Meeting minutes

<trackbot> Sorry, but no Tracker is associated with this channel.

<DaveBrowning> No

<alejandra> problem of deprecation in schema.org, example: https://‌schema.org/‌Attorney

all: [discussion on scope and place for the alignments of DCAT / Schema.org]

<alejandra> Riccardo's document with examples: https://‌docs.google.com/‌document/‌d/‌1R9jSpn8vVXJkJqVD7lZzYbD2o3mVmbPQkdf8velRXy8/‌edit?ts=5bd71bcb#heading=h.pltpe5vgr6a8

alejandra: Jeremy mentioned the approach used in the SDW Best Practices of having regular releases every 3/4 weeks.

SimonCox: Another option is to make regular announcements pointing to the ED.

alejandra: Actually, so far we received 2 comments already. Should we draft a response?

SimonCox: About Clemens's comment, I don't think it is a problem to provide a response and resolving that comment.

DaveBrowning: I have an action to reply to Clemens, and create an issue in GH where the comments can be discussed.

SimonCox: There was another comment in GH from Stephen Richard highlighting a communication issue about the inclusion of services in DCAT.

<SimonCox> AndreaPerego: we need to make very clear that cataloguing Services is not mandatory

<SimonCox> ... this is an additional capability, which is provided in addition to descrbing Datasets and Distributions

<alejandra> https://‌github.com/‌schemaorg/‌schemaorg/‌issues/‌1423

<SimonCox> We should also add examples of (i) SPARQL endpoint (ii) Services that are *not* bound to specific datasets

<alejandra> that's the issue about webapi

<alejandra> in schema.org

<SimonCox> ... we have an example of the latter from the OGC Soil IE (it is actually not even a 'geospatial' service per se)

<alejandra> Milestone: https://‌github.com/‌w3c/‌dxwg/‌milestone/‌14

all: [discussion on the best way to describe the mappings]

alejandra: Have we an agreement about where we put the mappings (i.e., outside the DCAT spec)?

DaveBrowning: My understanding is that there's not yet an agreement.
