See Annex B for address list.
2 Agenda for meeting -- N153
The draft agenda (N153, 4) for the meeting was approved with two
11a SC22 Work program review -- Prolog, and
11b Annual Business Plan of WG17.
3 Drafting committee
WG17 decided a drafting committee was not required for this meeting.
Klaus Daessler agreed to serve as secretary.
4 Minutes of the Uppsala meeting (WG17 N148)
Germany objected that the formulation of resolution A13 and the German
vote of `Yes' doesn't make the German position clear.
The minutes of the Uppsala meeting were then approved.
4.1 Matters arising from the Uppsala meeting
1) A translation process to make a Japanese Industrial Standard
for Prolog will start this year. The work to create clause 3,
Definitions, is seen as main part of this activity.
2) Standard Interpretation Subgroup has not yet been established.
This shall be done by end of June 1997.
3) Agreement of SC22 for making ISO Prolog widely available cheaply
shall be reached. RSS is asked to do this by end October 1997.
5 Future meetings
WG17 did not arrange a further meeting, but has a provisional
invitation from USA. Roger Scowen will arrange the next meeting about
two or three months after the close of balloting to approve the Final
Committee Draft for Part 2, i.e. probably mid 1998.
6 Reports from national panels
No written reports from the member bodies are available, although
groups had met at least in US, Britain, Japan and Germany.
7 Consideration of comments on ISO/IEC CD 13211-2 (N151)
Roger Scowen had circulated a draft `Disposition of Comments' to those
present and the commenters.
WG17 reached agreement --- see resolutions A.1, A.2, A.3, A.4, A.5, and
WG17 N157 -- Disposition of Comments (in press).
WG17 thanked Klaus Daessler and Siemens for hosting its meeting in
WG17 also thanked Jonathan Hodgson (A.8).
The following timetable (see A.6) was agreed:
9.1 15 June 1997
Jonathan Hodgson to publish a preliminary Draft International Standard
taking in account the comments made and decisions taken in Schliersee
for email discussion.
9.2 30 June 1997
Roger Scowen to request SC22 to establish a Standard Interpretation
9.3 15 July 1997

to make ISO Prolog widely available cheaply.
9.6 30 November 1997

NOTE --- During the meeting, WG17 believed that the next draft would be
the DIS. It has since been pointed out (and confirmed in the e-mail
below from Bob Follett - SC22 Chairman) that the new system of drafts
must be adopted, and that the next draft will be the `Final Committee
Draft'. This will be followed by a `Draft International Standard' with
a two month Yes/No ballot, with no changes permitted.

Subject: (SC22.1149) New DIS Procedures
The migration plan for the new DIS procedures (SC22 N2410) allows use
of the old 4-month DIS ballot for CDs approved before 1 May 1997, BUT
ONLY IF THE TEXTS ARE RECEIVED BY ITTF BEFORE 1 SEPTEMBER 1997.
Please note carefully that approved CD texts not received by ITTF by 1
September for DIS ballot, will need to be CIRCULATED AGAIN FOR A
4-MONTH FCD BALLOT before forwarding to ITTF for an FDIS ballot.
If you have any CDs approved before 1 May that have not yet been
forwarded to ITTF, please contact your project editors and make sure
that they complete their editing and forward them before the end of
this month, in order to avoid substantial delay and additional cost.
The votes for the resolutions were taken on Wednesday 30 April.
Four countries voted: Germany, Japan, UK, and USA.
A.1 Module qualification
WG17 resolves that inspecting or database-manipulating a procedure
defined inside a module 'M' which is not the current module, without
specifying 'M' in the module qualification of the inspecting or
manipulating goal shall be an error:
permission_error(access, implicit, Pred)
A.2 Module delimiter directives
WG17 resolves that the wording of the module delimiter directives
shall be as follows:
1) for a module interface as begin directive:
and as end directive:
shall be the module name of the begin directive.
2) for a module body as begin directive:
and as end directive
where 'module_name>' shall be the module name of the begin directive.
WG17 resolves to have a re-export directive in the module interface,
which imports and at the same time re-exports the specified procedures
of another module (cf WG17 N126).
Individuals: For 2, Against 0, Abstain 2.
Countries: For 2, Against 1, Abstain 1.
A.4 Textual control -- 1
WG17 resolves, that at the beginning of preparation for execution of a
module (interface) of every module the predefined operators, char
conversions and prolog flags shall be in effect.
A.5 Textual control -- 2
WG17 resolves that the operator definitions, char conversions and
Prolog flags of module bodies belonging to a given module shall
accumulate during preparation of subsequent bodies of that module.
1) The project editor to publish a preliminary Draft International
Standard taking in account the comments made and decisions taken in
Schliersee by June 15, 1997 for email discussion,
