13:11:23 [jtandy]
that's TPAC right?
13:11:26 [kerry]
topi: approve minutes
13:11:41 [jtandy]
13:11:54 [jtandy]
13:11:55 [ByronCinNZ]
13:12:08 [jtandy]
yes the meeting was short - I remember Linda saying so
13:12:18 [kerry]
resolved: approve minutes
13:12:20 [ChrisLittle]
+0 not present
13:12:21 [jtandy]
+0 (not there myself)
13:12:45 [phila]
phila: Meeting was only 15 minutes on 14/9
13:12:54 [phila]
phila: Shall we approve TPAC minutes
13:13:07 [joshlieberman]
+0 not present for either
13:13:19 [phila]
phila: Minutes of 14 Sept so trivial, not an issue
13:13:29 [phila]
-> TPAC Day 1
13:13:36 [phila]
-> Day 2
13:13:51 [phila]
phila: Some of my scribing around SSN was not good.
13:14:34 [AndreaPerego]
Same issue with mine about the joint meeting with WoT IG
13:14:43 [phila]
kerry: Anyone have an opinion?
13:15:00 [phila]
kerry: Day 1 was approved on day 2
13:15:02 [kerry]
topic: approve day 2 tpac minutes
13:15:06 [phila]
... Not appropriate to reapprove them here
13:15:10 [joshlieberman]
13:15:18 [kerry]
ack joshlieberman
13:15:20 [phila]
kerry: Any comments on day 2
13:15:40 [phila]
joshlieberman: Procedural issue - I'm a little disappointed that the meetings were at the same time (TPAC and OGC)
13:15:50 [phila]
... SO it was not possible for a number of us to attend the TPAC F2F.
13:16:17 [phila]
... It would be helpful therefore to revisit some of the decisions taken at TPAC. Not to overturn, but to reaffirm them.
13:16:24 [phila]
... Don't know what the procedure might be.
13:16:30 [phila]
13:17:04 [phila]
kerry: I'm sympathetic, but there are always meetings one can't attend where decisions are taken. I'm often in that position myself.
13:17:40 [phila]
... It's possible to re-look at a decision, but I don't think we can nobble our decision making process. In last week's SSN meeting, we went through those SSN decisions in Lisbon
13:17:53 [phila]
... Yes, we can't all attend al the meetings all the time
13:17:55 [phila]
13:18:05 [kerry]
ack phila
13:19:29 [phila]
phila: Can I suggest you look at the resolutions from TPAC and raise issues if you think it necessary.
13:21:12 [phila]
phila: Rambles on about raising issues and wanting everyone to be happy.
13:21:39 [phila]
kerry: We always ask for agenda items. Please let me know if you want an issue on an agenda.
13:21:53 [phila]
joshlieberman: So it sounds like the best thing is to raise an issue?
13:22:03 [phila]
... That can then serve as an agenda item.
13:22:19 [phila]
kerry: Yes, but please also ask for it to be put on an agenda at a time that suits you.
13:22:21 [kerry]
13:23:11 [ChrisLittle]
13:23:37 [kerry]
resolve: approve minutes
13:23:42 [phila]
joshlieberman: OGC has the concept of No Objections To Unanimous Consent (NOTUC)
13:24:01 [kerry]
patent call:
13:24:15 [phila]
RESOLVED: There being NOTUC, minutes of TPAC Day 2 are approved.
13:24:18 [kerry]
topic: Changing time zones: proposed next plenary and following fortnights at 19th October 2016 20:00 GMT i.e (this is returning to the schedule for the opposite season we used at the beginning of the year. Please be prepared to suggest alternatives if you wish but staying as now is not an option, as this week's meeting starts at midnight in eastern Australia.)
13:24:49 [phila]
kerry: Time zones are changing for the opposite seasons. It's 00:24 tomorrow here in Canberra.
13:25:21 [ChrisLittle]
+1 to new time
13:25:30 [phila]
... So my suggestion is for plenary meetings to start at 20:00 UTC as of 2 weeks' time.
13:25:37 [ByronCinNZ]
Big +1 from me
13:25:38 [phila]
+1 from me, it's what we're use to. Let's move on
13:25:43 [jtandy]
13:25:45 [MattPerry]
+1 from me
13:25:45 [AndreaPerego]
13:25:55 [joshlieberman]
13:26:00 [jtandy]
13:26:05 [phila]
phila: Notes that it's 01:26 tomorrow for ByronCinNZ
13:26:17 [phila]
ack j
13:26:18 [kerry]
ack jtandy
13:26:47 [phila]
jtandy: That's the time for plenary call. The sub groups will continue at the time that makes sense to them.
