17:15:48 [fielding]
17:15:51 [npdoty]
kulick, even with Proposal 3 (silence), it could be done, we just wouldn't have a common definition/signal yet
17:15:53 [moneill2]
matthias:, p2 is define it in TPE, p2 not defined in TPE but may be in TPC
17:16:08 [Chris_IAB]
schunter, would it be possible to have the proposal owners present their proposals on this call, before we move to Cfo?
17:16:10 [fielding]
ditto what Matthias just said --- the only difference is that proposal 2 has a definition in TPE

17:17:32 [JackHobaugh]
Roy, you are cutting out.
17:17:34 [Zakim]

17:17:37 [kulick]
didnt get all of that
17:17:53 [moneill2]
fielding: i suggest other contexts other tahn 3rd party
17:17:55 [fielding]
will irc
17:18:10 [JackHobaugh]
no echo, but Roy's VoIP appears to be somewhat clipped.
17:18:15 [fielding]
yes, everything else is okay

Chapell has joined #DNT
17:21:09 [fielding]
To clarify what I meant to say, the "usage in third-party contexts" part of proposal 2 does not match definition of context. Saying "other contexts" for 3 would be better.
17:21:25 [moneill2]
robsherman: idea is to preserve 1 and 3 qualifiers, important to have them
17:21:58 [npdoty]
how about "usage as a first-party" and "usage as a third-party"? to avoid "context" altogether, if we're defining that term in a different way
17:22:01 [dsinger]
given the confusion over the meaning of 'context' I agree to remove it from the third party defn
17:22:17 [moneill2]
robsherman: phrase "other contexts" not meaningful
17:22:20 [Zakim]

17:22:30 [fielding]
npdoty, fine as well (note that I still don't want these definitions in the spec, I just want to make them less bad)
17:23:01 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: try for consensus first before CfO
17:23:16 [Zakim]
17:23:18 [schunter]
17:23:30 [moneill2]
robsherman: maybe we can resolve this with Roy offline
17:23:45 [Chris_IAB]
robsherman, good idea :)
17:23:48 [dsinger]
If Roy is OK after his edit, I am OK with it
17:23:51 [npdoty]
we've discussed it a couple times now, yeah? are there suggestions for getting those positions to agreement?
17:24:09 [Chris_IAB]
17:24:11 [Chapell]
17:24:29 [moneill2]
matthias: do we have this in general for all TPCs or for each
17:24:35 [fielding]
I still would prefer that it not be in TPE at all. I am just trying to get the text to the point where either decision would not conflict with other WG decisions.
17:24:37 [schunter]
17:24:38 [npdoty]
ack Chris_IAB
17:25:07 [robsherman]
The suggestion was that we modify the text proposal to address Roy's concern, and if we can address his concern there is no need for two proposals.
17:25:31 [dsinger]
yes, it's architectural, but the TPE needs to make sense and provide uniformity of signalling, by itself'
17:25:32 [npdoty]
I've changed to "usage as a * party" in the wiki
17:25:48 [Chapell]
+1 Chris_IAB
17:25:59 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: have to have a solid line between the documents, maybe most contentios bits should be in TPC
17:26:37 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: its about how to send signals
17:26:52 [bryan]
+1 - The TPE is about the protocol, not the intent or adherence to the semantics
17:27:08 [npdoty]
17:27:11 [schunter]
17:27:14 [moneill2]
matthias: how do we reach consensus?
17:27:15 [npdoty]
17:27:27 [schunter]
ack Ch
17:27:28 [npdoty]
ack Chapell
17:27:57 [npdoty]
do we mean "edits" like the usage/context thing?
17:28:01 [moneill2]
Chapell: can live with Roy's proposal, will participate id OK with them
17:28:03 [npdoty]
I believe the updated text is:
17:28:04 [npdoty]
While different compliance regimes can define requirements and uses of certain qualifiers, and a particular compliance regime might not require the use of qualifiers for particular activities to be permitted, the following qualifiers have the defined, descriptive meanings.
17:28:05 [npdoty]
"1": the resource is designed for usage as a first party
17:28:06 [npdoty]
"3": the resource is designed for usage as a third party
17:28:10 [Chris_IAB]
there are two things we probably shouldn't conflate: the definition itself, AND where that definition exists (TPE vs Compliance) -- we should be careful to separate the issues accordingly
17:28:23 [Chris_IAB]
17:28:23 [robsherman]
17:28:34 [moneill2]
Chapell, can you type that in I missed it
17:28:36 [dsinger]

