ACTION: Marc to keep time schedule - due 2006.6.19
14:15:35 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-17 - keep time schedule [on Marc Schröder - due 2008-06-19].
14:17:38 [IanWilson]
Marc asks whether we agree that XML is the format we should progress with
14:18:09 [IanWilson]
Ian says connection to other groups (who seem to all be using XML) will be very difficult unless we do not use XML
14:18:55 [IanWilson]
Andy says Commercial organizations will have difficulty accepting anything but XML
14:19:16 [IanWilson]
Bill says that OWL has flexibility
14:20:28 [felix]
I vote for using XML cause I think it meets the requirements fair enough (gut feeling) and is known much wider than OWL which will help spreading the use
14:20:37 [IanWilson]
Bill has shown with his example ( OWL can be use sub classes as our specification calls for

14:21:20 [marc]
14:21:32 [IanWilson]
After a vote (Bill abstention due to lack of XML knowledge) we agree to move forward with XML as our format of choice
14:21:38 [marc]
this link contains a set of links to things from existing markup languages that we could build upon
14:27:49 [IanWilson]
After surveying various other current XML specifications points made are that they are complimentary to what we are trying to do
14:29:00 [IanWilson]
Marc notes that we are not trying to redefine existing language features in our languages
14:29:39 [IanWilson]
Instead we could look at how they have already solved problems we need to solve and perhaps use their solutions or be inspired by them
14:29:42 [marc]
next item
14:30:25 [marc]
e.g. "simple cases should look simple"
14:30:40 [marc]
... or "structure should be explicit enough to avoid confusion"
14:31:05 [IanWilson]
Here is a more general set of best practices :
14:32:34 [IanWilson]
Marc notes that apparently a first working draft does not contain an XML schema
14:33:00 [IanWilson]
so we should focus our discussions on syntax
14:33:27 [Zakim]
14:34:57 [IanWilson]
Andy says we should focus on incorporating other languages as much as possible
14:37:20 [IanWilson]
Ian says perhaps we can bias our representation towards being explicit
14:38:05 [IanWilson]
Bill asks to clarify the definition of "explicit" and "implicit"
14:38:26 [IanWilson]
Marc explains about EARLs implicit structure
14:39:54 [IanWilson]
Felix mentions that we have already agreed some of the points
14:42:04 [IanWilson]

14:42:29 [marc]
next item
14:43:13 [IanWilson]
Enrico suggests that our choice of guiding principals be guided by first writing examples
14:43:37 [IanWilson]

Marc asks how other would like to follow the discussions
14:47:49 [IanWilson]
Bill would like to follow the discussions
14:49:07 [IanWilson]
Ian says that the dynamics are different between group and private communicatuions
14:49:48 [IanWilson]
Marc says that he would prefer initially to keep discussions within the small group
14:50:16 [IanWilson]
Ian says perhaps we can "cc" other interested parties
14:51:18 [IanWilson]
Marc suggests sending a note to the public mailing list posting that we are discussing things in a small group and anyone else interested should let us know
