Hi all:

I'll be leaving the Forms Working Group, effective this week. I've taken a 
new position within IBM's Rational division, which will be quite different 
from the position I've held the last few years dealing with SOA standards 
and client/forms markup technologies and tooling.

I will be on this week's telecon to introduce my colleague Keith Wells, 
who will be joining the group in my stead. Keith has worked with me for 
nearly two years on XForms technologies, including the Eclipse-based tools 
on IBM alphaWorks, as well as a variety of forms demonstrations for 
customers and industry-vertical standards organizations like ACORD, HL7 
and MISMO. Among other things, he will be able to pick up the test suite 
work without any "bumps in the road" as we approach the wrap-up of XForms 

I'm excited about my new opportunity, but have mixed feelings about having 
to leave the working group. XForms is an important and very interesting 
technology, and it has been a great pleasure to get to know all of the 
working group members.

Now, a little bookkeeping ... below is the list of the action items 
assigned to me which are listed as having a status of "open" in Nick's 
most-recent update. I have copied the table of items below and updated the 
"Status"column for each.

Date Created 
Jan Kratky 

Jan Kratky to provide support for XForms 1.0 Basic Profile test suite 
feature list. 
CLOSE. The test suite provides the ability to filter for those cases which 
are required for XForms-Basic implementations.
Action 2007-03-07.2 
Jan Kratky to update schema for XForms 1.1 thin spec changes. 
2006 08 16
TRANSFER to Mark Birbeck, who has taken responsibility for the Schemas 
some time ago.
Action 2006 08 16.2 
Jan to review current version of chameleon schemas created by MarkB. 
Action 2006-03-02.9 
Jan to work to document mechanism to achieve an internal versioning 
mechanism for XForms 1.1 based on profile="xforms 1.1 svg 1.2" 
solution/hasFeature/CDF work. 
CLOSE. The original intent of this was for me to investigate whether the 
CDF working group had any suggestions here. I reported some time ago that 
they do not handle this issue.
Action 2006-03-02.8 
Jan to create test for <bind nodeset="x"><bind calculate=".."/></bind> 
after erratum is published 
TRANSFER to Keith. I have to admit that I haven't checked whether this 
erratum has been published. If it has, it is likely that this has already 
been done.
Action 2005-09-08.28 
Jan to do more research on where it is appropriate for <ev:listener> to be 
TRANSFER to Keith. This is post-1.1 work.
Action 2005-02-28.24 
Action Jan will move <message> out of actions but is not yet sure where 
TRANSFER to Keith or possibly to Mark Birbeck (schema work). This is 
post-1.1 work.

Also, we have been discussing mustUnderstand and extension recently. Here 
is a link to my earlier attempt to initiate that discussion:
