XML Test Suite
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-test-suite

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

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

Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.0 and

Richard has partially updated the NS PE doc at

Richard added some discussion at
The WG agreed with his direction and asked that he go forward with it.

ACTION to Richard:  Fill in a proposed resolution for NPE29.

ACTION to Richard:  Add an NPE changing URIs to IRIs in NS 1.0.

In NS 1.0, NCName is defined to start with NCNameStartChar
which is defined in NS 1.0 at
to be 	Letter | '_'
where Letter is defined in XML 1.0, and Letter in XML 1.0 5th Ed
does not include all the characters allowed as the initial character
of a Name in XML 1.0 5th Ed.

We could redefine NS 1.0 NCName as Name (from XML) without colon
and leave the now orphaned NCNameChar and NCNameStartChar
productions in case other specs reference them--we may need
to update them appropriately to reflect XML 1.0 5th Ed changes.

ACTION to Henry and Richard:  Make a specific proposal for
changing the NS 1.0 spec to address this NCNameStartChar problem.

We need to be sure we check back with James on our suggested

The WG Note defining LEIRIs is at

The mailing list for comments is wrong.

ACTION to Henry:  Fix the LEIRI WG Note's SOTD to point to
xml-editor for the comments.

XML Base 2nd Edition 2nd PER
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-base

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

XLink 1.1
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xlink1.1

The XLink 1.1 Last Call has been published at

The LC review period ended 16 May 2008.

Norm has prepared a DoC at 

ACTION to Henry:  Continue to get the XSD for
XLink at an accessible URI.

There's an open question about whether the XSD/DTD 
should default the xlink:type attribute value. 
None of this effects our last call because the
XSD/DTD are not normative.

John asked whether we should have two schemas, one for
each of our conformance levels.

ACTION to Henry, John:  Think about having a basic level
conformance XSD for XLink.

Paul asks us to consider skipping CR and going directly to PR.

ACTION to Henry:  Review the history and make a recommendation
as to whether we should skip CR and go directly to PR.

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:

ACTION to Daniel: Produce a PER-ready draft of XInclude 3rd Ed
with appropriate references to the IRI RFC for LEIRIs.
