14:13:08 [fjh]
fjh: rich made an update to address issues raised by Adam Barth, need to review changes
14:13:22 [fjh]
14:13:22 [trackbot]
ISSUE-135 -- Add security and privacy considerations section -- open
14:13:22 [trackbot]

14:13:37 [fjh]
14:13:37 [trackbot]
ISSUE-136 -- Issues related to garbage collection -- open
14:13:37 [trackbot]
14:14:15 [fjh]
fjh: I was looking at implementation for our specs, added these issues related to network service discovery
14:14:48 [fjh]
fjh: looks like chromium implementation is on 'wait and see' versus other browsers and raised issues
14:14:59 [fjh]
fjh: do not believe Mozilla has any plans to implement
14:16:00 [gmandyam]
14:16:19 [fjh]
fjh: we need a second implementation
14:17:55 [fjh]
fjh: think we need to publish new WD, given promises and others changes
14:18:02 [fjh]
fjh: need to close issues before LC
14:18:14 [Cathy]
+1 on publishing updated WD
14:18:19 [fjh]
dom: agree, would be good to publish LC draft, blog on it and draw attention to it
14:18:33 [fjh]
fjh: do not need to address all issues to publish another WD
14:18:39 [fjh]

14:19:07 [fjh]
gmandyman: web and TV interest group - suggest we look at implementations other than browser vendor implementations
14:19:52 [fjh]
fjh: need to see who we might specifically include
14:20:11 [fjh]
gmandyam: need to have joint meeting with web and TV interest group to get them involved
14:20:15 [dom]
+1 on a joint teleconf with Web & TV IG to draw attention to this; again, a new WD would be a good trigger for that
14:20:47 [fjh]
dom: also need rich on the call for that
14:22:27 [fjh]
action: fjh to organize joint call with web and TV group re network service discovery
14:22:27 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-646 - Organize joint call with web and tv group re network service discovery [on Frederick Hirsch - due 2013-08-21].
14:23:04 [dom]
(would work for me)
14:25:20 [dom]
+1 on publishing (and not needing a CfC)
14:25:36 [fjh]
RESOLUTION: Publish updated WD of Network Service Discovery
14:25:51 [fjh]
josh_soref: +1 to publishing updated WD of network service disocver
14:26:19 [dom]
[can't you share the editors draft in that case?]
14:26:22 [fjh]
fjh: also can use update WD to share with Ping, but might wait until more issues are resolved

14:34:30 [fjh]

14:34:48 [fjh]
dom: you will send your test cases as well?
14:34:52 [fjh]
josh_soref: yes
14:35:46 [dom]

ACTION-523 -- Anssi Kostiainen to Work on test cases for battery, vibration, and HTML Media Capture -- due 2012-08-31 -- OPEN
14:38:52 [trackbot]
14:39:33 [fjh]
Topic: Test cases and implementation
14:39:55 [fjh]
fjh: thanks Dom for git review and pull for battery and vibration
14:40:18 [fjh]
fjh: both seem to need a bit more work to complete
14:41:12 [fjh]
dom: I marked these as approved because one person produced the test cases, and another reviewed, hope that is ok with group
14:41:16 [fjh]
fjh: I think so
14:41:26 [fjh]
dom: some additional work needed on vibration test case
14:41:50 [fjh]
fjh: todo.txt for battery says: proper {level | chargingtime | dischargingtime}change tests
14:41:53 [fjh]
not sure what that means
14:41:58 [fjh]
14:42:44 [fjh]
anssik: need to review whether these todo have been already addressed
14:43:13 [fjh]
action: anssik to review todo items associated with battery test cases
14:43:13 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-649 - Review todo items associated with battery test cases [on Anssi Kostiainen - due 2013-08-21].
14:43:38 [fjh]
anssik: tests were originally done with desktop firefox, need to run test on mobile device
14:43:50 [fjh]
dom: which implementations do we know of
14:44:02 [fjh]
… firefox, is blackberry implementing?
14:44:10 [fjh]
josh_soref: I think so but need to check
14:44:20 [gmandyam]
14:44:28 [fjh]
anssik: ran on very early firefox device, back then, passed
14:45:06 [fjh]
anssik: first bullet indicates user interaction is required, so about making it easier for human to perform tests
14:45:14 [fjh]
… current test should work, not optimal for tester
14:45:38 [fjh]
fjh: anssik, can you update todo.txt
14:46:01 [dom]
(rather than todo.txt, they should be filed as issues in github I think)
14:46:02 [fjh]
ack gmandyam
14:46:23 [fjh]
fjh: agree with dom, issues should be tracked separately, not in a file
14:47:00 [fjh]
gmandyam: do we have any strategy for comparing actual levels for mobile device for battery api and native api
14:47:07 [fjh]
… or just not worry about tit?
14:47:10 [fjh]
14:47:45 [fjh]
dom: we concludeer in TPAC, API did not need to provide an exact match
14:47:45 [fjh]
14:48:05 [fjh]
gmandyam: I raised the issue, not sure we agreed, such an issue could cause developers to avoid issue
14:48:17 [fjh]
dom: we are not equipped to do such detailed testing
14:48:44 [fjh]
… in W3C we test at a higher level, could be good to test, but not necessary to test that for interoperability
14:49:27 [fjh]
anssik: conforming implementations can have different quality of implementations, some might match closer, so implementation dependent
14:49:52 [fjh]
josh_soref: privacy consideration, might not want to indicate that other apps are using the battery, so advantage to not having a close match
14:50:01 [fjh]
… not a conformance issue or not a close match
14:50:25 [fjh]
… some might decide this api not needed, since all you can do is make a battery meter, my opinion but we will see
14:50:31 [fjh]
gmandyam: could do it
14:50:41 [fjh]
josh_soref: not point in doing it
14:50:47 [fjh]
14:51:38 [fjh]
gmandyam: not saying we need to do this to exit CR
14:51:53 [fjh]
dom: can continue to submit test cases, suite is not frozen
14:52:07 [fjh]
… please provide test cases if you are able
14:52:18 [fjh]
gmandyam: I will share again on mail list, already did
14:52:41 [fjh]
dom: did you post a test case
14:53:21 [fjh]
gmandyam: showed how I did comparison with native battery readings on windows, requires lots of human
14:53:43 [fjh]
fjh: how do you decide what margin of error is acceptable?
14:54:14 [fjh]
anssik: believe this is quality of implementation issue
14:54:18 [fjh]
josh_soref: +1
14:55:09 [fjh]
fjh: if anyone has any additional test cases please share on list
14:55:28 [fjh]
… we should remove the todo.txt file and raise the issues in git, clarifying that they are enhancements
