The group had a quick discussion about the current state of play which is as follows:
- XSLT for POWDER-BASE to POWDER - coming along nicely. The basics are done, with a manageable To Do list (ordered lists, tagsets, conflicting descriptions, predefined descriptions). This is an important implementation of the formal doc.
- The Semantic POWDER processor is done, complete with tarball and help page at http://transonto.sourceforge.net/
- The second POWDER Processor is expected to be online any day now.
- The comments received from Michael Schneider and Jonathan Rees need (and will get) a proper answer but the result is that we do not need to substantially change the semantic extension.
- Tony Hammond's point about the '//' in IRIs being mandatory when they should be optional in the regular expressions is not right as POWDER$ is about HTTP and HTTP-like URI schemes. Other URI schemes can be handled by POWDER but by extending POWDER-BASE.
- Minor editorial issues are being dealt with.
- The registration of the Media Types and @rel type is progressing but it's taking quite a lot of effort.
- The group is fully on track to get ready for a request for a PR transition before Christmas although we may just mis the moratorium. A lot depends, particularly, on whether the XSLT work gets caught by any banana skins along the way.
We're getting there.
