ACTION-2129: Draft text for handler disabling


<scribe> [DONE]

Steven: Please check that you are OK with the text.

Email type



Steven: What to do?
... We could have two email types, one for the strict definition, and one for what people would expect

Erik: Some websites validate email addresses too strongly.
... It is difficult

Steven: All our regexp does is check that there is an @ in the middle :-)

Erik: We need to be friendly to users...

Steven: What to do?

Erik: Our implementation doesn't use the XForms definition...

Steven: What do you do?

Erik: We use the Apache library

Steven: What is their definition?

Erik: I can link to it

<scribe> ACTION: Steven to summarise the Apache email validation [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2017/06/28-forms-minutes.html#action01]

<trackbot> Created ACTION-2130 - Summarise the apache email validation [on Steven Pemberton - due 2017-07-05].

Steven: I propose we adopt a 'strict' email type (IETF style), and then one closer to what people really expect in everyday life.

Philip: My vacation is Aug 19-31

Alert MIP


Steven: Go with this?

Erik: I need more time to think.



Steven: Another topic not to discuss today.
... Let's talk about it next week.