17:29:50 [moneill2]
npdoty: can set up a call tomorrow to see how we can combine
17:30:06 [Chapell]
I (and I believe others - some of whom are not on the call today) would object to the use of 1st party / 3rd party definitions anywhere. in Compliance or TPE. Not looking to necessarily debate this point here and now, but Matthias had indicated that 'nobody' was objecting to that langauge, it was a question of 'where it goes'
17:30:26 [Chapell]
So, for the record... I am objecting
17:30:35 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: we must not conflate where def is and what signal describes
17:30:35 [npdoty]
we already have a definition. this text doesn't create new definitions.
17:30:41 [justin]
chapell, The group has already settled on definitions on party, first party, and third party. Those issues are closed.
17:30:46 [fielding]
Chris_IAB, this discussion is about use of a term in TPE. If the term exists in TPE, it will be define in TPE.
17:30:58 [fielding]
17:31:01 [moneill2]
Matthias: only about 1 & 3 in TPE
17:31:14 [Chapell]
Justin, npdoty, that's fine... but lets not confuse the decision of the chairs with group consensus on an issue
17:31:34 [schunter]
17:31:37 [schunter]
ack ro
17:31:42 [moneill2]
Matthias: or leave it to TPCs
17:32:32 [Chris_IAB]
QUESTION: does anyone see a world where the TPE would be deployed APART from a compliance document? If not, then we can comfortably move definitions into compliance docs. Arguments to that logic?
17:32:52 [fielding]
I did look at it. It does not address my concerns.
17:33:01 [moneill2]
robsherman: befor we should go forward Roy and me should talk
17:33:15 [justin]
Chris_IAB, The TPE defines the parameters of the DNT signal. To the extent elements of that signal need to be defined, TPE must define them.
17:33:16 [fielding]
My concern is that we DO NOT need "first party" and "third party" in TPE.
17:33:36 [moneill2]
Matthias: while we have 1st & 3rd parties, if nobody uses them the defs go away
17:33:40 [dsinger]
we don't use the term 'tracking' either
17:33:42 [Chris_IAB]
justin, you need only define what a signal is, not what it means
17:33:54 [fielding]
dsinger, what spec are you reading?
17:33:55 [schunter]
17:33:56 [moneill2]
matthias: maybe in complaince regime
17:34:00 [schunter]
ack dsi
17:34:22 [justin]
Chris_IAB, No, that is not correct. The group has defined what the signal is intended to convey. That issue is closed.
17:34:24 [moneill2]
dsinger: if TPCs dont need 1 & 3 signal, they dont need to require them
17:34:38 [Chris_IAB]
justin, anyway, the TPE is not deployed in a silo by itself
17:34:56 [ninja]
Chris_IAB, this may be true for the server side. But the user is not able to choose a compliance regime. So a basic setting of scope and meaning of his DNT;1 or 0 signal is useful.
17:34:56 [moneill2]
dsinger: anxious that 1 & 3 signal was not machine testable
17:35:02 [Chris_IAB]
justin, I continue to disagree with this approach… it's too much of a slippery slope
17:35:18 [fielding]
honestly, dsinger, that is absurd
17:35:18 [moneill2]
dsinger: we dont need tracking in the TPE either
17:35:28 [Chris_IAB]
17:35:32 [schunter]
IMHO we do since we have a signal "0" Not tracking
17:35:39 [fielding]
17:35:52 [npdoty]
fielding, is there a constructive way that you can express that concern to dsinger?
17:35:56 [fielding]
tracking="N" is a functional part of the spec
17:35:57 [moneill2]
dsinger: signal important in own right for user
17:35:57 [Chris_IAB]
17:36:00 [Chapell]
Chris_IAB for some reason, the chairs seem intent on porting many definitions as possible - over the objections of many within the group
17:36:09 [fielding]
DNT:1 is a signal within the spec
17:36:10 [Chris_IAB]

