Minutes for XML Core WG telcon of 2014 May 28

From: Paul Grosso <paul@paulgrosso.name>
Date: Wed, 28 May 2014 14:58:56 -0500
Message-Id: <80CC6582-6C32-4C9C-9D78-67CADCD1EDF5@paulgrosso.name>
To: core <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>
I'm in an airport on a tablet, so these minutes will be non-traditional.

Norm, David, Liam, and I were on the call (with several proxies).

The only topic we discussed was adding xs:numeric to XML Schema, or more precisely to the xs namespace as Norm later discusses at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2014May/0013

See Norm's email at that URL for an effective summary of the discussion.

We are CANCELLING our telcon of June 11, so our next telcon will be that of June 25.
