Message-ID: <53FB448D.2020707@paulgrosso.name>
To: core <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

The XML Core WG telcons are scheduled for every other week.

Our next telcon is scheduled for September 3, and I plan
to hold that telcon regardless, though I hope to have some
progress to discuss.


Status and open actions
=======================

XML Potential Errata

ACTION to John and Henry: Review and comment on the above two comments
on the discussion of BOMs in section 4.3.3 of the XML spec.

Comment about documents with an "empty DTD":
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014Jan/thread#msg8
and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2014JanMar/

Henry suggests we could probably make the XML spec clearer here;
see also his comments at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2014JanMar/0004

Paul sent the WG response at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2014JanMar/0005
and there was more back from the commentor at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2014JanMar/

ACTION to Henry: Read the post-February 6 email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2014JanMar/
and let us know what you think we should do.


Submitting XML Schema 1.1 to ISO
--------------------------------
See also
https://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-schema

We have decided we will first publish XML Schema 1.1 2E (with
approved errata). After that, we would send XML Schema 1.1 2E
(only) to ISO.

Loren has offered to do the editorial duties, and David
talked to CMSMCQ about getting some more help in the details.

ACTION to Loren and David: Produce a publication-ready version
of XML Schema 1.1 2E incorporating the approved errata.

It looks like there are 3 bugs for Structures, none for Datatypes,
but after checking with Michael, he found
https://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/06/xmlschema-1/structures.errata-2012.html
which shows 8 errata items whereas bugzilla shows only 3.

We discussed
https://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/06/xmlschema-1/structures.errata-2012.html

Henry figures we can just publish this document.

Loren believes the latest document includes everything,
so the next step is to push it through the tool chain,
but that make take help from Henry or Michael. Loren
will try to contact Michael again.

We will need a diff (or list of changes) and a test suite.
Loren says the diff is already available.

We need to see if any of the changes are normative.
It appears that none of the changes require a chance
in the test suite.

ACTION to Loren:  Check if any changes are normative and/or
would require a change to the test suite.

XInclude 1.1
------------
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/

On 15 January 2013, we published our (first) Last Call of
XInclude 1.1 at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-xinclude-11-20130115/
and Paul sent the transition announcement at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2013Jan/0012
(also cc-ing the chairs mailing list).

On 2013 October 8, we published the XInclude 1.1 CR at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/CR-xinclude-11-20131008/

Norm reports that Michael Kay's code just accesses Xerces code,
so Norm might have to work with Xerces.

DV reports that he is busy and so cannot commit to a deadline
for adding XInclude 1.1 support to libxml.

ACTION to Norm:  Continue to work toward getting XInclude 1.1
implementations and document them in our implementation report.

Note also the desire for another test case for the XInclude test suite per
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014Apr/0000

Norm may see if he knows anyone still working on Xerces.

Norm is planning to write a SAX filter to implement XInclude 1.1.
He believes this will lead to a way for using XInclude 1.1 with
Saxon's XSLT processor and most any other Java based tool.
