    Dear GUID and TAG members,

    The TDWG Infrastructure Project (TIP) 
<http://www.tdwg.org/activities/tip/> has been working on a *new* draft 
of the *TDWG LSID Applicability Statement*. This document-

   1. provides guidance on how to use Life Sciences Identifiers (LSID)
      to meet specific requirements of the biodiversity information
      community and
   2. defines how to identify shared data objects in biodiversity
      information applications using LSID.

    This specification, soon to be submitted to TDWG for ratification, 
summarizes all agreed decisions by the TDWG-GUID group 
<http://www.tdwg.org/activities/guid/> and addresses the requirements of 
the TAG group <http://www.tdwg.org/activities/tag/>.

    We would like to ask you to please *review* the applicability 
statement and provide feedback. The document is available at:

http://www.tdwg.org/standards/150/download/ (it is also available in PDF 

    This version of the applicability statement is significantly 
different from the version reviewed last year 
For that reason, we would like to ask those who kindly reviewed the 
previous version of the document to review this one as well.

    Please make your comments using one (or more) of the following methods:

   1. Send your comments to tdwg-guid at lists.tdwg.org
      <mailto:tdwg-guid at listsREMOVE-THIS.tdwg.org> or directly to
      ricardo at tdwg.org <mailto:ricardo at tdwgREMOVE-THIS.org>;
   2. Revise the MS Word document posted above using the /Track Changes/
      feature and send it to ricardo at tdwg.org
      <mailto:ricardo at tdwgREMOVE-THIS.org>; or
   3. Post your comments at the end of the wiki page at:

    All comments will be later collated at the end of the wiki page 
mentioned above.

    When we are all satisfied with the contents of this applicability 
statement, we intend to ratify it as a TDWG standard.

    We would really appreciate your feedback.

    Best regards,

The TDWG Infrastructure Team (TIP)
