zakim, take up agendum 1
13:36:21 [Zakim]
agendum 1. "Status-check on EARL 1.0 drafts" taken up [from shadi]
13:36:54 [shadi]
13:38:02 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: There have also been some exchanges on the DOAP mailing list.
13:38:38 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: No significant issues from that side.
13:39:44 [shadi]
13:39:51 [shadi]
13:40:15 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Schema and Guide: new drafts dated 5 December.
13:40:41 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: You can recognise the same terms in the Schema and the Guide, but the Guide has more examples, as requested by commenters.
13:41:16 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: more context around the schema; the Schema itself should remain short, e.g. to allow people to quickly look up definitions.
13:41:29 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Anyone looked at these drafts?
13:42:25 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Can people have a look at it this week? Schema: changes are mostly editorial. See also the list of issues in the agenda. So you don't need to do a very detailed review.
13:43:13 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Guide has been updated to section 3.2.
13:43:16 [shadi]
Guide until section 3.2
13:44:41 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Guide: look at approach and tone. Look at section 3.1 and 3.2 more for the approach.
13:45:10 [shadi]
zakim, take up next
13:45:10 [Zakim]
agendum 2. "Status-check on EARL 1.0 test suites" taken up [from shadi]
13:45:24 [shadi]
13:46:10 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Talked about test suites before the holiday break. See the current list at
13:46:30 [shadi]
13:47:09 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Separately, in the WAI-ACT project, we are looking at the accessibility support database and looking to reusing the W3C test framework.
13:47:26 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Fraunhofer team looking at W3C test framework.
13:48:01 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Test framework possibly more geared towards browser-based specs rather than EARL (RDF).
13:48:35 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: WG will later need to decide about installing an instance of this framework or another tool.
13:49:23 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Question to participants: look into your respective projects / implementations to see if you have test files that can be submitted.
13:49:34 [shadi]
13:50:01 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: test 0003 has an error
13:50:18 [cstrobbe]
CS: corrected version available in mailing list archive.
13:50:51 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: developers check that they can output EARL; other tools check if they can consume EARL.
13:52:46 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Feed the tools with different types of input to get different types of output; so, ideally not created by hand.
13:53:16 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: some manual tweaking may be necessary, e.g. no reports for existing websites (replace with
13:53:24 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Timeline?
13:54:26 [cstrobbe]
CV: Most realistic time period is February.
13:55:46 [cstrobbe]
CS: EARL reports can be created right away, but need to check whether all required data are included, e.g. identification of the tool.
13:56:21 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Some variability is OK; 50 EARL reports that have the same structure is not very interesting.
13:56:39 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Every test file would need to demonstrate a different use of EARL.
13:57:32 [cstrobbe]
CS: Timeline: probably starting middle of next week.
13:57:49 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Will also contact Kostas for files from the ACCESSIBLE tools.
13:58:39 [cstrobbe]
CV: Vangelis looking into test harness etc. Maybe also applicable here.
13:59:16 [shadi]
14:03:06 [cstrobbe]
SAZ: Focus should currently be on producing EARL tests rather than finding a tool.
