David, all,

Can you please outline how this 'sprint' works? I have never been involved
in sprints so I looked for a definition and found one at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_(software_development)#Sprint. That says
it is usually for teams of three to nine people (so that works for us) but
also that a sprint commonly takes two weeks. Your message seems to imply
that the two-hour call *is* the sprint.

Other than that, I am not quite sure how we are going to handle 15 open
issues in a two-hour call -- it means we'll have an average of eight minutes
per issue which sounds unrealistic. It may be true that some (e.g.
https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/125) will take less time but there are
others that have seen a lot of discussion already and may take more that two
hours each. 

Should we maybe select two or three issues that are the most important and
that can be decided in less than an hour?

Makx.

dcat:distibution.

As discussed via doodle poll/DCAT subgroup meeting, the first DCAT sprint
will take place next Tuesday 5th February 2100 UTC till 23:00 UTC.  This
will be a working meeting looking at the outstanding issues (and any
associated concerns raised in external or internal feedback) and will aim to
pull together appropriate conclusions and text to be contributed to the
working draft.  The current idea will be to work around a google doc that
should allow effective collaboration from all participants, though other
ideas are welcome.

The webex details for the meeting have already been sent out to the WG mail
(https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jan/0617.html ).

The remaining open issues in github are listed at
https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues?q=is%3Aissue+label%3Adcat%3ADistribution+
is%3Aopen.  If anyone (potential attendee or not) wants to add more please
make sure they are tagged with dcat:distribution.

There are obvious topics around "informationally equivalent", packages/zips,
positioning of distributions with respect to services as well as others that
don't necessarily stand out from the detail - the meeting can decide how we
work through this, what the priority is, what will benefit from discussion.

Note:  The regular DCAT meeting will still be held on Wednesday 6th February
at 21:00 UTC for 1 hr as usual, to cover broader progress discussions,
feedback handling etc

David Browning
