Liam has done so ($Date: 2012-12-10 19:43:52 $), and Paul,
John, and Henry have indicated they are okay with it.


Then there was some discussion about whether we should
add maintenance of XML Schema to our charter; see:

Although several WG members were lukewarm (aka, not thrilled)
with the prospect, most agreed that--if the XML Schema WG
is disappearing--we should take on XML Schema maintenance.

ACTION to Liam:  Add XML Schema maintenance to our charter.

> xml-stylesheet and HTML5
> ------------------------
> This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.  The conclusion was
> for Norm to pass on to the HTML5 WG suggested text for a
> non-normative note to be included in the HTML5 1.0 spec
> which he did:
> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=14689#c35
> The latest draft we've seen is dated 08 November 2012 at
> http://htmlwg.org/cr/html/
> and we don't see our requested wording therein.
> Norm checked with Robin who said he says there's another
> draft expected that will have the note.
> ACTION to Norm:  Continue to track mention of xml-stylesheet
> PI in the HTML5 spec.

ACTION to Norm continued.

> Names that begin [Xx][Mm][Ll]
> -----------------------------
> This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.
> Norm: proposed erratum
>    s/in this or future versions of this specification/
>     /in this or future specifications from the XML Core WG or its successors/
> Henry: I'm perfectly happy to entertain a motion to remove this from
> this specification and retain the "xml:" prefix only for elements and
> attributes and "xml-" only for PI targets.
> Norm: I'd prefer to make explicit that you *can* write names that
> begin "xml", but doing so exposes you to being walked on in the
> future. So don't do that.
> Jirka: I can go either way, it's always been a restriction, users
> should know better, but there are lots of documents that use it,
> so we should adapt to common practice.
> Jirka sent email at
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2012Nov/0009
> ACTION to Norm:  Draft an erratum to "reserve" xml-* for PI targets
> and delete the restriction that we lay claim to other names that
> start with "xml".

ACTION to Norm continued.

> xmlspec.xsl and diffspec.xsl
> ----------------------------
> Paul sent email about this at
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2012Nov/0014
> ACTION to Norm:  Come up with (and implement) a plan to
> reorganize xmlspec.xsl and diffspec.xsl to "do the right thing."

ACTION to Norm continued.

> 3.  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:
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-testsuite/2007Mar/
> 4.  LEIRIs--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#leiri
> We have planned to issue the following spec editions referencing
> LEIRIs (and any outstanding errata):
> * XML 1.0 6th Edition (John to be editor)
> * XML 1.1 3rd Edition (John to be editor)
> * XInclude 3rd Edition (Paul to be editor)
> but all this is on hold awaiting resolution of IRIbis.
> Henry has been added as an editor and there is now a new draft,
> draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00 at
> http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00
> We now await this going through the IETF process.
> 5.  XInclude 1.1--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude
> On 2012 February 14, we published
> XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases
> http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude-11-requirements/
> On 9 October 2012, we published our FPWD of XInclude 1.1 at
> http://www.w3.org/XML/2012/10/WD-xinclude-11-20121009/
> The latest draft is dated 4 December 2012 at
> http://www.w3.org/XML/2012/08/xinclude-11/
> Paul commented and suggested some rewording of one note at
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2012Dec/0004
> Norm agreed with Paul's suggested rewording and no one else commented.
> If there are no objections during this week's telcon, then:
> ACTION to Norm:  Implement Paul's suggestion in an updated
> draft of the XInclude 1.1 spec.

There were no objections heard, therefore:

ACTION to Norm:  Implement Paul's suggestion at
in an updated draft of the XInclude 1.1 spec.

We'll plan to publish mid January, and it will very possibly
be a Last Call then.  Norm expects to have an implementation
by then.

> There is a publishing moratorium from December 14 through
> January 2, so unless the WG feels strongly that we should
> publish in the next few days, I would plan to publish the
> next draft in mid January (our first telcon of the year is
> January 9).  Assuming that schedule, we should decide if we
> should make the next draft a Last Call.
