We'll skip 25 Oct and meet at the f2f.
Jim: Will we have good enough wifi to do VOIP at the f2f
<scribe> No progress reported *sad panda*
Norm: Finishing up the processor
profiles doc, the new requirements doc, and any step
... We've got a few proposals on the table: fixing parameters and binary (or non-XML) in pipelines
... I think working through those would be good.
... Any other suggestions?
Jim: If we can leave TPAC with a
requirements document that we can work on by telcon, then I
think that would be declaring vicory
... It would be even better if we could publish the zip note.
<scribe> ACTION: Norm to ask cmsmcq to see if he'll be at TPAC and might meet with us [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2012/10/18-xproc-minutes.html#action01]
Jim: Can we also look at the test suite again?
Norm: Oh, indeed. And we should run through the public comments.
Jim: There's someone who's made a bunch of comments about zip and unzip. I need about an hour to review those comments.
Jim: I'll try to update the doc this week.
Henry: Have we given up officially on a compact syntax? I don't have a brief for it, but I think we need to be happy with that as a decision that we've made.
Norm: I'm happy to leave that hanging at least through the f2f.
Alex: In the minutes last week,
there was something about how we're going to evolve the steps.
A registry for example.
... Separating the steps that we have from the language itself.
<alexmilowski> "JF: Do we need some discussion before we make this more specific?
<alexmilowski> AM: Yes, I think email discussion is needed"
<alexmilowski> That's what we said..."
Henry: I'm really quite
interested in exploring of the idea of not having a separate
spec but having a step registry
... Making it a little bit more like the IANA registry for media types. Make it possible to publish a document that documents a step and registers it.
Norm: Sure. The exproc.org site and the wiki were kind of supposed to go that way but haven't been very successful.
Henry: Successful or not, they don't have any normative force. We'd have to decide how much normative force we want them to have.
Murray: I'm wondering about if XProc wants to say anything in relation to micro XML.
Norm: Can you elaborate a little?
Murray: I think we might say that XProc can process micro XML.
Norm: I thought micro XML documents were XML 1.0 documents, but we could explicitly say it.
Alex: I'm going to try to get my 1.0 requirements/use cases action item done, that would be something to review.
