15:09:37 <cygri> Agenda:
15:11:36 <kate_geyer> cygri: We're looking for a scribe for next week
15:12:00 <kate_geyer> ... or we can meet every two weeks
15:12:04 <vassilios> +1
15:12:06 <LuigiMontanez> +1
15:12:09 <martin> +1
15:13:02 <kate_geyer> cygri: based on the votes, the default should be every two weeks
15:13:16 <vassilios> i a mnot sure i will be either
15:14:06 <kate_geyer> cygri: Scribe for 10 June will be fadi
15:15:09 <kate_geyer> cygri: Dcat being used on
15:15:42 <kate_geyer> ... vocabulary in flux, we should wait to give them detailed feedback
15:16:00 <kate_geyer> ... Any interesting developments
15:16:16 <kate_geyer> cygri: Moving to use cases and requirements
15:17:09 <kate_geyer> ... No negative feedback, several emails indicate it's fine
15:17:52 <kate_geyer> .. In terms of content the use cases are the same, but sandro and cygri moved them around as indicated last meeting
15:18:11 <vassilios> Perhpas, we could still keep it open for a while
15:18:33 <vassilios> just avoiding my mic
15:18:41 <vassilios> perhpas people could contribute
15:18:44 <vassilios> still in the page
15:18:52 <vassilios> for a week or so
15:19:09 <vassilios> lets say by next meeting (?)
15:19:49 <kate_geyer> cygri: Is it time to stop editing the document and focus on next deliverable
15:20:34 <vassilios> +1
15:20:36 <fadi> +1
15:20:36 <LuigiMontanez> +1 agree
15:20:37 <kate_geyer> Should we declare as a group that we are satisfied
15:20:42 <martin> +1
15:21:37 <kate_geyer> cygri: Make this a W3C Interest Group note
15:21:56 <kate_geyer> ... perhaps we should wait for sando's input
15:22:01 <vassilios> we need W3C feedback
15:22:24 <cygri>
15:22:33 <kate_geyer> cygri: Now we can move to the Vocab Reference topic
15:22:39 <cygri>
15:23:10 <kate_geyer> cygri: I've started to populate the issue tracker
15:23:41 <kate_geyer> ... the Issue tracker is for the entire Egov interest group
15:24:03 <kate_geyer> ... sandro has created a product called dcat
15:24:26 <kate_geyer> ... The link goes to issues related to the dcat product
15:24:53 <cygri> ISSUE-40
15:25:00 <kate_geyer> ... the Issue tracker is tied in with the IRC and mailing list
15:25:56 <kate_geyer> ... Sandro will explain that, but we can add through the web interface
15:26:40 <kate_geyer> cygri: I would like to go through the document, see what's there, and discuss
15:26:55 <kate_geyer> ... and then go through the open issues
15:27:21 <kate_geyer> cygri: Lokking at the Vocabulary reference now
15:28:14 <kate_geyer> s/Lokking/looking
15:29:23 <Mike> Mike has joined #egov
15:29:31 <kate_geyer> cygri: Introduction, then overview will have diagram
15:30:31 <kate_geyer> ... a separate section explaining literals and resources
15:31:24 <kate_geyer> ... Last section is on extending the vocabulary and best practices
15:32:44 <kate_geyer> ... Within each class, the doc explains the properties and includes a usage note
15:33:25 <kate_geyer> cygri: Any thoughts/feedback?
15:34:17 <kate_geyer> cygri: Should this outline/general structure remain?
15:34:30 <kate_geyer> ... Would everyone be happy with that?
15:34:31 <LuigiMontanez> I need a bit more time to digest, but have no objections as I review it now
15:34:53 <Mike> Looks interesting--great work
15:35:03 <martin> +1 ( I like the document )
15:35:04 <kate_geyer> +1
15:35:52 <cygri>
15:36:01 <kate_geyer>  cygri: No objections to the structure. I would like to look at the open issues
15:36:50 <cygri>
15:36:55 <kate_geyer> cygri: First issue is ACTION-37
15:38:45 <kate_geyer> ... regarding the use of a string vs. a URI
15:39:23 <kate_geyer> ... for dct:publisher, dct:accrualPeriodicity, ...
15:40:32 <kate_geyer> fadi: some references are inconsistent 
15:41:04 <kate_geyer> cygri: we can encourage the use of a resource
15:43:03 <kate_geyer> cygri: the problem is the requirement to make it easy to apply to existing catalogs
15:43:28 <kate_geyer> ... we will not get better data than already exists in the catalog
15:44:11 <kate_geyer> cygri: I will ask Ed if he has any recommendation on this
15:44:23 <cygri>
15:44:30 <kate_geyer> cygri: Moving to Issue 38
15:46:41 <kate_geyer> cygri: This is regarding a single dataset with multiple downloads
15:48:13 <kate_geyer> ... The URI of the Distribution would be the download itself
15:49:05 <kate_geyer> fadi: In most of the catalogs, the dataset might not have a download file
15:49:23 <kate_geyer> ... The data can be reached by following a URL
15:50:29 <kate_geyer> cygri: fadi, can you respond to this on the email list
15:50:44 <cygri>
15:52:35 <kate_geyer> fadi: Many catalogs have an RSS link, web service, etc. where access can be automated
15:53:55 <kate_geyer> fadi: The decision was that subclasses were appropriate
15:54:25 <kate_geyer> cygri: The issue is that information would be lost
15:54:33 <cygri>
15:55:39 <kate_geyer> fadi: Only makes this distinction
15:56:38 <kate_geyer> cygri: The problem is that if these catalogs have a generic granularity field, it can be hard to distinguish
15:57:41 <kate_geyer> cygri: The proposal is to add these to dcat
15:57:57 <kate_geyer> ... in addition to dcat:granularity
15:59:20 <kate_geyer> cygri: There will always be this question of adding to dcat or not
15:59:50 <kate_geyer> cygri: The last issue will be skipped in the interest of time
16:01:49 <kate_geyer> cygri: Many things to do on this document and pieces to take responsibility for
16:02:05 <kate_geyer> Anything else?
16:02:30 <vassilios> thanks
16:02:34 <martin> Thank you. Bye
16:02:34 <kate_geyer> Thanks!
