[Meeting summary - 27 Aug 2007] Scribing. Acknowledging contributions.
API draft. Other publications. UWA/DD call. Wiki migration.

[Scribing] For most participants, this is the end of the vacation season
so work is getting back on track. Meeting attendance will increase and
we will need more people to keep minutes. This is an important task as
the meeting records enable the group to produce summaries for public
consumption (including this summary). We also expect to see more
comments from meetings appearing on the public lists. A new scribe rota
will be in place for next week's call.

[Acknowledgements] For the DDR API document, a specification that is on
the W3C's Recommendation track, it is proposed that notable
contributions to the work will be acknowledged in the published
document, in addition to the customary summary of participants. We hope
that the list of notable contributions will be big, as more group
members actively participate.

[API draft] The API document has been evolving in recent weeks in
preparation for its first formal publication at the end of September.
The chair noted that the TOC was now quite extensive, though perhaps an
extra section on the deployment scenario would be useful (to explain the
role and use of the context key). All of the group participants are
being encouraged to contribute to the document. Comments will appear on
the public list.

[Other publications] The legacy documents (Landscape and Ecosystem) are
being processed for publication. The few remained incomplete
subsections, which have not attracted any comments, shall be removed as
being unnecessary. What remains will form the final version of these

[UWA/DD] It is hoped that a joint call between DDWG and UWA can be
arranged for some time in September to discuss common matters relating
to the ontology.

[Wiki] In an attempt to improve the presentation of the DDWG wiki, an
experiment is underway to migrate the current pages to an alternative
platform, while retaining the original URLs (as far as is technically
possible). If successful, this might also be adopted by other groups.
