   Mohamed gives possible regrets.

  Plans for interim CR draft

   Norm summarizes the status; getting there but not quite ready.

   Norm: I propose a publication date of 12 Oct with a commitment from the
   editor to get a new draft available by close-of-business on 8 Oct.

   No objections heard.

   Proposal: Publish the current editor's working draft, with additional
   changes as seen fit by the editor, as a new interim CR draft on 12 Oct.


  Review of open CR issues

   -> [17]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/2008/11/cr-comments/

   Norm: We resolved 163, or rather directed the editor to resolve it, last

   Norm summarizes his change to the declared output bindings.

   Proposal: The editor got it right.


   Proposal: This part of 2.2 has been successfully clarified as well.


   Norm: I think that closes 163.

  166 Steps with no type in p:library

   Norm: I think the status quo is that it isn't an error to do this.
   ... but it does seem a little pointless.

   Mohamed: I think we should say something about this.

   Norm: I think there are two choices: make it an error or just add a note
   about it.

   Norm/Mohamed discuss the fact that an implementation-defined mechanism
   could run them even if they don't have a type.

   Paul: I don't think we should make it an error.

   Norm: It looks to me fairly harmless.

   Proposal: Add a note to the spec to inform readers, but not make it an


  167 Runtime semantics of p:try

   Norm expresses his feeling that p:try is still in the spirit of this rule.

   Henry: It is worth putting an explicit note in the spec about this. If all
   it said was the result of a multi container step will always be the result
   of exactly one of it's pipelines, that would be true. But that's not quite
   true for p:try.
   ... I think we should add "with the possible exception of side-effects in
   the main branch of a try/catch in which the try fails."
   ... Pipelines are going to have side effects.

   Some discussion of whether or not the xpath expressions in p:when clauses
   can cause side effects.

   Henry: I think it's worth recasting this.

   <scribe> ACTION: Editor to attempt to clarify this prose, noting that side
   effects may arise in p:group w/i p:try and from XPath expressions
   evaluated by p:when or from the bindings within p:xpath-context. [recorded
   in [18]http://www.w3.org/2009/10/01-xproc-minutes.html#action01]

   Henry: I'd say "with the possible except of side effects, such as..." so
   we don't seem to be enumerating them all.

  Progress on the default processing model?

   Henry reports no progress.

   Henry: I will try to get something done before the face-to-face.

  Any other business

   Norm expresses the goal of getting to PR this month.

   Mohamed: Last time I looked at the test suite, coverage wasn't that good.
   Has it improved?

   Norm: I didn't think it was that bad after we added serialization tests.


Summary of Action Items

   [NEW] ACTION: Editor to attempt to clarify this prose, noting that side
   effects may arise in p:group w/i p:try and from XPath expressions
   evaluated by p:when or from the bindings within p:xpath-context. [recorded
   in [19]http://www.w3.org/2009/10/01-xproc-minutes.html#action01]
