Thanks Tim. You understood perfectly. We strongly feel that such a dictionary cannot be created by a small group of people, It needs to be open to everyone and to the whole metadata community.

William. I had not heard about SWAG before, thanks for bringing it up. But from what I can find that's still available on the site, SWAG is/was a small group focusing primarily on mapping properties and classes between schemas. It is/was an interesting project, but rather different from meaningfuel.

Perhaps I have misunderstood, but for me the real value of a project
like meaningfuel is to allow the whole metadata community to build and
share a metadata vocabulary (complete with different implementation as
XML element names namespaces and attributes, where appropriate). I think
this is an excellent initiative!
 
As far as I can tell, SWAG is a dictionary of SW terms principally for
use by humans, whose definition is entrusted to a small group of
administrators, and this seems to me to be rather different.
Tim.
