162 No binding for a non-primary input port

Vojtech: Close this one; latest editor's draft solves this one.

163 Output port may be connected to...

Vojtech: For the declared outputs, the spec outputs now says that it may be connected to the xpath context for some other step.

Norm: Ok. I tried to make that clear, but failed. I'll expand on that.
... I'll enumerate all the cases.

Vojtech: Or if you can generalize it somehow...I don't know.
... In the same section, an "output port may be connected to more than one input port."
... Could that be misleading because in a compound step it could be the output of a contained step?

Norm: Uhm...maybe.
... Maybe "an output port may have more than one binding"?

Vojtech: I'm not sure if binding is the right thing. We use both binding and being connected. I think sometimes they mean different things.

Norm: I'll make an attempt to finesse this somehow.

Vojtech: Is this section confusing wrt atomic and compound steps?

Norm: Yes, probably.
... I need to fix this.

164 Bag-merge definition

Vojtech explains his concern.

Henry: A quick survey of the likely specs didn't turn up a good definition, which surprised me a bit.
... If "unordered collection which allows duplicates" is better...
... The problem is that any of these work, the question is which ones will work for which people.
... I can try harder to find a definition in the literature.

Norm: I don't know if "unordered collection" carries the implication that duplicates are allowed or not.
... I'd be just as happy to leave it, I think.

165 Step type exports definition

Some discussion of how to fix the markup

Henry will edit the XML and check it back in.

Publish a heartbeat document?

Proposal: Publish a new CR draft to satisfy our heartbeat requirements.


Default XML Processing Model

Norm: Henry, anything to work on this week?

Henry: No, no progress yet.

Any other business?
