Hi, Folks-

Based on a discussion Ivan, Tzviya, Madi and I had, I have updated the early draft of the "Metadata Task Force Report" on GitHub [1].

The only changes are:

--Added an Overview section at the beginning.

--Added a placeholder for a section in which we will provide brief explanations of publishing industry terms and concepts that might not be familiar to W3C folks ("ONIX," etc.), linking to fuller explanations in a glossary at the end of the document and also to relevant web resources.

Currently, the balance of that report is unchanged: a summary of what was concluded in the interviews Madi and I did, followed by an appendix consisting of Madi's report and my reports of the individual interviews that I did.


Although we intend this to be the starting point for the document we will ultimately provide to the W3C, it is likely to be changed significantly.

This is intended to be a vehicle for discussion, in three contexts:

--Discussion of issues on the list. Please keep those issues granular: start a new thread with a new subject line when there is a new topic, prefixed by [METADATA].

--Continual update of the document in GitHub as appropriate.

--Discussion at the F2F at TPAC.

Please take a look and comment. Thanks!

--Bill Kasdorf
