CSS Speech
16:09:33 [anne]
I had a similar problem trying to join HTML/XML the other day
16:09:55 [dbaron]
Was there a resolution on publishing namespaces?
16:09:56 [smfr]
(danielweck not on the call)
16:10:12 [smfr]
CSS3 Images
16:10:20 [smfr]
Tab sent a list of changes
16:10:52 [Ms2ger]
(When namespaces goes to PR, can selectors become a REC?)
16:11:07 [smfr]
16:11:38 [smfr]
fantasai: section 5.1 it's unclear what changed. we have resolution to change the degrees issue with gradients
16:11:52 [smfr]
fantasai: what is the current meaning of the keywords in the draft?
16:12:02 [smfr]
bradk: it's opposite
16:12:07 [glazou]
Ms2ger: I hope yes
16:12:15 [smfr]
fantasai: should make it consistent with the previous WD and then mark it an issue
16:12:25 [smfr]
TabAtkins: i will do it
16:12:50 [smfr]
will revisit next week
16:13:27 [fantasai]
16:13:38 [smfr]
CSS Module Templates
16:13:44 [danielweck]
PS: I'm on the IRC...still trying to connect on SIP
16:13:57 [smfr]
fantasai: had some feedback from jdaggett and dbaron; have not incorporated feedback from dbaron yet
16:14:09 [dbaron]
16:14:12 [fantasai]
16:14:18 [Ms2ger]
16:14:28 [fantasai]
16:14:34 [fantasai]
16:14:38 [Zakim]
16:14:50 [smfr]
jdaggett: the intro is separated from the body by 3 sections which contain info that should be in a preface
16:15:02 [smfr]
suggests an initial section with that stuff in
16:15:17 [Zakim]
16:15:33 [danielweck]
Zakim, ??P30 is me
16:15:33 [Zakim]
+danielweck; got it
16:16:01 [smfr]
TabAtkins: agrees; boilerplate stuff should be collected together at beginning or end
16:16:48 [smfr]
Florian: would prefer it be at the top
16:17:57 [smfr]
fantasai: don't want it to merge with the status section. Move Document Conventions section to the conformance section near the end?
16:18:09 [dbaron]
I wonder how much we can do and remain compliant to
16:18:15 [smfr]
jdaggett: put after TOC, before Intro
16:18:30 [smfr]
TabAtkins: how much flexibility do we have with the Status section?
16:18:46 [smfr]
fantasai: there is some useful stuff, but much is not useful
16:19:08 [smfr]
glazou: we don't have total flexibility. see pubrules above
16:19:27 [smfr]
jdaggett: confused by the formatting. issues sprinkled all over the place
16:19:48 [smfr]
fantasai: these are things that need to be replaced. they come from the template
16:20:07 [dbaron]
pubrules do appear to require Abstract, then SOTD, then TOC
16:20:16 [smfr]
jdaggett: all the issues imply that there's something wrong with the template
16:20:56 [smfr]
glazou: jdaggett wants another way to showing this
16:21:09 [smfr]
jdaggett: issue is not the meaning that's implied here
16:21:38 [dbaron]
I actually like the big "Issue" markers for actual issues
16:22:15 [smfr]
smfr: this is a template after all. does it matter?
16:22:50 [smfr]
jdaggett: there are people coming into the group who will be confused by all these issues
16:22:58 [dbaron]
dbaron: I think we should not worry about what the template looks like, only what the resulting spec looks like.
16:22:59 [smfr]
plinss: ugly is better!
16:24:21 [smfr]
Florian: put all the boilerplate at the bottom?
16:24:38 [smfr]
TabAtkins: put all the boilerplate related to implementors at the bottom?
16:24:49 [smfr]
glazou: not sure we can do that?
16:24:51 [smfr]
fantasai: we can, and have
16:25:29 [smfr]
glazou: specs are made for implementors, not authors, so do we care?
16:25:34 [smfr]
TabAtkins: some authors read specs.
16:25:44 [smfr]
glazou: they can skip that section
16:26:00 [smfr]
fantasai: we can move down; what matters is what's normative, and what's informative
16:26:16 [smfr]
fantasai: values section can be tailored based on the spec
16:26:18 [Florianr]
I didn't mean "put all the boilerplate at the bottom", but "put all the boilerplate that immediately follows introduction to immediately before introduction".
