Publishing WG Telco, 2019-09-09: Settling Issues, pre-TPAC publication

See minutes online for a more detailed record of the discussions.

The meeting concentrated on a number of issues that could be either closed or that should be discussed on the F2F meeting next week. In particular, issues 40, 22, 13, and 16 were all closed without further actions, whereas issues 12 (“What is null base URL”), 9 (“Should canonicalization include absolutization”), and 51 (“Values for readingProgression”) were postponed to the F2F meeting.

There was also a short update on the latest editorial draft changes since the last official output. The changes were mainly on the manifest document: removal of the concept for canonical manifests (with the emphasis of a “canonical” representation of the data structures encoded in WebIDL) and the strict separation of the language set for the publication (i.e., the content) and the literal texts in the manifest proper. Depening on external circumstances the new versions may be published before TPAC.
