   <trackbot> ISSUE-54 -- tools that can't generate <!DOCTYPE html> --

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/54



   <trackbot> ACTION-103 -- Lachlan Hunt to register about: URI scheme
   -- due 2009-09-24 -- PENDINGREVIEW

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/actions/103


   mjs: we should file an issue in the HTML5 CR component

   <paulc> BTW Action-147 from Paul is still outstanding


   masinter: there comments on this that the author hasn't responded to

   mjs: any volunteers to report on it?
   ... otherwise, I am OK with closing the action

   <paulc> I changed due date on ACTION-147 to next week.

   mjs: the action came about because we added about:legacy-compat as a
   part of the "legacy" doctype for XSLT engines to generate

   masinter: but the draft of the about: scheme registration didn't
   even mention about:legacy-compat
   ... is there a way to track this differently?

   anne2: we have a bunch of similar cases of scheme registrations that
   we will need to deal with, this is not unique

   mjs: yeah, we don't need to track this separately, so seems like we
   can close this action

   masinter: point is to check the normative references and see if they
   have progressed
   ... even of the URI documents are not approved, still want to be
   able to track -- just asking

   mjs: part of what we need to do before PR transition is check all
   the normative references ourselves

   masinter: just trying to figure out how we plan to keep track of the
   technical dependencies

   close action-103

   <trackbot> ACTION-103 Register about: URI scheme closed

   <paulc> I expect we will get LC comments on the exact references and
   their status.

   mjs: any other comments?

New issues this week


   <trackbot> ISSUE-81 -- Offline Web Applications section should use
   the term "representation" instead of "resource" -- RAISED

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/81


   mjs: bunch of discussion on the list, mostly a matter of word choice

   <anne2> paulc, yeah, we just need to check it every now and then,
   but it goes for a lot of the references

   mjs: anybody have anything to say on this issue?

   masinter: I think I'll comment on the list -- there's the URL
   terminology but this is separate... issue really is -- if you
   consider it an issue -- about whether it's a problem to have the
   same terms used differently in this document as compared to existing

   <Zakim> Julian, you wanted to say that it's also about the spec
   being inconsistent in itself

   masinter: and confused use of resource vs representation can lead to
   problems in discussion of, e.g., conneg

   Julian: it's also a problem in that use of the term "resource" is
   internally inconsistent in the spec itself

   mjs: other comments?


   <trackbot> ISSUE-82 -- Suggested replacement for head/@profile does
   not provide for disambiguation -- RAISED

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/82


   mjs: this is about details of the UA processing requirements for


   <trackbot> ISSUE-83 -- Use of the dt and dd elements in figure and
   details content models -- RAISED

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/83


   mjs: this is capturing the objection that this reuse of dt and dd
   extends their semantics
   ... any comments?


   <trackbot> ISSUE-84 -- Should spec discourage use of "legacy"
   doctypes? -- RAISED

   <trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/84


   mjs: we discussed the about:legacy form of the doctype

   Julian, is this about about:legacy doctype or about the XHTML 1.0
   and HTML 4.01 doctypes?

   <mjs> End of section 9.1.1

   <anne2> "The DOCTYPE legacy string should not be used unless the
   document is generated from a system that cannot output the shorter

   <anne2> "

   <Julian> Mike, originally the former

   <anne2> --


   Julian: I raised it because of the about:legacy doctype, but in
   discussion about this on IRC, the point was made that it doesn't
   make sense to discourage any conforming doctypes that trigger
   standards mode

Status of Call For Consensus emails

   mjs: I sent a CfC: Create Testing Task Force message
   ... so if you have objections or comments, follow up to that e-mail
   ... any questions or comments now?
   ... I also sent a CfC: Create HTML Accessibility Task Force message
   ... but I did not cite the actual work statement
   ... paulc followed up by posting a link to the actual work statement
   ... and I will follow up to make clear that everybody should review
   the actual work statement
   ... my mistake..
   ... questions or comments?

Scribe for next meeting

   mjs: I think rubys will be chairing
   ... I you volunteer to scribe, you will receive many 11brownie

   plh, you volunteering?

   <plh> yes, I volunteered

   scribe will be plh

   mjs: any final questions or comments before we adjourn?

   masinter: there will be an IETF meeting the week after the TPAC

   <paulc> special hotel rate for TPAC expires on Oct 12.
