From: Grosso, Paul <pgrosso@ptc.com>

Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D302020403F7@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>

Here is the draft CR request for XLink 1.1.

Please check and comment.

Especially please comment on the exit criteria
that I just made up.

Norm, there are some dates I invented herein that 
affect what dates you should put into the draft.

I created a very simple implementation report at 
http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/01/xlink11-implementation
mentioning SVG.  What else should it mention?

The XML Core WG requests publication of 
  XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1
available at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/xmlcore/xlink11/Overview.html @@@
as a Candidate Recommendation.  

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only 
version of the specification as of 25 January 2006 but 
dated 31 January 2006 in anticipation of publication then.
[@@@ Norm, note these dates!]

That file is set up to be published by moving it to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/CR-xlink11-20060131/Overview.html

The XLink 1.1 specification had been published on 7 July 2005 
at http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xlink11-20050707/
as a Last Call Specification.  A document containing the 
comments received from other WGs and the public is at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2005/xlink11/lc-status/status-report.html

The Last Call comments have been considered and resolved, and 
a notification of the fact sent to every commenter.  The 
document being sent to CR contains the changes that were made 
to accommodate these comments.

There is a Disposition of Comments outlining the status at
@@@ [Norm to generate.]

The WG's decision to request publication as a Candidate 
Recommendation was taken during a teleconference on 
25 January 2006 whose minutes may be found at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/ @@@


SCHEDULE

We propose a publication date of 2006 January 31.

We propose that the CR period lasts from the date of publication
until 1 March 2006.  Given the brevity of the specification and 
the current existence of several implementations, we expect to 
to collect the necessary implementation experience in that time.

EXIT CRITERIA

See them within the SOTD quoted below.

PRELIMINARY IMPLEMENTATION REPORT

There is a preliminary Implementation Report at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/01/xlink11-implementation

PROPOSED CR TITLE, ABSTRACT AND STATUS SECTIONS

. . .

[Norm, put the following into the Draft's status section.]

The XML Core Working Group will advance the specification to 
Proposed Recommendation when the following exit criteria have 
been met:

* There are at least two interoperable implementations of 
  the specification. 

* It has been shown that any valid XLink 1.1 document can
  be programmatically converted into an equivalent XLink 1.0
  document.

* A minimum of four weeks of the CR period must have elapsed.

Any feedback on implementation and use of this specification 
would be very welcome. To the extent possible, please provide 
a separate email message for each distinct comment.
