October Technical Plenary
The next Technical Plenary is scheduled for October in Cannes:

As of the present, it looks like the only attendees
will be Henry and Norm, so despite our earlier decision
to have an XML Core WG f2f there, it appears that will
no longer be feasible.  Unless others indicate plans
to attend by the time of this week's telcon, I will
inform W3C staff that XML Core will not be having
a f2f in Cannes.

3.  C14N 1.1

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#c14n1.1

4.  XML 1.0

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-errata

The XML 1.0 5th Edition PER has been published at

The PER period ended 16 May 2008. 

We need to have at least three implementations that 
pass the test suite for each of the errata that have 
been newly applied to the 5th Edition. 

A preliminary implementation report is at

ACTION to Richard, Henry:  Add a test to the XML 1.0 5th Ed 
Test Suite about version=1.7 documents.

A preliminary implementation report is at

DV has implemented XML 1.0 5th Ed and is working on testing.
He will let us know when we can add what to the IR at which
point we will be able to ask Henry to push for a Directors
Decision and go to Rec.

5.  XML 1.1

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml1.1

6.  XML Test Suite.

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-test-suite

Henry/Richard discussed some test suite issues raised by Frans Englich:

ACTION to Richard:  Construct a test case for the XML test suite 
issues raised by Frans Englich:

7.  Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.0 and

Richard has partially updated the NS PE doc at

ACTION to Richard:  Put NPE27, 28, and 30 into countdown.

ACTION to Richard:  Fill in a proposed resolution for NPE29.

ACTION to Henry:  Check amongst W3C staff to see how they
would feel about us pushing forward a Namespace 1.0 3rd
Edition PER that included as an "erratum" the additional
capability (from NS 1.1) to undeclare a namespace prefix.
And add to that action the possibility of changing namespace
names from URIs to IRIs in NS1.0 via an "erratum".

Paul started a thread (imported from www-tag) about whether
NS 1.0 should allow IRIs (or LEIRIs?) as namespace names:

John sent email asking the I18N Core how they feel about
changing NS1.0 to allow IRIs (instead of just URIs) for
namespace names:

8.  LEIRIs

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#leiri

A summary of what specs need to be revised to reference LEIRIs is at

Martin's has made a new latest version available at 

Martin has asked us to review it and supply tests; see:

Addison Phillips of I18N Core recommends we consider publishing 
LEIRIs as a WG Note; see

9.  XML Base 2nd Edition 2nd PER

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-base

The (second) XML Base (Second Edition) PER has been published at
and announced at

The XML Base PER review period ended 30 June 2008.

We have some comments in the comments list:

We discussed the XHTML WG comment at
a bit.

Norm responded to 

ACTION to Richard:  Modify XML Base to clarify the meaning of 
C0 controls and add an example that uses an IRI.

ACTION to Richard:  Review and suggest a response to
and develop a DoC document.

Richard questions whether we need a DoC between PER and Rec.
Paul thinks we should have one.

We noted that the XHMTL WG raised a question about process at

 We are not convinced that the proposed changes fall
 within the process guidelines of what new features
 may be added to a recommendation.

ACTION to Henry:  Check with W3M about whether there is any
process concern with our XML Base PER.

10.  XLink 1.1.

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xlink1.1

The earlier XLink CR was published at

The XLink 1.1 LC was published at

The LC review period ended 16 May 2008.

Norm has prepared a DoC at 

ACTION to Henry:  Continue to get the XSD for
XLink at an accessible URI.

There's an open question about whether the XSD/DTD 
should default the xlink:type attribute value. 
None of this effects our last call because the
XSD/DTD are not normative.

John asked whether we should have two schemas, one for
each of our conformance levels.

ACTION to Henry, John:  Think about having a basic level
conformance XSD for XLink.

Paul asks us to consider skipping CR and going directly to PR.

ACTION to Henry:  Review the history and make a recommendation
as to whether we should skip CR and go directly to PR.

11.  XInclude 3rd Edition

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:

See http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude for
LEIRI-related changes for the 3rd Edition.

ACTION to Daniel: Produce a PER-ready draft of XInclude 3rd Ed
with appropriate references to the IRI RFC for LEIRIs.
