Review and Tweak Agenda

    AB: agenda published January 14... it is
    ... DigSig not on the agenda because FH and TLR are at the XML
    Security WG's f2f meeting this week
    ... one change I propose is to move Testing to the beginning of the
    meeting so Kai doesn't have to stay on the entire call

    implementing parts of the Widgets specs

P&C Last Call WD

    AB: formal comments from Boris and Jere

    UNKNOWN_SPEAKER: We can discuss any particular Hot Topic and/or

    AB: Boris
    ... one area of continued concern is the HTML5 dependency
    ... Borris' comment #4 raises this issue
    ... HTML5 isn't going to reach REC for some time, unfortuantely
    ... our options are somewhat limited

      [17] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/ 

    Arve: I'm OK with us referencing those parts of HTML5 that are
    ... perhaps we need to clearly identify those specs in WebApps that
    have a dependency on HTML and give them to Hixie

    AB: any other comments on HTML5 dependency issue?


    AB: any comments on Borris' input?
    ... clearly it indicates we neet to tighten up the spec
    ... I didn't see anything I would characterize as a "Show Stopper"
    ... surely Marcos will reply but anyone else should feel free to
    reply too
    ... Jere sent comments:

      [18] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/ 

    JK: I expect Marcos to reply

    AB: are there any particularly urgent comments, Marcos?

    JK: comment #1 is a bit urgent because it could affect the testing
    re localization

    AB: thanks for sending these comments

    JK: re comment #5, were there discussions about just using one
    config doc for the whole widget rather than a config per locale?

    AB: some orgs use different groups to do their localization so
    keeping them separate works well with those business arrangements
    ... and munging everything into a single config file can be

    Arve: also can expect things such as layout to vary depending on

    JK: if anyone has a ptr to past discussions, I would appreciate
    ... think there is a need for more information about how to handle
    merging when more than one config file is used

    Arve: think we need to hear from Marcos

    AB: any other comments about Jere's email?

    Arve: we still have a few Red Blocks in the spec
    ... some changes to HTML5 need to discussed before we move fwd with
    our spec
    ... I need to review the changes Hixie has made
    ... his changes potentially will affect what we want to specifiy
