Dear www-tag,

This is a summary of the TAG's activity from 10 June 2003 
(end date of the previous summary [1]) to 9 July 2003.

The TAG had four teleconferences during this period. Summaries of
those meetings are linked from the TAG home page [2].

1) Issues

  The TAG opened one new issue during this period:

    putMediaType-38 : Relation of HTTP PUT to GET, and whether 
                    client headers to server are authoritative

  The TAG discussed most of its issues during this period, in
  preparation for its July face-to-face meeting. Issues receiving
  particular attention included contentTypeOverride-24,
  abstractComponentRefs-37, whenToUseGet-7, xmlIdSemantics-32,
  and metadataInURI-31.

  Details about discussions and related actions are available in
  the meeting minutes linked from the TAG's home page. The TAG's
  issues list is available at: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/ilist

2) Findings

  The TAG published one new draft finding during this period:

    "The Use of Metadata in URIs"

  The TAG also continued to incorporate review comments
  into revisions of the following draft finding:

    "Client handling of MIME headers"

  The TAG continues work on, but did not publish new
  revisions of the following draft findings:

    "How should the problem of identifying ID semantics in XML
     languages be addressed in the absence of a DTD?"

    "URIs, Addressability, and the use of HTTP GET and POST"

  More information about TAG findings is available at:

3) Architecture Document

  The TAG published the 27 June 2003 draft of "Architecture of
  the World Wide Web" [3] during this period. The TAG expects to
  discuss this draft, or a subsequent Editor's draft with a few
  additions, at its July face-to-face meeting. Although this
  draft remains incomplete, section 3 is much more complete than
  in previous drafts.

  List of changes:

4) Communication

  1. The TAG and Voice Working Group have engaged in fruitful
   discussions on the definition of the "type" attribute in the
   Voice WG's "Speech Recognition Grammar Specification" (related
   to issue contentTypeOverride-24). After email exchanges and 
   discussions at two teleconferences, the two Working Groups
   are satisfied with the results.

  2. Participants in the SYMM IG have provided valuable input on
   the TAG's draft finding "Client handling of MIME headers".

5) Upcoming events.

  The TAG will be meeting face-to-face 21-23 July in Vancouver.
  Many thanks to Antarctica, Schemasoft, and BEA Systems for 
  co-hosting the meeting.

For co-Chairs Stuart Williams and Tim Berners-Lee,
