Meeting minutes


Sebastian: seems to be no guests today

invited expert application

Sebastian: thomas jaekle, replacing kevin otolo
… bosch io, to continue work on model implementation and products

McCool: this is fine, but application needs to be updated to document bosch io affiliation

Kaz: we can accept, he can try to update, if there is a problem, we can ask w3m to contact him

prev minutes


Sebastian: signatures, update on that today; updates on smart cities (discussed in marketing, more today); testfest and f2f planning; publications;
… resolutions taken on some last-minute (informative) updates to the TD draft
… change log and abstract
… then a resolution to publish the updated version
… use case doc publication still in process; liaison discussion; quick TF updates

Sebastian: any updates needed to the minutes?

Sebastian: hearing no objections, these will be published

quick updates

Sebastian: first, our IG charter runs out June 30, need to recharter
… so we will do an extension for 3mos, will prepare a new charter

McCool: note that draft will be here: https://github.com/w3c/wot/blob/main/charters/wg-ig-2021-proposed.html

Sebastian: also, signatures

McCool: yes, based on XML signatures and JSON processing
… in the long run, I think this can be complementary to LDS

smart cities

Sebastian: three pres, but only 5m each, want to avoid redundancy

McCool: note in particular that I will cover the basics, others can address extensions and applications
… we can review drafts in the marketing call next week

Andrea: will look at how these technologies can be applied to communities, incl. hybrid (rural/urban)

Sebastian: we will be talking about tooling

Andrea: I also want to mention we plan to talk about discovery in an upcoming conference


<kaz> Testfest wiki

McCool: we should talk about what meetings can be cancelled

Sebastian: would be better if we concentrate on testfests

McCool: so... for discovery, perhaps should focus on testing, even if it puts the spec behind schedule

Kaz: one exception, have brief main call to synchronize people


<kaz> vF2F wiki

Sebastian: still filling in topics

<kaz> Proposed topics

McCool: important that we fill in time estimates, each TF should do
… also allocated 2h to discuss testing results so we can figure out how to address gaps


Sebastian: TD update will be out next week June 1


IETF T2TRG, summary planned for June 17/21/22; doodle ongoing

McCool: should not conflict with F2F, either Seb or I will join and give WoT update

workshop at the IoT Conference

Andrea: workshop on iot conference, on discovery
… and we would of course cover wot, but would not limit the workshop to that
… would like blessing, and also check for overlaps

<kaz> call for workshop page

Kaz: a bit confused
… so you're organizing a workshop on WoT discovery?

Andrea: yes

Kaz: so we should look at the call for workshops page above
… Andrea, could you generate a draft proposal and send it to the WoT groups?

Andrea: I will send a draft proposal out by email and ask for feedback


Daniel: scripting no call, holiday

McCool: discovery: need to make a decision about API restructuring... please review prs etc and comment

Sebastian: marketing: captions are done, in multiple languages, for animation
... also, TD wiki page is now accepted and updated, finally

McCool: do think we need to update the web of things wiki page too, and eventually need to cover discovery, etc.

Sebastian: also discussed various conferences and talks coming up
... please see marketing agenda for a list

McCool: use cases: discussed cultural space

McCool: testfest: working on metadata for implementation report; added some details around discovery