13:26:50 [phila]
kerry: Confirmed
13:26:57 [kerry]
13:27:01 [phila]
... The change *only* applies to the plenary calls
13:27:06 [jtandy]
thank you
13:27:16 [kerry]
resolved: Changing time zones: proposed next plenary and following fortnights at 19th October 2016 20:00 GMT i.e
13:27:17 [phila]
RESOLVED: Plenary meetings (only) will move to 20:00 UTC as of 19 October
13:27:20 [phila]
13:27:27 [kerry]
ack phila
13:28:25 [joshlieberman]
RESOLVED: Daylight savings is a terrible idea.

topic: Next PWD of UCR coming very soon
13:28:52 [phila]
RRSAgent, draft minutes
13:28:52 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate phila
13:29:07 [phila]
kerry: We did some final issue closing at TPAC
13:29:19 [phila]
... Frans has since actioned those changes and made some cosmetic changes
13:29:30 [phila]
... He posted on the list along the lines of "we're ready to go"
13:29:55 [phila]
... So we're looking for approval in 2 weeks' time to go ahead and publish. We expect this to be the final version.
13:30:33 [phila]
... This is an OCG Discussion Paper/W3C Note
13:30:47 [kerry]
topic: Next PWD of BP coming very soon
13:30:48 [phila]
phila: No process issues here. WG has 2 weeks to review.
13:31:17 [phila]
kerry: State of gthe BP doc is that it has changed a lot since the previous public WD. Not yet complete, but has progressed a lot.
13:31:32 [phila]
... We propose similarly that it will be ready for a public WD that we can vote on during 19/10 meeting
13:31:45 [phila]
kerry: What's the stability, Jeremy?
13:32:08 [ClausStadler]
present+ ClausStadler
13:32:16 [phila]
jtandy: All the actions that we agreed on the end of the 1st day *except* phila's bits
13:32:34 [phila]
... Bill is working on the glossary and hopes to have it done my Monday, or it will have to wait until next iteration.
13:32:59 [phila]
... I'm incorporating Payam's changes on CRSs now
13:33:27 [phila]
phila: I'm working on it now. Will complete immediately after this meeting.
13:33:37 [phila]
... Pending Bill's glossary updates.
13:33:51 [phila]
kerry: So if you, Jeremy, can write to the list when it's ready?
13:34:01 [phila]
jtandy: I will email the list when we're good to go.
13:35:15 [phila]
kerry: So I invite everyone to look at it as soon as Jeremy sends that mail.Expcet to vote in 2 week's time.

I would add an item in the agenda of the next call.
13:36:39 [phila]
kerry: So... with relevant people absent... Oh... Andrea *is* here...
13:36:50 [phila]
AndreaPerego: The problem is that I wasn't there. It was Ed and Clemens
13:37:07 [phila]
kerry: OK, we'll bring it back to another agenda.
13:37:17 [phila]
Topic: AOB
13:37:29 [phila]
kerry: Anyone have anything (I do)
13:37:40 [jtandy]
nothing from me
13:37:53 [phila]
kerry: So can I talk about HTTPS?
13:37:53 [kerry]
topic: https namespaces
13:38:15 [phila]
kerry: The issue is for the time ontology and SSN et al...
13:38:41 [phila]
... the question is about the transition to TLS and what that means for an ontology.
13:39:02 [phila]
... My view was that is your namepsace is new, you may as well take the opportunity to move to https
13:39:15 [phila]
... It's only been there for the lifetime of this group.
13:39:31 [phila]
... I understood the advice to be to use HTTPS if you're starting anew.
13:39:42 [phila]
... It affects the group more broadly
13:39:44 [kerry]
13:41:04 [joshlieberman]
Can a webserver not redirect http to https?
13:42:02 [joshlieberman]
The user agent needs the root cert in order to accept an https connection...
13:42:38 [kerry]
ack joshlieberman
13:42:39 [phila]
phila: Maxime raised this at
13:43:07 [phila]
joshlieberman: There's no difference in terms of a URI in terms of an id, it's when you treat it as a URL that issues arise.
13:43:42 [phila]
... Yes, https is good but there are issues around what the process is, what the authentication mechanism is etc.
13:44:24 [kerry]
13:44:29 [phila]
joshlieberman: So I argue for http URIs, provided that the server will upgrade to https if supported.
13:44:36 [phila]
phila: That's what we say too, yes.
13:44:54 [phila]
... Stick with http and let the smarts handle it - until we have https everywhere.
13:46:17 [phila]
kerry: I'm willing to go with the flow, but it still seems more rational to me to go for https as we have the opportunity to do so.
13:46:39 [kerry]
13:46:41 [phila]
... The downside is, if you want a secure resolution... willing to take advice. Looks like the advice is to use http for now
13:47:07 [ChrisLittle]
+1 for HTTP
13:47:10 [phila]
PROPOSED: That our vocabularies use HTTP URIs as namespaces
