    Dear all,

    Please find below today's meeting minutes.




    Attendance: Rodolfo, Yoshito, Mihai, Lucía. We have quorum.


      R:  I move to approve May 7 meeting minutes - https://groups.oasis-open.org/discussion/meeting-minutes-2#bm0b5b6273-c98d-47f2-b25f-9b336668084c

    Y: I second.

    R: Meeting minutes approved.

        Summer availability.

    R: We will have to skip the meeting in June 18.


         Remaining items before XLIFF 2.2 public review. Publication preferences.

    R: We are almost ready to go. We contacted our OASIS administrator announcing that we approved the TC approved the draft to go on public review. We were asked what to do with the two specs (we have two, the core and the extended). They wanted to know if we wanted to present them as two different specs or a single one as DITA did (Rodolfo shows the procedure that was used in DITA, and the pros and cons of each option).

    L: I think the best option is to publish the two documents as one spec like DITA did. We would just need a paragraph in each document explaining that there are two flavours (core and extended) and make a link to each document so it will be clear to the readers.

    M: Yes, it makes sense.

    L: Let's do a roll call.

    Roll call: Do you agree to publish both documents as one spec, including a paragraph explaining the differences?

    Y, R, M, L: yes.

    L: thank you, we will inform the OASIS administration about the TC's decision on this topic.

    Y: I have a question about the typos found, are we also making an errata of 2.1 including the typos that were found?

    R: we can only fix examples, but we cannot add the new features. And then we will have to go to an extensive round of approval processes because XLIFF 2.1 is an OASIS standard. I do not think it is worth the effort.

    R: In the future if we want to have 2.2 ISO standard, we will have to make it OASIS standard before. It is a bridge that we will cross when we get there.

    Y: I agree.

         ISO status

    R: OASIS has sent the approval to ISO on the minimal changes (typos) they included in the document, and ISO will publish XLIFF 2.1 as an ISO standard.

    L: That is really good news.

    L: No new business, meeting adjourned.
