topic: Outreach to get LC feedback
16:06:05 [dF]
.. no comments on agenda
16:06:06 [Milan]
present+ Milan

.. announcement through linkedIn dicussed
16:06:47 [present_Naoto]
present_Naoto has joined #mlw-lt
16:06:53 [dF]
.. but we now prefer direct contact
16:07:22 [dF]
.. it is importnat to get feedback from the right people to specific sections
16:07:48 [dF]
.. DFKI is tracking the call for reviews
16:08:07 [dF]
.. e.g. mtConfidence by MT people
16:08:27 [dF]
.. It is very bad if you get many hundreds of comments
16:09:08 [dF]
.. but it is also bad to get only a few dozen. This might indicate to the w3c mgmt that the public is not interested
16:09:22 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate fsasaki
16:09:40 [dF]
daveL: reaching out to specific people and also re implementation interest
16:09:52 [dF]
.. the goal is to get feedback re usability
16:10:11 [dF]
fsasaski: Those are good points: implementations and usability
16:10:35 [dF]
daveL: Do we have some wording for the public announcement?
16:10:38 [fsasaki]
16:11:13 [dF]
daveL: technical people might be busy, but if they bosses see the announcement, it might help drive the reviews
16:11:41 [dF]
fsasaki: I posted link to announcement for tech audience, but can be tweaked
16:12:40 [fsasaki]

16:14:05 [fsasaki]
action: arle to nudge serge to send text about last call announcement to arle
16:14:05 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-364 - Nudge serge to send text about last call announcement to arle [on Arle Lommel - due 2012-12-17].
16:14:05 [Arle]
Action: Serge to send Arle his text for public announcement.
16:14:05 [trackbot]
Sorry, couldn't find Serge. You can review and register nicknames at <>.
16:14:50 [dF]
16:15:17 [dF]
fsasaki: another outreach effort before xmas
16:15:37 [dF]
.. localization professionals group on linkedIn
16:16:05 [dF]
Arle: we do not want to confuse people
16:16:21 [dF]
.. this week we should post on the mlw workshop in March
16:16:34 [dF]
.. next week for public review
16:17:02 [dF]
Serge: I would have it the other way round, since there is plenty of time till March
16:17:23 [fsasaki]
topic: Work items needed on the draft
16:17:25 [dF]
Felix: This is important to announce before xmas break to boost speakers
16:17:41 [fsasaki]
topic: handling of last call comments
16:17:59 [fsasaki]
16:18:07 [Serge]
Serge has joined #mlw-lt
16:18:19 [fsasaki]
16:18:32 [dF]
fsasaki: People need to be aware of the comment answering process, it is a painful process but very important
16:18:41 [dF]
.. se the wiki page on the posted link
16:19:04 [dF]
.. the whole WG is automatically on the comment list.
16:19:29 [fsasaki]
16:19:40 [dF]
.. everyone who is not yet formally on the WG should subscribe to the comments list
16:20:13 [dF]
.. Every comment receives a new Issue on the tracker, same as we were tracking the issues bfeore LC
16:20:38 [dF]
.. we now need to be very careful to have track record on changes
16:21:03 [dF]
daveL: Do we really have distinct issue for every comment, or can we group?
16:21:42 [dF]
fsasaki: the baseline is that we need to document resolutions along with comment submitter e-mail reactions
16:22:10 [dF]
..there is no rule on grouping, but it may be as well easier to track them individually even if similar
16:22:37 [dF]
daveL: What if they are distracted and do not reply back after we've made changes
16:22:51 [dF]
fsasaki: again no clear rule..
16:23:11 [fsasaki]
16:23:20 [dF]
.. but if they do not come back within a reasonable timeframe we are OK with documenting that we've tried to get the response
16:24:04 [dF]
fsasaki: This is mainly for co-chairs, as we need to keep track of the comments, can add notes, kewords
16:24:13 [dF]
.. to keep track
16:24:26 [fsasaki]
16:24:31 [dF]
.. the keywords are important for disposition of comments
16:24:38 [fsasaki]
16:24:57 [dF]
.. using this keywords we create a DB dump that is displayed via an XSLT
16:25:40 [dF]
.. this is just an example, as we did not have LC comments, this is just to show how the keywods work
16:26:18 [dF]
.. I am going to update this style sheet so that it reflects the LC
16:26:29 [dF]
.. we have two WG commnets from Yves
16:26:44 [dF]
.. we might find time to cover them today
16:27:29 [dF]
.. at the end of LC we will have a document with all comments resolved, accepted or rejected and all changes editorial, NOT substantial
16:28:00 [dF]
.. it is important to be structured and keep track of the issue #
16:28:15 [dF]
daveL: substantive change would require new LC?
16:29:06 [dF]
fsasaki: yes, it would mean at least 3 week delay, and we do need to wait to the end of the first last call and dicpose of all commnets before issuing a new one
16:29:45 [dF]
.. it actually would not save time, to jump to new LC before disposing of ALL comments from the previous LC
16:29:58 [Yves_]
16:30:00 [fsasaki]
topic: Work items needed on the draft
16:30:49 [dF]
fsasaki: In LC we mean that normative sections are stable
16:31:01 [dF]
.. but sections 1 and 2 are not stable
16:31:20 [dF]
.. Christian sent comments to co-editors
16:31:32 [dF]
.. explanatory material also needs to be right
16:31:37 [fsasaki]
* edit together. in various online editing calls.
16:31:59 [dF]
.. we need to decide on plan for editong these explanatory sections with Christian's comments
16:32:01 [fsasaki]
* find heros who can go through the sections and send the outcome to the group
16:32:28 [dF]
.. editing together works well, but takes a lot of time of many people..

