<pchampin> scribe: chris
action 134, 135, and 149 to David are ongoing
<trackbot> Sorry, couldn't find user - 134,
<pchampin> can you remind the URI of the current version of the API document?
<pchampin> scribe: pchampin
<trackbot> ACTION-158 Review the API document closed
<trackbot> ACTION-159 Send review of the API document closed
<trackbot> ACTION-160 Daniel to send an email to the list to get more feedback and reviews for the API document closed
werner: satisfied with the
updates of the documents re. my comments
... some comments need further discussion in the long term, but do not concern the first draft
... can be discussed at F2F
joakim: are those remarks to be discussed collected in one e-mail?
werner: no, spread in different
places, raised by different persons
... may be gathered in a wiki page
action werner and joakim to collect in a wiki page all issues to be discussed at the F2F
<trackbot> Created ACTION-161 - And joakim to collect in a wiki page all issues to be discussed at the F2F [on Werner Bailer - due 2009-10-20].
<wonsuk> Diff between current API doc and old one.
werner: suggest to move the whole
Web IDL code towards the end of the document
... start with individual property descriptions
wonsuk: aggrees, will do that
pchampin: is the NoValue exception really necessary? null value?
chris: created the exception to be able to carry the *reason* for the absence of value (see attribute errorMessage)
pchampin: that makes sense, I retract my comment :)
<joakim> (my line was cut off)
pchampin: I think that the
ontology document should stick to a high level conceptual level
for the ranges of the properties
... and that the API document should propose representations for those concepts
... like the current Web IDL interfaces that we have
... those interfaces come out of nowhere, they should be introduced (as abstract concepts, in the ontology document)
<joakim> Felix do you have a comment?
<fsasaki> felix: propose to link ma:properties to methods from the api, and the other way round
<fsasaki> .. by "link" I mean referencing to each other
<fsasaki> felix: probably the same as pchampin said
pchampin: agree with that, and we should do the same for range Concepts
<wbailer> wiki page for open api issues is at http://www.w3.org/2008/WebVideo/Annotations/wiki/API_Open_Issues
joakim: can we publish the API
document as a first public working draft
... after moving the WebIDL section to the appendix?
<joakim> Are we resolved to publish with the updated Werner
<joakim> mentioned Any objections?
RESOLUTION: publish the API document as a first public working draft
action joakim to contact W3C staff to put the API working draft on TR
<trackbot> Created ACTION-162 - Contact W3C staff to put the API working draft on TR [on Joakim Söderberg - due 2009-10-20].
joakim: this problem seems to be
a recurring comment
... we should motivate this choice in the documents
werner: this may be because the ma:properties do not have a precise definition
<fsasaki> +1 to werner
werner: e.g. concerning datatypes
pchampin: I think there is (and will be) an overlap
werner: overlap yes, but our definitions will eventually be more precise than DC definitions
joakim: felix had another explaination
<fsasaki> felix: my explanation was mainly that we do not want to put one format into the center
<fsasaki> .. but have ma: properties only as a mediator between existing formats
<fsasaki> .. like in the metadata working group
action david to update some of the descriptions to make them more precise and highlight the difference with DC
<trackbot> Created ACTION-163 - Update some of the descriptions to make them more precise and highlight the difference with DC [on David Singer - due 2009-10-20].
action joakim to update the wiki with the rationale for not reusing DC properties
<trackbot> Created ACTION-164 - Update the wiki with the rationale for not reusing DC properties [on Joakim Söderberg - due 2009-10-20].
<fsasaki> felix: sorry, only on IRC: putting one format into the center or not is also a question of marketing, and we want to be as neutral as possible with respect to existing "players" on the market
<fsasaki> felix: agree with pchampin
pchampin: in line with Felix's
argument, I think only experience will tell if our
interpretation of ma:properties will be equivalent or not with
... semantics of properties is dynamic, it depends on the way they are used or implemented
... so defining our own is a precaution
action joakim to send a mail to the wap WG
<trackbot> Created ACTION-165 - Send a mail to the wap WG [on Joakim Söderberg - due 2009-10-20].
joakim: the API document states
that this is a client API
... when did we decide that?
wonsuk: this API could be adapted
to the server side
... in the perspective of Web applications, it is more appropriate to the client-side,
... built into browsers
joakim: feedback from XXX: can I get metadata of a MP3 file without downloading it?
... is there a mapping from Web IDL to server side APIs?
... (rest or soap)?
pchampin: anyway, the object
implementing our interface does not have to contain the media
... but we have to think about this use case
joakim: all toy implementations to date are server side
<fsasaki> felix: my implementation can easily be ported to be a client side implementation
<fsasaki> .. no problem here :)
<fsasaki> .. rather an implementation detail
<fsasaki> .. not a totally different approach
pchampin: +1 felix
wonsuk: I'll revise the API
document and send it to the mailing list
... apply werner's comment about moving the Web IDL section to the appendix
what is the next step of this document?
joakim: we will try to publish
the current version, I'll contact the W3C staff
... next meeting: next tuesday, same time
<fsasaki> felix: joakim, somebody needs to do the pubrules check, work on the status section. Better ask Thierry to do that
