5. Tutorial Page


Next step for TomA is to apply some standard style to this page.  Also there
was some discussion about the ongoing process for the tutorials page ...
TomA suggested maybe better as a wiki.

There was discussion as to whether the tutorials activity should be included
as a task force.

Also links to existing OWL and other tutorials ...

ACTION: TomA to add links from last telecon to tutorials page 


6.1 OEP

Guus offered congratulations on publishing three notes.  With all the
comments coming in, should there be a separate list for comments?

The consensus was that a single list is fine for now.

ACTION: Alan to respond to guus' document on qualified cardinality

The question was raised as to where OEP should go next.  Guus suggested that
if the WG takes on units and measures, this would be in scope for OEP.  Alan
suggested a short note on closure axioms.

6.2 PORT

PROPOSED: Danbri suggests that Alistair be listed as a PORT TF coordinator.

Alistair has sent announcements of SKOS Core phase 2 development to
public-esw-thes@w3.org, RDF/SW IG list and NKOS list.

One of the first issues we looked at is how to effectively manage the SKOS
Core vocab as a collaborative schema development.  The schema management
policy written up in <http://esw.w3.org/topic/SkosDev/SchemaManagement> was
suggested for SKOS Core and so far no objections have been raised.  This
involves a simple URI naming policy for terms, and using the vocab status
vocabulary plus some of the versioning features from OWL.  

This issue overlaps with VM TF, agreed to feed into work there when the TF
gets going.  Danbri suggested perhaps a note on collaborative schema


There has been not much activity.  Discussion of Brian's recent draft, Guus
questioned whether it fully matches the RDF description.  Brian said this
could be correct, stated this draft is just a placeholder document.  Guus
raised the issue of an identifier policy for synsets.  

Multiwordnet <http://multiwordnet.itc.it/> was mentioned and discussed

6.4 XML Schema Datatypes

No discussion.


TomB confirms this TF will get going after summer.  He suggested cutting
down the TF overview, and surveying the members of the group about whether
each item is in scope.  Re notes and activity, TomB sees a 'part 1' dealing
with the 'low hanging fruit' and a 'part 2' dealing with more controversial

PROPOSED: TomB to survey members of group re activity and scope.


Minutes of RDF/XHTML TF first telecon

Discussion of XHTML 2.0 WD ... it describes RDF concept from first
principles, without normative reference to RDF specs.  

Wrt to what should be the output of this TF, Danbri confirmed goal to
revisit the requirements and support work of XHTML guys, help them qith QA.
TF will be reviewing [sections 19 and 20 of] the XHTML 2.0 WD hoping to get
feedback to Ben in 2-3 weeks.

Discussion of whether to publish note on GRDDL.  Ralph asked how much
endorsement should this WG give to XHTML 2.0 and GRDDL proposals.  Guus
noted that the public expects guidance notes from the WG.  

All agreed TF is very important, and also want to make sure there is no fork
in XHTML and RDF concepts, agreed that XHTML specs should have normative
reference to RDF (they currently don't).  Important point is to make sure
people know how to use existing RDF vocabs within XHTML.

6.7 ADTF

TomA pointed to Urchin, a news feed application from Nature Publishing
Group.  Should this be included in ADTF weblog?

Urchin case study from Nature <http://www.biopathways.org/semweb/RSS_WG/>

ACTION: TomA get MINDLAB to write description of urchin for APDTF weblog.

Discussion of whether to add Kowari to ADTF blog.  Consensus that this is
really a toolkit and lower level.  

Discussion of how to handle ADTF demos collection as it grows.  Libby
suggested wiki might have been better (easier access).  Proposed to leave
for now and reorganise later.
ACTION: Ralph to link ADTF blog from WG page

David W said it is important that this sort of resource gets periodically