16:33:26 [Fredrik]
Fredrik has joined #mlw-lt
16:33:40 [dF]
.. I'd be happy to take a few, but not before xmas

16:35:21 [dF]

16:35:35 [dF]

16:39:24 [dF]
fsasaki: I propose to move the above till the end of the year
16:39:34 [dF]
.. everybody OK with that?
16:39:39 [fsasaki_]
topic: tests needed
16:39:42 [dF]
Phil: This makes sense
16:40:02 [dF]
fsasaki: I created a wiki page re testing
16:40:27 [fsasaki]
16:40:36 [dF]
.. Olaf had input on that, thanks
16:40:54 [dF]
.. this is autogenerated
16:41:01 [dF]
.. the wiki markup is bad..
16:41:18 [dF]
the baseline it is a table of MUST and MUST NOT statements
16:41:27 [dF]
.. each has a separate row
16:41:49 [dF]
.. column 4 is importnat
16:42:07 [dF]
.. data category owners need to provide tests
16:42:24 [dF]
.. most of the statements are covered with testsuite or schema
16:42:39 [dF]
.. some are not, we need a good stror for them
16:42:50 [dF]
.. we need to explain how to verify these..
16:43:16 [dF]
.. it is not always possible to have a test in the current test suite framework.
16:43:38 [dF]
.. There should be always a good story, why something is not tested
16:44:08 [dF]
Olaf: you saw from my e-mail that about quarter is identical
16:44:25 [dF]
.. I see now that it is because of being auto-generated..
16:44:32 [Marcis]
Marcis has joined #mlw-lt
16:44:47 [dF]
.. pruning down would ease going trough it
16:45:15 [dF]
fsasaki: we are looking for somebody to do the testing for each row
16:45:36 [dF]
.. but testing might not be always required
16:46:01 [dF]
.. feedback on quality from Daniel
16:46:27 [dF]
.. generated many MUST statements that are hard to test in a machine readable way
16:46:52 [dF]
.. still there is a way how to verify, e.g. have examples for human judgement
16:47:19 [dF]
.. is this answer OK?
16:47:30 [dF]
Olaf: I understand
16:47:41 [dF]
action: felix to downsize the table
16:47:42 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-370 - Downsize the table [on Felix Sasaki - due 2012-12-17].
16:48:10 [dF]
fsasaki: looking for volunteers to address rows
16:48:25 [Arle]
Arle for quality rows
16:48:31 [dF]
.. please type your name in IRC aginst data categories
16:49:09 [dF]
Action: Arle to dispose of quality related rows in the table
16:49:09 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-371 - Dispose of quality related rows in the table [on Arle Lommel - due 2012-12-17].
16:49:30 [dF]
Phil: still unclear, would we provide example files?
16:49:52 [dF]
fsasaki: Eve with example files, the machine test might not be possible..
16:50:16 [dF]
.. how could a machine decide if something is e.g. semantically acurate
16:50:27 [dF]
.. we can define test for human testers
16:50:40 [dF]
.. is it clear?
16:50:51 [dF]
Phil: It is
16:51:22 [dF]
.. Lot of quality related rows, is that a generation issues?
16:51:57 [dF]
fsasaki: This is due to automatic generation, not very useful in the current state..
16:52:18 [philr]
I will take alook at the 5 or 6 loc quality related ones.
16:52:31 [philr]
s/alook/a look
16:53:04 [dF]
action: Phil to dispose of quality issues related ones
16:53:04 [trackbot]

16:53:40 [dF]
daveL: we probaly have the positive statements covered by the test suite
16:53:55 [dF]
.. we probably also need to go through the negative
16:54:02 [fsasaki]
topic: best practices topics
16:54:14 [fsasaki]
16:54:43 [fsasaki]
16:54:56 [dF]

16:55:06 [dF]
.. se the posted link..
16:55:20 [dF]
.. BP are not mandatory
16:55:30 [dF]
.. they need manpower
16:55:51 [dF]
.. if someone needs editing set up, please contact co-chairs
16:56:05 [dF]
Arle: I will work on quality
16:56:20 [dF]
fsasaki: quality is not yet on the list
16:56:46 [dF]
Arle: I need to work on it anything for QT launchpad, so thet group gets it for free..
16:56:55 [Clemens]
Felix, I've to go... is there something you need me for, now?
16:57:03 [dF]
fsasaki: The WG is not just publication cahnnel
16:57:15 [dF]
.. it is a time consuming process
16:57:43 [dF]
.. even though not nornmative it needs to be drafted, reviewed and OKed by the group
16:58:06 [dF]
daveL: I agree we do not try and revive the requirements document
16:58:19 [dF]
.. we should adress high level use cases
16:58:41 [dF]
.. I'd look into provenance..
16:59:03 [dF]
.. Another worthu topic would be integration of text analytics into MT
16:59:12 [fsasaki]

Olaf: Does it mean to get to all gree by next week?
17:01:58 [dF]
fsasaki: no, we have milestones
17:02:57 [dF]
.. implementation plan is not about the colours at this stage, but about meeting the milestones as sepcified above the table
17:03:33 [dF]
.. we want conformant tests, but now it is about making progress
17:04:00 [dF]

17:06:47 [dF]
fsasaki: it is not important to have loads of stuff, one or two paragraphs is OK
17:08:10 [dF]
Arle: no template
17:08:18 [dF]
.. just vanila html
