LC003: XSLT match pattern

Vojtech: We discussed this.

Norm: Ok, I'll dig back further to see what I can find.

<MoZ> Norm, w.r.t pattern see http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/2010/01/07-minutes

<Vojtech> XSLT match pattern discussion: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-processing-model-wg/2010Jan/0007.html

010 Scoping of options and variables

Norm: I didn't understand, I guess.

Henry: Take option and variable names together and make them the same as step names.
... There's no lexical shadowing, only dynamic shadowing.

Norm: Ok.

013: multiple inputs in test expression

Norm discusses his thoughts about inputs and collection()

Vojtech: I think we need to make it well defined behavior, or leave it as it is

Alex: Is collection() in XPath 2.

Norm: yes.

Vojtech: What I would see as the right solution would be to allow multiple documents appearing in the XPath context and we say we take the first one as the context item. But you can use collection() to get to the others.

Norm: I think this has gone as far as it needs to.

Alex: The status quo is implementation defined.

Norm: Proposal: leave the status quo, do nothing.


016: pipelines with infinite recursion

Vojtech: I was just wondering, but Norm replied.

Norm: I think we say enough.
... Proposal: leave the status quo.


Norm: Test suite progress
... Has the schema test resolution quesiton been resolved?

Vojtech: It's valid-xsd-004 and 011. They're the same and one is expected to succeed and one is expected to fail.
... One relies on the default value for use-location-hints and the other sets it to false, which is the default.

Norm: Do we have another test that explicitly sets it to true?
... Yes, 008.
... I think we should change 004 so that it's expected to fail, just like 11.

Vojtech: Do we want to change the default on validate-with-xmlschema?

Norm: Henry, what does the world expect?

Henry: For XSV, they're true and true, respectively. For Saxon, I think it's true and false, respectively.
... No, the default is false. That's probably why we did it the way we did.

Norm: Proposal: leave the status quo and change the test.


Change the type of prefix value to NCName

Norm: Mohamed observes that we have options that are expected to contain prefixes that are of type string. He suggests we change their types to NCName.
... I have no objection.

Henry: I don't think that's a breaking change.

Proposal: Accept this change?


More string changes

Mohamed: There are at least two issues in p:label-elements

Some discussion of the questions. Type of label changed to XPathExpression.

Any other business?

None heard.
