The WG had CONSENSUS with the decision taken at the f2f
which was to write our new (post June) charter to finish 
up what we are doing and maintaining the existing specs 
without adding anything new. We would plan to have telcons 
reduced to once a month.  

ACTION to Paul, Norm, Henry:  Implement this decision
in the upcoming new WG charter.

ACTION to Thomas and John continued.

Glenn asked about how the dsig spec will be updated
to reference the new C14N 1.1.  Though this needs to
be confirmed with Thomas, Konrad said he didn't think
there was an existing dsig WG, but that one might get
chartered to do an update to the signatures spec.

> At the f2f, we had CONSENSUS to change the

One paragraph in the Infoset says the baseURI may
have unescaped characters, but elsewhere it says
the baseURI follows XML Base which points to RFC 2396.
If we change XML Base, we shouldn't have to change
the Infoset spec much.

> However, we are still discussing this in email.

ACTION to Richard:  Send another message in this thread.

ACTION to John:  Reply to Richard's message.

> We DECIDED at the f2f to take XLink to CR.

ACTION to Norm continued.

> At the f2f, we also decided we should augment the wording 
> that François suggested (and that we are putting into all 
> the specs including XLink) to describe the resolution 
> algorithm for relative XML Resource Identifiers. It should

> ACTION to Norm:  Modify the XLink draft accordingly.

and send out separate email with the new wording.

ACTION to Francois:  Incorporate Norm's new wording into
one message that gives the new wording for all the specs
we are changing.

> Paul had sent a draft CR request at
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2006Jan/0019
> but he needs to update it.
> 
> ACTION to Paul: Send in the (updated) CR request.

Plan to send it in on March 16th.

ACTION to Henry:  Make preparatory plans to arrange for
a CR telcon the week of March 20th or so.  TimBL's attendance
will be required.

> 6. XML errata.  The published 1.0 errata document is [8], the

> Norm looked at it and approved it.

> ACTION to Henry:  Make any final changes needed and repost.

Henry did so, version of 2006 March 8 at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2006/02/xml11-20060222.xml

Francois points out that this version does not reflect
errata since the third edition.

ACTION to Francois:  Send his latest source to Henry.

ACTION to Henry:  Try to merge the documents.

ACTION to François continued.

ACTION to Richard continued.

> ACTION to François: Update the Errata and PE document

ACTION to François continued.

ACTION to Richard continued.

ACTION to Richard continued.

Richard hopes to do something in the next 2-3 weeks.

With the discussion at the f2f, we are closing this item.
