- Last meeting (22-Feb-2012) we voted to publish ORG. Chairs to make request of W3C Staff contact 8-Mar-2012.
- Product: Data Cube status, also see Editor's Draft . We would like to vote today to publish Data Cube vocab.
- RE: DCAT and People - discussion was postponed to today's meeting (8-Mar) when Fadi is back and PhilA comes up for air.
- BP doc still needs work ...
- Short names - Per Sandro, "One aspect of publication by W3C is the assignment of a permanent URL to the document and its future versions. For example:
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax http://www.w3.org/TR/cooluris http://www.w3.org/TR/gov-data http://www.w3.org/TR/void http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-vocab-pub
The selection of that last part, the "shortname", is technically up to the W3C staff/management, but ideally it's something the WG is happy with, too. This week the gld list came up with the following list of short names:
vocab-people vocab-org for the Organizational Vocabulary vocab-data-cube for the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary and gld-bp for the Government Linked Data Best Practices document.
- Product: Community Directory status. We have 66 organizations worldwide listed, see stats for organizations. The W3C Community Directory application.
- Consider GLD WG F2F3 to coincide with [http://www.w3.org/2012/10/TPAC/ TPAC in Lyon, France 29 Oct - 2 Nov 2012.
- A talk on the progress of publishing Gov't LOD worldwide for SemTech SF (Bernadette, June 2012).
