Notes from Nick for this meeting:

  • the main work that the editors have thought was needed for the overall scope of the specification, the Alternate Representations Data Model, is now present in PR 1038 - merged!
  • the Conneg Subgroup's Issues are down to 19, main discussion now focussing on:
    • #501 Registration of target attribute "profile" - seemingly now solved, as per latest comments
    • #20 Short tokens - a position statement for review has been added in PR #1060 (to eb merged < 24hrs)
