A report of the outcome is at:

We had productive discussions during our f2f--see:

We are planning to drop Appendix A and augment the prose
in 2.4.  Frederick will send updated wording suggestions
for this section by mid-week.  Glenn will incorporate into
the draft.

ACTION to Frederick: Update the redline version with our 
latest decisions and resend to the groups by Nov 14.

ACTION to Glenn: Produce a new editor's draft reflecting 
the changes suggested in Frederick's updated redline. 

We noticed a problem in the merging process where 'Base' 
argument to join-uris ends with "..". 

ACTION to Thomas and Frederick: Get implementors to run 
this new test case and report the results.

4.  xml:base, [baseURI], and IRIs -> HRRIs -> LEIRIs

The (Second Edition) XML Base PER has been published at

It's now waiting for us to say what should happen next--whether 
we want a Director's call now or not.

We need to remember to correct the IP part of the Status section per

Mike Kay thinks the defn of XML Resource Identifier is too vague. 

4.5.  HRRIs -> LEIRIs

The latest HRRI draft was published as an ID on May 14 at

The most recent editor's draft is at

Henry sent email to I18N Core suggesting our LEIRI solution at

Martin's latest IRI draft (defining LEIRIs in section 7) is at 

We've exchanged some email with Martin about some details,  see
but in general it looks like we'll be happy with the definition of
LEIRIs in the new IRI RFC.  There are a few outstanding issues; see

Scheduling for the revised IRI RFC is still unclear.

5.  XLink update.

The XLink CR was published at

The latest almost PR-ready XLink draft is at

Norm posted a DoC at

Paul wrote a SECOND draft PR request at

ACTION to Norm:  Complete resolution of DoC.

ACTION to WG (need volunteer):  Update the Implementation Report.

ACTION to Norm:  Produce PR-ready draft.

ACTION to Norm:  Produce diff/review version.

HOWEVER, the actions here are pending until we get the HRRI
RFC since we plan to reference it from XLink.

6. XML 1.0/1.1 4th/2nd Editions published 2006 August 16:

 Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Fourth Edition)

 Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.1 (Second Edition)

Henry/Richard discussed the test suite issues raised by Frans Englich:

These need to be resolved. 

Richard reports that the 2005 issue has been resolved in the latest

The one from 2006, character references with numbers with dozens 
of digits, may not be. 

ACTION: Richard to construct a test case for these issues.

 Namespaces in XML 1.0 (Second Edition)

 Namespaces in XML 1.1 (Second Edition)

Richard has recorded Anne's issue/proposed resolution at

8. XML 1.0 5th Edition

I had sent out email at
and we have gotten very little response--see

We had some discussion at our f2f--see

We appear to have unofficial agreement by most implementors
to consider making this change if it goes through the W3C

Paul talked to Ian Jacobs who suggested the best way to 
make this change is to issue an XML 1.0 5th Edition PER 
with a relatively long review period.  (Note, by doing so, 
we don't really open the discussion of whether this is an 
erratum or not, so the new title for this discussion is 
"XML 1.0 5th Edition".)

Whether we allow XML 1.0 processors to accept documents 
labelled version="1.1" is separate from the name char issue, 
and we don't know if we are going to try to do that in this 
erratum too.  Thoughts?

We asked if unlabelled documents would remain 1.0 or not. 
MSM would like to say an unlabelled document can be attempted 
to be processed by any processor whereas right now an unlabelled 
document can only be a 1.0 document (since the XML declaration 
is required by XML 1.1).  Thoughts?
