Review and tweak agenda

AB: draft agenda was posted on Sep 23 ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1199.html ). During the widget Interface topic we will record the recent exchanges between Marcos and Marcin as well as the origin thread from Scott Wilson as a way of capturing ongoing discussions but we won't deep dive on them given Marcos will not be here today.

Arve: since Marcin and Marcos aren't here, we should probably drop the VM-I spec today

AB: agree
... so given all of the Regrets, we will have a short call today


AB: any short annoucements?

[ None ]

News/summary from the Widget Testing event

AB: a widget testing event was held Sep 21-23 ( http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/wiki/TestWorkshop2009 ). Does anyone have a summary or news they can share?
... since none of the event's participants are here today, we'll skip this

widget Interface spec:

AB: Marcin and Marcos continue to discuss this thread ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1217.html ).
... Marcin and Marcos continue to discuss this thread ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1208.html ).
... the last email in this thread is from Scott ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1220.html ). One question here is "origin of a widget" versus "instance of widget".
... given Marcos isn't here today, we will drop this now but please continue to discuss this on public-webapps

WARP spec: proposal by Dom to change uri attribute to "urlpattern";

AB: Dom proposed ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1202.html ) the <access> element's uri attribute be changed to "urlpattern" citing some related work done by the POWDER WG. Any comments?

Arve: I'm unsure
... technically, he's probably right
... I agree it describes a URL pattern
... but I am skeptical to this change

AB: given Marcin isn't here today, we will drop this now but please reply to this proposal on public-webapps

JK: Dom had another suggestion and that was just "pattern"
... I prefer pattern to urlpattern

Arve: let's take this to the mail list
... I need to do some investigation as I can't reach the POWDER document right now

URI Scheme spec: status

AB: without Robin here today, we'll skip this for today

VM Media Features spec: proposal to publish FPWD

AB: last week we agreed that today we consider if the VM-MF spec was ready for FPWD ( http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets-vm/vm-mediafeature.src.html ). Marcin responded earlier today ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1252.html ) that he votes for FPWD.
... since then, Robin submitted some comment ( http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2009JulSep/1254.html ). Robin, are any of these mandatory before FPWD publication?
... I think we need to defer the question is this doc ready for FPWD
... any comments or concerns about that?

Arve: I don't think we should go to FPWD until we have a chance to hear from others

AB: anything else on this topic for today?


AB: any other topics for today?

[ None ]

AB: next meeting is October 1
... meeting adjourned
