Co-chair meeting minutes: March 14, 2023


Having decided to migrate the syntax of MNX from XML to JSON in the last co-chairs’ meeting, Adrian has added support for JSON to the docgenerator tool, which will make it possible to update the MNX specification to use JSON syntax. The next step will be to migrate the spec from JSON to XML, and Adrian anticipates that there will be some back and forth on some of the specifics of the migration of specific XML elements and attributes to JSON. Adrian anticipates creating a new discussion on GitHub with the specific examples he encounters.

Myke has started work on updating the introduction to the MNX specification in light of this change, and he anticipates being ready for a pull request in the near future.


Following some further discussion concerning the potential removal of the deprecated DTDs for MusicXML 4.1 (#481), the co-chairs have decided to postpone the removal of the DTDs in the planned MusicXML 4.1 release.

Next meeting

The next co-chairs’ meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 28 March 2023.
