Hi all,

 

Regarding the "heart-beat" publication of Contacts API we discussed the
issue about using PoCo format for contacts API. I would like to see an
explicit note regarding the contact format (i.e. Portable Contacts)
decision that is used in the API. Something like "The use of Portable
Contacts schema as the format for contacts is subject to further
discussions in the group".

 

I would remove the following sentence in particular:

"In addition to the properties defined in this interface, a conforming
implementation must supported both the Singular and Plural OpenSocial
fields defined in [POCO-SCHEMA]." 

 

For e.g. I don't think attributes such as "connected", "relationships",
"published" are within what we call the "minimum" set supported by
implementations.

 

Further making it a 1:1 mapping, I think implies to say that we are not
compatible with other formats such as vCard, OMA CAB, etc.?

 

 

Regards,

Suresh
