Letter from ISO JTC1/SC 34/WG4

    AB: On 29 December, Mohamed ZERGAOUI sent WebApps an letter (
    00.html ) on behalf of ISO SC34/WG4. The letter notes some
    similarities between our widget packaging spec and their Open
    Packaging Conventions spec.
    ... I have not read the OPC spec; anyone read it?

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

    MC: I read it

    AB: anything you want to share about it?

    MC: during our req gathering phase, we discussed similarities
    ... I have refs to the original emails
    ... this was mentioned by IBM (JonF)
    ... it was at least 2 years ago
    ... a conclusion was that ISO should start a ISO ZIP WG
    ... but don't know if that started or not
    ... I think ISO should create an ISO ZIP spec
    ... it would be good to get a real ZIP standard
    ... and not just some PKWare spec

    AB: I recall those conversations with JonF on this subject

    <timeless_mbp> Zakim: +??p12 is me

Status of URI Scheme spec

    SP: should this ISO be coordinated via HCG?

    ... I can forward it to HCG and seek comments

      [18] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets-vmmf/

    MH: last month I commented on VF's related input
    ... I am in the process of reflecting those comments in the spec
    ... but only a local copy now
    ... I will have something to review in a week
    ... the VF proposal included some interfaces
    ... that will need to be addressed in the context of the VM-I spec

    AB: any status on VM-I status to report?

    MH: it needs to be developed in paralle with VM-MF spec
    ... should be ready for a CfC on FPWD of VM-I within a week or two

    AB: an action to all to reveiew VM-I spec in the context of "is it
    ready for FPWD" (
    [19]http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets-vm/vm-interfaces.src.html )

      [19] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets-vm/vm-interfaces.src.html

    MH: re, the VM-I spec, it resembles D3E spec
    ... I may move VM-I to ReSpec but D3E is probably too big to move

    <drogers> sorry I have a small comment

    DR: re VM-MF or VM-I, doesn't have a Sec Consids sec
    ... will both have a Sec Consids section?

    MH: VM-I does not have such a section yet
    ... it's still early and one can be added

    DR: I'll look into what could be added

    MH: It's OK with me if we add such a section to VM-I

    MC: I expect to restart work on it next week
    ... hope to get it ready for a new pub by end of the month
