Hi all,

Here is an update on recent SKOS Core dev work for SWBPD-WG.


-- Current Proposals --

The following are latest tabled proposals for modifications to SKOS Core:

(1) Ordered/Labelled Collections

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0076.html

(2) Additional Note Properties

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0083.html

(3) Support for Subject-Based Indexing

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0081.html

(4) Relocating Semantic Relation Property Extensions

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Aug/0081.html

(5) Published Subject Indicators for Concepts

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0082.html


-- Progress on Documentation --

The *SKOS Core Vocabulary Specification* stands at

http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core/spec/

This is generated by a python script from the RDF description of the SKOS
Core vocabulary.  As changes are made to SKOS Core, so this document will be
regenerated.

The *SKOS Core Guide* is under development on the SkosDev wiki.  The table
of contents with links to drafts of sections is at

http://esw.w3.org/topic/SkosCoreGuideToc

This is progressing well, with first drafts for most sections.


-- Discussion Issues --

(1) 'skos:denotes' and the relationship between SKOS concept schemes and
other RDF descriptions.

A proposal was made for a new property ('skos:denotes') in SKOS Core to
express relationships between SKOS Concepts and RDFS/OWL
Classes/Individuals.  The ensuing debate and corresponding points of view
are summarised and linked from:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0020.html

No consensus has yet been reached on this issue.

(2) Support for versioning and change management; representations of concept
status and stability.

In preparation for a draft section of the SKOS Core guide on versioning and
change management, a discussion was undertaken regarding change management
practise in the thesaurus community.  See the thread 'candidate and
deprecated concepts' which follows from the email:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2004Oct/0040.html

The draft section as it stands on the wiki is at:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/SkosCoreGuideToc_2fSectionVersioning

(3) Lexical relationships

Support for expressing lexical relationships within SKOS Core was briefly
discussed.  See the following and followup emails:

That's all.
