NM summarizes msg of Tue, 8 Nov 2005 12:27:32 -0500
18:13:02 [Ed]
* Followup to Edinburgh discussions of versioning: we seemed to be off to a useful if somewhat slow start in settling terminology, etc., and I think there was some sense that versioning-related work could be a key theme for the TAG's work in the coming year or two.
18:13:20 [Ed]
(from Noah's email)
18:13:29 [Ed]
* Self-describing documents: I don't think we have an issue around this, but Tim at least informally seemed to feel it would be worth attention. I agree, and I might be convinced to do some work on a finding (though we'll have to set priorities relative to TAG commitments already made).
18:14:42 [DanC]
q+ to note progress on versioning
18:15:24 [DanC]
ack danc
18:15:24 [Zakim]
DanC, you wanted to note progress on versioning
18:16:10 [DanC]
agenda + versioning
18:16:11 [Ed]
* schemeProtocols-49: I owe the TAG a reworked position to be available within the next few weeks, allowing time for TAG members to read and consider before the F2F. I think a couple of hours on this would be worthwhile. The goal would be either to finally agree that there's something worth pursuing, or to formally put it aside for the forseeable future.
18:16:29 [DanC]
agenda 6 = versioning, esp.
18:17:21 [DanC]
DanC: Self-describing documents .. umm... yeah... worth some time... not sure how.
18:19:37 [DanC]
DanC: on schemeProtocols-49 ... I should get in touch with some of the proponents of http: synonyms...
18:19:44 [DanC]
NM: mms: is relevant there too
18:19:45 [Ed]
* Web Services and the Web: I think we're using endPointRefs-47 as an excuse for the TAG to come up to speed on Web Services and perhaps to discover new issues worth pursuing. Henry's worked example seems useful.
18:21:27 [DanC]
NM: perhaps "principle of least power" merits some time at the ftf too.
18:22:35 [DanC]
Ed: perhaps focus more on this bit of our charter: "when setting future directions, help establish criteria for starting new work at W3C, and help W3C coordinate its work with that of other organizations."
18:23:14 [DanC]
DanC: how would that be different from what we're doing now?
18:23:45 [DanC]
Ed: e.g. mobile web... perhaps put together something on content/presentation before mobile web inititative publishes something
18:24:49 [Zakim]
18:24:52 [Zakim]
18:25:12 [DanC]
DanC: I can see both sides of that, but I'm concerned about whether we're doing what we say we're going to do... long list of actions with slow progress... which things to preempt?
18:25:49 [Norm]
zakim, Norm.a is Norm
18:25:49 [Zakim]
+Norm; got it
18:25:54 [DanC]
NM: it occurs to me that there will [may] be some turn-over... we could think about what we're going to hand to the incoming folks
18:26:19 [DanC]
NM: "issue list and assignments"?
18:26:35 [DanC]
Ed: anything else? well, that's it for now; we can add more later
18:26:52 [DanC]
Ed: priorities?
18:27:12 [DanC]
DanC: prioritize stuff based on work that gets done before the meeting
18:28:29 [DanC]
Ed: hmm...
18:28:56 [DanC]
NM: agenda seems fluid enough to let incoming writing influence it

18:31:00 [Norm]
18:31:17 [DanC]
-> Associating Resources with Namespaces 7 November 2005
18:32:44 [DanC]
NDW: pls excuse encoding noise... working on .htaccess
18:33:10 [DanC]
DNW: am I on the right track?
18:33:18 [DanC]
18:33:32 [DanC]
DanC: it's not so much "instead of" RDDL... we're also endorsing RDDL as is, right?
18:33:37 [DanC]
NDW: right.
18:33:45 [noah]
Noah thinks that Norm's "We hope to: 1)... 2)... 3)..." is balanced on the status of RDDL.
18:34:50 [DanC]
DanC: I'm not in a good position to review... I'll just see what I want to see
18:34:56 [DanC]
Ed: I'm OK to review it.
18:35:15 [DanC]
ACTION NDW: fill in section 5 of
18:35:39 [DanC]
ACTION Ed: review after NDW updates w.r.t section 5, perhaps by 22 Nov
18:36:07 [Norm]
Funny characters fixed
18:37:11 [DanC]
DanC: status... hmm... it's in the shape of a finding... we've been asked for a REC... a finding is OK by me, at least for now
18:37:20 [DanC]
NDW: let's shop it around as a finding for now
18:37:37 [DanC]
Zakim, close this item

4. authentication [from DanC]
18:37:53 [DanC]
-> Web Auth: state of the art
18:39:10 [noah]
If you mean Microsoft Infocard, Noah is surprised that it is purely WS-Trust based. I thought it was a general repository and associated "non scary to ordinary mortals" UI for all credentials.
18:40:38 [DanC]
[missed lots by danc]
18:40:46 [DanC]
NDW: that was SAML
18:42:03 [DanC]
NM: I got the impression InfoCard was more federated than just ws-trust
18:42:45 [DanC]
... sorta like web browsers mostly use http, though they can use other uri schemes
18:42:54 [DanC]
DC: I got the impression ws-trust played the pivotal role
18:43:41 [DanC]
DC: I hear a workshop might be in progress
18:43:51 [noah]
FWIW: the Microsoft Web Page about Infocard appears to be at:
18:43:57 [DanC]
Ed: perhaps we should recommend that W3C do a workshop?
18:44:49 [DanC]
... on web authentication
18:45:18 [Roy]
18:45:38 [noah]
Following up on scope of Infocard, see specifically:
18:45:47 [DanC]
DanC: I'm conflicted... I'm not sure I'll be able to go. If I could go, I'd like it to happen.
18:46:16 [DanC]
ACTION DanC: to write a report on the state of the art authentication in the web [continues]

18:57:30 [Ed]
ack noah
18:57:30 [Zakim]
noah, you wanted to say we're not in 100% total agreement on the use of the term "language"
18:58:37 [DanC]
I think stringset is what we got in
18:59:37 [Ed]
noah: I think we should set down instructions on how we should read that diagram we had on the white board
19:00:33 [Norm]
19:00:45 [DanC]
DC: tx for feedback... this week and next are kinda shot, but the following week might work
19:01:02 [DanC]
meanwhile... ACTION DaveO to update finding with ext/vers
19:03:04 [DanC]
DC: I guess my target is to tell this "HTML 2 sublanguage of HTML4" story
19:06:01 [DanC]
DO: ok, let's hope that folds into the finding
