      * [17]Summary of Action Items

Content Transformation TF

    Francois: On Tuesday we had a good discussion, and send an email to
    IETF TLS Working Group, we are moving forward, but still take time

    Bryan: wasn't on that call, I send a list of comments in response to
    Tom's comment
    ... since we decided to look into that in more details
    ... we need to address the points I raised.
    ... people need to be aware of that, it is an important topic

    Francois: Yes. I re-read your comments before sending the email to
    the IETF TLS WG to make sure I was not forgetting some crucial
    ... I am not sure if at the end we will end up with more detailed
    ... but we have to make sure that we understand the big pictures and
    the caveats
    ... before we write down things to the spec

    Bryan: just wanted to raise those points

    Francois: I don't think it will be ready by the end of f2f meeting,

    DKA: will add that to agenda, how much time we should spend on the
    ... could easily spend a day

    Francois: one day too much, half day fantastic

Korea (if present)

    DKA: anyone from Korea?


    Abel: little bit activity in the mailing list
    ... some people asking how to use but nothing new in the development

    DKA: anything that needs to be done in the f2f regarding checker
    ... what time would u like with the checker

    Abel: not sure
    ... HTTPS stuff would be good to discuss

    DKA: clarification?

    Jo: I think we will be done with this before the f2f but the change
    we proposed to mobileOK Basic Tests doesn't seem to work for the WSC

    Francois: re. the final change on HTTPS, we need to address it ASAP,
    even though I don't think we can publish it before the F2F
    ... Jo do you have time to work on this?

    Jo: I will do that tomorrow

    Francois: Fantastic

Mobile Accessibility

    DKA: Regarding Shawn's email to the public list, anything to discuss

    <Jo: Yeliz is looking for feedback from several people, including
    me, I think

    <Yeliz: yes, I addressed all the feedback I received in the latest

    <Jo: my assumption is that when that is done, we're done, right?

    <Yeliz: yes.

    <Yeliz: I won't be able to attend the F2F meeting.

    <Yeliz: The EOWG is happy with this version.

    Jo: haven't seen any comment in the mailing list, I think we need to
    action everybody for that

    ... anything else we need to discuss about this document?
    ... I can think of one more thing, latency section
    ... change it around, etc

    Adam: I think some of the sections need refactoring
    ... For example, one Web, not sure what the intend of this

    DKA: The intend is ...

    Adam: There are issues raised with respect to Bryan's comments, or
    may be we want to read it before

    Bryan: When you say PIM are you talking about context server?

    Adam: In section 3.3.2 there is a bulleted list
    ... I have to go through my notes to check the changes

    DKA: Any other issues that we can close
    ... ?

    Adam: best to stay for f2f, 3.1.1 retains personalisation

    ... needs discussion on whole notion of tailoring your
    content/application for device
    ... what my user agent is? how user agents discloses its identity
    and capability
    ... I made some precise comments.
    ... It is not well received with this group which puzzled me

    DKA: Web apps group done a lot of work...
    ... both BP1 and BP2 based on the idea that you have information
    about the device and you build UI based on that knowledge
    ... how you get that device knowledge? maybe that's why we try to be
    away from that

    Bryan: Other group is working on..
    ... This group is working on...

    DKA: didn't your ... Browser is a web application, little semantic

    Bryan: I looked at phone widgets and other widgets, they all
    disclose information about their identity and capability in the

    DKA: Maybe I am wrong, but we assumed that you have a device
    ... we have agreed to explore in the document...In BP 2, we agreed
    to specify device knowledge you need

    Bryan: how to differentiate from one vendor to the other

    DKA: talking about adding something to the response header

    Bryan: I was referring to the HTTP request and if you look at XHR,
    you'll see that the ability to add on the User-Agent, Accept headers
    is there
    ... weak identity
    .... you can also tweak the Accept header.

    DKA: we need some public feedback
    ... we need to document that issue in the draft and seek public

    Jo: I don't see emergency in this, I don't see the use case right
    now, because web apps talk to their mother server

    ... you have all the capabilities of all those APIs

    Jo: we can't talk about a recommendation that does not exist today
    ... we cannot just guess

    DKA: any other comments?

    Francois: amending the HTTP User-Agent to identify the Web App could
    be useful when there is a Content Transformation proxy on the line
    to tell that it is not intended for browsing, intended to be
    processed by Web apps, a real use case? don't have a clear opinion

    DKA: there might be some arguments...Need feedback
    ... it's clear you could do...
    ... it makes sense to seek for public feedback

    Bryan: I can also raise a issue, I can't see how...
