5. Process issues

5.1 OData v4 Errata issues in New or Open state:

Ralf: I move to resolve ODATA-707, ODATA-712, ODATA-713, and ODATA-716 as proposed.

Martin seconds

No objections and no more discussions, the motion carries ODATA-707, ODATA-712, ODATA-713, and ODATA-716 are now resolved as proposed.

5.1.1 ODATA-685 is already OPEN and RESOLVED

Mike summarizes the issue

ODATA-685 has already been resolved on June, 12

5.1.2 ODATA-707 is already OPEN

Mike summarizes the issue

Martin: Text is now: "Numeric values have a first-class representation in JSON but are not further distinguished, so they include an odata.type annotation unless their type is Double."

5.1.3 ODATA-712 is already OPEN

Mike summarizes the issue and this is ready for motion

5.1.4 ODATA-713 is OPEN

Mike summarizes the issue and this is ready for motion

5.1.5 ODATA-716 is OPEN

Mike summarizes that this issue is ready for resolution as well after Mike updates the proposal and Ralf has rolled back changes already made and not aligned with the proposed resolution as discussed during the meeting

Mike states the revised proposal: "Call out that If-Match only makes sense for operations on existing entities (update, delete). Doing a PUT/PATCH with no If-Match fails if the entity requires an ETag and already exists. Doing a PUT/PATCH with no If-Match can still be processed as an insert if the entity does not exist."

5.1.6 ODATA-631 is OPEN (noted in JIRA as applied)

Mike explains, that ODATA-700 clarifies the path syntax for the annotation element, ODATA-631 clarifies this for other elemnts (ie. non containment properties).

All discuss what parts shall be submitted to ISO and which will remain part of OASIS spec to keep eg. the vocabulary URLs stable and flexibly update the vocabularies in short cycles, as they are exactly designed to inject flexibility into the OData cosmos

All agree, that we will tackle ODATA-631 as part of OData v4.1 No other issues

5.2 OData v4 applied resolutions:

The TC is reviewing the application of the resolutions since last F2F meeting in a live shared document walk through

6. Next meeting planned for Jul, 10 2014

All acknowledge Rams achievements and congratulate him on the nomination

Meeting adjourned at 10:12 PDT
