1. Attendance and Membership
- Lars Marius Garshol
prospective membership period of 60 days being over, he is welcome as
a new TC voting member. With the resignation of Francis McCabe, the
number of voting members is now 11.
- Michael Priestley
is prospective member until the end of March.
- Murray Altheim
has sent no news since he left Sun Microsystems to join Open University,
England in late January. Technically, he does not seem to be an OASIS
member anymore. His TC membership is therefore to be clarified.
2. Technical work
The document for first deliverable is the basis for this meeting's work.
The version 0.4 is
under discussion. Modifications and questions will appear in version
- Section 3 - Glossary:
After review, some minor vocabulary clarifications are made.
- Section 4 - Focus
of debate is on global structure of PS Doc, and definition of metadata.
- The question
of definition of a PS Doc extension, and recommended scope of use,
is open but not settled.
Has this definition to be recommended at all, and if yes, does it
have to be declared at PS Doc level or in each separate PS Indicator?
- It is decided
that the needed metadata for PS Doc and PS Indicators will be expressed
independently of any standard and syntax, and that use of Dublin
Core elements will be recommended in a separate section.
- Use cases
where PS Doc is built from aggregation of various sources are considered
as very likely, and considering those practices as conform to the
recommendations rule out any requirements for PS Doc as a URI namespace.
Such use cases also bring issues concerning publishing authority,
copyright, trust, source stability.
- Section 5 - Consensus
is achieved on the fact that the recommended formats will be XTM, RDF
Debate is to know if for each of those formats, specific requirements
will be set, or simply best practices.
A majority of TC members think that such specifc syntax requirements
are needed to ensure interoperability.
