Hi folks,

a quick summary of today's meeting - there are also draft minutes  
http://www.w3.org/2009/11/02-dap-minutes.html#item05 until lunch for the  
joint session with DAP

We talked about progress events and the agreement was to remove most stuff  
 from the spec, so there will be a new draft which does that.

We talked about File APIs with the DAP group. There was disagreement on  
whether our File API (née File Upload, but it got married to the ability  
to read a file) spec should be coordinated with the Filesystem API (née  
Opera's File I/O submission to this group early last year), or whether  
they live in different worlds. We also agreed to work on a Web  
notifications spec in this group.

We talked about the Confused Deputy risk that can be created with CORS,  
how it works and whether it is a real risk. This discussion was  
inconclusive and will continue tomorrow (see separate email).

We discussed Views in DOM, and resolved that nobody appears to use them  
anywhere real, so while we won't destroy the attributes etc we wil  
collapse them all down to a single concept of the default view in  
practice, and we will also aim to provide a new method to get bounding  
boxes (including under CSS transforms, and the bounding box of a  
transformed region) in CSS-OM.

Finally we discussed XHR 1 and 2. While we are still working on XHR 2  
(there are various bits that are still up in the air), we believe we have  
resolved all outstanding issues, and the meeting agreed that we should  
request last Call status. There will be a formal Call for Consensus on  
this separately (to give those who did not attend the opportunity to have  
their say), but probably tomorrow because it is late now and I have had  

More fun tomorrow - you can see our planned agenda at
