Hi Marcia (forwarding to the list, as it is a relevant question, and the continuation of yesterday's call [1])

I'd have said that if contributors don't know linked data they would not even think of contributing :-)

Now, we're in the real world, and we'll be sending the call to more general lists. So there could be still completely out-of-scope contributions that we don't want if we don't put such link.

Any objection?

     A note on this: while adapting the SKOS use case mail I felt very
     tempted to re-use the introduction at
     http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Template (copied
     below). I really like that piece of text, and I think it is a good
     way to assert that we especially value user-oriented use cases for
     our task, even if other cases are welcome as well. However it would
     make the mail we send a very long one, even if we shortened it to
     half of its current size.

     I'd thus suggest to fit this introduction into
     http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/UCCuration , which is
     communicated to external contributors in the current draft mail.

     Maybe we can discuss this on the coming call. But it is now quite
     late, and anyway objections or approval by mail are always welcome,
     especially from these who have sent regrets :-)



     The mission of the Library Linked Data Incubator Group is to help
     increase global interoperability of library data on the Web by
     bringing together people involved in Semantic Web
     activities--focusing on Linked Data--in the library community and
     beyond, building on existing initiatives, and identifying
     collaboration tracks for the future.

     Achieving this goal will depend on identifying shared models, modes
     of collaboration, and a common understanding of the changing ways
     that data is shared on the web.

     One approach to this problem is to identify use cases that reflect
     expectations of how end-users will exploit library services and
     assets, how libraries will make such assets and services available,
     and the infrastructure and devices necessary to complete this
     connection. It is important, as well, to recognize that libraries
     exist within an ecosystem of many information providers and
     services, and the interrelationships among all information providers
     is an important component of such use cases.

     A use case describes what a user can do with a system by specifying
     a sequence of interactions between user and system leading to a
     desirable outcome. It should not be confused with specifying the
     technology itself: a use case may allow for many alternatives to
     achieving user needs. While use cases are typically devised
     independently of underlying technology (that is, they are intended
     to expose functional requirements, rather than to specify the means
     by which such requirements are satisfied), the focus of this
     Incubator Group is specifically on how linked data approaches might
     be brought to bear so as to improve the overall ability to satisfy
     user needs. The linked data perspective should therefore be integral
     to the use cases.

     To help analysis across use cases and to keep a consistent level of
     information, each use case should try to follow the template below,
     providing something for each non-optional field.
