XML Schema Datatype: unanswered questions.
> last moment. Numbers and time/dates both have been very difficult to get > right (indeed, we basically gave up on producing an acceptable type > heirarchy for dates and times for XML Schemas 1.0). It seems to me that WG gave up producing acceptable types (not only hierarchy but types themselves) for dates and times. The followings are my post to www-xml-schema-comments@w... about date/time related types. I think those two are fairly important: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0366.html http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0365.html But nobody gave an answer. The following three are very simple mistakes. A WG member promised me a correction. But the truth is the same errors still remain in PR spec. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0270.html http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0271.html http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0272.html Those two are also related to date/time types. And again, no answer has given. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0368.html http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2001JanMar/0367.html Actually, I've posted more than 20 comments to www-xml-schema-comments@w... but more than half are unanswered at all. It sure is a good way to discourage people from sending comments. I'm not familiar with W3C process, but is WG allowed to ignore public reviews? I understand that the WG is very busy and obviously it is impossible to answer *all* of the comments, but how can they ignore comments like first two ? The spec says > Technical and editorial comments should be sent to the publicly > archived www-xml-schema-comments@w... mailing list. But there is no description about how comments are treated. regards, ---------------------- K.Kawaguchi E-Mail: k-kawa@b...
