* gsnedders does it for krisk :P
<krisk> I can scribe
<krisk> meeting: htmltf
<krisk> scribe: krisk
<krisk> present: gsnedders krisk jgriffin
<gsnedders> For some definition of present :)
<krisk> looks like it's just us 3 at the meeting
<krisk> The first item was to ask about was an update on  Mecurial
<krisk> I'll ping phillip post the meeting about this action item (
<krisk> I ask for some connection information and once it appears to work I'll make a post to the list
<krisk> jgriffin will take action item (ref test example)
<krisk> jgriffin states that mozilla uses the canvas -> data url api from HTML5
<krisk> is that for only canvas or the whole window content
<jgriffin> it's for the canvas, which contains a copy of the test window's contents
<krisk> how about you come back with a simple example - can you do this?
<krisk> I'll update the tracker date for another 2 weeks
<krisk> gsnedders - any feedbck on this action item?
<gsnedders> What action item?
<gsnedders> 6?
<krisk> yes
<krisk> jgriffin will take ownership and come back with an example that uses canvas apis to validate the test case
<gsnedders> Not much. That seems sensible
<krisk> gsnedders any update to the parser tests?
<gsnedders> Oh, I was going to ask what you meant about the content sniffing?
<gsnedders> But I'm generally very busy with 10.50 and the impending beta
<krisk> basically if you look at the byte stream you can detect that it's an image and even that it's a bitmap, etc
<gsnedders> OK, so content-type sniffing? That's not ion HTML 5 any more.
<krisk> ok
<gsnedders> I thought what I agreed to was just general HTML parsing tests, throw together something about formats, and what html5lib does
<krisk> that is fine - can you update the tracker item with your view?
<gsnedders> Sure
<krisk> thx
<krisk> The next part of the meeting I wanted to discuss leveraging the old DOM HTML Test suite for the HTML5 Test Suite
<gsnedders> If we're gonna discuss that, let me phone in actually
<gsnedders> Zakim, what's the code?
<Zakim> sorry, gsnedders, I don't know what conference this is
<gsnedders> Zakim, this is htmlt
<Zakim> ok, gsnedders; that matches HTML_WG(HTMLT)11:00AM
<krisk> try Time 16:00-17:00 UTC (11:00am-12:00pm Boston local) Zakim Bridge +1.617.761.6200, conference 48658
<gsnedders> Zakim, what's the code?
<Zakim> the conference code is 48658 (tel:+1.617.761.6200 tel:+ tel:+44.117.370.6152), gsnedders
* gsnedders wanted the GB code
<Zakim> +gsnedders
<krisk> I'd like to move parts - not specifically the harness
<krisk> gsnedders concerned that some tests are not too usefull and/or vauge
<krisk> thats why I don't think it would be wise to move the whole suite
<krisk> gsnedders thinks it alot of work to re-use that write tests from scratch
<krisk> I think that means gsnedders doesn't want this action item (laughter on phone....)
<gsnedders> More just that I think we're going to have to spend a lot of time reviewing them to ensure they have a good clear pass condition, that they match the HTML 5 psec, etc.
<gsnedders> I think we're better off spending the time just writing new tests, because I think that'll take more time than it would to just write an exhausive test suite from the HTML 5 spec.
<gsnedders> (That's basically what I meant by what I said on the phone)
<krisk> any other feedback on this?
<krisk> would you be open to using these tests - if indeed that appeared to have some value and helped overall browser interop?
<krisk> any other items that people wanted to discuss or bring up?
<Zakim> -gsnedders
<Zakim> - +1.425.220.aaaa
<krisk> sound like this is it for this meeting
<krisk> RRSAgent, make minutes
<RRSAgent> I have made the request to generate krisk
