   McCool: any objection to publish the minutes?
   ... ok approved

TPAC breakout

   McCool: we have a general WoT video, the question is what to
   display in the Breakout
   ... we may have more time there ~1h
   ... we need a clear explanation and show case. we can submit a
   long video with contributions from a bunch of people
   ... we can relay on the plug fest to collect those
   ... to go forward I think it is better to create an issue in
   the marketing repo

   Cristiano: what will be the content of those videos?

   McCool: typically, people show what they are working on.
   Voiceover may be fine if you are working on something abstract.
   For example a directory service

   Cristiano: the challenge here is consistency. people will
   provide different video types and style

   McCool: we can deal with it using regulations like time limits,
   one single voice over etc.

   Kaz: also we can create basic guidelines

   McCool: like for example use WoT template slide

   Kaz: we can split the video into different parts. Usually,
   during our physical PlugFests, we have different tables where
   people talk about their demos
   ... we may group them for some specific use case

   McCool: we can make individual pieces and then make a logical
   sequence between those.

   Kaz: I suggest we make an introduction section (by McCool
   and/or Sebastian).
   ... also a conclusion section

   McCool: they probably overlap heavily with the 3 minute video
   that we already have.
   ... I'm referring to the explainer video.

   Kaz: explainer video should be renamed introduction video

   McCool: right
   ... I'll create a folder to jumpstart the contributions.

   Kaz: I've been working with a video editor application called
   "Shotcut". Maybe we can use that kind of video editing software
   for this purpose. (am happy to help :)

   McCool: please check also the rights of background music if you
   use it

   Kaz: maybe we can try to create a WoT song ourselves :)


   <kaz> [10]Issue 47

     [10] https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/issues/47

   McCool: issue 47 we have some feedback from Koster
   ... we should have a SPARQL capable directory
   ... we can define a geolocation rdf file
   ... also I'd like to improve node-red integration with the
   ability to group objects by their capabilities
   ... the first problem is to create the annotated TDs
   ... they should be ready before the PlugFest
   ... we can reuse what we already have
   ... however the codebase is pretty old
   ... In general we do not have a large amount of TDs

   <kaz> [11]TDs for PlugFest in June, 2020

     [11] https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/tree/master/events/2020.06.Online/TDs

   Cristiano: can we create a script to convert old TDs?

   McCool: they are not many we can probably to it manually.
   ... the point is that we need to start collecting TDs as early
   as possible
   ... also they should be associated with a working system
   ... however for semantic search we can probably get away with
   TDs that are not online
   ... I can create an issue about collecting TDs

   Cristiano: it might be nice to have an automated action to
   check if a PR contains a not valid TD

   McCool: I have a script. I plan to use it offline (i.e. not
   from Github)


     [12] https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/tree/master/events/plugfest

   Kaz: next step should be asking people to volunteer

   McCool: yes, if you have TDs you are welcomed to fill a PR

   Kaz: it would be nice if we could reuse the old TDs for the
   latest spec


   McCool: any news about VPN?

   Tomoura: the server is working

   McCool: ok so everything it working as before
   ... there still a bunch of things that I have to fill to make
   it works better
   ... Toumura did you test the client also?

   Toumura: yes, I tested one client

   McCool: next step is to connect a second client and see if they
   ... in the next Discovery call I plan to talk more about SPARQL
   ... ok, we are done
