Topic: Review of open action items
15:11:05 [alexmilowski]
alexmilowski has joined #xproc
15:11:15 [Norm]
Norm: Is anyone's action blocked by someone else that they'd like to bring up?
15:11:27 [Norm]
Norm: I don't hear any, so I'll try to get a summary of open actions ready by early next week.
15:12:23 [Norm]
Jim: Feel free to ask if you'd like help; I did get two of them finished. I updated the charter link and I asked Geert if we could use his pipeline.
15:12:29 [Norm]
Jim: I'm working on the rest of them.
15:12:53 [jfuller_]
15:13:02 [jfuller_]
15:13:15 [Norm]
Jim: Geert also pointed out that there's another application, link above.
15:13:32 [jfuller_]
Gerrit Imsieke created epubcheck
15:14:33 [Norm]
Henry: Alex and I are going to try to setup a website that lets people try out XProc pipelines on their data.
15:14:47 [Norm]
Norm: That's terrific.
15:15:00 [Norm]
Topic: XML processor profiles planning
15:15:24 [Norm]
Norm: I think the status is we have a bunch of resolutions and that we need to get a new draft out.
15:15:26 [Norm]
Henry: Yes.
15:15:32 [Norm]
Jim: I think we have actions for everything.
15:15:51 [Norm]
Norm: So, Henry, you'll take a pass?
15:15:53 [Norm]
Henry: Yes.
15:16:37 [Norm]
Norm/JIm: We'll send stuff to you in the short term, Henry.
15:16:39 [Norm]
Henry: Ok.
15:17:35 [Norm]
Some discussion of using github.
15:18:13 [Norm]
Henry: I think we're probably too late in the life cycle.
15:18:21 [Norm]
...Maybe for
15:18:29 [Norm]
Jim: Fair enough.
15:19:11 [Norm]
Norm: No, I think that's probably right. Github would be a vast improvement over CVS, but it would be a lot of churn late in the day right now.

Topic: Use cases/requirements/chartering for
15:19:36 [jfuller_]
15:20:07 [jfuller_]
freshest charter link
15:20:44 [Norm]
Henry: Unless I'm mistaken, Liam will be contacting the chair about the rechartering.
15:21:01 [Norm]
...He'll tell us what he wants.
15:21:27 [Norm]
Henry: I'm not disagreeing, that's part of the reason that we started the wiki.
15:21:59 [Norm]
Norm: Ok, using the wiki is fine by me.
15:22:17 [Norm]
Henry: We're still in an expansive phase. No bar is required to make an entry in the wiki. We're in a gathering phase.
15:22:39 [Norm]
...At some point the chair should declare we have enough and start pruning.
15:23:33 [Norm]
Norm rambles a bit.
15:23:50 [Norm]
Alex: There were a couple of themes: improving usability and looking at steps that should be standardized.
15:24:20 [Norm]
...there's also an aspect of integration that we touched one.
15:24:23 [Cornelia]
Cornelia has joined #xproc
15:25:12 [Norm]
Henry: Another question at that level, is "is this 1.1 or 2.0?"
15:25:20 [Norm]
...How much do we care about backward compatibility.
15:25:45 [Norm]
...How much is this fixing the problems we know about and how much is it we know better and are going to start again
15:27:13 [Norm]
Henry: One area is simplifying parameters. We might just get rid of some things that no one has used.
15:28:00 [Norm]
Topic: Any other business?
15:28:22 [Norm]
Jim: I don't know if it was clear from the minutes, but we did sit down for a while with the XQuery WG. Henry, maybe it would be good to describe that meeting.
15:29:29 [Norm]
Henry: Here's my spin: over the last 6 months, I've had occasion to look at three or more XRX implementations. They're all lousy pipeline languages. They all would be much better if they were XProc. I think Liam's question is, what would XProc need to do to be better at choreographic between the web and XML databases.
15:29:48 [Norm]
...In particular choreographing XSLT and XQuery to build "lower case 'w'" web service.s
15:29:54 [Norm]
15:30:02 [Norm]
...This comes under the integration heading.
15:32:16 [Norm]
Jim: Did we get any requests over email for things we have to go through?
15:32:31 [Norm]
Norm: I don't think so.
15:32:37 [Norm]
Jim: No, looks like they're all from October.