17:36:36 [moneill2]
matthias: By end of week we decide if to forward to CfO
17:36:58 [justin]
Chris_IAB, No one is telling you what to do in response to the DNT signal. That's what a compliance regime determines.
17:37:19 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: TPE must have an assiciated TPC for implementation, docs then become one
17:37:49 [npdoty]
Chris_IAB, the group, based on issue-239, made a decision to not make normative references to the Compliance document and its definitions
17:38:10 [moneill2]
matthias: TPE defines user prefs, sites use TPC to decide what they do
17:38:12 [npdoty]
... which is why we've been spending time on removing references, and making sure the terms are defined
17:39:04 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: we made decision to bifurcate
17:39:09 [schunter]
Zakim, who is making noise?
17:39:22 [Zakim]
schunter, listening for 12 seconds I heard sound from the following: schunter (7%), Chris_IAB (7%), JackHobaugh (15%), [CDT] (74%)
17:39:37 [JackHobaugh]
i am muted
17:39:46 [schunter]
I would not call CDTs input noise, though ;-)
17:39:56 [schunter]
Zakim, mute JackHobaugh
17:39:56 [Zakim]
JackHobaugh should now be muted
17:39:56 [moneill2]
justin: its an optional field, you dont have to use it (in TPC), but group has made decision
17:40:10 [schunter]
Jack: IMHO you caused some echo.
17:40:25 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: there is a conflict
17:40:28 [JackHobaugh]
I am muted locally.
17:40:34 [JackHobaugh]
I have been for the duration of this call.
17:40:47 [moneill2]
justin: pput your objection down in CfO
17:41:13 [Chapell]
Justin: I don't understand how one might offer a different interpretation of first and third party given the significant history there.
17:41:21 [justin]
zakim, unmute jackHobaugh
17:41:21 [Zakim]
JackHobaugh should no longer be muted
17:41:34 [Zakim]

jackhobaugh, is there something you want to add?
17:41:55 [moneill2]
matthias: i would like to woork twds CfO, Roys proposal claer, prop1 needs more work
17:42:03 [dsinger]
I think we should edit proposal 1 in line with Roy's suggestion, as the authors of it seem OK with that
17:42:10 [JackHobaugh]
I get that, feel free to mute me at your end.
17:42:17 [npdoty]
dsinger, indeed, I've made that edit

fielding: trying for def give clarification of what user means, from their perpective, slightl dif from prop 5
17:45:10 [moneill2]
fielding: prop5 relies on def of parties
17:45:30 [npdoty]
prop 1 adds "common data controller" and "group identity"
17:45:45 [kulick]
17:45:52 [moneill2]
fielding: my def considers separate branding diff contexts
17:45:59 [schunter]

