DPUB IG Telco, 2016-05-02: F2F planning, Overview of Web Annotation

See minutes online for a more detailed record of the discussions. (The headers below link into the relevant sections of the minutes.)

Accessibility Note

A (virtual) F2F meeting is planned on the 25th of May; the telco spent quite some time to plan the agenda for that meeting. The bottom line is that virtually the whole of the F2F meeting should be spent on the use case documents, addressing use cases on portability, random access, digital signatures, manifests, security, etc. Relationships to the BFF work at IDPF will also be discussed, as a straw man approach to new types of manifest. The goal will be to work on real text and significantly move the core document forward.

Notes in HTML

Tim Cole, Rob Sanderson, and Ivan Herman gave an overview of the Web Annotation Work. They gave some details on the new version of the Web Annotation Data Model document, which provides a simple approach to describe an annotation structure with a body (or several bodies), target (or targets), both enriched by provenance, license, etc, features. A rich selector mechanism is also defined to ensure a better description and access to, possibly, a part of a resource, providing a finer granularity than what is available through, eg, media fragments only.

There were some discussion on current implementation plans, as well as the timing and plans to migrate the current annotation work, as part of the IDPF documents, to this new version.

The plans for the Web Annotations are to issue a Candidate Recommendation sometimes late spring this year, and hopefully publish a Recommendation sometimes by the end of this year.
