Status of Documents

<pauld> http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/databinding/edcopy/basic/basic.html

pauld: looked at similar styled specs

<pauld> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xsd-databinding/2006Mar/0011.html

pauld: this has undone work from Yves in the Basic Patterns docs is this OK?

Yves: likes the new format

pauld: new structure should help us write a more formal 'spec like' document


JonC: Very little discussion on list. Have we hit the nail on the head?

<Yves> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xsd-databinding/2006Mar/0005.html

RESOLUTION: Close ISSUE-7 with JonC proposal


<pauld> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xsd-databinding/2006Mar/0012.html

<pauld> schema with predefined types: http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/databinding/edcopy/testsuite/documents/predefinedTypes/predefinedTypes.xsd

pauld: submission to the list identifies 2 proposals

pauld: which proposal do we want to put forward?

JonC: Like 2nd proposal as it doesn't 'lower the bar' too much but still gives advice based on practical knoledge to the schema author.

Ajith: this is very much language dependent

pauld: goes back to how do we quantify patterns i.e. 5 star, 4 star patterns. This seems to be an acid test for if we need such a rating system

Ajith: likes this idea

pauld we may struggle with a fine-grained rating system. Do we want a simpler 'warning' or 'proceed with caution' system?

<pauld> Ajith draws our attention to his validation tool: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xsd-databinding/2006Mar/0017.html

<pauld> ACTION: pdowney to make a combined proposal for ISSUE-3 [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2006/03/28-databinding-minutes.html#action01]

<trackbot> Created ACTION-30 - Make a combined proposal for ISSUE-3 [on Paul Downey - due 2006-04-04].


re Chameleon schemas


pauld: suggest we recommend that we only include patterns that specify a targetNameSpace. No namespace schemas tricky inside SOAP envelopes.

Yves: happy with recommendation as long as design consideration is included to say why tns is desirable

RESOLUTION: close ISSUE 27 with pauls proposal and design consideration as to why tns desirable


<pauld> http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/databinding/issues/26

pauld: another common gotcha

rec is to offer the basic pattern of elementFormDefault="qualified"

and attributeFormDefault="unqualified">

and only allow unqualified elements for empty schema

pauld proposes resolution as proposal

RESOLUTION: close ISSUE-26 with pauld's proposal in the issue


pauld New issues raised 28 - 30

pauld: split ISSUE-1 at Cannes F2F. will likely land in a conformance section.

pauld: please look at these issues and contribute to the list

pauld: will be cancelling mtg on 11th due to travel commitments

<pauld> thanks to JonC for scribing!
