list the agenda

move to agenda 3

Follow-up on conformance testing practices.

Zhiheng: Following a model similar to HTML5 is using
... Get the repository set up.
... Sent mail about best practices, two stage process: Submission, Approval.


AndersonQuach: Can http headers be changed?

plh: yes, servers are being updated to handle these requirements. Migration to finish in a couple of weeks.
... Look into XMLHttpRequest test suites for best practices. Not yet in place. Name of the server in a couple weeks. XHR tests are on Opera servers. I can try to find a link.

AndersonQuach: Test existing of attributes, relative ordering of tests, cross-domain tests.

plh: Make sure tests are automated.

AndersonQuach: may not be possible across all agents for navigation type.

Zhiheng: Can we use automation UI software to drive browser input.

plh: Probably not, that would require software on the desktop.

Zhiheng: Cross-domain question, what are the new domains for the test servers?

plh: Let me check that.

<plh> w3c-test.org

<plh> test1.w3c-test.org

<plh> test2.w3c-test.org

Zhiheng: we need two different top-level domain.

<plh> ACTION: plh to investigate having two top-level domains [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2010/11/24-webperf-minutes.html#action01]

<trackbot> Created ACTION-5 - Investigate having two top-level domains [on Philippe Le H├ęgaret - due 2010-12-01].

plh: Next step, someone write one test and review it.

AndersonQuach: We can look into following up with this.

Zhiheng: TonyG has some tests he would like to submit.
... next meeting let's review and go through the approval process for new test cases.

plh: one more question about two top-level domain.

AndersonQuach: for testing of privacy requirements, within server side redirect chains.

plh: we can set this up when the test server comes online.

<plh> close action-5

<trackbot> ACTION-5 Investigate having two top-level domains closed

JamesSimonsen: Tony and I are adverse to using public suffix +1

move to agenda 2

Feedback on navigation timing.

JamesSimonsen: Sub-domains may be hosted on different servers.

<plh> --> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2010JulSep/0602.html XmlHttpRequest Test Suite

JamesSimonsen: Same problem with app hosting sites as with Top Level domain.

<plh> s/topic\+ Feedback/Topic: Feedback/

NicJansma: With the poll being 50 / 50 what's the decision we want to lock down towards.

Zhiheng, JamesSimonsen: FQDN would be the most conservative.

Zhiheng: Although I want to increase the usefulness.

list the agenda

AndersonQuach: let's move towards the default decision of being conservative, pending input from other user agents to lock down on the spec.

introducing a new set of drafts

Anderson: Quach Let's aim to get feedback submitted by 11/29 to push a working draft by 11/30.

Zhiheng: I want to submit a new working draft by the end of the month.

move to agenda 1

Follow-up on the window.performance namespace.

AndersonQuach: Let's reserach the proposed names and probability of it being hit on web content.

<zcorpan> another thing a college wanted to get across regarding testing is a wish to use the same harness as the HTMLWG and WebApps:

<zcorpan> http://test.w3.org/resources/testharness.js

<zhiheng> yes, that makes sense.

<zhiheng> I think that's what HTML WG using as well.

<plh> yes it is

Christian: Sounds like a safe approach to use the FQDN, however less useful for web developres.


1. Let's prepare a test case to review for the next Web performance meeting.

2. Get a working draft published by 11/30. Feedback to be provided by EOD 11/29.

3. Anderson to research the probability of namespace collisions for the suggested alternatives.

4. JamesSimonsen to post feedback on resource timing proposals.

[Decision] moving foward with the conservative approach of FQDN for the definition of 'Same Origin' as specified in the HTML5 spec. Need to get feedback from other user agents.
