4.  SOAP 1.2 Last Call [9, 10, 11] call for review [12].  Awaiting text

5.  FTF Agenda
Review, rearrange and augment first draft of the agenda [13].  Note that

[13] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ws-desc/2002Sep/0004.html
(members only)

             JohnM reviewed the current agenda draft for each day.
             Additional agenda items to be added from conference call discussion
if             necessary.

             Currently no plans to have a joint meeting with Architecture Group.

             Phone access to F2F meeting is being set up however details
             not available. Currently planning capacity for 5 incoming calls.
             Please ping DBooth if you plan on dialing into the F2F (members

             It was requested that an agenda item for an update from a WSI-Org
             be added.
             JeffM agreed to give the update. Briefly discussed possible subject
matter to           be covered.

             It was requested that an agenda item be added to discuss REST (what
is it,         does it impact the group).
             Noted that the Architecture Group has that on their agenda for the
             It was suggested to ask the Architecture Grp to have the REST
             presentation/discussion on Wed. during F2F and to allowing
             ws-desc members to attend.

             Suggested discussing GlenD MEP proposal at the F2F in his absence.
Left off
             F2F agenda for now.

                                 (members only).
6.  New Issues
Philippe points out a couple of public comments on the public comments
list [13].  What process do we want to follow (pre-last-call) to respond
to these comments and make sure real ones appear on our issues list?

[14] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-desc-comments/

             Public Comments have been/will be addressed by the Editors.
             Editors will get public email comments directly to expedite
             W3C Last Call procedure requires workgroup response to public
             Editorial staff will act as filter for the group for addressing
             comments that require design or discussion(i.e., not editorial).

             Resolution: (Done)

             New Action Item: (None)

7.  SOAP TF Status?  Need more meetings?  Is [15] the output?
Conclusions so far:
  (1) We need to be able to express MEPs in the SOAP binding.
  (2) The ability to describe features and MEPs at the abstract level
      would be a good thing, but right now we don't know how much effort
      it would take to do so.
  (3) Feedback to XMLP WG: lack of something (such as a header) to
      express the MEP in use.  (Glen: perhaps we should say that, for
      each binding, there must be a way to identify unambiguously the
      MEP in use; of course, for bindings that support just one MEP
      that's a no-op).
  (4) Currently, there is no well-defined one-way MEP.

[15] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0034.html

This topic was deferred last time.  Is there anything more we need to do

             Discussed current status of the task force.
             Proposal from GlenD addresses (1).
             Other three items have been addressed as well.

             Resolution: Declared Success and SOAP TF closed down.

             New Action Item:    (none)

8. Proposal: Hoisting SOAP binding attributes [16].  Roberto's amendment
at [17].

[16] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0058.html
[17] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0105.html

             Discussion:      It was decided that the group should discuss
                           the proposal at F2F.

             Resolution: PENDING

             New Action Item: (none) JohnM to add to F2F agenda.

9. Issue 51: Asymmetry between soap:body and soap:header [18].  Thread
starts at [19] (Kevin), continues at [20] and [21].

[18] http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/2/06/issues.html#x51
[19] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0048.html
[20] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0049.html
[21] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0081.html

             Kevin gave summary of his proposal to address [18].  Concern
             was raised about how making the <soap:body> and <soap:header>
             completely symmetric would impact the way these elements are
             currently used and how they are processed.

             Resolution: No agreement, Discuss more at F2F.

             New Action Item: (none) JohnM to add to F2F agenda.

10. Issue 25: Interaction between W3C XML Schema and SOAP Data Model
    Gudge's explains at [22], Roberto's options at [23].

[22] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jun/0186.html
[23] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0071.html

             MG gave an overview of Issue 25.
             It was mentioned (JeffM?) that the WSI group was also addressing
             this issue.
             The group briefly discussed how WSI is proposing to address the
             and the fact that it is basically option 3 from [23].
             JeffM will keep group informed on WSI's progress
             and when reviewable doc's are available. Input to the WSI group
             was invited.

             Resolution: Leave Open for now and monitor progress in WSI

             New Action Item: (None)

11. Issue 5: EncodingStyle
    Issue 30: soap:body encodingStyle
    Dietmar's soaptf proposal for encoding and use attributes. [24]
    Arthur's recommendations. [25, 26]

[24] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ws-desc/2002Jul/0016.html
[25] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jun/0178.html
[26] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jun/0178.html

                    Arthur gave summary of his recommendations and it was noted
that the
                    recommendation addressed only part of the original set of
                    questions/issues from Dietmar's note and
                    that other issues contained in that note may need to be
                    discussed. John M, Dietmar, etc. discussed if the current
                    could be closed and if there needed to be other new issues
                    raised as result of Deitmar's note.

                    Issue 5 and 30 are resolved per [25] and [26]

             New Action Items:
                    Dietmar to extract remaining questions/issues from
                    [24] references in a new thread to be opened as a new issue.

                    JohnM to add to F2F agenda.

12. Issue 18: Default for transport of <soap:binding> [27]. Jeffrey's
proposal at [28].

[27] http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2002/ws/desc/issues/wsd-issues.html#x18
[28] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0122.html

                    Summary of the issues was given and the recommendations.

                    Recollection (from Jeffrey?) was that GlenD may still have
                    concerns about closing Issue 28 without action.
                    The issue of bindings raised in 28 needs a lot of
                    further discussion and the group may need to revisit Issue
18 later if
                    addressing Issue 28 results in a complete binding overhaul.

                    Issue 18 to be closed per [28] to make the transport
                    mandatory for the <soap:binding> element.

                    Issue 28 still open and may be discussed at F2F if time

             New Action Item: (None)

13. HTTP Binding Issues (6a, 41)
    Jeffrey recommends no change [29].
    Sanjiva is mulling this over [30].

[29] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jun/0102.html
[30] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Jul/0067.html

             Discussion: None. Still waiting for input from Sanjiva.
             Resolution: Pending
             New Action Item: (None)

Call Adjourned

Summary of New Action Items:

1. Deitmar to extract remaining questions/issues from [24] and sent out
   in a new email thread to be opened as a new issue(s).
