Last week, we looked at the one-pager summaries in all their diversity, and asked Ian to try a first pass on combining them, after some folks had edited theirs a little. That process won't be done by this 3/15 meeting. Therefore, we will be switching modes again, to looking at the issues.

Last week, in the discussions of the one-page summaries, we found we found a great rathole in the question of whether the URIs starting with http: and having no "#" could be used to identify anything, or just members of some class of HTTP Resources. I suggest that we discuss that in the thread on www-tag, as I think it benefits from the precision of clarifications in written form.

I think we have been most successful when we have agreed small axioms or theses which have allowed us to count the agreement we have, and isolate the agreement we have not. Tim Bray's treatment of namesapce documents, and Norm and Stuart's treatment of URIs had this form. I propose we adopt that as our normal way of working:

  1. raise issues on line;
  2. formulate theses off line;
  3. pass sets of agreed theses to Ian for integration to a flowing consistent document;
  4. review (in parallel with www-tag review) of the results.

The categorization serves as an index into this work.

The week after, April 1. we can get back to overview document I hope.
