4115 - Summary/Objective
411601 - Follow up ref SDS 29 0000, ref SDS 27 0000.
411603 - Received ref DRT 1 0001 from Eugene Kim following up correspondence on
411604 - 000812 discussing the sequence for project development, for example
411605 - Grant Bowman's letter, ref DRP 1 0001 responding to a letter submitted
411606 - to the DKR team by Eric Armstrong.
411608 - Eugene says today that technical discussion has been going all over
411609 - the place on the list; he proposes people focus on...
411611 - 1. Architecture and design for stage one: e-mail archiving.
411612 - ref DRT 1 WH6L
411614 - Doug is meeting with several people individually to try to come
411615 - up with a unified architecture, which we can then propose to the
411616 - community at large. Even if you are not one of those people
411617 - Doug is meeting with initially, you can make some important
411618 - contributions to the design, especially by commenting on some of
411619 - the documents that have been produced
411620 - and that will be produced.
411621 - ..
411622 - 2. Augment->XML->HTML. ref DRT 1 AB7L
411624 - Shinya has done an initial translator, and Grant is going to
411625 - help here also. Hopefully, the two will start reporting on
411626 - their progress on this list, especially so that others can start
411627 - giving feedback. Once an initial translator is up, this will
411628 - have ramifications for the item above, because Doug will be able
411629 - to put up many of his design notes and documentation from years
411630 - past.
411632 - 3. E-mail DTD and Augment DTD. ref DRT 1 PB8K
411634 - I proposed the former already, but it's nowhere close to ready
411635 - for primetime. I'm going to go over some specs this weekend to
411636 - try to solve some of the outstanding issues, but help is always
411637 - useful. Grant and Shinya are ostensibly working on an Augment
411638 - DTD.
411640 - If you want to contribute to these areas, the best thing you can
411641 - do is absorb the appropriate XML specs, especially XLink and
411642 - XPointer. I know it would be useful for me if I had someone to
411643 - kick ideas and questions off of regarding these technologies.
411644 - ..
411645 - 4. Client mockups and prototypes. ref DRT 1 MC9M
411647 - The debate over what technologies we should assume in the
411648 - clients are premature, in my opinion. The first step should be
411649 - to mockup potential user interfaces. Sheldon is working on this
411650 - right now, but other contributions would be great.
411652 - These mockups could be in the form of images or prototypes.
411654 - [On 000928 Eugene cites work on mock ups in progress report.
411655 - ref SDS 30 3B6K
411656 - ..
411657 - Based on feedback from Eric and others, I'm convinced that
411658 - we need to mockup a number of clients. One absolutely needs to
411659 - be web-based (HTML 4.0). But we also need one or more
411660 - prototypes that demonstrate fancier functionality. These would
411661 - not only demonstrate the direction the OHS is headed, but it may
411662 - also persuade people, such as the Helix Code and Mozilla folks,
411663 - to modify existing client software to incorporate the
411664 - functionality of the OHS. I think Python would be a great
411665 - technology to use for these prototypes, and I hope Paul or
411666 - others can offer advice or contribute in these areas.
411668 - [On 001101 Mozilla example of open source projects have
411669 - overwhelming tendency to use bad management. ref SDS 31
411670 - O5K
411672 - So far, there is no OHS/DKR, and so there is no
411673 - functionality to incorporate. On 000427 Jack Park cited
411674 - Mozilla DirectDom as guidance for OHS/DKR design.
411675 - ref SDS 5 1092
411677 - On 000515 Lee Iverson requested volunteers to evaluate
411678 - Mozilla source code. ref SDS 14 G34I
411680 - There is no record that anything has been done.
