George’s plan sounds great as the general plan for EPUB 3.2….but I don’t see the ISO connection with it.

1 – As Makoto has pointed out in his document, you can only take W3C RECs to ISO.  CG documents can’t be “brought across” to ISO (using the liaison channel).

Actually, see this W3C Note, which is also published as ISO/IEC 19757-11.

http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-model/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FTR%2Fxml-model%2F&data=02%7C01%7Clrosenth%40adobe.com%7Cc0ec98f010ea4a21eebb08d59f4efea0%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636590084053305040&sdata=3LAb%2FyabvfQ8st92s6LrIk%2FnzrBudGtQdujPD6MmIwA%3D&reserved=0>


2 – ISO doesn’t do free standards.  They make their $$ selling standards (since membership is free, for the most part).  So if this is an problem, you should face that fact.
NOTE: individual member bodies (aka countries) can, however, make standards available to their members for a reduced price (or free!).  For example, ANSI (in the US) does this for a few standards.

A number of ISO/IEC standards are freely available.  They
include 19757-2 (RELAX NG), 19757-3 (Schematron), 19757-7 (NVDL),
19757-11, 29500-1/4 (OOXML), and 26300-1/3 (ODF).  They are
freely available since they were initially published and made freely
available by other organizations.

Regards,
Makoto

I think that George’s plan is excellent, but shouldn’t there is an item for extending EPUBCheck to cover 3.2?  I think we all agree on this needs, but seems like it should be part of the plan. Of course, these three items (I.e. 3, 4 and 4b) are a LOT of work, but what of that?  :-)

+ 100 to this plan.
Epub 3.2 will have the media cover and the Asian industry will be able to rely on an compatible ISO standard in a correct timeframe.

Dear All,

Based onMakoto’s email below and our lengthy discussion on the call today, I thought I would put down my thoughts:

Approach


  1.  Move briskly forward to develop EPUB 3.2 as a W3C CG Report, i.e. the Standard we recommend.
  2.  Also update the Accessibility Spec to version 1.1  and submit as a CG report
  3.  Develop a robust test suite for EPUB 3.2 that will also help our rec track PWG
  4.  Develop Rachel’s Best practices (oops probably not called Rachael’s)
  5.  Marcket  the heck out of3.2 as being backward compatible as the current Standard.
  6.  In ISO get assurances that the standards will be freely available and may also be available from W3C
  7.  Ask Makoto to move forward with option 4, see below


Option 4: International Standards for EPUB 3.0.1 (fast-track) and EPUB A11Y 1.0 (normal process)
list of 4 items
• Estimated timeline: The target date is middle 2020. (The fast-track DIS ballot for EPUB 3.0.1 requires 6 months and the comment disposition requires
a few months. EPUB A11Y requires a CD ballot and a DIS ballot, at least.)
• Pros: Not-so-late publication

  *   No language in the EPUB 3.0.1 spec needs to be rewritten (Makoto please confirm)
• Cons: EPUB A11Y is required to be rewritten in the ISO/IEC style, although it is short.
• Cons: Might hamper the adoption of 3.2.

While EPUB 3.0.1 being an ISO standard could in theory hamper 3.2 adoption, because of the backward compatability of 3.2 with 3.01, plus the marketing in support of 3.2, plus the best practices in 3.2, plus the Ace supporting 3.2, , plus the new epubcheck supporting 3.2, I think we are in good shape.

That’s my thoughts and I am sure there are things missing.

Best
George

Dear colleagues,

On May 16, SC34/JWG7 will have a comment
resolution meting for the Proposed Draft Techical
Specifications Ballot of EPUB 3.0.1 (PDTS 30135 -1
to 6).  We have to choose either Option 4 or 5 before
this meeting.  We can take more time for Options 1, 2,
and 3.

Makoto

Dear colleagues,

This meeting is mainly for the comment disposition of ISO/IEC PDTS
30135-1/66 (EPUB 3.0.1) and that of ISO/IEC PDTS 22424-1/2 (EPUB3
preservation).

The meeting announcement and draft agenda are available at:

These documents are not available to the public.  I believe
that TPI members have access to these documents.

I am sure that this meeting will care the input from W3C
very seriously.  After the last meeting, I created a list
of possible options for the standardization of EPUB
3.0.1/3.2.  Is it possible to reach consensus on the
choice of several options, available at:

https://github.com/w3c/publ-a11y/wiki/Five-options-for-creating-ISO-IEC-specifications<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fw3c%2Fpubl-a11y%2Fwiki%2FFive-options-for-creating-ISO-IEC-specifications&data=02%7C01%7Clrosenth%40adobe.com%7C0c01d2c9696d4c8583ab08d59f1c05f0%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C1%7C636589865068242926&sdata=qiq%2Fvz5Dj%2BsGxtR895YrANij4%2B5PLEa1DUtJfSESYBg%3D&reserved=0>
