ACTION: Richard to construct a test case for these issues.


Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1
-------------------------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.0 and
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.1.

Richard has partially updated the NS PE doc at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2001/05/proposed-xml-names-errata.html

NPE27, 28, and 30 are in countdown until September 10.

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

We need to consider what to do about allowing IRIs (or LEIRIs?)
as namespace names in NS 1.0 and what to do about undeclaring
namespace prefix bindings in NS 1.0.

John sent email asking the I18N Core how they feel about
changing NS1.0 to allow IRIs (instead of just URIs) for
namespace names:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-international/2008JulSep/0049
and there was some email discussion--see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-international/2008JulSep/thread.

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

Martin's has made a new latest version available at 
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-duerst-iri-bis-04

Martin has asked us to review it and supply tests; see:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2008Aug/0002

Addison Phillips of I18N Core recommends we consider publishing 
LEIRIs as a WG Note; see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2008Aug/0004

A summary of what specs need to be revised to reference LEIRIs is at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2007Dec/0045


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
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/PER-xmlbase-20080320/
and announced at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/chairs/2008JanMar/0112

The XML Base PER review period ended 30 June 2008.

We have some comments in the comments list:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-linking-comments/2008AprJun/

ACTION to Richard:  Develop a DoC document.

We noted that the XHMTL WG raised a question about process at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-linking-comments/2008AprJun/
0012
saying:

 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.


XLink 1.1
---------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xlink1.1

The XLink 1.1 Last Call has been published at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-xlink11-20080331/

The LC review period ended 16 May 2008.

Norm has prepared a DoC at 
http://www.w3.org/XML/2008/05/xlinklc/

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.

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

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xinclude-20061115

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