Previous Meeting




Chair to start the meeting by typing on irc:

trackbot, start meeting

Trackbot should already be on the channel but if for some reason it is not call it with the following command:

/invite trackbot

Zakim won't know what meeting it is. Just ignore it. Pick a scribe from the list or ask Zakim to pick one up with the following command:

Zakim, pick a victim

Unfortunately Zakim has no idea who's scribed before so you may have to ask several times before getting an acceptable answer...

Then type:

scribe: xxx

Also, with WebEx, Zakim doesn't know who is on the call so, as people join they should record their attendance with the command: present+ <nickname>

For additional info, see the Zakim documentation page.

Approval of Minutes of 2015-09-29

Social Web WG F2F Fall 2015

We have a date and location per the Doodle poll:

Activity Streams 2.0

AS Publication status

Update per:

  • We resolved to publish AS WDs (Socialwg/2015-09-15-minutes) with the new W3C Software & Document license. The editor subsequently ran into issues with W3C publication systems not being ready for the new W3C license. As of last week Socialwg/2015-09-29-minutes some W3C systems issues were resolved, others were in progress.

What are the remaining W3C systems issues?

  • Taking AS 2.0 to Candidate Recommendation
    • What are the steps needed to make AS 2.0 a CR? What do we do if we can't take those steps?

SocialWG AS links broken

All AS editors etc. drafts links here:

appear to be broken (404). Could we get this fixed?

I just fixed links but currently Core and Vocabulary say Working Draft instead of Editor's DraftPavlik elf (talk) 09:40, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

AS 2.0 Vocabulary relevance for terms required for Social API and Federation

proposed by elf Pavlik

  • Q: Does AS 2.0 Vocabulary need to include all the terms used by Social API or Social API will define independent vocabulary?
    • first, prev, next, last, itemsPerPage, current, startIndex seem only relevant to data access via API not logical structure of the data (as 2.0: Collection)
  • Q: Does AS 2.0 Vocabulary need to include all the terms used by Federation or Federation will define independent vocabulary?
    • to, cc, bto and bcc seem only relevant for distribution of notifications which may belong to Federation (AS 2.0: Audience Targeting)

AS Issues

Social API

  • Status update
  • Getting the group back on track thread, moving linked data vs microformats "eternal war" out of group, and moving towards mandatory ActivityStreams API requirement
  • ActivityStreams library/tests progress

Tracking of Actions and Issues

  • Specific Issues / Actions anyone has progress to report:
    • Issue 4 and related Action 35 Tantek Çelik (talk) 22:14, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
      • Last week brought to the WG for consideration as a WG Editor's Draft (one week review) to complete action 35 and resolve issue 4
      • Updated it with explicit "Participation" section in header as requested by WG, using wiki and IRC,
      • Proposed plan: Use W3C Wiki for WG Editor's draft and W3C Social Web github for W3C Draft issue discussions rather than email (same as ActivityStreams does in its header)
