ADMS call tomorrow, RADion proposal (potentially affects DCAT)

Hi Gofran and Fadi,

I don't know whether you have this in your diaries but tomorrow at 14:00 
UK/IE time is what should be the final call within the ISA Programme 
about ADMS.

The agenda is at [1] and is essentially issue-bashing so that Makx can 
produce the 'final version' - or version 1.0 or whatever you want to 
call it.

My reason for bringing it up here and now is that once the results of 
that call have been written into the spec, that's what we're going to be 
given here in the GLD to take forward with the strong hope that, 
ignoring relatively trivial formatting changes, we'll then publish it as 
a FPWD. Therefore it's important that if GLD has any views on ADMS 
they're put forward soon, preferably in that meeting.

Most of the issues are relatively minor and focus on the allowed values 
for various properties. Personally I regard these as out of scope for 
the spec although very much in scope for the particular implementation 
ISA is aiming at (Joinup) so I'm not too concerned how that aspect goes 
in this context.

What I *am* concerned about is the proposal I've put forward to create a 
new vocabulary called RADion: Repositiory - Asset - Distribtion.

This came about when I was trying to reconcile ADMS with DCAT and 
another vocabulary that is not scheduled to come to GLD concerning open 
source software forges, called ADMS.F/OSS. It's clear that ADMS, DCAT 
and ADMS.F/OSS have a lot in common, at least in terms of class 
structure, but they differ in the detail as, of course, they're designed 
to describe slightly different things in different contexts. The hope is 
that each can be made up of sub classes of RADion although to outward 
appearances they would be almost entirely unaffected (DCAT has a lot of 
implementation, people are building ADMS-based systems already). The 
attached zip file has RADion and ADMS as UML and RDF schemata.
