The agenda for tomorrow's IDE phone call are the two remaining issues from
2 weeks ago:

(4) Any products out there with %% localization support already?

            Jon: http://openajax.org/pipermail/ide/2009q3/001202.html
            Kin: http://openajax.org/pipermail/ide/2009q3/001203.html
            Jon: http://openajax.org/pipermail/ide/2009q3/001205.html

TIBCO is running into a conflict with existing products which  already use
similar syntax and is wondering who has  implemented %% and if this can be
changed (perhaps ## or ~~ or __MSG_key__ like OpenSocial).

Jon's 3 options:

(a) Keep what we have with %%, (I'm against that given how this is very
problematic for one of our key early adopters.)
(b) Replace %% with a different two-character sequence for localization,
such as ##. For example, ##MyLocalizationVar##
(c) Adopt OpenSocial's localization variable approach:

Jon's recommendation is (b): simply replace %% with ##. (The 1205.html
email provides rationale.)

(6) Finalizing the metadata spec
            What implementation experience do we need?
            Detailed spec reviews: set a deadline?
            Target dates for finalization and approval?
