I agree with the addition of the DAV:sourcelabel element.

But I object to the use of the xlink:href attribute, instead of the
standard WebDAV DAV:href element.  I believe it is significantly more
important to maintain consistency within the WebDAV standard than it
is to be consistent with some non-WebDAV standard such as xlink.  In
particular, this breaks functionality such as is provided by the
DAV:expand-property report defined in RFC-3253, which is based on the
existence of DAV:href nodes in property values.

Cheers,
Geoff

It sounds like we're converging on a proposal that looks much like Julian's
at the bottom of the following posting...

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2001OctDec/0119.html


I have one other proposal to make.  It's based on the above proposal, but
adjusts it a bit so that we have room to
add other structured data to the source tag later if we want.   It just
creates a tag (sourcelabel) to envelop the optional? natural
language description of the source.


   <D:prop xmlns:D="DAV:" xmlns:F="http://www.foocorp.com/Project/">
     <D:source-set>
          <D:source xlink:href="http://foo.bar/src/main.c"
xlink:role="UriDescribingTheRole">
             <D:sourcelabel xml:lang="en">source file</D:sourcelabel>
          </D:source>
          <D:source xlink:href="http://foo.bar/src/main.lib"
xlink:role="UriDescribingTheRole">
             <D:sourcelabel xml:lang="en">library file</D:sourcelabel>
          </D:source>
          <D:source xlink:href="http://foo.bar/src/makefile"
xlink:role="UriDescribingTheRole">
             <D:sourcelabel xml:lang="en">makefile</D:sourcelabel>
          </D:source>
     </D:source-set>
   </D:prop>


Also please comment on how you'd express the situation where a single
source URL has multiple roles.

Thanks :-)
