16:10:54 [adrianba]
... first CfC to publish heartbeat drafts - there were 2 objections but we believe the correct thing to do is to proceed over those objections - this is a WD and does not require consensus
16:11:09 [adrianba]
... working out how to get these published
16:11:14 [MikeSmith]
q+ to talk
16:11:40 [paulc]
The Chairs decision on the heartbeat publication is in:
16:11:42 [adrianba]
MikeSmith: we had some private discussions about the publications
16:11:47 [Zakim]
16:11:56 [adrianba]
... the chairs were asking me as team contact for the WG to prepare the WDs
16:12:02 [adrianba]
... for publication today
16:12:08 [adrianba]
... i spent a lot of time doing that
16:12:09 [Zakim]
16:12:18 [glenn]
zakim, ??p0 is glenn
16:12:18 [Zakim]
+glenn; got it
16:12:18 [Zakim]
16:12:23 [adrianba]
... but we had some disagreement about two issues
16:12:43 [adrianba]
... around Hixie spec'ing out the behaviour for dialog element
16:13:03 [adrianba]
... change proposal open for 3 months or more
16:13:10 [adrianba]
... all agree that we need to add that
16:13:20 [adrianba]
... second is for allow-popups on iframe sandbox
16:13:37 [adrianba]
... again no disagreement because webkit and IE are already implementing support for that feature
16:13:48 [adrianba]
... don't have much choice but to spec the behaviour that is implemented
16:14:02 [adrianba]
... we don't have the spec for that behaviour because the implementers didn't provide a spec for it
16:14:15 [adrianba]
... and expect that Hixie is supposed to reverse engineer their implementation
16:14:37 [adrianba]
... I think that that is a significant amount of work - not a matter of adding a paragraph of spec text
16:14:40 [janina]
janina has joined #html-wg
16:14:53 [adrianba]
... requires testing and attempting to document what they implemented
16:15:04 [Zakim]
16:15:11 [adrianba]
... that's a significant amount of work
16:15:12 [janina]
zakim, P11 is Janina
16:15:12 [Zakim]
sorry, janina, I do not recognize a party named 'P11'
16:15:34 [adrianba]
... WG has decided the spec should include a feature but not assessed the amount of work involved
16:15:55 [adrianba]
... we can't do that and publish today or a week from now
16:15:58 [janina]
zakim, ??P11 is Janina
16:15:58 [Zakim]
+Janina; got it
16:16:09 [adrianba]
... we have to decide when to publish with that
16:16:28 [adrianba]
... same with dialog - CP is not sufficient for implementers to add the dialog in their browsers
16:16:46 [adrianba]
... so there's a large amount of additional work required to implement those decisions
16:16:54 [adrianba]
... it's not going to happen in a week or two weeks
16:17:20 [adrianba]
... not sure how much time it will take to do this given the other work such as canvas Path work
16:17:37 [adrianba]
... i would love to be able to give a date when we can do that
16:17:39 [paulc]
The Chairs are planning to meet after this meeting to discuss this status from Mike.
16:17:42 [adrianba]
... but i can't
16:18:22 [adrianba]
... we have the heartbeat obligation to publish at 3 months and we have the obligation from the decision policy that the editor gets something done in time for us to publish an updated WD along with everything else
16:18:32 [adrianba]
... such as the open accessibility issues
16:18:57 [adrianba]
... i suggest we go ahead and publish without these 2 issues resolved
16:18:58 [adrianba]
16:19:04 [adrianba]
ack MikeSmith
16:19:04 [Zakim]
MikeSmith, you wanted to talk
16:19:18 [adrianba]
... i think dialog is a feature
16:19:24 [mjs]
16:19:34 [adrianba]
... i don't think anyone is demanding that we implement dialog for HTML5
16:19:40 [adrianba]
... do we need it for stable HTML5?
16:19:43 [paulc]
16:19:55 [adrianba]
... same thing could be said for allow-popups
16:20:23 [adrianba]
... i don't think this needs to be done in the next 2 months - could be pushed off to the next version of HTML
16:20:52 [adrianba]
... in the meantime we have w3c obligation to publish at regular intervals and we've neglected that for last 6 months or more
16:21:18 [adrianba]
... could still publish WD with lack of dialog and sandbox allow-popups noted as known issues
16:21:28 [adrianba]
... i think holding up publication is a bad idea
16:21:43 [MikeSmith]
16:21:45 [adrianba]
mjs: like other people to comment
16:22:09 [adrianba]
... chairs need to decide if we publish today without these changes or wait
16:22:19 [adrianba]
... would like to hear input
16:22:28 [Stevef]
16:22:35 [mjs]
ack adrianba
16:23:21 [MikeSmith]
q+ to respond to adrian
16:23:26 [mjs]
ack mjs
16:23:38 [adrianba]
adrianba: i don't recall seeing a request for more information about the allow-popup sandbox proposal
16:24:04 [adrianba]
mjs: i talked to edward about the dialog proposal and i believe he would prefer to see publication without that for the time being
16:24:36 [mark]
mark has joined #html-wg
16:24:48 [adrianba]
edward: the details missing that prevent the editor completing it are waiting for info from the css wg - i think in the interest of getting heartbeat doc out i'm in favour of publishing
16:24:53 [mjs]
ack paulc
16:25:14 [MikeSmith]
q+ to say that the current dialog from proposal from ted+hixie is not fully implementable as specified due to ambiguity in the CP
16:25:30 [adrianba]
paulc: the chairs have a meeting scheduled after this call to discuss this matter
16:25:50 [adrianba]
