   Skipping 27 Nov, US Thanksgiving.

   No regrets heard.

  Fixing static context before CR


   Norm explains the situation and proposes to strike "or made available
   through p:namespaces"


  Fixing p:wrap match="/"

   Norm explains that it's only about user convenience.

   Henry suggests that since XSLT 2.0 allows something similar, we should

   Alex: I agree with Henry

   Norm: If you match /, you get all the nodes in the document.

   Mohamed: Is it the only place where we should do this?

   Norm: After a quick check, I don't see any others that make any sense.

   Proposal: Make the change.

   Mohamed: What about www-form-url-encode.

   Norm: Well...www-form-url-encode does allow match=/, but will invariably
   produce a dynamic error if you do that.


  Allow extension steps to use c: namespace

   See: [17]http://exproc.org/proposed/steps/

   Norm: I think we should allow people to reuse the c: namespace.

   Alex: I wouldn't want to restrict what people can produce from their

   Mohamed: We have three namespaces, on two of them we explicitly don't want
   people to reuse them.

   Richard: What about in inline documents?

   Norm: We're pretty clear that content in an inline is just content and we
   don't care what it is.

   Mohamed: If we used the c: namespace and we use an element that's already
   been defined in this specification, can we add an attribute to it?

   Henry: I think we should just say that common sense suggests that such
   usages shouldn't overlap with the uses defined in this spec. unless the
   usage is identical.

   Alex: I'm with Henry.

   Mohamed: Today we don't mandate that if you extend the output of an
   existing step, you must use an extension attribute. So you could put a
   @type on c:result and that might effect interoperability.

   Norm: This is a bigger can of worms than I thought, perhaps we shouldn't
   say anything.
   ... If we do this later, does it push us back in the process?

   Henry: No, how could it effect the conformance of an implementation. This
   isn't a big deal.

   <richard> X crashed :-(

   Norm: So do we want to try to nail this down today, or come back to it

   Henry: I'm fine to come back later

   Mohamed: Me too.

   Norm: Ok, we'll leave this.

  Any other comments on the CR draft.

   -> [18]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/CR-xproc-20081126/

   Norm: Any comments?

   Mohamed: Congratulations!

   Norm: Congrats to us all.

  Any other business?

   Mohamed: What's the future work?

   Norm: We need to get the test suite finished, we need to encourage
   implementors, and we need to turn our attention to the default XML
   processing model.
