TPAC report day 2

From: Charles McCathieNevile <chaals@opera.com>
Date: Sat, 07 Nov 2009 12:53:25 -0800
To: "WebApps WG" <public-webapps@w3.org>
Message-ID: <op.u21lnbrrwxe0ny@widsith.local>
Sorry folks, it was a long meeting for me so this was delayed.

The draft minutes are included at  
http://www.w3.org/2009/11/02-webapps-minutes.html starting from the WebIDL  
section - http://www.w3.org/2009/11/02-webapps-minutes.html#item06

We discussed

WebIDL
   We're going to update it to look like ECMAScript 5, and look for some  
tests of usng it in existing stuff like DOM 2 to show it works, but wait  
to push it to Rec, advising specs who rely on it that it is in fact  
considered stable and they should be able to go ahead with that dependency.

Selectors API
   Version 1 is ready for CR but needs a tiny bit of test suite polishing  
so we can get it finished. A separate email covers the missed item on  
SelectorsAPI v2 - http://www.w3.org/mid/4AF1DF02.3000303@lachy.id.au (we  
ran out of time)

DOM 3 Events
   Mostly a jint discussion with i18n on how to deal with the issue of how  
we represent what you get from Key events as data about the key

Offline storage / databases
   The SQL-based Web Database proposal will probably not be implemented by  
major players so is being shifted to a "parked and of historical interest"  
mode while we work on the Web Simple Database proposal from Nikunj. We  
also touched on Datacache, and ended with an action for Nikunj to explain  
how it relates to appcache if you have the two running together.

Second CORS
   A presentation from Maciej gave us an easier framework to work through  
the issues and questions in a more productive way, although we are still  
in discussion phase. There is further email on the list.

New Events
   We agreed to take on an extension to DOM 3 Events covering multi-touch,  
orientation, and similar, rather than having them all wait until DOM 4 or  
push back the DOM 3 Events spec futher.

Administrivia
   A quick joint discussion between the widgets and APIs parts of the group  
to say waht we are doing and thank everyone.

Special props to Jonas for scribing half a day, which is above and beyond  
the call of duty. Thanks to everyone else for turning up and helping us  
move forwards...

cheers

Chaals
