Topic: Ruby and Directionality in ITS2.0
16:24:38 [aphillip]
16:24:51 [fsasaki]
16:25:08 [aphillip]
... had f2f last week
16:25:08 [aphillip]
felix: thanks for all the comments
16:25:08 [aphillip]
... went through everything
16:25:16 [aphillip]
... wrote replies
16:25:16 [aphillip]
... editing to follow
16:25:27 [aphillip]
... thanks for the non-i18n comments
16:25:39 [aphillip]
... wanted to ensure we mentioned
16:25:55 [aphillip]
felix: don't know best way to address ruby/direction comments
16:26:13 [aphillip]
... in terms of ruby did see consensus whether to clarify or drop
16:26:21 [aphillip]
... both ruby and direction are in flux in html5
16:26:42 [aphillip]
... implementers: could make normative, could take from its1.0
16:27:00 [aphillip]
... but maybe a bad idea to make normative stuff that isn't in html5
16:27:07 [aphillip]
... talking to PLH
16:27:18 [aphillip]
... and robin berjon helping edit
16:27:26 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate aphillip
16:27:52 [aphillip]
felix: keep normative, but find way to update
16:27:56 [aphillip]
... ??
16:29:02 [aphillip]
addison: direction still same, only being extended (can extend later???)
16:29:08 [aphillip]
norbert: keep as 1.0, but add note and refer to changes coming?
16:29:31 [aphillip]
richard: will html5 finalize in time for its spec? probably no
16:29:36 [aphillip]
... and can't be guaranteed
16:30:11 [aphillip]
... with @dir, small issue in my mind
16:30:32 [aphillip]
... at a global level, having such-and-such direction on an element is fine
16:30:43 [aphillip]
... its suggests local market for rlo/lro?
16:31:31 [aphillip]
richard: ruby also has this issue
16:31:43 [aphillip]
... local markup is out of sync
16:31:57 [fsasaki]
16:32:14 [aphillip]
felix: look at latest spec
16:32:16 [fsasaki]
its:rubyRule selector="/text/body/img[1]/@alt"> <its:rubyText>World Wide Web Consortium</its:rubyText> </its:rubyRule>
16:32:48 [aphillip]
... haven't seen anyone write xpath expression for ruby
16:33:04 [aphillip]
... no one hsa impmented, rendering, etc.
16:33:13 [aphillip]
16:33:20 [aphillip]
... what would be the value?
16:33:36 [aphillip]
norbert: because ruby not implements, should just drop?
16:33:50 [aphillip]
richard: step back a sec.
16:34:03 [aphillip]
... had in ITS1.0; were there implementations?
16:34:08 [aphillip]
... do those count, if so?
16:34:13 [fsasaki]
16:34:29 [aphillip]
felix: impl tests for serializing data model
16:34:30 [fsasaki]
16:34:42 [aphillip]
felix: if you process global ruby rules
16:34:48 [aphillip]
... could make tests for 2.0
16:35:09 [aphillip]
... no take up for past 5 years
16:35:36 [aphillip]
felix: XLIFF 2.0 wants directionality
16:38:34 [aphillip]
addison: unsurprising no ruby impl: assymetry in source/target
16:39:08 [aphillip]
felix: time/funding pressure
16:39:18 [aphillip]
... not stable at 2.0, have a note
16:39:43 [aphillip]
... plan for 2.1 that could provide normative representation
16:39:57 [aphillip]
... for direction and ruby for non-html environments (e.g. xliff)
16:41:14 [aphillip]
norbert: just drop ruby because can't go to rec without 2 interop impls
16:41:19 [aphillip]
addison: +1
16:41:33 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate aphillip
16:41:45 [aphillip]
richard: what to do with directionality?
16:42:07 [aphillip]
... what's there is "important" and continues to be relevant, so keep
16:42:35 [aphillip]
... is it that hard to implement??
16:42:46 [fsasaki]
16:43:31 [aphillip]
felix: instability of html5 is only problem
16:43:43 [aphillip]
... express in a note that changes could impact it
16:44:03 [aphillip]
norbert: richard, you mentioned rlo/lro problem?
16:44:15 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate aphillip
16:44:25 [aphillip]
richard: just drop lro/rlo bit?
16:44:39 [fsasaki]
16:44:57 [aphillip]
felix: the 'meat' of directionality is just four bullet points
16:45:14 [aphillip]
... so can parse whatever is there into xliff
16:45:56 [aphillip]
richard: think that xhmtl2 and css both have rlo/lro
16:46:38 [aphillip]
... local elements could have overrides in block elements
16:46:45 [aphillip]
.... but html5 doesn't work that way

felix: just transport values, don't translate them
16:48:51 [aphillip]
... XLIFF2 being developed
16:49:03 [aphillip]
... question whether being transported or being interpreted
16:49:35 [aphillip]
... but ITS is just the transport, not making this decision
