Re: ISSUE-5 (Separation of examples): Delivery of the SSN XG ontology and of examples in separate files

The ontology version sent to the mailing list in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xg-ssn/2010Apr/0012.html 
  was sent, and I think clearly labelled, as part of the discussion  
(issue 4) on how we might model measurement capabilities.  It was  
never sent as a 'version' of the ontology.  It should be seen as an  
artefact of our discussions on the modelling options, and to the last  
of my knowledge was only ever available through pages that labelled it  
as such.

I of course agree that examples of the ontologies use and versions of  
the ontology should be clearly labelled in our wiki pages.

There is a version of the ontology that is the result of the groups  
discussion on measurement capabilities.  I hadn't sent it to the group  
because I wanted to start correctly commenting/annotating/referencing  
the ontology; however, there hasn't been a decision yet on how to do  

In any event, because of the apparent potential confusion, I have now  
sent the ontology that includes the results of all our discussion up  
to and including measurement capabilities.  Once there is agreement on  
how to do it, we can start to build the wiki pages of definitions and  
explanations and reference this to and from the ontology.  I guess  
issue 7 will be part of this process.
