I've gone back through the archives to pull out issues that we've had with
the
step library.  For some of them, the e-mail threads seemed to end in a
decision
that I've tried to detail below.

Please let me know if I've missed any issues.

In no particular order:

1. boolean option values - 'yes|no' versus 'true|false' ?

   We have steps that have options that use 'true' and 'false' values and
   we have one ('status-only' on http-request) that uses 'yes' and 'no'
values.

   We also use 'yes' and 'no' in our specification.

   Doesn't it make sense to have these all in sync?  Also, shouldn't we be
   use an XML Schema simple type (e.g. xs:boolean) ?


2. Add a 'content-type' option to the p:unescape-markup step.

   This option would accept a media type.  If the media type is recognized
by
   the processor, parsing according to the media can be performed and that
behavior
   is implementation defined with the exception of any XML media type (i.e.
text/xml,
   application/xml, and *+xml types).  There is no default value and the
step
   assumes XML parsing without a value.

3. Wrapping a sequence:

   Do we want a separate step type?

   Should the 'name' option name be changed?

4. Http-request review

   - header conflicts

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2007May/0138.html
   - invalid method creates a dynamic error
   - href uri isn't a HTTP-based protocol (allows for https)

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2007May/0101.html
   - multiple bodies is now handled by multipart:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2007May/0100.html
   - making it required

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2007May/0000.html

5. Should we rename p:xslt to p:xslt1

6. p:load options 'validate' and 'namespace-support'

   The 'validate' option would control DTD validation.

   The 'namespace-support' would turn on or off namespace processing.

7. p:escape-markup issues?

   - Given a match pattern via an option called 'match', it will
     escape particular elements (e.g. the RSS description element).

8. p:aggregate again

9. General validation

10. split-sequence


http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2007Apr/0171.html

11. count/tee proposals

  - Should tee be removed now that we have journaling ?
  - Should count remain?

12. p:save/p:serialize proposal

  This is part of the forthcoming proposal on serialization.

13. p:label issue?
