Henry: We may need more time for the profiles document
08:27:56 [Norm]
Norm: We could conceivably have the whole of Friday afternoon if we moved the other stuff around a bit.
08:28:13 [Norm]
Jim: Another face-to-face?
08:28:46 [Norm]
Henry: Far enough in the future that we don't have to plan it today.
08:29:10 [Norm]
Norm: Colocated with XML Prague is probably the next obvious opportunity.
08:30:39 [Norm]
...Anyway, we can focus on that later

08:42:00 [Norm]
Alex raised some questions about alignment with serialization in the XQuery/XSLT 3.0 specs
08:42:25 [Norm]
Norm proposes retitling the "Abandon support for XPath 1.0" to "Align with XQuery/XSLT 3.0 specifications"
08:43:32 [Norm]
Alex: The new template stuff in XSLT 3.0, the ability to use curly braces in element content, is a lot like our p:template
08:44:19 [Norm]
Alex: I also wonder about the issue I raised a while back:
08:44:20 [Norm]
08:45:45 [Norm]
Alex: It would be unfortunate to have different semantics than XSLT
08:47:36 [Norm]
ACTION: A-237-02 Norm to review the curly-brace template stuff in XSLT wrt how it compares to p:template
08:52:01 [Norm]
Alex asks about step inventories
08:52:42 [Norm]
Norm: I think we should have a section where we consider new steps as part of the spec: promoting p:template and friends is one case, adding p:zip/unzip is another that occurs to me.
08:53:28 [Norm]
Some discussion of breaking the spec into two parts.
08:55:32 [Norm]
Some discussion of how versioning would would work.
08:59:10 [Norm]
Norm: Is there anyone opposed, in pricinple, to having two specs?
08:59:42 [Norm]
Jim: I'm not against it, but I wonder if it'll be better for users
08:59:46 [Norm]
Alex: What about writing a primer?
09:00:42 [Norm]
Norm: That would have to be in our deliverables if we put it on the REC track.
