Draft Transition Request: PER Request for XInclude 1.0 Second Edition

From: Grosso, Paul <pgrosso@ptc.com>
Date: Thu, 25 May 2006 11:02:37 -0400
Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D302036CA260@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

Here is my draft PER requestion for XInclude 1.0 2nd Ed.

One question I have (mostly for Philippe and Henry) is
what IP paragraph we should have.  The XInclude 1.0 uses
CPP.  What should this 2nd Ed use?

The XML Core WG requests publication of 
  XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 (Second Edition)
available at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/04/XInclude/REC-xinclude-20060423.html @@@
as a Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER).  

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only 
version of the specification as of DD MMM 2006 but   @@@
dated DD MMM 2006 in anticipation of publication then. @@@

That file is set up to be published by moving it to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xinclude-20060424/Overview.html @@@

The XInclude 1.0 First Edition was published on 20 December 2004 
at http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xinclude-20041220/
as a Recommendation.  All changes to the document
are recorded in the XInclude Errata document at
A diff-marked review copy is available at

The WG's decision to request publication as a PER was taken 
during a WG telcon on 2006 MMM DD whose minutes may be found at @@@


We propose a publication date of 2006 MMM DD.   @@@

We propose that the PER period lasts from the date of publication
until 31 June 2006.  



This document specifies a processing model and syntax 
for general purpose inclusion. Inclusion is accomplished 
by merging a number of XML information sets into a single 
composite infoset. Specification of the XML documents 
(infosets) to be merged and control over the merging 
process is expressed in XML-friendly syntax (elements, 
attributes, URI references).

Status of this Document

[[The text here is what I suggest should be the status,
except I don't show links, but most of this test including
the links should be inferable from the existing XInclude
status and/or the status for the XML 1.0 4th Ed draft PER--pbg]]

This document is a Proposed Edited Recommendation of the W3C. 
This second edition is not a new version of XInclude. As a convenience 
to readers, it incorporates the changes dictated by the accumulated 
errata (available at http://www.w3.org/2004/12/xinclude-errata) 
to the First Edition of XInclude 1.0, dated 20 December 2004. 

W3C Advisory Committee Members are invited to send formal review 
comments to the W3C Team until dd MMMM 2006. Advisory Committee 
Representatives should consult their WBS questionnaires. The 
public is invited to send comments on this document to 
www-xml-xinclude-comments@w3.org; public archives are available. 

The errata list for this edition is available at

Known implementations are documented in the XInclude Implementation 
Report. A Test Suite is maintained to help in assessing conformance 
to this specification.

Publication as a Proposed Edited Recommendation does not imply 
endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document 
and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents 
at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other 
than work in progress.

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.


This document has been produced under the 24 January 2002 CPP 
as amended by the W3C Patent Policy Transition Procedure. 
An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the 
individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) with respect 
to this specification should disclose the information in 
accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy. Documentation 
of intellectual property possibly relevant to this specification 
may be found at the Working Group's public IPR disclosure page.
