15:11:51 <fadmaa> George: plans to deploy DERI neologism
15:12:01 <Zakim> +cygri
15:12:02 <George>
15:12:03 <fadmaa> ...for vocabulary management
15:12:37 <fadmaa> ...Neologism is open source platform for vocabulary management
15:12:41 <George>
15:13:03 <fadmaa> ...Richard raised a couple of questions and provided some guidance 
15:14:05 <fadmaa> ...the intention is to have internal and external vocabularies
15:14:27 <fadmaa> ...some issues were raised regarding authors for example
15:14:38 <DruidSmith> DruidSmith has joined #gld
15:14:45 <George>
15:14:55 <fadmaa> ...neologism assume its users as authors. not true for external vocabularies like void
15:15:00 <George>
15:15:54 <fadmaa> ...generally, there is no problem from perspective
15:16:18 <fadmaa> ...some work around can be utilized  
15:16:26 <DruidSmith_> DruidSmith_ has joined #gld
15:16:42 <bhyland> q+
15:16:43 <fadmaa> ...the main goal of is cataloging vocabularies rather than managing them and supporting the full life cycle 
15:17:14 <fadmaa> bhyland: who will be the maintainer? how will the logistics be?

15:17:34 <Zakim> +DruidSmith_; got it
15:17:48 <BartvanLeeuwen> +q
15:18:25 <fadmaa> George: a couple of people will be managing it in a lightweight manner.. they will be the point of contact
15:18:32 <cygri> q+
15:18:51 <fadmaa> ...users will request support and adding vocabularies through the contact people
15:18:51 <George> ack bhyland
15:18:57 <Zakim> -cygri
15:19:06 <George> q?
15:19:22 <fadmaa> BartvanLeeuwen: I like neologism... my problem with it is that it is very slow
15:19:31 <Zakim> +cygri
15:19:46 <fadmaa> ...responsiveness is very slow. wondering if there is enhancements
15:20:24 <fadmaa> cygri: we experienced slow responsiveness on
15:20:41 <BartvanLeeuwen> q-
15:20:45 <fadmaa> ...most of it was solved and the situation had been improved to an accceptable degree
15:20:48 <bhyland> George: the points on contact for adding vocabs to will be George Thomas and Chris Musialek.
15:21:25 <BartvanLeeuwen> q+
15:21:35 <bhyland> cygri: Neologism is a fairly light application, performance is "good enough", it isn't meant to be mission critical (?)
15:22:06 <fadmaa> cygri: any plans to support editing vocabularies on
15:22:20 <fadmaa> George: initially it will mainly be used as a catalogue
15:22:39 <fadmaa> have a place where people can make their vocabularies visible
15:22:50 <bhyland> George: is intended to provide a place to make vocabs more visible.  It isn't intended to be a place for maintenance of vocabs.  It is a directory listing.
15:23:00 <fadmaa> not expect people to be using it for actual creation and editing

15:25:08 <fadmaa> bhyland: do we want to recommend on incorporating tools 
15:25:47 <Zakim> +??P37
15:25:48 <fadmaa> ...especially with tools that might not be commercially supported
15:26:12 <fadmaa> ...maintinance might be an issue.
15:26:18 <annew> annew is on SIP
15:27:03 <fadmaa> cygri: I have experience with working on tools in the course of research academic projects
15:27:24 <bhyland> cygri: I feel that it's important to make a statement of usability, maintenance, support for a given tool. 
15:27:28 <Yigal> But how do we know what the current and future plans for such a tool are?
15:27:31 <fadmaa> is important to make the status of the project and its level of support very clear 
15:28:09 <bhyland> cygri: There are various ways to characterize this in objective ways, e.g., when was it release, how often is it updated, how many posts to the mailing list, etc that all give an indication of whether a healthy community exists.
15:28:11 <fadmaa> ...some simple measures can help. looking at the number of releases, its mailing list, etc.
15:28:18 <Zakim> + +
15:28:34 <bhyland> cygri: If external funding went into the project, that is also a good sign.
15:29:14 <bhyland> +1 agree with cygri and think the GLD WG should provide guidance on this topic.  
15:29:19 <fadmaa> summarize, if you make recommendation on a tool it is worth spending time on documenting the status of the project
15:30:25 <George> q?
15:30:43 <fadmaa> bhyland: shall we add this to other places like the cook book, the vocabulary...?
15:31:01 <BartvanLeeuwen> q-
15:31:12 <Yigal> I think a pre-defined checklist would be a good idea, because it would help ensure a standard for evaluation.
15:31:15 <Biplav> Biplav has joined #gld
15:31:47 <fadmaa> cygri: I will send an email with a list of bullet points outlining the main points to look at
15:31:49 <BartvanLeeuwen> cygri, could you share a link where I can find some information on the performance tuning you described earlier ?
15:32:05 <fadmaa> sandro: this sounds relevant to procurement
15:32:24 <annew> q+
15:32:47 <bhyland> George: Suggested that the "tools viability" checklist should go in the Procurement section of the Best Practices Deliverable.
15:32:54 <fadmaa> BartvanLeeuwen: is there a pointer to how to tune neologism performance?
15:33:11 <fadmaa> cygri: I suggest sending an email to neologism mailing list 
15:33:16 <annew> on no mic failure
15:33:21 <annew> I'll ask by chat
15:33:34 <annew> The issues seem to be about stability!!

