16:06:57 [jeff]
16:06:58 [koalie]
Zakim, take up item 1
16:06:59 [Zakim]
agendum 1. "Propose closing issue 39" taken up [from koalie]
16:07:08 [koalie]
16:07:08 [trackbot]
issue-39 -- Managing the transition to a new TR cycle -- open
16:07:08 [trackbot]
16:07:12 [koalie]
ack jeff
16:07:43 [koalie]
Jeff: During the break, I had an opportunity to do a fairly extensive review of the revisions; sent comments to chaals
16:08:47 [koalie]
... In terms of closing issue-39, I don't recall if I've reviewed it or it it's something else
16:09:09 [koalie]
SteveZ: The text was published on 2-Dec
16:09:10 [SteveZ]
Text for issue 39:
16:09:46 [koalie]
SteveZ: People seemed to be happy with it when we discussed it at the 16-Dec call
16:10:04 [koalie]
-> 16-Dec Call discussion of issue-39
16:11:35 [koalie]
Mike: I'm OK, it's what we agreed on last time we talked.
16:11:40 [jeff]
16:12:07 [koalie]
ack jeff
16:12:39 [koalie]
Jeff: On re-reading the new process, I learned that when we enter candidate rec, there's an AC review
16:13:01 [koalie]
... I was surprised because you don't say that anywhere
16:13:31 [koalie]
... There's a section 7.4 called Candidate Recommendation
16:14:01 [koalie]
... in it it says AC reps can appeal, but nowhere does it say there is a review.
16:14:28 [koalie]
SteveZ: OK.
16:14:44 [koalie]
... I thought it did at one time; I tend to agree, looking at it now.
16:15:13 [koalie]
Jeff: I have a variety of questions
16:15:33 [koalie]
... including one with starting the review as candidate rec
16:15:49 [koalie]
... we should state it, if we want the AC review to start at Candidate Rec
16:15:56 [koalie]
s/review as/review at/
16:16:22 [koalie]
Jeff: "provisional approval" is mentioned, but what are the conditions? when does that happen?
16:17:08 [koalie]
SteveZ: It doesn't even say who makes the request for provisiional approval
16:18:15 [koalie]
Jeff: Further, it should be implicit that a group should close things, namely AC review, in order to publish under the new process.
16:18:39 [koalie]
... So I don't know if that belongs to issue-39
16:18:52 [koalie]
... but I'd be hesitant to close it until I had a chance to have a dialogue with chaals
16:19:06 [koalie]
SteveZ: My first choice would be to fix 7.4 so we clearly start an AC review
16:19:18 [koalie]
... and 7.1 so it's clear what starts a provisitional approval
16:19:25 [koalie]
... and that 39 stays the way it is.
16:19:33 [koalie]
... 39 is just a transition document
16:19:53 [koalie]
... not necessarily part of the process, at some point it ceases to have value.
16:20:06 [koalie]
... I think you should raise the two issues we talked about; they are important.
16:20:27 [koalie]
... I'm not sure what happened there; I'm reasonably sure chaals is on board with that.
16:20:32 [koalie]
Jeff: Yes.
16:20:40 [koalie]
... he confirmed it was the intent.
16:20:54 [koalie]
... but then I did a more complete review and noticed discrepancies.
16:22:24 [koalie]
Jeff: If you send a document at CR and features are dropped, the AC wouldn't know about it.
16:23:30 [koalie]
SteveZ: 7.5.1 documents that
16:24:03 [koalie]
Jeff: I see that, what's missing is the meaning of "provisional approval" (not dropping features)
16:24:18 [koalie]
Mike: Let's not reinvent what a Candidate Recommendation is.
16:24:25 [koalie]
SteveZ: The change is subtle
16:24:28 [fantasai]
16:25:05 [koalie]
SteveZ: Provisional approval that the Director says this really is the LC and you have 28 days to raise and close an issue
16:25:51 [koalie]
... the attempts is to say that the AC review starts at CR and 28 days after LC.
16:26:02 [koalie]
Jeff: Yes, so long as it's clearly documented.
16:26:16 [koalie]
Mike: How is that different from PR status
16:26:30 [koalie]
SteveZ: PR @@ AC Review
16:27:05 [koalie]
Mike: I agree with the substance of the change that AC review is welcome at LCCR (or whatever we call it these days)
16:27:08 [jeff]
16:27:10 [fantasai]
16:27:37 [koalie]
... we have a dilemma: keeping familiar words or creating words that sound different but are so similar
16:27:53 [koalie]
... Is that change worth the confusion it causes?
16:28:22 [koalie]
Fantasai: One thing to notice is that we're giving a heads-up on things not meant to change and you have 4 weeks to object
16:28:45 [jeff]
16:28:46 [koalie]
... we have the exact same thing at WD to CR where we want to give heads-up
16:29:25 [koalie]
... I agree to not have a different W3C status, we should be treating them the same in the Process
16:30:02 [koalie]
Mike: I've liked the philosophy all along of signaling and making things explicit
16:30:50 [koalie]
Jeff: To support some of Mike's points with the provisional approval notion, it's not just a change of name, we're also asking the Director to jump in the middle of the process at CR
16:31:09 [koalie]
... Somewhere in the middle the Director is to give his provisional approval and we're still in CR
16:32:03 [koalie]
SteveZ: I'm ambivalent on that. Chaals had strong feelings. It might be a topic to take up with the full AB.
16:32:48 [koalie]
Jeff: The more immediate problem is to fix the text.
16:32:58 [koalie]
SteveZ: +1
16:33:14 [koalie]
... Do we know when chaals is back from vacation?
16:33:22 [koalie]
fantasai: He sent an e-mail
16:33:39 [koalie]
... but I got the date wrong, nevermind.
16:34:22 [koalie]
SteveZ: Jeff, if you could submit the issues, that would be helpful.
16:34:37 [koalie]
... about what needs to go in 7.4 and 7.5.1
16:34:41 [koalie]
Jeff: Yes.
16:34:50 [koalie]
SteveZ: Let's go back to issue-39...
16:35:16 [koalie]
... If we fix 7.4 and 7.5.1, your issue isn't an issue because the process will tell you what to do
16:35:27 [koalie]
... Do we have agreement to close issue-39 with the text Ralph sent?
16:35:29 [koalie]
16:35:46 [koalie]
RESOLUTION: we have agreement to close issue-39 with the text Ralph sent
16:35:54 [koalie]
close issue-39
16:35:54 [trackbot]
Closed issue-39.

Jeff: in 7.5.2 talks about testing requirement, but 7.4 doesn't have testing requirement

SteveZ: 3rd bullet in 7.4
16:52:38 [koalie]
... "must document how adequate implementation experience will be demonstrated,"
16:53:33 [koalie]
... 7.5.2 has two similar statements that could be combined

16:55:27 [koalie]
Jeff: If testing isn't required, bullet 6 in 7.5.2 shouldn't mention it.
16:55:35 [koalie]
... I'm raising the issue.
16:55:40 [koalie]
SteveZ: It's a valid issue.
16:56:04 [koalie]