Roy, could you explain why you replaced "share" with "with"?
17:46:06 [schunter]
ack ku
17:46:34 [npdoty]
fielding, would you say that context in your Proposal 1 is a strict subset of party in Proposal 5?
17:46:54 [moneill2]
kulick: is second sentence needed?
17:47:19 [npdoty]
second sentence: " A context represents a typical user's expectations regarding the boundaries of a commonly branded Web site (i.e., what makes it distinct from sites with a different group identity) independent of the technology, domain names, or parties operating that site via one or more origin servers. "
17:47:37 [moneill2]
fielding: cant understand it without second sentence, prefer to keep it
17:47:59 [moneill2]
matthias: compremise - mark sentence sentence as a note
17:48:20 [fielding]
okay on marking it as a note
17:48:37 [fielding]
that any *implementer* would understand
17:49:00 [JackHobaugh]
I would like to request that M2 be extended a week because we have only had since 3 am today to consider Roy's revised proposal.
17:49:10 [ninja]
dsinger, would you be able to take over scribing?
17:49:12 [moneill2]
kullick: typical users knowledge not improved by 2nd sentence, complex environment that users might not understand
17:49:18 [schunter]
17:49:55 [moneill2]
matthias: 2nd sentence as non-normative note
17:50:17 [npdoty]
kulick, does that help your concern?
17:50:25 [moneill2]
fielding: dont like non-normative para, happy for note at beginning of sentence
17:50:56 [kulick]
npdoty, did roy just say add a note to the beginning of the sentence?
17:51:13 [kulick]
i would want to understand what the note was
17:51:17 [fielding]
I just updated the wiki
17:51:33 [kulick]
i do think it would improve it, just not certain i could say i am good with it right now
17:52:00 [npdoty]
kulick, the proposal from schunter / fielding was to mark the second sentence as a note
17:52:03 [dsinger]
do we need to re-open the "definition of tracking" and change it to say "it's whatever the compliance regime(s) stop you doing when you say you don't track"?
17:52:08 [moneill2]
Chris_IAB: cant see TPE being implemented without TPC, slipeery sloper, unzipped them then now zipping back up, certain TPC hampered
17:52:10 [fielding]
… to add "Note that a context" where "A context" was at the beginning of sentence 2
17:52:26 [ninja]
scribenick: dsinger
17:52:33 [dsinger]
17:52:39 [kulick]
roy, i see the update. i dont think it makes a difference from what was there before, but I appreciate your willingness to find a compromise
17:52:40 [dsinger]
scribenick: dsinger
17:52:55 [justin]
Again, Chris_IAB, the decision has made to define tracking in the TPE. That is closed. The only question is whether to add more flavor around the idea of context to clarify what tracking means. However, the TPE does not prescribe what exactly you need to do in response to that request not to be tracked.
17:53:22 [justin]
Just trying again to clarify the distinction between the two documents.
17:53:34 [npdoty]
+1 to dsinger, does the signal just mean something completely different based on who you're talking to? how should a UA explain that?
17:53:39 [dsinger]
mschunbter: proposal 5?
17:54:12 [justin]
npdoty, dsinger, no the signal is defined within TPE. Closed issue.
17:54:15 [dsinger]
chrispedigo: proposal 5: not so different from Roy's. From implementers perspective may be easier to understand. Also for a corporate entity. Tried to keep simple
17:54:42 [dsinger]
...tried to link back to defn of party, so that where transparency is needed, it's more discoverable,
17:54:44 [fielding]
would it be better as "Note that this definition of context is intended to represent …"?
17:54:51 [Chris_IAB]
justin, you'll remember that I didn't really agree with your closing stance on whether to include a definition of Tracking in the TPE, for every reason we are now encountering (slippery slope). I don't think I was alone.
17:54:55 [dsinger]
also more support for consumers
17:55:06 [dsinger]
...happy to take questions
17:55:07 [schunter]
17:55:49 [dsinger]
moneill2: proposal 4: associates a context with a data controller, an entity that the user is expecting is collecting or could collect
17:55:58 [dsinger]
...single data controller defines a context
17:55:58 [npdoty]
17:56:29 [dsinger]
...if multiple domains are used, then they are in teh same-party array of the WKR, so it's clear that they are udner the same controller
17:57:02 [dsinger]
matthias: if we compare with Roy, replaces group identity with branding, reqs the same privacy, and requires discoverability thru the same-party array
17:57:07 [Chris_IAB]
Chris_IAB has left #dnt
17:57:15 [dsinger] it's more restrictive in that it introdices requirements
17:57:16 [schunter]

Chris_IAB has joined #dnt
17:57:57 [dsinger]
npdoty: Matthias already touched on: how important is common branding? Essential? Easily discernable? Discoverable?
17:58:04 [dsinger]
moneill2: OK by me, check with Rob?
17:58:13 [ninja]
zakim, mute me
17:58:13 [Zakim]
Ninja should now be muted
17:58:17 [dsinger]
npdoty: in this case, are they mergable
17:58:19 [dsinger]
17:58:31 [dsinger]
moneill2: yes, probably so. let me check with my co-authors
17:58:54 [fielding]
My proposal now reads: A context is a set of resources with a common data controller and a group identity that is easily discoverable by a user. Note that this definition of context is intended to represent a typical user's expectations regarding the boundaries of a commonly branded Web site (i.e., what makes it distinct from sites with a different group identity) independent of the technology, domain names, or parties operating that site via one or more origin
17:58:55 [fielding]
17:59:20 [dsinger]
mschunter: Roy, one is the language on group identity (maybe not a big deal), and a question for Mike is whether the same-party needs to be required; then there is the common privacy policy. Roy, what about these?
17:59:59 [Zakim]
18:00:09 [npdoty]
right, some companies might write smaller privacy policies for parts of their site
18:00:18 [dsinger]
fielding: the problem is that privacy policies tend to be fungible, and apply to a set of resources, so requiring that they all update in lockstep or be identical is not always workable, even if they are aligned (on this question)
18:00:45 [dsinger]
mschunter: example is IBM, that had a number of policies that had common elements but were not identical
18:00:55 [moneill2]
18:01:15 [dsinger]
mschunter: Mike/Rob/Roy to explore a common proposal
18:01:32 [dsinger]
mschunter: proposal 5? can we drop in favor of proposal 1?
18:01:53 [robsherman]
18:02:02 [Zakim]
18:02:59 [dsinger]
chrispedigo: I think this is a little cleaner for 1. Not opposed to Roy's as such. One is a difference about user expectations. There are different ways for a user to come to an expectation. One is common branding. Another is easily discoverable. There is a balance in the defn of party and value in using it. Please keep it as part of the discussion
18:03:16 [dsinger]
mschunter: proposal 6
18:03:35 [kulick]
+1 to leaving proposal 5
18:03:45 [dsinger]
chris: I think these definitions belong in the compliance and not the TPE
18:03:53 [dsinger]
q+ to ask why is tracking in TPE, then?
18:04:22 [dsinger]

