Status and open actions

XInclude 1.1
On 2015 June 30, we published our second XInclude 1.1 CR at

As of 2016 April 27, the latest (diff version of the) spec is available at:

Norm has an implementation in XML Calabash.
He has also implemented XInclude 1.1 in MarkLogic.

Jirka reports that there is another XInclude 1.1 implementation
in XML Mind XML Editor.  See:

Norm has made some updates to the test suite per

Norm has augmented the test suite some more:


* Language fixup and the expected results of test eduni-3

Norm questions why xml:lang="en-gb" is expected on line 14
because fixup isn't required.

It turns out that Norm may have counted things wrong, or
perhaps his implementation of language fixup is wrong.

He will look again at things and tweak the test to be
clearer (since two tests have "Hello").


* Rework XInclude tests to use xml:id attributes?

Norm points out many implementations do not handle id attributes
as ids because they do not process the DTD, so he proposes that
we change all the ids--except one--in the test suite to xml:id
so that they work for such implementations.

He will leave one with id which will fail in such implementations.


Note also the desire for another test case for the XInclude test suite per

ACTION to Norm:  Add another test case to the test suite per

ACTION to Norm:  Send email about the test suite to those who
should be using it to test their implementations.

ACTION to Jirka:  Run the XML Mind XML Editor through the new test suite.

ACTION to Norm:  (Continue to) run the test suite through Calabash and MarkLogic.

ACTION to Norm:  Update the implementation report.
