Discuss charter for new task force

    <giuseppe>  [11]http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/Profile/Charter

      [11] http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/Profile/Charter

    Any comments on the goals?

    Watson: discussion on email is target of the profile and reason for
    profile - features or devices that support a set of features.
    ... device not support all the features - which is the typical
    problem with TV type devices

    Giuseppe: two parts - pure profiling part - maturity of the spec -
    depends on the group - reach a point where we can mandate a profile
    - if able to score X then you are in this category of devices.
    ... perhaps word "profile" - device and feature profiling.

    Watson: word "profile" is correct if features all selected from
    other documents
    ... versus defining new features - which would be specification work

    Giuseppe: would not make sense to mix the two - if nothing complete
    enough to be used then we go to the working groups and get the
    external document complete and we can reference from the profile
    ... The profile should not contain the specification but the
    reference, but if there is no specification, go out to the other
    groups to get spec done

    Watson: : range of devices and not just TV; but because TV have
    limited processing capacility that we need this work. and some
    additional capabilities, like tuners, so it all gets down to device
    capabilities, i think

    Giuseppe: parts of these document apply to all devices

    Watson: things generic (like DRM) being discussed in other
    activities. if all devices had same capabilities we would not need
    ... generally applicable features should be dealt with elsewhere. it
    is only because devices cannot met all features we need this
    profiling at all

Meeting Schedule

    Giuseppe: may need calls every 2nd or 3rd week - or once a month -
    if all the discussion on the list easy for all to participate

    <yosuke>  +1


    Giuseppe: once a month? Or perhaps don't need calls and call for it
    when we need it

    Philipp: once a month. Check point once a month is good.

    Giuseppe: once a month

Bug Tracking

    Giuseppe: don't have project yet [in Bugzilla-- the proposed bug
    tracker]. will announce it when ready. and in monthly call go
    through the bugs and get this discussed. does this work for


    Giuseppe: last thing on agenda

      [12] http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webtv/raw-file/tip/tvprofile/tv.html


    Giuseppe: any other business?
    ... keep discussing on the list, call on first Monday of the month.
