SML WG Teleconference Agenda 2007-06-21 - Updated

John and I would like to add the following item to the agenda.


Discuss the following proposal to get to LC on 10/31/07 since hitting LC by Sept 07 will be very difficult given the issues raised during the Redmond F2F

a.       7/31/07 - 1st Working Draft of the SML and SML IF specs. Typos and low-hanging bugs fixed,  SML spec must be refactored to clearly separate the normative and non-normative sections. This will allow enough time for the spec to be reviewed (both by WG members and by the community at large) before the August F2F in Toronto

b.      9/19/07  - 2nd working draft with most known issues resolved. This allows enough time for us to request XML Schema WG to provide comments, plus drive consensus on the few remaining open issues before the October F2F

c.       10/31/07 - LC


This will be discussed after Item 4.