16:26:40 [smfr]
glazou: suggest fantasai comes up with a reshaped template and we discuss again
16:26:58 [smfr]
Publication request: CSS3 Speech
16:27:20 [smfr]
danielweck: would like to publish CSS3 Speech as LCWD
16:27:44 [smfr]
danielweck: there has been discussion about epub3 media overlays, but believes that this does not interact with css3 speech
16:28:19 [smfr]
smfr: what would a test suite look like?
16:28:49 [smfr]
danielweck: there's some discussion; would have to talk to implementors about implementation
16:29:16 [smfr]
danielweck: LCWD does not require test suite
16:29:25 [smfr]
TabAtkins: right; needs suite to exit CR
16:30:00 [smfr]
danielweck: would be good to have new WD, but a LCWD would give the draft more presence
16:30:11 [smfr]
glazou: and triggers comments from other WGs
16:30:23 [Zakim]
16:30:32 [smfr]
glazou: please list in email the WGs you think are interested
16:31:03 [smfr]
glazou: fantasai you need another week?
16:31:10 [Zakim]
16:31:12 [smfr]
fantasai: i can review before Tuesday
16:31:18 [dbaron]
Zakim, ??P35 is danielweck

+danielweck; got it
16:32:05 [smfr]
RESOLVED: publish CSS3 Speech next week
16:32:10 [fantasai]
16:32:12 [smfr]
Topic: Seattle F2F
16:32:47 [smfr]
vincent: trying to find a room to host at Adobe, but also working with Microsoft to find space
16:32:59 [smfr]
sylvaing: assuming that folks will prefer Seattle
16:35:14 [smfr]
glazou: before going on, but do we still keep this July F2F?
16:35:45 [smfr]
jdaggett: we have a lot of work and having a F2F makes sense
16:36:21 [smfr]
glazou: is that opinion shared?
16:36:27 [smfr]
[general yes]
16:36:33 [smfr]
glazou: are the dates firm?
16:36:35 [smfr]
[general yes]
16:36:42 [smfr]
RESOLVED: Seattle dates are firm
16:36:55 [smfr]
glazou: sylvaing, when can you post an update on the final location
16:37:01 [smfr]
sylvaing: end of next week, pref. earlier?
16:37:33 [smfr]
sylvaing: hotels might book up because its a busy weekend
16:38:06 [smfr]
johnjan: hotel on the wiki is close to Adobe for sure
16:38:33 [dbaron]
wiki url?
16:38:42 [smfr]
vincent: Marriott Courtyard is listed or the SVG meetin
16:38:43 [smfr]

16:39:47 [smfr]
anne: when can we have an agenda?
16:40:21 [smfr]
glazou: we would like to talk with anne about the CSS OM
16:40:28 [smfr]
Topic CSS OM
16:40:41 [smfr]
anne: CSS OM hasn't changed for a while (been on vacation)
16:40:51 [dbaron]
And the dates are June 24-26, correct?
16:41:09 [Ms2ger]
16:41:12 [smfr]
Aug 2010: implementors would experiment to see if the proposed values API makes sense
16:41:12 [dbaron]
And the dates are July 24-26, correct?
16:41:22 [smfr]
anne: hasn't had any feedback from implementors
16:41:23 [Florianr]
July 24-26, yes.
16:41:46 [smfr]
anne: need more discussion for caret position(?)
16:42:04 [smfr]
anne: dbaron raised issue with media query listeners and when listeners are called
16:42:36 [smfr]
anne: TabAtkins suggested new APIs for location of elements on screen, border boxes, margin boxes, including transforms
16:42:53 [smfr]
anne: unclear if need more than getBoundingClient rect etc.
16:43:15 [smfr]
glazou: i sent mail "CSS OM list of issues" in May
16:43:33 [smfr]
anne: these are new feature requests; I haven't looked into them in detail
16:43:49 [smfr]
glazou: what's the immediate future for the document?
16:44:09 [smfr]
anne: need feedback from implementors before things can proceed
16:44:28 [smfr]
glazou: would a first public WD give it more visibility
16:44:32 [smfr]
anne: yes
16:44:52 [smfr]
glazou: is there immediate work to make it ready for first public WD?
16:45:32 [smfr]
anne: no, but would like link to current editors draft
16:46:19 [smfr]
smfr: shouldnt' we just publish WD more frequently
16:46:35 [Zakim]
16:46:50 [smfr]
fantasai: we should publish new WD when there are significant changes
16:46:52 [Zakim]

tantek has joined #css
16:47:37 [smfr]
glazou: the W3C needs to produce stable documents
16:48:05 [smfr]
jdaggett: the font spec does this. doesn't seem like an issue
16:48:21 [smfr]
anne: why would you review the WD when the ED has lots of fixes
16:48:55 [smfr]
glazou: in CSS 2.1 we've backed out changes, to it can happen that the ED is wrong
16:49:06 [smfr]
glazou: WD needs to be stable
16:49:25 [tantek]
IETF drafts have expiration dates, what's the historical reason why WDs don't have expiration dates?
