Agenda 2010-10-19

Hi all,

Conditional on whether Eric as the main editor of the fed draft can join us, I would like to continue where we stopped last time, discussing some of the federation issues. Basically what I would like to see is that Greg guides us roughly through his comments, and then we may be able to discuss a bit further Carlos' proposal of certainly bounded vars. As this is a time-allowed feature, I don't want to spend too much time discussing here, but rather see whether we can have a way foreward, i.e. let's fix time to a max of 15-20min.

Second bigger issue we need to get going again is test cases, I made some fixes in the test case structure doc, which I'd kindly ask for review. Further, let's see whether we can - at least conditionally the minor changes in the test case structure doc - approve some test cases.

Finally, let's see if we get to the aggregates issues we already had on the last week's agenda, and I also  put the discussion on GROUPing and SELECT * related to potentially bound variables also on the agenda, (aware that we probably won't get that far this week, but not to forget it...)