18:06:21 [Zakim]
agendum 5. "AoB" taken up [from ninja]
18:07:42 [dsinger]
justin: last week Shane brought up issue 143. maybe we should put into TPE a way to 'sign' the DNT signal. "set by Chrome", "set by Cisco", etc.
18:08:12 [dsinger]
justin: issue was closed in Sunnyvale last year, the chairs of that epoch decided that there was no support for continuing discussion, and no proposals
18:08:37 [npdoty]
18:08:37 [trackbot]
issue-194 -- How should we ensure consent of users for DNT inputs? -- open
18:08:37 [trackbot]
18:08:43 [dsinger]
...we decided to merge it with the general idea in compliance, of how can you ensure that signals are validly sent
18:08:55 [dsinger]
(issue 194)
18:09:21 [dsinger]
...absent new info, we are not interested in re-opening now, and given we want to get to last call, maybe testing will reveal a need to re-open
18:09:41 [dsinger]
...but we need to hear idea of other issues we need to consider before last call
18:09:53 [Chris_IAB]
18:10:03 [dsinger]
...we will be looking at 240 and 241 soon, and then we'll be done
18:10:29 [dsinger] some point the editors will need to implement the decisions that were made, and we'll be checking whether the result has errors or other questions we need to consider

18:18:49 [dsinger]
justin: Mike has a couple of issues identified
18:19:12 [Zakim]
18:20:14 [dsinger]
moneill2: First: the idea, the cross-domain, single-origin problem. A site with multi domains (Yahoo and Yimg for example). Also the situation Roy alluded to, such as P&G with a single data controller but multiple brands. It's silly to have to ask the user multiple times (perhaps) if the user already thought they gave consent.
18:20:55 [dsinger]
moneill2: the thought that it had to reflect the user's thought 'at the time' may be too restrictive. May want to re-arrange words to allow for that situation.
18:21:18 [dsinger]
...also read that Shane warned not to use european legal words (data controller)
18:21:38 [Zakim]
18:21:53 [justin]
18:21:54 [dsinger]
justin: making sure we don't say something we don't mean to say.
18:22:03 [npdoty]
thanks for bringing this up, mike, even if I don't 100% understand it yet
18:22:34 [dsinger]
...hopefully folks will look at the language and see what can be improved. Maybe editors can help? We may well find contentious
18:22:40 [dsinger]
...the second is a new proposal, IMHO
18:23:25 [Zakim]
18:23:27 [dsinger]
moneill2: second: the whole issue of trust between sites and users. we have the WKR. Other data controllers can use it.
18:23:58 [npdoty]
email from moneill2:
18:24:50 [dsinger]
justin: basically to allow sites that have Tracking behavior, to allow users to request deletion of past records to the extent possible
18:25:14 [dsinger]
justin: we previously agreed that DNT did not apply to old records that are retained, only going forward
18:25:18 [ninja]
zakim, mute me

18:25:41 [npdoty]

18:25:45 [kulick]
+1 on moving to version 2... this is a big issue and would require much discussion
18:25:56 [npdoty]
... particularly if servers are interested in a standard mechanism
18:25:58 [Zakim]
18:25:59 [dsinger]
justin: Shane responded that maybe this is a version 2 question. It does sound like a 'heavy lift' and hesitate to intro something so groundbreaking now
