     * [14]Summary of Action Items


  Accept this agenda?

   -> [15]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/2009/07/16-agenda


  Accept minutes from the previous meeting?

   -> [16]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/2009/07/02-minutes


  Next meeting: telcon 23 July 2009

   No regrets heard.

  Implicit output ports on p:declare-step

   Norm: We agreed to wait two weeks, I haven't seen any discussion. Any
   discussion now?

   Proposed: Change the spec to state that the implicit output port binding
   does not apply to p:declare-step.


  Add [c:]encoding to the output p:data

   Norm: Also held over from two weeks ago.
   ... I haven't seen anything about this either, any discussion?

   Proposed: Add the attribute.


  Storing to a non-existing directory

   Norm: What do we want to do in this case. For the record, Saxon at least,
   creates the path.

   Vojtech: We don't create the path at the moment. We overwrite existing
   files, too.

   Norm: I don't think I create the path either.

   Alex: Why isn't this implementation defined?

   Vojtech: If you can't create the path, then at the moment you can't create
   the directory.

   Norm: As an implementor, I'm tempted to create the path, but I don't have
   any problem with making it implementation defined.
   ... Three choices: MUST NOT, MUST try, or implementation-defined.

   Alex: I'm for implementation-defined.

   Proposed: Make this explicitly implementation-defined.

   Alex: Do we have an error code for this?

   Norm: I think it would be err:XD0021.

   Alex: Doesn't have permissions isn't the same as doesn't exist. So it
   might be handy.

   Vojtech: There's also err:XC0050 in p:store which is specifically for the
   case where p:store couldn't store to that location.

   Norm: Right.

   Alex: So do we say when you should throw which?

   Norm: I think we give implementors pretty blanket freedom to throw 21
   whenever they want.

   Any objections to the proposal to make it implementation-defined?

   None heard. Accepted.

  141: xsl:message output from p:xslt

   Norm: I don't think we want to do anything here, but I thought I'd raise

   Some discussion of how messages may or may not be like stderr on p:exec.

   Henry: So he could run the transformation by exec and grab stderr?

   Norm: I suppose that would work.

   Proposed: Close with no action.


  Default processing model progess?

   Norm: Henry, any progress?

   Henry: No, I've had other W3C priorities.

   Norm: Ok. We'll leave it on the agenda.

  Test suite progress?

   Norm: It's important that we have a complete test suite if we want to get
   out of CR.

   Vojtech: I made progress with serialization in my implementation, so I'll
   be writing new tests there soon.

  Any other business?

   Congratulations Vojtech on the release of your processor!

   No other business heard.
