[Draft] Transition Request: PR Request for XInclude take 2

From: Paul Grosso <pgrosso@arbortext.com>
Date: Fri, 3 Sep 2004 14:21:41 -0400
Message-ID: <F13E1BF26B19BA40AF3C0DE7D4DA0C033EF8AF@ati-mail01.arbortext.local>
To: "XML Core WG" <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

Here is my 2nd take on the draft PR request.  @@@@ mark
areas where we will need to make a last minute adjustment.

Comments solicited.

I ran pubrules on the July 12th document, and the only
things that came up were URLs and dates which we will
adjust at the last minute, so I think we are okay there.

Remaining ACTIONs are:

1.  Richard:  Copy the implementation report into public 
              space and email the new URL to the WG.

2.  Daniel:  Provide us with an implementation report asap.

3.  Paul:  Get from Elliotte a definitive statement about
           his support of xml:lang and accept/accept-language.

4.  WG:  Approve this WD to go to PR.

5.  Paul and Norm:  Create the final version in WG space.

6.  Paul:  Generate and send the actual PR request.

7.  Henry:  Help arrange a PR call.

The XML Core WG requests publication of the following document 
as a W3C Proposed Recommendation:

XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only version of 
the specification, dated 12 July 2004. @@@@

A review version with diffs noted is at

The XInclude 1.0 specification was published as a Candidate
Recommendation on 13 April 2004. The list of issues that were 
raised and discussed can be found at:

The XML Core WG has received two replies from a commentor objecting to 
our response--see issues xi-2 and xi-12.  In each case, the XML Core WG
re-affirmed our original response with the following rationales:
* for xi-2:
   "We decided to leave IRI validation up to the implementation.  ERH
    objects to doing so, but Daniel's implementation is a case in point
    where IRI validation is not feasible." 
* for xi-12:
   "The WG's understanding of the request from I18N and the TAG in
    this area leads us to reconfirm our previous decision."

The WG's decision to request publication as a Proposed Recommendation
was taken during a teleconference on @@ September 2004, minutes may be
found at:

The CR request was made at
Therein, the exit criteria required reports of at least 2 successful 
implementations of the required features defined in this specification 
and at least 1 successful implementation of the following optional 

1.  xml:lang ([language] property) fixup (section 4.5.6)
2.  accept and accept-language attribute handling (section 3.1)

A successful implementation is one that passes the test suite for 
the supported features.

The test suite for XInclude is available at:

The implementation results are available at (member only): @@@@

The results show two or three implementations of all required features
and at least one implementation of the above two mentioned optional
features; therefore, we have fulfilled our CR exit criteria.


We propose that the PR period for XInclude 1.0 last for eight 
weeks from the date of PR publication.


The XML Core WG approved publication during our telcon of 2004 Sept
