TPAC week
TPAC will be 31 October through 4 November 2011 in Santa Clara
California.  I think we should plan to have a f2f during this
week: http://www.w3.org/2011/11/TPAC/ - Meeting Overview page.

Likely attendance:

Probably will:  Paul, Norm, Henry, Laim
Maybe:  Mohamed
Most likely won't:  John, Daniel, Jirka, Glenn

Charter renewal
Charters have been renewed.  XML Core members do not have
to rejoin explicitly.

XML Processor Profiles review
There is a substantially reworked XML Processing Model WG's
Last Call Working Draft of "XML processor profiles" at

John and Glenn re-reviewed the latest version
of the XML processor profiles last call draft at
and had a variety of comments at the last telcon.

John sent some comments at

***ACTION to Glenn:  Send your comments on the latest 
version of the XML processor profiles last call draft at
to the Processing Model comments list at

FWIW, if anyone is interested, Michael (CMSMcQ) sent fairly 
extensive comments at

Name-escaping spec
Henry sent email at
asking if we should consider producing a WG Note recommending 
an escaping scheme for turning (mostly) arbitrary strings into
XML names as a Best Practice.

XML Security specs
The XML Security WG has asked the XML Core WG to review its
upcoming specs as referenced below, especially:

Canonical XML Version 2.0,

XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0,

Jirka has said he will at some point.  Other volunteers solicited.

3.  XML 1.0--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-errata

We are creating an XML 1.0 6th Edition and XML 1.1 3rd (or
perhaps 6th) Edition.

ACTION to John:  Update the XML sources for XML 1.0 and 1.1
to reflect any errata and the LEIRI reference.

4.  XML Test Suite.

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

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

5.  Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1--see
   and http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.1.

6.  LEIRIs--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#leiri

We had planned to issue the following spec editions referencing LEIRIs:

* XML 1.0 6th Edition
* XML 1.1 3rd Edition
* XInclude 3rd Edition

John wonders if we should call the next edition of XML 1.1 
the 6th Edition to match the XML 1.0 spec.  (No decision yet.)

We decided not to touch XLink 1.0.  XLink 1.1 is already leirified.

John will update the XML sources for XML 1.0 and 1.1.

Paul will update the Xinclude source.

Paul, Norm, and Liam are responsible for dealing with pubrules
and other administrivia.

Our LEIRI WG Note says:

 When [IRIbis is published as an RFC], this specification will be
 re-issued to reference it in place of the extracts given below.

We are concerned that the XML specs would be normatively referencing
an RFC through a (non-normative) WG Note, so we're not sure what we
want to do here.

Furthermore, IRIBis is not moving to RFC quickly.  So we're not
sure what we should do about issuing new editions.

Recent email from Larry Masinter (one of the authors of IRIbis) at
doesn't give a time line for IRIBis at this point.

***ACTION to Henry:  Ping Larry Masinter (one of the authors of
IRIbis) for the latest on the IRIbis schedule.

7.  xml:id--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-id

8.  XML Base 2nd Ed--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-base

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

10.  XInclude 3rd Ed--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude

We are creating an XInclude 3rd Edition.

ACTION to Paul:  Update the XML sources for Xinclude to reflect 
any errata and the LEIRI reference.

11.  Associating Stylesheets.

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

AssocSS 2nd Ed is now a Recommendation at

ACTION to Henry: Update the Errata document at

12.  xml-model

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

This has been published as a WG Note at

The ISO ballet had ended.  There were four comments which
need to be addressed which means there will probably be another
ISO vote.

Some of the comments have lead us to tweak our Note.

Paul prepared an updated draft of the WG Note at

Comments solicited.