... none of the points that mike or ted raised are blocking
16:26:05 [adrianba]
... to tell us after this time that there is a need for more information is a problem
16:26:11 [adrianba]
... suggest we move off this topic and move on
16:26:20 [mjs]
ack Stevef
16:26:57 [adrianba]
SteveF: i can't speak to the popup stuff
16:27:21 [adrianba]
... i think we should publish the heartbeat but i disagree that this should be pushed off with no timeframe to - would like to see in html5
16:27:24 [wcarr]
16:27:27 [mjs]
ack MikeSmith
16:27:27 [Zakim]
MikeSmith, you wanted to respond to adrian and to say that the current dialog from proposal from ted+hixie is not fully implementable as specified due to ambiguity in the CP
16:27:31 [adrianba]
s/this should/dialog should/
16:28:17 [adrianba]
MikeSmith: the current proposal from ted which was put forward in good faith ironically is not sufficient for dialog
16:28:28 [adrianba]
... there are issues around how do we make this work with full screen for example
16:28:41 [paulc]
16:28:49 [mjs]
16:28:53 [adrianba]
... this is a proposed feature in the platform and we need to make it work with dialog
16:28:59 [adrianba]
... and a number of other features
16:29:07 [adrianba]
... that is blocking for dialog
16:29:27 [adrianba]
... that's a considerable amount of work
16:29:35 [anne]
anne has joined #html-wg
16:31:08 [paulc]
I disagree with Mike's assertion that we cannot implement <dialog> due to the need to integrate with another feature. We should implement and then file bugs to gain that alignment.
16:31:12 [mjs]
16:31:20 [mjs]
ack wcarr
16:32:05 [adrianba]
wcarr: i hope we publish heartbeats as soon as possible and more quickly so they're not behind the ED
16:32:17 [mjs]
ack paulc
16:32:24 [adrianba]
... if we did it more quickly issues like this wouldn't be so important because another would be along within 6 weeks or so
16:33:00 [adrianba]
paulc: i disagree strongly with Mike that we can't implement a WG decision because some people think we need to decide how to solve the problem with another immature spec
16:33:14 [adrianba]
... if people think there's a problem becuase it isn't aligned with another feature then they should file bugs
16:33:20 [mjs]
ack mjs
16:33:23 [adrianba]
... but to say we shouldn't move forward is inappropriate
16:33:37 [MikeSmith]
q+ to say that many WG decisions are not implentable
16:34:00 [adrianba]
mjs: Mike and Ted , you mentioned some issues and Mike you've probably had conversations with Ian about clarifications
16:34:24 [adrianba]
... if you think there are things needing clarification please get it onto the mailing list because people may be able to provide information
16:34:36 [MikeSmith]
16:34:39 [adrianba]
... i encourage you to communicate those to the group as a whole
16:34:42 [Stevef]
16:34:52 [mjs]
ack MikeSmith
16:34:52 [Zakim]
MikeSmith, you wanted to say that many WG decisions are not implentable
16:35:37 [adrianba]
MikeSmith: as far as WG decisions being implementable i can say as someone who has made a good faith attempt to implement a decision that the CP often do not contain sufficient detail in order to implement anything unambiguously
16:36:22 [adrianba]
... for example, Julian said he intended his proposal to be open-ended about how to make the spec better
16:36:32 [adrianba]
... the CP does not unambigiously document what should be changed
16:36:46 [adrianba]
... chairs agreed that they'll accept the CP because no one objected
16:36:51 [adrianba]
... but it was never implementable
16:37:14 [adrianba]
mjs: this should be something to put in the mailing list
16:37:36 [adrianba]
MikeSmith: please do not put the responsibility on me for this
16:38:15 [adrianba]
mjs: i'm asking for examples on the list and if there are process changes you think would improve things please suggest that
16:38:20 [adrianba]
... please get this in the mailing list
16:38:24 [mjs]
ack Stevef
16:38:26 [adrianba]
MikeSmith: thanks, i will do that
16:38:54 [adrianba]
SteveF: Hixie adds stuff to the spec all the time that is half formed or does not have agreement or consensus
16:39:11 [adrianba]
... we have dialog that has some consensus so i don't see why it can't be added and then the details worked out
16:39:20 [adrianba]
... chairs and the WG needs to work this out
16:39:35 [adrianba]
... think the argument is spurious that it can't be added because it's not complete
16:39:44 [paulc]
+1 to SteveF points
16:39:58 [adrianba]
... menu item for example is in there but hasn't been implemented (except context menu not according to spec)
16:40:06 [adrianba]
... doesn't need to be fully formed to be in the spec
16:40:16 [adrianba]
... not the way Hixie works, why should CPs have to be up to that standard
16:40:32 [adrianba]
mjs: thanks for the input on this topic
16:40:42 [adrianba]
... moving on in the interests of time
16:41:12 [adrianba]
mjs: CfC on the F2F meeting - no objections on coordinated meeting with HTML and WebApps WG in May in Silicon Valley

16:42:04 [trackbot]
16:42:22 [adrianba]
mjs: chairs noted 2 proposals agreed on one aspect, something already in the spec
16:42:36 [adrianba]
... CfC to take that off the table so time wouldn't be spent on something everyone agrees on
16:42:54 [adrianba]
... sent feedback on proposals asking to remove those points and justify everything else
16:43:03 [adrianba]
