<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/106

<pimpbot> Title: ISSUE-106 - HTML Weekly Tracker (at www.w3.org)

paulc: two new issues, 105 and 106
... any other "escallations" pending?

mjs: there are a number of issues with TrackerRequest tag, some are not in the proper state; we will give the authors a chance to raise the issue if they access, or otherwise we will assist with this work

paulc: I note that 105 has an A11y aspect to it; Mike can you bring it to the attention of the A11y task force.

mike: Steven is the one that raised it, and I will follow up with Steven; he will need to be the one to take the lead

12. Scribe for next meeting

<plh> regrets for next week

mjs: I will chair next wee

paulc: I will scribe

<paulc> Any other business?

<paulc> Sam is concerned about muttiple WGs using the same MIME type?

<paulc> What is the other WG?

plh: xhtml2 is not fully closed yet, and we will let them do their updates
... they are working on the xhtml1.1 documents
... at the moment we would have two groups using the same mime type

paulc: did that answer the question as to what other working group is touching the mime type?

julian: yes, but it doesn't answer the question as to whether this appropriate

plh: we will need to bring this to the coordination group
... it would send a strong message if the HTML5 working group were to state that they are the only one who should use the text/html MIME type

julian: the W3C owns the mime type; from an architectural point of view it doesn't matter unless the XHTML wg updates the mime type

paulc: is there actually a chair in place for the XHTML2 working group?

plh: yes

paulc: perhaps we can invite the co-chair to a telecon?

plh: I'm willing to take an action item to contact the chairs

paulc: that's the best way to deal with this

<scribe> ACTION: plh to contact the various chairs/co-chairs to resolve the use of the text/html mime type [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2010/04/01-html-wg-minutes.html#action01]

<trackbot> Created ACTION-178 - Contact the various chairs/co-chairs to resolve the use of the text/html mime type [on Philippe Le H├ęgaret - due 2010-04-08].

<Julian> - clarifying - a document with new info about text/html is irrelevant from a standards point of view unless the mime type registration is updated to point to it

paulc: does this deal with the agenda item?

rubys: yes

<paulc> Adjounred at :30 after the hour.

paulc: adjourned

<Julian> bye
