State Chart XML (SCXML): State Machine Notation for Control Abstraction

Review of CSS-Variables and Tracking-DNT



<trackbot> issue-346 -- Section 5.2 use of %31 and %30 for characters 1 and 0 -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/346


<trackbot> issue-347 -- Section 5.2: DNT-extension excludes should spell out control, space, double quote. -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/347


<trackbot> issue-348 -- Non-ASCII not permitted in extensions -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/348


<trackbot> issue-349 -- Section title for 6.2.7 doesn't match earlier description -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/349


<trackbot> issue-350 -- IRI/non-ASCII not permitted in -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/350

Section 6.3.2: The grammar doesn't allow %, so the path to the DNT value cannot include non-ASCII characters that are percent encoded (neither can it be an IRI). A tracking resource might be named for some actual resource that uses non-ASCII characters in its name. Not permitting non-ASCII directly or via URI percent escapes limits what can be represented.

richard: add document links too, please


<trackbot> issue-351 -- Section 6.4.2: restriction to "URI-safe characters" -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/351

Section 6.4.2: Use of "URI-safe characters" (non-ASCII support). Since a site may wish to associate the tracking status with specific resources and since these resources might be named using non-ASCII characters, this appears to limit usage in a non-helpful way?



<matial> +1

addison: any objections to making these WG comments?

jck: no objection

<David> no objection

jck: be a little cautious about adopting non-ASCII everywhere



<trackbot> issue-352 -- normalization of custom property names -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/352

Section 2 says in part: <quote> Unlike other CSS properties, custom property names are case-sensitive. EXAMPLE. While both --foo and --FOO are valid, they are distinct properties - using var(--foo) will refer to the first one, while using var(--FOO) will refer to the second. </quote> Case sensitivity is not the only variation that can apply to text. While citing the case sensitivity is useful, should mention be made of other variations, such as Unicode[CUT]

addison: anne had a good comment on this, but suggest a health warning


<trackbot> issue-353 -- Section 2.1 case sensitivity and normalization -- open

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/353

addison: any objection to making these WG comments?

<matial> +1



addison: we did publish and announce to chairs@

richard: if anyone feels like wrigting some tests
... this is your big chance
... looked at some tests we have already
... focus on recognizing encoding correctly
... and the characters in each encoding
... need to tests the api parts
... some tests not completely accurate
... think about format of tests
... single byte all in a single test
... some pass, some fail
... need to separate
... put into standard format for html test suite
... and generate results too!
... need to talk to people about this
... robin berjon would be happy to help us start
... he'll be back in a week or so
... in the meantime... please to read and comment
... need to respond to all comments, including dispostion

Review Rules

richard: process for raising issues in reviews
... was more complicated than it needed to be
... so addison and I simplified some things

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/track/

richard: and we simplied the product lists

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/track/products

richard: if you look at this, you can see we've gotten rid of .prep, .adhoc, etc.
... moved any issues into named products
... makes it easier to find anything
... rewrote process
... at the link to follow

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/reviews/review-instructions

richard: much shorter and simpler
... so now we need people to go review some documents and try it out
... we have tended previously
... the initial posts went to public-i18n-core list
... but please look out for those emails
... and raise objections
... and commenters should send addison an agenda+
... give some time so people have time to read them
... and we'll discuss in the teleconference



addison: would like to go "first public working draft"

richard: pubrules, link checker, etc.