15:41:31 <annew> zakim ??P37 is annew
15:41:38 <sandro> q+
15:41:44 <fadmaa> ...but suggest focus on list of features and a checklist
15:42:05 <annew> q-
15:42:05 <fadmaa> ...the commercially supported product are more in the scope of the community directory
15:42:52 <fadmaa> ...procurment people working on Linked Data need more help with aspects like security
15:43:05 <fadmaa> ...and other list of features 
15:43:14 <bhyland> ack bhyland
15:43:43 <fadmaa> sandro: I do not support listing products
15:44:08 <cygri> q+
15:44:17 <cygri> q+ to ask about how technical this should get
15:44:23 <bhyland> Sandro: Recommend we list product "categories", defined by TimBL's 4 data principles.
15:44:23 <fadmaa> ...but generally we list functionality that the product should support
15:44:34 <annew> +1 to sandro
15:44:35 <bhyland> Sandro: Avoid listing specific products by name.
15:44:36 <fadmaa> ...e.g. support SPARQL, resolvable URIs
15:45:29 <cygri> q?
15:46:16 <sandro> q-
15:46:38 <fadmaa> cygri: how technical should the procurement document be?
15:47:03 <Zakim> - +1.703.362.aabb
15:47:07 <fadmaa> ...what level of details need to be in it?
15:47:35 <bhyland> cygri: Who is the audience?  A technical evaluator or business manager?
15:47:45 <fadmaa> George: procurement report is mainly for project manager
15:48:06 <fadmaa> them when deciding to buy a product
15:48:48 <fadmaa> bhyland: two group of people are involved.  technical people and manager
15:48:51 <annew> q+
15:49:05 <cygri> ack me
15:49:05 <Zakim> cygri, you wanted to ask about how technical this should get
15:49:14 <fadmaa> ...we need both general guidelines and technical details

15:50:06 <sandro> q+
15:50:18 <Zakim> + +1.703.362.aaff
15:50:20 <Yigal> If anyone is still wondering about Hadley's project, it's
15:50:28 <fadmaa> ...I think  there should be a list of checklist for business people
15:51:35 <fadmaa> ChrisMusialek: I have experience with the procurement process. typically it does not go to the technical details
15:51:52 <cygri> zakim, who is speaking?
15:52:03 <Zakim> cygri, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: +1.202.208.aaee (91%), raphael (26%)
15:52:05 <bhyland> ChrisMusialek: I've seen very general guidance.  It doesn't get into the very technical details, it doesn't make sense to prescribe to that level of granularity.  Typically, the people writing those RFI/RFPs, they aren't very technical.
15:52:10 <fadmaa> the procurement document technical details are not mentioned as they are usually not written by developers
15:52:19 <bhyland> zakim aaee is Chris
15:52:43 <cygri> zakim, aaee is Chris

15:53:14 <fadmaa> @bhyland thanks wil lcorrect that
15:53:28 <ChrisMusialek> ChrisMusialek has joined #gld
15:53:30 <sandro> sandro: So, I'm imagining that for each item on the checklist (eg 4-principles, sparql, etc), there's reference to the spec, some additional detail where the spec has too much wiggle room, maybe a reference to test suite, and some justification/explanation for this check list item.
15:54:08 <fadmaa> sandro: having  a list with links to standards containing more details
15:54:22 <fadmaa> s/list/checklist/
15:54:58 <annew> I've got to go. Can't tell if you could actually hear me or not on this call.
15:55:10 <annew> Will send an email about stability that I have been working on
