Message-Id: <6.0.0.22.2.20060914155425.02fbda38@mailserv.esat.kuleuven.be>

Hi,

Attached you will find a new draft.

Below is a list of most of the changes:

* 'dc:creator' now has a note saying that a constant will be added;
* 'dc:rights' now has a note saying that a constant (with a pointer to the 
license) will be added;
* 'date' now says that it was chosen over 'dc:date' because of the data type;
* 'status' now says we will use the values from the Conformance Test 
Process For WCAG 2.0 , but we can obviously discuss this on the next telecon;
* 'version' now has a note saying that a constant ($version of CVS 
numbering will be used, and the element is now required;
* 'source' will not be used [1];
* 'dc:contributor' will not be used [1];

* 'technicalSpec/@xlink:href' now has 6 examples to clarify what should go 
in that attribute;
* 'specReference/@xlink:href' now has 4 examples to clarify what should go 
in that attribute;
* 'testElements' now says that we will drop it if it turns out to drain too 
many resources;
* a section on baselines has been added;

* 'description' now says it was chosen over 'dc:description' because of the 
data type;
* 'requiredTests' will not be used [1];
* 'file/@xlink:href' now has examples to clarify what should go in that 
attribute;
* in 'httpRequest' the attributes enctype and mediatype were removed 
(header elements could cover the same function);
* in 'httpRequest', the attribute 'method' (for specifying the HTTP method) 
was added;

* the 'rule' element now has an optional 'techniques' element that enables 
us to point of WCAG 2.0 techniques and/or failures;
* 'functionalOutcome' will not be used;
* 'techComment' now has an example;

* there is now a chapter on the extensibility mechanisms;
* there is now a chapter on the "Rulesets XML";
* there is now a chapter describing the ID/naming convention for the test 
cases (http://www.w3.org/2006/09/05-tsdtf-minutes).


Some other issues:
* I have assumed that we wanted to make 'version' required.
* Do we want to remove 'preconditions' or is there a use case for it?
* I have not yet added the EARL location pointers.


Please send your comments on this document at least 2 hours before the next 
teleconference.



[1] When I write that element x will not be used, that means there is 
currently a note about this in the spec. When we have agreed on the final 
spec, those elements will be removed and an XML schema for TCDL without 
those elements will be created.

Regards,

Christophe
