McCool: ml was not available, so we merged mostly editorial PRs, then created a pre-restructure branch so more radical PRs would still have a convenient rollback point

McCool: btw, it seems some people are assuming directories will follow the profile but I had not previously considered this to be a requirement. But it MAY may sense... we will have to explicitly discuss in the next call

Lagally: any objections to publishing the minutes?

Lagally: hearing no objections, minutes are approved

Discovery PR #588

<kaz> wot-architecture PR 588 - Add Discovery refs, dfn, and section

McCool: basically just added a couple of paragraphs that describe the purpose and basic architecture of the Discovery service

McCool: notice the strong emphasis on security and privacy

Lagally: we should be explicit about what is normative

McCool: in particular, it is not required that discovery be done using WoT Discovery, that there is a WoT TDD, or that peer-to-peer is supported
… so I would suggest merging this but I can add another paragraph in a new PR to make these points explicit
… probably a "MAY NOT" assertion? Not sure

McCool: we probably do want to *encourage* use of WoT discovery, but not require it

carry over requirements to use cases #72

Lagally: housekeeping, just merge; carried over to use case repo
… is in the repo, not the document

<mlagally> wot-profile PR 72 - carry over requirements to use cases TF

McCool: should we reschedule the arch call?

Lagally: let's try contacting Ben first to see if he has an ongoing problem

Lagally: Summary of action items
... Mccool to check the pagination response codes in the discovery spec
... Ben to double check the list of error codes in WebThings Lagally: check error codes of Oracle's digital twin implementation
... Daniel to double check node-wot's error codes, are there error response payloads?
