Topic: Remaining Issues
15:37:54 [jtandy]
15:37:56 [phila]
jtandy: Not going to get a great deal of discussion as most have a PR associated with them.
15:38:02 [phila]
jtandy: These are the 4 BP issues
15:38:11 [jtandy]
15:38:36 [phila]
jtandy: This asks whether our list of file formats should include scientific file formats
15:38:49 [jtandy]
15:38:53 [eparsons]
15:39:05 [phila]
phila: DWBP avoided discussion of formats
15:39:12 [ChrisLittle]
15:39:19 [phila]
jtandy: We discussed this in Delft - and decided to include some.
15:39:29 [jtandy]
15:39:35 [jtandy]
ack eparsons
15:39:36 [phila]
... Personally, I think that the scientific formats are difficult for general Web usage
15:40:07 [phila]
eparsons: I don't feel strongly, but ... remembering our primary audience. For that mass of people how important are scientific formats for them?
15:40:12 [phila]
jtandy: I agree
15:40:16 [jtandy]
ack ChrisLittle
15:40:44 [phila]
ChrisLittle: I suggest we put them as examples of how not to do it. Here are some formats with lots of data that are not accessible but used for good tech and historical reasons
15:41:09 [phila]
... That might be a nudge to owners of those data sets to offer something else
15:41:18 [phila]
eparsons: I'll be in St Johns for some of the meeting
15:41:23 [phila]
jtandy: Chris will be there.

15:41:43 [AndreaPerego]
15:41:47 [jtandy]
ack AndreaPerego
15:41:47 [phila]
jtandy: I hear that we don't need to fix it right now. The wider Web community prob won't want those.
15:42:20 [phila]
AndreaPerego: I agree that we pro shouldn't include those in the table. But I'm concerned about saying this is a worst practice as it will open a can of worms.
15:42:35 [phila]
... Saying what you shouldn't do means providing evidence for why.
15:42:42 [phila]
jtandy: I also don't like saying this is bad.
15:43:07 [phila]
... What I think I hear from Chris is why you might not want to use the following list of sci formats.
15:43:11 [jtandy]
15:43:21 [phila]
jtandy: Can you make a note ChrisLittle to say that in St Johns
15:43:31 [jtandy]
15:43:46 [phila]
jtandy: This is about the ack section.
15:43:51 [phila]
... Purely editorial.
15:44:07 [phila]
... We can tidy up the acknowledgement section. We can decide who is and isn't on the list
15:44:21 [jtandy]
15:44:29 [phila]
jtandy: There's a PR related to this
15:44:42 [phila]
... I put in a namespace table, Clemens suggested it wasn't very helpful.
15:44:44 [jtandy]
15:44:57 [phila]
jtandy: That's adding an id to each example so we can use it
15:45:27 [jtandy]
15:45:46 [phila]
phila: Agh! I though ReSpec added IDs to examples

Topic: Public comments
15:46:10 [phila]
jtandy: All done except the one marked for Linda to resolve.
15:46:13 [jtandy]
[Linda] This is on dataset discovery - it's not a direct comment but can be added as an example to the relevant BP
15:46:13 [jtandy]
15:46:27 [phila]
jtandy: Linda had a look and said there wasn't really any change to make.
15:46:47 [AndreaPerego]
I agree.

ClemensPortele: RDF and XML namespaces are different, so I split them into 2 different sections
15:49:07 [phila]
... I also did some corrections.
15:49:23 [phila]
... Around GeoSPARQL and GML
15:49:31 [phila]
... I split it into 23 sections and added an intro.
15:49:36 [phila]

AndreaPerego: This is about an example about referring to metadata published in a Web-friendly way.
15:58:42 [phila]
... The PR says it's about BP12 but actually it's about BP13 about metadata
15:58:50 [phila]
... Idea is to include it there.
15:59:04 [phila]
... It's about an API, work was done around GeoDCAT-AP
15:59:17 [phila]
... Uses CSVW interface.
15:59:34 [phila]
... Idea is to provide an example for using your geospatial catalogue in a Web-friendly way and in RDF
15:59:46 [phila]
jtandy: I believe the API is experimental but the practice is not.
