Some Comments by Participants

Alan- issue of content negotiation; different URI's; need a theory for data records

   - solve data record issue first! return default RDF

Francois - why not adopt the uniprot:XXXX model? (part of Francois' 'Banff Manifesto')

Amit- Glycoproteins with different id's; need id mappers similar to 'same_as'

Mark Wilkinson - Promise always to keep data concept the same

  1. what is named by the URI
  2. namepsace listing
  3. Versioning

Alan- Contract space for what stays the same, what can/will change

Chris- Aggregates/Views and atomics

Alan- agree to follow up on these issues

Vote: split on Authority vs Community as the 'owner' of the URI

Additional items
