No regrets heard.
Norm: I propose we close this without action.
Vojtech: We now require a binding
in p:xpath-context, so what does the sentence in 4.4
... it says you need a default readable port.
Norm: Yes, I think an editorial change here makes sense, to explicitly note that the default readable port can be undefined
Proposal: Leave the status quo, with the editorial fix mentioned above.
Norm describes the issue.
Norm: I don't feel strongly about it.
Vojtech: We do a similar thing with parameter input port.
Norm: I concede that this a little inconsistent.
Proposal: Allow required='false' when select is used on p:option
Vojtech: This change will also simplify tools that build pipelines.
Vojtech: In 2008, we decided to add "try-namespace"
Norm: Ok, it was editorial sloppiness then
Proposal: Fix the bug, change to try-namespace.
After the call, Henry reminded us that there really are multiple namespaces in play. This decision is reversed.
Norm: What if the document element is in no namespace.
Vojtech: Just ignore the hint.
Norm: I agree.
Proposal: Ignore the hint.
Norm: And if there isn't a document there, that's ok too.
Norm: We're done!
Henry: Woo hoo!
Norm: I propose that we request transition to PR
Norm: Henry, what are the next steps?
Henry: You put together a transition request, I review it, and you send it.
Paul: If you look at the draft transition request that I sent out for XLink 1.1, that should help.
