16:05:21 [Arle]
Dave: After discussion with ???, I don't think the text analytic annotation works by itself. If you apply the same annotation to a span for different purposes, we run into overwrite problems. Flags don't help unless you got standoff markup.

.. The other suggestion, made last week, is that MT confidence is fundamentally different. MT should not be merged with the others.

.. Should we consider having a confidence score in those data categories? E.g., for terminology, disambiguation, domain. Although domain is very complex.
16:06:54 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate fsasaki
16:07:07 [fsasaki]
present+ fredrik
16:07:19 [Arle]
.. Disambiguation and terminology might have their own optional confidence attribute. If you include it you need an ITS rules defined in the document for that data category.
16:07:28 [Arle]
Felix: Do you need more time?
16:07:35 [mdelolmo]
mdelolmo has joined #mlw-lt
16:08:00 [Arle]
Dave: We don't have a conclusion, so yes. Can we add an optional elements to terminology from a backward compatibility standpoint?
16:08:02 [Arle]
Felix: Yes.
16:08:10 [fsasaki]
topic: Work schedule update
16:08:12 [Arle]
Dave: Then I'll propose it on the list.
16:08:30 [Arle]
Felix: First week of December for last call.
16:08:39 [Arle]
..The dates are on the wiki.
16:08:44 [fsasaki]
16:09:15 [Arle]
.. After the last call, we have six weeks to get comments from outside and then we will discuss at our face to face.
16:09:51 [Arle]
Felix: Christian, can you introduce yourself?
16:10:42 [Arle]
Christian: I work for SAP, been working on ITS for 15 years. Worked on multilingual content production. Background on NLP. My background that was noted was with terminology, work on interchange.
16:10:52 [Arle]
.. Also worked on content interchange similar to XLIFF.
16:10:58 [Arle]
.. Worked on XLIFF.
16:11:08 [Arle]
.. Contributed to ITS 1.0.
16:11:34 [Arle]

David: I missed the last XLIFF TC call, but I believe the last call covered extensibility in <mrk> and <note>. Yves, can you update us?
16:12:45 [Arle]
.. I'm worried that we may not be able to extend <mrk>.
16:12:56 [Milan]
Milan has joined #mlw-lt
16:13:03 [Arle]
Yves: It would be better to have extensibility, but people would be happy with a module.
16:13:10 [GeorgiosPetasis]
GeorgiosPetasis has joined #mlw-lt
16:13:28 [Arle]
David: The problem is that will take too long, so our markup would be illegal until that is defined.
16:13:49 [Arle]
Yves: I think you will find a lot of opposition to extending <mrk> extensibility.
16:14:11 [Arle]
Yves: If we can't add extensibility from our side that is an XLIFF problem. We should assume we can do it.
16:15:47 [daveL]
16:16:01 [Arle]
Dave: You wanted to keep a pointer in for standoff markup.
16:16:27 [Arle]
.. Scroll down in that link to where provenance is covered. There is something called phase group.
16:16:59 [fsasaki]
16:17:13 [fsasaki]
search for "Or (standoff markup)"
16:17:16 [Arle]
.. You could write a rule that uses pointers in provenance to map to these. These would be in addition to stand-off. The question is if we worry about doing this explicitly.
16:18:04 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate fsasaki
16:18:21 [Arle]
Des: A question about this. Looking at the document, it looks like the mappings are fairly stable.
16:18:39 [Arle]
Yves: Probably yes. There is no show-stopper. I think most are mapped correctly.
16:19:27 [fsasaki]
topic: 2013 planning
16:19:27 [Arle]
David: I have an action to color-code things that are dependent on unstable things. But we needed to map this to see if there are show-stoppers.
16:19:36 [Arle]
Felix: Skip this topic.
16:19:46 [fsasaki]
action: felix to update the wiki with 2013 planning
16:19:46 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-285 - Update the wiki with 2013 planning [on Felix Sasaki - due 2012-11-19].
16:20:01 [fsasaki]
topic: Data category overview table
16:20:11 [Arle]
Felix: Think about any other venues we should go to. Also consider location for the final workshop in 2013.
16:20:18 [fsasaki]
16:20:51 [Arle]
Felix: Proposed that we replace this table in 6.1 with what Shaun and Olaf-Michael started. Thoughts?
16:21:19 [Arle]
Shaun: The table there now has information not present in my table. Combining them would make a table that is too wide.
16:21:39 [Arle]
Dave: Both have useful information, but combining them makes the table too big.
16:22:27 [Arle]
.. Jirka provided an algorithm to do the mapping from XML attribute names to HTML names.
16:22:50 [Arle]
Felix: So you think that Shaun and Olaf-Michael’s table as an appendix?
16:23:02 [Des]
Arle, for minuting purpose, my quesstion was specific to the XLIFF 1.2 specification. I understand the 2.0 spec is still in a state of flux. Apologies for my poor audio on the question.
16:23:15 [fsasaki]
action: shaun to put data category table into non-normative appendix in the spec
16:23:15 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-286 - Put data category table into non-normative appendix in the spec [on Shaun McCance - due 2012-11-19].
16:23:32 [Arle]
s/fairly stable/fairly stable for XLIFF 1.2
16:24:13 [Arle]
Shaun: For some of the categories there are many different properties. Do any of the categories have complex defaults, or can we do it just on data categories?
16:24:20 [Arle]
Felix: I think data categories are fine as the basis.
16:24:22 [fsasaki]
topic: Test suite format
16:24:45 [Arle]
Felix: Who can summarize the discussions?
16:25:35 [Arle]
Leroy: If you look at LocNote, the discussion is whether we have LocNote and LocNotePointer or just locNote.
16:25:48 [fsasaki]
various versions are summarized here
16:25:58 [fsasaki]
(versions = with or without "pointer")
16:26:09 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate fsasaki
16:26:48 [Arle]
Shaun: If you want to know whether the test output identifies a pointer, the suite doesn't test whether you are able to find the relative expression from the pointer. That's another test of capability.
16:27:04 [Arle]
.. But I'm not sure what the output from the test would be, a path or the value.

