Explains his reasons ... 15:55:42 <bhyland> PhilA: Recalled discussions in prior W3C standards activities (i.e., POWER), any vocab that depends upon any one person versus an organization with a published (stewardship) plan. 15:56:08 <cygri> q+ 15:56:15 <PhilA> ack bhyland 15:56:20 <Biplav> q+ 15:57:23 <Biplav> Bhyland: Makx question is at the core of LD. 15:58:28 <Biplav> Bhyland: publishing vocab puts an implicit social contract that one would be keeping the vocab alive for a while. 15:58:54 <bhyland> … W3C has no hesitation in recommending standards / vocabs defined by others. 16:00:21 <PhilA> I've done some work on this recently... http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/community/semic/document/10-rules-persistent-uris 16:00:50 <cygri> q? 16:00:53 <Biplav> Bhyland: There should be a checklist when someone is putting a vocab in public domain, in best practice document. 16:01:26 <bhyland> q? 16:01:37 <PhilA> ack cygri 16:02:29 <bhyland> cygri: We've (DERI) done some work on conformance to a vocabulary and what it means. 16:02:33 <Biplav> Cygri: reuse can done in a few ways. (a) Conformance is one way. 16:04:03 <bhyland> … We shouldn't normatively depend on vocabs not defined by an open, consensus driven process... 16:04:05 <Biplav> Cygri: shouldn't normatively depend on others who have not gone through a formal process. 16:04:30 <PhilA> This is relevant to ISSUE-50 http://www.w3.org/2011/gld/track/issues/50 16:04:55 <PhilA> s/POWER/POWDER/ 16:05:23 <Biplav> Cygri: We normally mean a weaker form. Who has authority to change and how much is the impact. 16:05:36 <Makx> q+ 16:05:54 <bhyland> cygri: Not as worried about resources 404'ing rather, more concerned about changing underlying vocabs that are the building blocks of the LOD cloud... 16:07:04 <Biplav> Bhyland: let's revisit again. Important to get it right or we will have backlash. We need to be rigorous. 16:07:05 <PhilA> My understanding of cygri's words: The notion of conformance that we define should not depend on factors that are not controlled as carefully as our own work - to which +1 16:07:27 <cygri> PhilA, exactly. 16:07:52 <PhilA> ack Biplav 16:07:52 <bhyland> q? 16:08:22 <PhilA> Biplav: This problem keeps being repeated, whether it's vocabularies, papers, wiki entries etc., There are patterns of how this is addressed and we should come back to it 16:08:28 <PhilA> ack Makx 16:08:58 <bhyland> Biplav: This issue is repeated & there are patterns that we should keep in mind to guide our deliverables/guidance/best practices 16:09:10 <Biplav> Makx: we should have criteria. 16:09:11 <PhilA> Makx: Everyone's pointing to a set of criteria.
