16:45:00 [plh]
16:46:01 [plh]
Glen: we spent time defining set of features. If we can agree on those sets, we can document that for a presentation processor
16:46:17 [plh]
... we can include an other profile that includes all of the features
16:46:42 [plh]
... we can also list the requirements for processors
16:47:29 [david]
david has joined #tt
16:47:32 [plh]
... don't try to remove features from the spec but instead keep them and classify them into compliance mode
16:47:36 [geoff]
i think the problem is in the spelling of my name: GEOFF, nor GOEFF
16:48:36 [plh]
Philippe: we ought to remove features that are not implemented
16:48:52 [plh]
Glen: some features were adopted from CSS and XSL, like bidi
16:49:04 [plh]
... not of the existing processors support those
16:49:21 [plh]
... but there are many other types of processors that implement those
16:49:33 [plh]
... in the general case, there are implementations of those features
16:49:54 [plh]
... what is the goal?
16:50:40 [plh]
Philippe: implementation status of DFXP
16:50:54 [plh]
David: there is also a role as an interchange format
16:51:30 [plh]
... we need to be clear on what it mean to be an implementation
16:52:19 [plh]
Glen: we can easily transform all the features in a target format
16:52:38 [plh]
... but it may be difficult to produce a presentation processor for all of them
16:54:07 [plh]
Philippe: agreed, we'll need to match our implementation requirements with our compliance mode(s).
16:55:06 [plh]
David: indeed, the presentation role will include a subset of the features
16:55:49 [plh]
Glen: there are many specifications that do not have presentation processors.
16:56:22 [plh]
... conformance requirements for Unicode, but not requirements for Unicode to have all characters being displayed.
16:57:02 [plh]
... for features that we identify as information interchange, we define them in semantic terms and we transform those into alternative representations
16:57:17 [plh]
David: I wonder if we can use the CSS test suite...
16:57:45 [plh]
Goeff: is the requirement is "to be transformed" or "to be transformed and displayed"?
16:58:06 [plh]
Glen: HTML if you recall does not define the rendering
16:58:29 [plh]
... it would be a disservice to remove features just because we couldn't implement a presentator processor
16:59:12 [plh]
... we need a good definition for features and implementations, make a compelling case for that, and act along those lines
17:00:42 [plh]
... as long as the feature can be transformed semantically should be sufficient
17:02:25 [plh]
David: we need to check that the feature has been correctly transformed
17:03:35 [plh]
Sean: as homework, let's all take a look at the features and classify them "presentation" or "transformation" role
17:03:40 [plh]
Glen: I did this in the past
17:03:47 [plh]
... will dig this out
17:04:18 [plh]
... the only feature I'm uncomfortable with is the dynamic flow text
17:04:32 [plh]
... if we modify it, I could be more comfortable with it
17:04:47 [plh]
David: what implementations of DFXP do we have out there?
17:05:34 [plh]
... Goeff Magpy, Microsoft work, BBC work, World Airline entertainment association?, ...
17:05:52 [plh]
Goeff: I'll put a list together for next week
17:06:07 [plh]
David: also one open source software seems to support DFXP
17:06:56 [plh]
Philippe: tests/test suite?
17:07:15 [plh]
Glen: My previous company did put together a test suite in the past
17:07:25 [plh]
ACTION: Glen to git out the test suite/tests
17:07:25 [trackbot]
Sorry, couldn't find user - Glen
