Thanks, Jim

Progress on XML processor profiles

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.

Progress on rechartering

Norm: I was hoping to hear from Liam, but I haven't.

Mohamed: The "state machine" XML just went into Last Call. There's something similar to general pipelines in there; do we have to liase with them?

<MoZ> http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/

Norm: We weren't asked to review it, but if it's got pipeline stuff in it then we probably should.

<jf_2013> I've read it before

Mohamed: I thought I saw a paper about XProc and scxml.

Jim: I think there's a paper. I read scxml a while ago; it is a kind of pipeline.
... It's a different approach. We're flow-based. Managing state is a fundamentally different approach.

Henry: It's not the state machine that's the issue, it's the executable content that's the issue.

Mohamed: This document looks to have been rewritten since the previous draft.
... Just to put into the discussion that there is some thought around XML and synchronization and processing.

<scribe> ACTION: Jim to review scxml and provide a summary of the similarities and differences. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2013/12/11-xproc-minutes.html#action01]

Henry: I think the fundamental question is, does XML flow through these control structures?

Progress on zip/unzip?

Norm: Have you made any progress, Jim?

Jim: I've made some progress, but it's not ready to publish yet.

Any other business?

Proposed face-to-face meeting in Edinburgh after XML Prague

<jf_2013> I could come

Norm: How many people would attend?

<MoZ> I won't

Norm: I hear yeas from Henry, Jim, Norm, Alex, and possibly Vojtech

Proposal: we shall meet in Edinburgh face-to-face possibly contingent on the rechartering

Accepted.

Henry: When would we meet?

Norm: I propose Feb 18, 19 and possibly 20.

Henry: I'll book a room!

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 respond.
... Adjourned. Happy holidays and Merry New Year to you all!

<jf_2013> merry xmas/ happy new year