16:49:31 [smfr]
glazou: :)
16:49:36 [tantek]
or rather, could we, as one WG, put expiration dates in our WDs?
16:49:45 [smfr]
glazou: should we link to the editors draft here?
16:49:53 [smfr]
fantasai: we should have this in the template and do this for all WDs
16:50:00 [tantek]
fantasai - agreed
16:50:11 [tantek]
all WDs should link to their EDs
16:50:17 [Ms2ger]
16:50:38 [fantasai]
RESOLVED: Add editor's draft link to module template
16:50:43 [fantasai]
16:50:45 [smfr]
RESOLVED: and add link to editors drafts in all working drafts
16:50:52 [tantek]
16:51:32 [smfr]
Topic: CSS Fonts etc
16:51:53 [smfr]
jdaggett: glen adams from samsung has objected to any kind of same origin restriction
16:52:08 [smfr]
need to resolve whether the same origin restriction is removed from the CSS3 Fonts spec
16:52:13 [tantek]
re: channel topic, I don't see krinh in the channel, and times out. It appears the irc logs are down.
16:52:27 [Ms2ger]
tantek, known issue
16:52:35 [smfr]
jdaggett: propose this as s topic for next week
16:52:47 [tantek]
Ms2ger - shall we update the channel topic accordingly then?
16:53:23 [Ms2ger]
Expectation is that logs will be added retro-actively, I think
16:53:35 [smfr]
sylvaing: there is an organization that has normative dependencies on CSS3 working drafts; it's a problem
16:53:52 [fantasai]
sylvaing: They're objecting to what they see as breaking changes
16:54:30 [anne]
tantek, it will be fixed Saturday
16:54:39 [anne]
tantek, hopefully
16:54:46 [tantek]
thanks anne
16:55:02 [fantasai]
kimberlyblessing: Comcast is also in this group. I'm trying to explain as much as I can to the team how W3C works
16:55:07 [smfr]
glazou: would help to have a liason person communicate with this group
16:56:08 [smfr]
jdaggett: how can they refer to the CSS3 Fonts spec? It used to be 2 specs (fonts, and Web Fonts), and @font-face used to be in Web Fonts
16:56:40 [smfr]
sylvaing: we have to resolve a hard dependency here, since there may be a breaking change here
16:57:23 [smfr]
sylvaing will keep the WG informed
16:57:24 [Zakim]
16:57:35 [kimberlyblessing]
fantasai, thanks :)
16:57:38 [smfr]
Topic: Line Grid proposal
16:57:57 [smfr]
vhardy: fantasai made alternative proposal at Kyoto F2F, but it hasn't been written down
16:58:07 [smfr]
16:58:31 [smfr]
jdaggett: this is not my recollection from Japan
16:58:52 [smfr]
Florian: we discussed why we need it, not the details of the proposal itself
16:59:09 [glazou]
glazou has joined #css
16:59:14 [smfr]
jdaggett: we talked about merging this and the Line Layout spec
17:00:09 [smfr]
jdaggett: suggests Florian post an email describing the issue and referring to the minutes
17:00:39 [johnjan]
This might help for the F2F: A == Hotel from the SVG agenda linked by vhardy above; B == Adobe; C == MS South Lake Union Offices; D == MS Corporate Headquarters; E == MS Bellevue Offices.
17:00:40 [johnjan]
17:00:42 [fantasai]
ACTION fantasai: post summary of proposal to www-style
17:00:43 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-336 - Post summary of proposal to www-style [on Elika Etemad - due 2011-07-06].
17:00:54 [glazou]
johnjan: please send to w3c-css-wg
17:01:18 [smfr]
Topic: Charter
17:01:20 [johnjan]
will do. link got cut off anyway
17:01:27 [smfr]
fantasai: what's the state of the charter
17:01:37 [smfr]
vhardy: we have to discuss the FX part
17:01:38 [sylvaing]
this hotel is certainly ideal as it would be a very short walking distance to our SLU office so I'll aim to locate us there. stay tuned....
17:01:53 [smfr]
move charter discussion to email
