The following is an attempt to structure the topics that must be
discussed. On a first level, I believe we need to discuss:
(GEN) General topics, e.g. discussion about the agenda in general,
standardization process in general, perhaps exploration of
funding possibilites to organize one or several workshops.
(RQT) Requirement analysis and information model for descriptive
information in biology: Stepping back and asking ourselves what
we need in terms of information model, entities/attributes or
functionality. We should try to create an outline here to
further structure this discussion
(XML) Exploration of the suitability or desirability of XML to be
used as a metaformat for a new exchange format for descriptive
data (incl. discussion of XML-Data, XML-Schema, XML-RDF, names
spaces, Dublin Core, etc.
What else? RQT and XML should definitely be structured further. I
will make a proposal for RQT tomorrow.
- Always use a subject line
- If possible, add the outline code (GEN, RQT, XML) and perhaps the
number in the outline for this topic after your own subject in
brackets. See the example for (GEN) in this posting.
- When responding to a posting, please delete any information you are
not commenting on. Do not just leave the entire posting as quoted
text before or after your own text!
I believe that structuring will help the discussion, but please feel
free at any time to submit a discussion paper on any topic you
