--Publication dates for Spec and Test after Moratorium.  QAH will be

3. SpecLite:
--Overview of SpecLite. Section on Extensions has been updated, new text 
for deprecation and Quality Control has been added.  Comments and examples 
requested.  Current version available 
at:  http://www.w3.org/QA/WG/2004/04/specgl-lite.html  Priority for review 
is Extensions.  Karl will provide some examples. David may also provide 
some examples from his experience with XSLT

--Discussion of definitions for Extensions and extensibility.
Karl’s reasons for defining extensions and extensibility.  We need to 
define what we mean by extensible.
Mark: extensions derived because of the IT industry.  Extensible, is 
generic, it is the ability to add things, providing hooks.  Doesn't like 
the definition to be so narrow.
Karl: Agree, that it needs to allow for flexibility.  We need to be careful 
that we don't add confusion.  Should we not define it?
Mark: Recommend not using the word extension. If I was writing, I wouldn't 
use the word.  Will review the text and propose a new definition for 
extensible or extensibility.

4. TestLite:
Patrick will be working with Dimitris on the document.

5.  CR Issue about error handling of specifications.  (Bjoern #29)
Should this be discussed in SpecLite, if so, what error handling should be 
discussed?  Of interest may be, what are the different error handling 
mechanisms used across specifications they know? A Wiki was started on 
this.  The WebArch discusses error handling from an agent viewpoint, not 
from a specification view.  The more examples we have, the more we will be 
able to discuss the various techniques.  Use the mailing list for 
discussion.  Use the Wiki for adding examples. Wiki on 
ErrorHandling:  http://esw.w3.org/topic/ErrorHandling
