Agenda (Draft)

  1. Accepting minutes of the last meeting - [1]
  2. Accepting/ adjusting the agenda
  3. Pending pulls (Please take a look at the pending PRs. It would be great if we could merge them before the meeting. Use GitHub to point out barriers to merging them.):
  4. Publishing schedule for next WD - Building a common view on short-term priorities and deadlines
  5. Versioning: feedback on the updated section
    • discussion around issues 1251 868: Should we consider to add new types of versions ( e.g., following the RDA suggestion about Revision, Release, Collection) and/or consider minting versioning relations specifically applied to DCAT backbone?
    • should we update sections § 13.2 Relationships between datasets and other resources and § C.2 Dataset provenance in order to include aspects more specific to versioning? How to harmonize qualified and unqualified relations?
  6. Closing actions

Dial In details

 For text discussions, minutes, joining the speaker queue, actions & issues IRC channel: #dxwgdcat on on port 6667
 Please be sure to join both IRC and Zoom 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
  W3C Telecon Resources:
  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
