4. Admininstrivia:

People should make reservations for May F2F.

No response yet from QA contact recruitment.

No response yet from testing recruitment.

QA spec reviews - Amy's comments on the spec guidelines [.4]
  Jonathan: can we submit this in the next day or two?
  Multiple levels of conformance are too confusing - general agreement
(no dispute anyway)
  Amy : we seem in line with what XMLP did here.
  Jonathan : OK if I submit to QA?

ACTION: Jonathan to slice and dice Amy's comments to submit to the QA
group's web form

Jonathan : we have no QA contact/lead yet, so it seems difficult to
think in concrete terms about resources/planning yet....

Jonathan : please ask within your organizations to see if there are QA
folks who might be interested in being involved

Arthur : Can we cooperate here with WS-I?

Arthur : WS-I "profile" of WSDL 1.2 will hopefully be exactly what's in
the spec (profiling 1.1 was due to inconsistencies / errors)

Arthur : Can we share tests?

Jonathan : Maybe we can share their validator, which would schema
validate plus do WSDL-specific checks?

Jonathan : might be timing issues with syncing with WS-I

Jonathan : need some kind of plan to be more solid - how do you test

Jonathan: we should list assertions in doc at least

Arthur : What about a "WSDL validator"? (like the schema validator)

Jonathan : That'd be great - volunteers?

Arthur : I'm interested, conditionally

ACTION : David Booth to investigate what it takes to get a validator
available as an official W3C entity

Jonathan : would still like a QA "lead", to help with more of a
full-scale plan rather than an ad-hoc one.

5.  New Issues. - Moving MIME info to abstract part (Arthur)

Arthur : need enough in the abstract interface to codegen

Arthur : Sometimes you want to send a MIME type, independent of binding

Arthur : should MIME be baked-in (like schema)?

Arthur : MIME should be a parallel type system...

Jonathan : do people generally agree with this?

Jeff S : Agree that MIME >type< information should be indicated in the
'abstract' part of the WSDL.

Jacek : +1

(General agreement that media type info should be expressible in the
abstract part of WSDL)

Jonathan : ok, we need to address this, but should move on for now,
since a proposal from Gudge/DBox/etc will be out soon.  Let's discuss
next week?

Everyone should read Arthur's proposal and Gudge's paper

7.  Issue 28: transport='uri'

Waiting on proposal from Phillippe.

8.  Issue 2: SOAPAction has been deprecated, as of SOAP 1.2

Waiting on proposal from Glen.

Glen summarizes - simple proposal to express as a property in WSDL, but
it either needs to be exposed as a property in the HTTP binding for SOAP
or added on via another spec.

ACTION : Glen will comment to XMLP re: SOAPAction being made a property
and the crufty fallback we could resort to if they don't.

9.  Issue 6e - Arthur's proposal on URL replacement.

Arthur : need to satisfy req #85, this is awaiting a proposal from me.

10. Issues 53-55 - W3C\Philippe's proposal on per-HTTP method binding

Arthur : this has been written up and just needs comments/cleaning
before presentation

11. Part 2 issues identified by Part 2 editors.

Jonathan : next week

12. Removing message.  Umit's posting on the value of part as an

Jonathan : holding off on this for now

13. Patterns.  

Jonathan : nothing further yet here

14. BindingType proposal from Kevin.

Postponed until March 27th, when Kevin returns.

Jonathan : any further business we can do this week?
