  Review of open action items

   Norm: I culled a lot of items

   Henry: I haven't looked at 215-02
   ... I will
   ... I was working on 215-04 as the call started and will finish today

   Norm: Alex, do you want to work on the use cases you're assigned?

   Alex: Yes, I think those are good ones in the mix.
   ... I think we need to sort through all the work we did earlier. I think
   we should publish that as a note.
   ... I'm not going to get to that real soon.

   Norm: I think you're right

   Alex: I'm happy to do that after I get back from Prague

   <scribe> ACTION: Norm to resurface getting the original use
   cases/requirements document refactored into a Note after XML Prague
   [recorded in [16]http://www.w3.org/2013/01/24-xproc-minutes.html#action01]

   Norm: I'll still draft a note for my steps and we should put zip/unzip
   back on the list, I guess

   <scribe> ACTION: Norm to put p:zip/p:unzip steps on the agenda post-XML
   Prague [recorded in

  XML Processor Profiles review

   -> [18]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/xml-proc-profiles.html

   Norm: Let's cut to the chase if we can, are the two actions on *this*
   agenda, all that's left to be done?
   ... I tried to go through the actions, the comments that Alex posted, and
   the document and I thought I got everything.


   WG discusses the state of affairs

   Norm wonders, wrt [20]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/2012/03/15-minutes, if
   the note in 2.3 would simply be: "The external decl profile, without
   validation, gives the complete infoset of a well-formed XML document, wtih
   validation, it gives the complete infoset of a well-formed, and validate


   Henry: Yes, I think just add that to the end of the note I added.
   ... But it's not actually true. If you interpret the external decl profile
   with validation as meaning use a validating processor that processes
   external decl then you may not get anything.

   Norm: Ok, with a note to the effect that an invalid document won't return
   an infoset.

   Alex: Depends on the validation: DTD or Schema.

   Norm: Ok, I'll be careful about that
   ... And we could add the note that Henry refers to after that in those
   ... Should I try both of those things?

   Alex: Sounds good to me.

   <jfuller> +1

   Henry: The way the proposed text above is written, the distinction we want
   to make is validating processor. A non-validating processor conformant to
   th EDP, gives the complete infoset of a document. A validating processor
   may give nothing, but if it gives something, it will..."

   Alex: We say "parser" instead of processor in the note in 2.1

   Henry: That's probably a mistake.

   Alex: We should fix that, we should say processor.

   -> [22]http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/xml-proc-profiles.html

   Alex: Do we need to say something about this being DTD parsing in the
   sense of the XML Rec and not other forms of schema validation

   Norm: I'll link to the term.
   ... Are we satisfied that with these changes, assuming we like the
   editor's choice of words, we've completed our tasks and we're ready to ask
   the reviewers to look at it again and see if they're satisfied?

   Henry: Yes

   <scribe> ACTION: Norm to implement the changes proposed and send them to
   the WG for review in time for next week's meeting [recorded in

   Norm: Any other discussion of processor profiles this week?
   ... None heard

  Review of binary proposals

   Alex: Could we step back and have a broader discussion

   Henry: I thought there was an emerging consensus that we should try for
   the all-XML approach
   ... I'd rather frame it that way

   Vojtech: I'm willing to try the all XML way first if we can manage it
   ... What I proposed is allowing non-XML data to flow through the pipeline,
   but it does have some weird consequences that I'm not that comfortable
   with; XProc is a an XML processing language, if we can process other kinds
   of data and maintain the XML flavor, I'm in favor of that.

   Alex: I have an email.

   The WG reviews ->

   Alex: It does rely on some sort of resource manager.

   Norm: Does it actually rely on special URIs?

   Alex: It's up to the implementation.

   <jfuller> +1 general gist of conversation

   Norm: The question I have is, is there ever any need to distingusih
   between the XML or the referenced binary?

   Alex: It does mean more works for our steps.

   Norm: So you can't ever post the XML

   Alex: Or you have an extra bit of markup that says which to do.
   ... You might want, with a data URI for example, to be able to save the
   XML or save the binary

   Norm: Let's try some email discussion to see if we can decide if we need
   to make this distinction and if we do, how we might do it cleanly.

  Any other business?

   Norm: We were going to talk about the XProcathon, but let's wait for Jim
   next week or do it in email
