  3. Check list of open action items
  4. Topics
    • Review of Nick's proposal for conformance to profiles.
    • General suitability of URIs for Conneg: Tom Baker asked on the comment list if the need to identify profiles specified inside of documents containing standards or other profiled specifications means that "if sections of those documents were not clearly defined, any DCAT profile (or indeed most profiles that currently exist in the wild) would not be suitable for content negotiation as per CONNEG?"
    • Status check of 3PWD Issues:
    • Keeping the IETF & W3C drafts in sync
  5. AOB

Dial In details

NB These details only apply for the CNEG sub group, they are different from the joint calls

 Joining instructions: (official participants and invited guests only)
 For text discussions, minutes, joining the speaker queue, actions & issues IRC channel: #dxwgcneg on on port 6667
 Please be sure to join both IRC and WebEx and use the same nick in both (or it gets very confusing)
 When you join the IRC channel, please immediately type 'present+ {yourname}' (this adds your name to the participants list in the minutes)
 See WebEx Best Practices for further information

  Zakim instructions in English
  Basic instructions in Portuguese

To start the meeting, check that trackbot is in the IRC channel (it usually is). If not, type:

/invite trackbot

(Subgroup meetings may need to specify the irc e.g. /invite trackbot #dxwgdcat)

Then you can type:

trackbot, start meeting

That should invite zakim and RRSAgent and generally get things ready to go. As a reminder: the Zakim IRC bot handles things like the speaker queue, RRSAgent handles the minute-taking, present and regrets list etc.

Please note that you will see a message that Zakim does not see any meetings scheduled at this time. This is a reference to the old conference bridge (also called Zakim) that is no longer in use. Scheduling is now done under the WebEx system. If you're feeling nostalgic for the old Zakim greeting, it's archived (of course).

Once you have started the meeting, you should see all three bots running:

If any are not in the room, type /invite and then the name of the bot followed by the relevent channel e.g.

/invite Zakim #dxwgdcat

/invite rrsagent #dxwgdcat

During the meeting you may need to set the access permissions on the chat log with this command:

RRSAgent, make logs public

Then to create the minutes, type

RRSAgent, draft minutes
