<jf_2013> updated xml processing home page with links to latest minutes
A-235-02 is completed.
Norm: We're chipping away on actions and waiting to hear back from Michael.
Henry: I think that' s right.
Jim: I added a table to the invariants section.
Norm: I was hoping to hear from Liam, but I haven't.

Henry: When would we meet?

Norm: Thank you Henry
... Any other any other business?
Mohamed: Michael Kay started discussion about chained pipelines in XSLT 3.0. I don't know how this relates to XProc.
Norm: Yes, I plan to
