   nigel: We have to resolve the remaining issues that need to be
   resolved and update
   ... the dates in the SOTD.

   pal: I think we can do that in the next 2 weeks.

   tmichel: We make a snapshot and request another CR.

   nigel: So we need a resolution based on a particular snapshot.

   pal: So we can set a target for a spec that has all issues

   nigel: Yes, then when we have done that then we can prepare a
   snapshot with an updated
   ... SOTD and CR exit criteria.

   pal: I need to prepare a list of changes and then we can review
   for how substantive they are.


     [21] http://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#substantive-change

   pal: I will focus on that. New features and conformance

   nigel: There are quite a few issues right now - what's your

   pal: My intent is to resolve them all so that we have a clean
   slate. Either fix, wontfix, or defer to IMSC 2.
   ... Maybe next week I can put together a proposed plan.
   ... I'm going to remove the "for review" label on it that made
   me reconsider it so I need to go back to him and figure that
   one out.

Unicode liaison

   nigel: Our ticket on Unicode has been updated:


     [22] http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/8915

   nigel: It has been moved from milestone 29 to "upcoming". I
   don't know what that means!
   ... I think we have no more topics for today, so let's close
   the meeting 2 minutes early!
   ... Thanks everyone [adjourns meeting]
