ISSUE-9 (Ontology status after the closure of the XG): Define if and how changes to the XG ontology should be managed after the XG is finished 

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/track/issues/9

Raised by: Laurent Lefort
On product: 

The discussion with the Team on Action-30 "Define the final place where the XG ontology will be delivered" http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/track/actions/30/edit has a corollary issue: will there be some maintenance actions required after September 2010, when the XG will be closed?

The current (normal) expectation with XGs (see http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/procedures) is that when they close, they are done (except for a public mailing list that may stay open). 

Is the SSN XG ontology expected to change after the end of the XG? If so, what would be the decision policy for making changes? who would own the resource? where do people send comments? 

Will there be some projects (or a community) willing to exploit (and eventually maintain or upgrade) the XG results for a period of six months or more?  


Note: it is VERY IMPORTANT to record the best we can the conclusions we will reach for the latter issue and to include them in the XG report.

Note (reminder): the Incubator concept includes an option that has the potential to efficiently transition Incubator Group (XG) work to form a new (Recommendation Track) Working Group http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/REC-track.html
