Hi all,

cf. the minutes from the last meeting; I've set up a tracking bug[0] for open
issues for the 0.7.0 release.

  [0] — <http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=856>

Existing bugs relevant to 0.7 have been added as blocker on this bug, and I'm
filing new TODO/MUSTFIX stuff with blockers on it as well. To nominate any
other stuff (new or old) for fixing in 0.7, add a blocker on that bug.

Not everything that's there will necessarily make it for 0.7; and if there is
anything in particular that you want to nuke then make a comment to that
effect on Bug #856.

It'd also be good if you make notes for the release notes in comments there,
at least if you come up with anything that needs specific mention above
«Closed Bug #555»; e.g. we have to note specifically if we bump Perl
requirement to > 5.8, or make changes in app behaviour.

Current State and Major Issues:

  * New config system is half way in. There's stuff still using the old
    config files, and little that actually takes advantage of the new

  * Cleanup of DTDs (plus fallout from above) has left us with missing
    support for quite a few document types; notably SVG, MathML, SMIL, etc.

  * Templates want another redesign in how they're structured and used.
    The files and internal structure is really messy still. And bugs...

  * I18N is hinted at but not actually implemented in any meaningfull way.

There's more, but we'll need time and testing to flush them out; this is all I
can specifically list so far. In particular, there are some nifty new features
that the new config stuff enables, and which we get «for cheap» (in terms of
development cost), that we may want to consider doing for 0.7. We'll see when
this has had time to gel a bit more and how we're doing for time.

This closes out my relevant AI.

definitions are wrong, and possibly the product of a deranged imagination.
