   Alex gives possible regrets.

  Removing XPath 1.0

   Norm: I propose to make that the new status quo draft for 2.0. Any

   Alex: We replaced a lot of instances of 1.0 with 2.0 and I wonder if we
   should try to be more clever about insulating ourselves from future

   Norm: I agree, but we can do that in the future.

   We have that as a requirement:

   -> [15]https://github.com/xproc/specification/issues/30

   Alex: We're pretty close, but it seems like we could be more clever.
   ... We should give implementors the option of doing an XPath 3.1 processor
   in the future.

   Norm: That's why I didn't remove xpath-version...
   ... We can just say "XPath 2.0 or some future version" if we're clever.

   Alex: I think we need to just be a little more careful in the XPath
   context sections.

   Norm: So, any objections to the proposal in pull request 71?

   None heard. Accepted.

  Fix spec metadata

   Norm: On another day, I might have just called this editorial.

   Alex: Are we using DeltaXML? What about higher granularity of changes?

   Norm: DeltaXML won't do that, the XPath spec does it by having the author
   do the change markup.
   ... I thought I could get DeltaXML to pull requests, but I couldn't.
   ... I'll consider doing the diff markup by hand.
   ... I'll do it "by hand" for the next round of changes and we'll see how
   that goes.
   ... Anyway, an objection to the proposal in pull request 73?

   None heard, accepted.

  Work plan?

   Alex: From a scheduling standpoint, we're all going in different
   ... I'm just about caught up.

   Norm: I'm hoping discrete requirements will help.

   Alex: Maybe we could get some idea of peoples availability for spec work.

   <MoZ> what about TPAC ?

   Norm: Realistically, I think we'll be spun back up by early October.

   Alex: Maybe we should make that explicit.

   Loren: How many folks are going to TPAC?

   Norm: I'll be there, Alex it's easy for you.

   Mohamed: I'm trying to get there.

   Loren: I'll be there.
   ... I think XProc is Thursday/Friday.

   Alex: I can't make Thursdays.

   Norm: Ok, I'll see about moving XProc to Monday/Tuesday.

   Alex: I can be there on Monday for sure.

   Norm: Alex, you were going to work on parameters and zip/unzip.

   Alex: Yes, I got some work done on zip/unzip. I just need to integrate
   some feedback.
   ... There's a question about process.

   Norm: On the process question for zip/unzip, I suggest you follow the
   model of the p:template step.
   ... On the authoring question, let's chat.

   Alex: And the instructions for this are...

   Norm: I have an action to update the README.

   Alex: I'll start with zip/unzip.
   ... We could make having zip/unzip ready for review at TPAC a goal.

  Any other business?

   None heard
