Agenda and Notes, May 24, 2006
- Differences between Metadata Schemas and Application Profiles:
- Metadata Schemas are sets of terms and definitions thereof (like a vocabulary)
- Application Profiles use terms from schemas, and descriptions of usage, without being able to change definitions or create new terms
- AP has no control over the governance of the schema used
- Review UB meeting progress. Questions:
- Should we move ahead to specify vocabularies/properties for Metadata Schemas and Application Profiles (using our best guess of UB will come up with)?
- Should we then register these properties as ours, and prepare to crosswalk to the UB set when that becomes possible? What's the downside of doing this?
- If we don't do this, what are our options for continuing to develop the Registry?
- Diane will distribute a spreadsheet suggesting some properties we might register
- Aren't we just creating an application profile of an application profile? (for which we'll need repeatability)
Consensus: We will register the first three (agents, top level vocabs, vocabulary extras) and see whether Tom is okay with us being the bleeding edge.
- Review of Issues we might want to bring up with SKOS
- Our versioning policy? (as discussed in Seattle, but not really written up very well yet)
- Sources of definitions?
- What else?
Consensus: Joe will write up the discussion on versioning, for the SKOS list, as well as something shorter for the other two topics.
- Review Timetables and deliverables for the remainder of the summer
