Draft #2: Transition Request: PR Request for XLink 1.1

From: Grosso, Paul <pgrosso@ptc.com>
Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2006 12:49:05 -0500
Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D30205BDE4D7@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

Here is my second draft PR request for XLink 1.1;
all comments welcomed and solicited.

Before I can send in the request, we still need:

1.  Resolution of comments in DoC 
2.  Update to implementation report (it is a year old)
3.  PR-ready draft (needs status, etc. updated and pubrules checked)
4.  diff/review version
5.  WG approval to request PR

Then we will need to schedule a PR call and finally
request publication.

Domain. For background on this work, please see the XML 
Activity Statement.

This specification implements all of the XLink 1.1 requirements 
documented in [Extending XLink 1.0]. These changes make XLink 
more useful in the places where it is already being used and 
make it practical in a variety of similar vocabularies.

An Implementation Report is available at 
http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/01/xlink11-implementation.  The test 
suite is described at http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/03/xlink11-tests.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 
5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public 
list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the 
deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions 
for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge 
of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential 
Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with 
section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.