Yves: For 1.0, we put the string value.
16:27:50 [Arle]
Felix: I was first for having pointers, but am fine with removing them.
16:28:27 [Arle]
Leroy: Second question. <audio trouble>
16:28:39 [Arle]
Yves: That's probably better since you don't know where information is coming from.
16:28:58 [Arle]
Leroy: Do I keep its- or get rid of it?
16:29:13 [Arle]
.. So I'll standardize to the XML output.
16:29:47 [DomJones1]
arle: do you want me to scribe?
16:30:22 [pnietoca]
I believe that the agreement al Lyon was we use neither its- nor its: am I correct?

16:34:00 [fsasaki]
topic: Too many pointers / global rules
16:34:16 [fsasaki]
16:35:02 [Arle]
Felix: Discussed a while ago, but propose to close this issue for now. May come back on a category-specific basis.
16:35:28 [Arle]
.. Hope we could have actions for data category implementers to look at specific categories to demonstrate their use.
16:36:39 [Arle]
.. I would like to separate these issues. But over Christmas we may get more issues.
16:37:33 [Arle]
Dave: For MT Confidence score, that is the only one that I think you need a global rule so you can give confidence to attribute text. People might want to look at that one.
16:37:52 [Arle]
.. If you want to include pointers to support things, XLIFF examples would be very good/useful.
16:38:10 [Arle]
.. I'll post these suggestions on the mailing list.
16:38:55 [Arle]
Felix: Let's move forward to having more data category-specific issues. Can we close the general issue?
16:39:23 [Arle]
Dave: Data categories with pointers need to be written up so that we don't mix up pointers and normal global rules.
16:39:30 [Arle]
.. Is that still an objective?
16:39:43 [Arle]
Felix: It is still in the draft as a comment. So we will get to it.
16:39:49 [fsasaki]
close issue-51
16:39:49 [trackbot]
ISSUE-51 There are too many pointer attributes and global rules in general closed

Created ACTION-289 - Make action items for data category owners about global rules [on Felix Sasaki - due 2012-11-19].
16:40:12 [fsasaki]
topic: Remove "HTML5 inline" markup for standoff markup
16:40:22 [fsasaki]
16:40:55 [fsasaki]
"Example 85: Annotating an issue in XML with local standoff markup and a global rule"
16:41:04 [fsasaki]
Example 86: Annotating an issue in HTML with local standoff markup
16:41:39 [fsasaki]
<script type=application/xml id=its-standoff-1>
16:41:58 [Arle]
Felix: We want to use the XML content in the script instead of its- attributes.
16:43:49 [Arle]
.. The standup markup would no longer be available as its- attributes.
16:44:29 [fsasaki]
arle: seems reasonable
16:44:56 [Arle]
Phil: I've checked and I think this was OK.
16:45:07 [dF]
dF has joined #mlw-lt
16:45:12 [dF]
Reviewed the mtConfidence wording as we speak, looks good to me.. also the toolRef wording
16:45:46 [fsasaki]
"id=its-standoff-1" - change to "lq1"
16:46:08 [fsasaki]
topic: Rename "translation provenance"
16:46:17 [Arle]
Arle: Does that mean that each markup will be its own script?
16:46:19 [Arle]
Yves: Yes.
16:46:36 [fsasaki]
16:47:13 [Arle]
Felix: Provenance is widely relevance. Can we switch this to agentProvenance?
16:47:16 [leroy_]
my second question for the record was to remove its-* from local html output and have it aligned with the global output for html. It was decided to remove its-* and align the output.
16:47:17 [fsasaki]
"translationProvenanceRecordsRef" > "ProvenanceRecordsRef"
16:47:33 [fsasaki]
"transPerson"> "Person"
16:47:33 [Arle]
16:48:51 [Arle]

16:49:30 [fsasaki]
16:49:33 [Arle]
Felix: That's the latest thread/draft
16:50:19 [Arle]
Dave: This is ongoing. The draft is to gain clarity. In Lyon we thought to use an IRI.
16:51:24 [Arle]
.. Felix, you asked what we gain from it. It is difficult to agree on what the content of the toolsRef would be. We could encode things in the IRI, but it would be difficult. If we don't say what the IRI points to.
16:51:51 [Arle]
.. I don't think we have consensus yet, but the content I made is a basis for discussion.
16:52:25 [Arle]
Felix: Since we've not had time to consider this, let's leave it for the next call. Then next week we can add to the spec.
16:52:49 [Arle]
Dave: Should it be able to refer to non-ITS data categories?
16:54:03 [Arle]
Yves: Let's leave undefined things out of the spec.

16:54:58 [Arle]
.. The editorial notes need to be addressed.
16:55:28 [Arle]
.. If we move to last call in December, we have to be fine with the content with no open issues. There are still many explanatory sections that are not up to date. Esp. 1 and 2.
16:56:06 [Arle]
We need to explain that non-normative sections will be worked on during the last call.

s/We need to/Felix: We need to/
16:56:59 [Arle]
Felix: For those who are new to the group, please make comments about normative features. Because there is a lot of mail traffic, look at the draft and see what needs more work in the normative sections.
16:57:28 [Arle]
.. Please remember the upcoming calls.
