I see 2 items remaining on the agenda; the next one is
16:18:17 [Zakim]
2. EARL Location [from shadi]
16:18:19 [shadi]
zakim, take up agendum 2
16:18:20 [Zakim]
agendum 2. "EARL Location" taken up [from shadi]
16:19:39 [shadi]
zakim, who is making noise?
16:19:50 [niq]
saz: Location property needs to be a bag?
16:19:51 [Zakim]
shadi, listening for 11 seconds I heard sound from the following: chaals (63%)
16:23:07 [niq]
cmn: likes a bag
16:23:43 [shadi]
zakim, mute chaals
16:23:43 [Zakim]
chaals should now be muted
16:23:57 [niq]
nrk: we need to define the bag: several instances of an error, or several descriptions of an instance?
16:24:07 [chaals]
s/bag/bag but there seems to be little love for it in general, so maybe we should go with the same approach as we did for Assertor and make explicit classes and properties/
16:24:27 [JohannesK]
JohannesK has joined #er
16:25:01 [niq]
saz: clarifies, assertion may have bag of locations, but location may have more than one part
16:25:12 [chaals]
[example of a compound location - validity problem where a n element should have been closed, and you point to the starting element in one place, and where it should be closed somewhere else]
16:26:43 [niq]
nrk: compond locations have more structure than a bag - should leave structure to implementors
16:30:08 [niq]
saz/nrk: think about primary and subsidiary [parts of] location?
16:30:44 [niq]
cmn: just several parts
16:31:07 [niq]
cmn: don't necessarily want primary/subsidiary
16:38:59 [niq]
saz: just use one location property, defer refinement discussion
16:39:56 [Zakim]
16:40:27 [Zakim]
16:40:44 [shadi]
zakim, ??p4 is really Nick
16:40:44 [Zakim]
+Nick; got it
16:40:47 [niq]
Zakim: p4 is me
16:41:22 [shadi]
scribe: Nick
16:41:27 [shadi]
scribenick: niq
16:41:34 [shadi]
chair: Shadi
16:41:46 [niq]
saz: Location variants: line/col, offset byte/char, xpointer
16:41:50 [shadi]
regrets: none
16:42:00 [shadi]
meeting: ERT WG
16:42:01 [niq]
cmn: Property should be open
16:43:25 [chaals]
[for CSS selectors, in a tag soup document you can use something like img[src=fred.jpg] and it has well-defined meaning, which isn't the case for Xpath/Xpointer]
16:45:38 [niq]
saz: we can agree on a list of predefined location types
16:46:22 [niq]
cmn: need to clarify the fine detail: count from 0 or 1; accept all forms of lineend, ??
16:47:49 [Zakim]
chaals, you wanted to note that there are some layout-type problems, awhere the description is going to be in terms of a direction on the screen.
16:50:11 [shadi]
list of candidates are: line/col, offset, CSS selector, XPath, XPointer, text description, fuzzy pointers
16:50:14 [niq]
cmn: character offsets may have normalisation issues
16:51:38 [chaals]
[line/col can be a range, as well as a blank]
16:52:05 [shadi]
zakim, close agendum 2
16:52:05 [Zakim]
agendum 2, EARL Location, closed
16:52:06 [Zakim]
I see 1 item remaining on the agenda:
16:52:07 [Zakim]
3. EARL Evidence [from shadi]
16:52:12 [shadi]
zakim, take up agendum 3
16:52:12 [Zakim]
agendum 3. "EARL Evidence" taken up [from shadi]
16:52:24 [chaals]
[location in a visual presentation, and time information in a dynamic medium, are two issues. Both of these can be represented using XML technologies and making Xpointers, but this is not always the easierst approach]
16:54:54 [Zakim]
16:55:25 [chaals]
Oh. dropped connection. system-wide :-(
16:55:44 [chaals]
We ahve a rpoposal that I put during the face to face, which is still the proposal I would put next week.
16:56:03 [niq]
cmn via saz: three ways of testing - human, machine, derivation
16:57:08 [chaals]
If you make a claim based on other claims (e.g. I can see some collection of claims that amounts to claims for each checkpoint of WCAG, and you have a rule that says WCAG triple-A conformance is just conformance to each checkpoint of WCAG, then you can say mode=heuristic that the subject meets WCAG ltriple-A without doing any actual testing.
16:57:21 [chaals]
It would be useful to be able to say what you base such a claim on.
16:57:44 [niq]
nrk: this sounds like the auto/manual/heuristic property of Assertor
16:57:53 [chaals]
For example, there may be conflicting claims about some checkpoints, or you may only want to trust claims based on checkpoints from some particular assertors.
16:58:36 [niq]
saz: maybe could be property of testcase
16:58:38 [chaals]
so the idea is to be able to say that in making some assertion, which is done as mode=heuristic, you used some given collection of assertions, and of rules.
16:58:52 [niq]
saz: discussion needs chaals on voice
16:58:58 [niq]
16:59:15 [chaals]
cannot be a property of testcase, because you cannot hang the particular assertions off the testcase.
16:59:23 [niq]
saz: next telecon sept 20th
16:59:27 [chaals]
could be a property of Assertion, or of result though.
16:59:40 [chaals]
Chaals sends regrets for 20th.
