The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

Our next telcon will be June 25.


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

Adding an xs:numeric type to XML Schema
---------------------------------------
Norm sent email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014May/0007
asking us what we think of the fact that the XSLT/XQuery WGs are
considering adding a new union type to the xs: namespace, xs:numeric
which would be a union of decimal, float, and double.

Paul sent a reply at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014May/0008

We discussed this on our last telcon; Norm's email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014May/0013
is a summary of the discussion and the latest on the subject to date.

XML Potential Errata
--------------------
Comment that "or by the Byte Order Mark" is lacking in section 4.3.3:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2013OctDec/0002

Comment that an entity cannot "begin" with a BOM as suggested in section 
4.3.3:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2013OctDec/0003

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 still needs to check with Michael that things
are appropriately checked in and, if so, we should
just push this document through the tool chain and
publish.

Paul and Loren have pinged Michael, and he says he will
try to find time soon to reply.

ACTION to Loren and Paul: Communicate with Michael as
necessary and produce an XML Schema 1.1 2E document.


XML Media types (3023bis)
-------------------------
There is now a February 23 draft at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-appsawg-xml-mediatypes-08
with a diff at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2012/10/3023bis/draft-ietf-appsawg-xml-mediatypes-08_diff
and a DoC at http://www.w3.org/XML/2012/10/3023bis/07-comments.html
...and finally a March 2 draft at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-appsawg-xml-mediatypes-09
(I could find no DoC or non-auto diff).

[Henry, the first sentence of the last paragraph of section 2.2
includes the phrase "are given names in in [UNICODE]"--note
the extra "in".]

Paul has sent another WG email of support at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014Mar/0003
and
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/apps-discuss/current/msg11550.html

Henry reports that the IESG has tentatively approved the spec.
There we many comments made, though none requiring substantive
changes. Henry is creating the final draft of the final version.

And Wendy Seltzer has acknowledged that the W3C is now the official
change controller for all the XML related media type registrations.

Henry reports that we are in the real end game.
Review is over, and it is in the RFC editor queue.
We will get an RFC number soon-ish.

But later Henry says that xml-mediatypes RFC is stalled waiting
for HTTPbis.

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.
