Hi Tadej,

At present, ISO Cat maintains the data categories used in TBX. So, for example, if you wanted to use the "term location" context (essentially the same thing as our proposal for the "context" data category), you could point to the ISO Cat location for the category. What you could not do is resolve terms to ISO Cat since it doesn't host terms itself.

One of my hopes, however, was that we might host some sorts of important ontologies in ISO Cat so that they have a stable reference that can be shared with other standards more easily.

I'm not sure if that was what you were proposing or not, so can you clarify what role you would see for ISO Cat in the model you mention? (It may be that I'm missing something obvious, so please forgive me if you've already answered this.)

Best,

Arle

Unfortunately I'm on a small mobile device at the moment where searching for the relevant content in the irc doesn't work well. Does anyone recall right off?  I'd like to discuss our needs tomorrow in the ISO TC37 meeting on the DCR since I can get immediate feedback from the development team here. It does seem already that they are keen to collaborate with us in general but specifics will help me get the right results.
