RE: Agenda of TAG teleconference 14 February 2005

Thanks for the agenda.  We're looking forward to the call.

The schema WG has worked for some time now on the versioning,
and most recently we've been attempting for formalize use
cases against versioning of XML languages.  We have a document 
that is a work in progress:  neither the content nor the format
yet has the offical endorsement of the schema WG.  

The original post is at the following URL, though it is not in 
public space.  This document will not change over time and can
be used for review before Monday's telcon if you don't want to
be surprised with revisions:

The following URL currently points to a copy of the document,
but this one will be updated over time, and it is in public space:

The "health-care specialization" use case is one that has
had most recent attention:  the others are still fragmented
and under construction.  One thing to note is that as far as
we've been able to manage, these use cases represent real problems
that people who define and use XML languages face.

This document is not yet polished, but at least people will have 
an opportunity to see some use cases and how we're writing them before 
Monday.  The current version uses "diff markup" so many sections are
rendered with a red background.  That should change soon.

We expect to publish a second document addressing proposed mechanisms 
to support versioning, and also addressing some terminological recommendations.  
While it should be published Monday, it will not be in time for review 
before the telcon.

Best regards,
David Ezell, chair
XML Schema WG
