A. Meeting secretary for this meeting?
B. Acceptance of the Nov 28, 2006 meeting minutes
Accepted, w/o changes.
- document status - no response yet - we will bug them after the meeting
It is likely that the Language independent document is half way
through the document process (up to 4 months).
We will publish Java and C binding documents on the www.drmaa.org page and
make a comment that they are likely final documents, maintaning ability to
changes at a later point.
They would be sent to OGF steering committee after the main documents get
since they could become official informal documents and out of synch with
later adopted (hopefully!) recommendation documents.
F. Open/general issues discussion

languages like C++.
It is OK to extend the API to get native facilities help address lack of
exceptions and introspection.
Non OO and non-introspective languages section is needed to address the
It needs to be prominent in the document.
Add sentence: The DRM missing states could be omitted from the
Dan to word it and send to list. [done!]
The state diagram needs to be included in the IDL doc. Hrabri to send the
original image to Peter.
There needs to be only one input/output/error streams.
Page 11. Better elaborate multiple DRMS implementations in one library.
Few spelling and format errors are also communicated to be fixed.
Aborted in 8.18 need attention.
9.2 init could be not thread safe, but it does not make the implementation
In init the developers could cache return values from libc or similar system
libraries non threadsafe calls.
The team decided to keep replicated text sections, since it is easier to do
but also to look into single entries in isolation.
