Hi folks

Going through today's minutes for corrections, I first choked on the list of
attendees.
It is automatically generated by RSS agent, and below is the raw output

TomB, +1.614.764.aaaa, +33.1.53.79.aabb, emma, Felix, Bernard, GordonD,
kcoyle, +1.361.279.aacc, Alexander, Andras, +43.316.876.aadd, whalb, kefo,
+1.330.655.aaee, marcia, Jonathan_Rees, +1.423.463.aaff, +49.4.aagg,
jneubert, rsinger, jeff_, michaelp, +49.613.692.aahh, LarsG, gneher

When stripped of phone numbers, you are left with a list of pseudos more or
less transparent. I've seen that in the previous minutes, scribes have let
the list as is, or maybe just cleaned of phone numbers. If you compare
across minutes, you find out that the same (?) people change pseudos from
one call to another, or even inside the same call (?).

I would like for those minutes to change the above list to a human-readable
one, such as

Tom Baker, Emmanuelle Bermes, Felix Sasaki, Bernard Vatant, Gordon Dunsire,
Karen Coyle, Alexander Haffner, András Micsik, Wolfgang Halb, kefo(?),
Marcia Zeng, Jonathan Rees, Joachim Neubert, Ross Singer, Jeff Young,
Michael Panzer, Lars G. Svensson, Guenther Neher.

And this is my best guess. And really could not match any name in the
participants list at
http://www.w3.org/2000/09/dbwg/details?group=44833&public=1 to "kefo" using
any reasonable matching heuristics.

Have mercy on the poor scribe, and pity the data miner of tomorrow trying to
bring together the lists of attendees in all the minutes, join the data with
the above list, and mash it up in a triple store with our FOAF profiles ...
or VIAF ids, if any :)

So please everyone try to use a consistent, non-ambiguous and non-cryptic
IRC pseudo, and I think a table somewhere on the wiki with a pseudo
expansion would be great.

THANKS!

Bernard
