procedures that would improve the TAG's effectiveness
- Review TAG Priorities for 2012

Sessions will be scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday: a long lunch will be scheduled, during which Jonathan, Henry and Jeni will work on this as a breakout
- Tenatively, group discussion will be on Thursday — if as a result of the Tuesday meetings it appears better to start earlier, then we will reschedule as appropriate.
- Client-side storage including synchronization
- Establish goals for TAG work on client-side storage
- Consider possible TAG effort on opportunities and pitfalls relating to synchronization
- Background on Client-side storage:
- Background on synchroniztion:
- ACTION-693: on - Robin Berjon - Draft scope and goals for the Patterns/Pitfalls work in local/remote storage synch - Due: 2012-04-19 - PENDING REVIEW
- E-mail from Robin Berjon proposing direction for TAG work on"Paterns and Pitfalls in storage synchronization". (required reading — late addition) Note that Robin recommends:
- [The TAG SHOULD NOT] attempt to provide a solution for synchronisation problems. It is a complex research area, and if a standardised solution were to be established (which may not be necessary, and certainly not yet) it ought to be created by a dedicated working group with the requisite expertise.
- there could be room for the TAG to release a short advisory note that would document 1) the known pitfalls in dealing with data synchronisation, 2) the primary patterns and solutions, and 3) an overview of the terms of the trade. The goal of such a document would be to ensure that someone who may be an adept Web application developer but has no knowledge of this specific problem space to save precious time by being bootstrapped with the basics one needs to start working on a solution (no matter how partial).
- ACTION-563: Periodic TAG key issues reports to Jeff Jaffe
- Start collecting lists of issues to be reported to Jeff Jaffe in the fall
- ISSUE-67 (HTML-XML-Divergence-67): HTML / XML Unification
- The chair is trying to arrange for Norm Walsh to join us by phone — Norm is also hoping
to provide us with a brief summary of progress since our January 2012 meeting with him.
- Record of meeting with Norm Walsh on 5 January 2012:
- At the start of the meeting Norm said:
"My goal is to publish report, which the TAG needs to do so that we can get public review"
- There was discussion of various proposed changes, e.g. to provide more references
- At the end of the meeting, the TAG passed a formal RESOLUTION: The TAG thanks Norm Walsh and the task force, and expects that Norm will shortly provide the TAG for review a draft on XML/HTML Unification to be published as a W3C note for comunity review and comment. TAG chair will check with TAG before giving final clearance for publication.
- The HTML/XML Task Force Report (required reading) was announced on 22 February 2012.
