DRAFT#1 Transition Request: PER Request for XML Base Second Edition

From: Grosso, Paul <pgrosso@ptc.com>
Date: Wed, 6 Dec 2006 17:27:26 -0500
Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D30205956C8F@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

Here is my first draft PER requestion for XML Base Second Edition.

Please review and comment, especially Henry and Richard.

I picked Dec 20th at the publication date, and I recommend
Richard, Jose, Thomas, and Glenn all plan accordingly in their
drafts (though be prepared to change at the last minute
if necessary).

Richard, be sure to add "(Second Edition)" to the title
of XML Base.  Also note the URLs of things I used in
this draft as marked by ***.  The file at
should be the non-diff-markup one, and the diff-markup one
should be at
or some such.  Also take note of the text I suggest for the
Status section below, though modify as you see fit and/or
as dictated by pubrules.  Note that I opted to continue
to refer to http://www.w3.org/2001/06/xmlbase-errata for
ongoing XML Base errata.  I'm not sure if this is what you
had in mind or not, and I can go any way you want; it's just
that I know this URL is already created, so we don't have
to worry about that.  Let me know if you prefer something else.

Finally, I didn't mention anything about known implementations
or test suites, as I wasn't sure what to say here.  Ideas welcome.

version of the specification as of @@ December 2006,                 @@@
dated to reflect the expected publication date of
20 December 2006 and designed to be published by having

Depending on the scheduling of the PER call, we propose a
