(continuing review of open issues at:


Jon: In email, Howard points out that the constructor for ClientHub takes
params, and now everyone seems to be on the same page and agrees that's
it's OK for getParameters to be on the base interface.

Javier: I've been thinking about this. Seems a bit hokey that the container
would use this. I'd like to take a look at it this week and see if I can
think of a better approach.

Jon/Rama: Sounds good

RESOLUTION: Leave this issue open

Distinguishing between multiple hubs

Jon: Howard provided options 1 to 5, and then recommended #1. Javier and I
agreed on email. Any objections?

(no objections)

RESOLUTION: Close this issue. Accept option #1, which means no spec

OK to update spec and main branch of open source project

Jon: We have resolved most of the open issues for the spec now. Javier, you
just sent email saying that you have the open source working with the
iframe/smash provider now? You had wanted us to hold off until you did

Javier: Yes. I didn't really expect to find anything, and now that I did
it, I didn't find anything. I think it's OK to promote the changes to the
spec and the trunk. There is still work to be done, but I don't expect
major changes.

Jon: I think we need to have the spec and code updated now. I have been
approached by people outside of OpenAjax who are looking at Hub 1.1 with
intent to use it. They need to see more accurately what we are doing.

Rama: I agree. If the spec is up to date, people are more likely to try to
use it.

Javier: The code is now working enough for people to start playing around.
Undoubtedly there are still bugs, but it is operational now.

Jon: Any objections?

RESOLUTION: Update the spec to reflect the new APIs. Move the branch into
the mainline trunk.

ACTION JON: Update the spec

ACTION JAVIER: Update the open source trunk

Rechartering phone call

Jon: Just an announcement. There will be a rechartering phone call on
Friday. Our process requires a phone call where all members are invited to
attend. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend, but it isn't a
requirement. The rechartering effort is mainly to extend the working group.
The charter has been changed, but IMO no change in scope. Just updated to
reflect where we are today. But people should make their own judgments.
After the phone call, the members will be allowed to vote on the
rechartering in order to advise the Steering Committee. Then the Steering
Committee looks at the votes and decides whether to approve.

Jon: Any questions?


Next phone call

Jon: With the holidays and no major open issues, let's skip the next two
weeks. If we have anything major to discuss on Monday Jan. 5, we'll have a
phone call then. Otherwise, we'll skip that week, too.
