Dear Editors,

If not too late for any deadlines, here are my belated comments, mainly based on a snapshot dated 16 Feb 2016, but updated to apply to the version dated 9 April 2016. The later version has already addressed some of my concerns.

They are mainly minor to improve readability, rather than towards the content, which seems very good and clear. And I apologise for not speaking Português!

Hope this will help, best wishes, Chris

Whole document:

1. Please decide whether 'Best Practices' or 'best practices' is the preferred text and be consistent.

2. Please spell 'license' as 'licence'. Generally in British English, a 'c' denotes the thing and 's' denotes the action.
As in 'We practise Best Practice, and license people by issuing a licence'. I prefer this subtle consistency. I recognise that things may be different in the Americas.

Specific sections:

3. Sect 4, Para 2: 'interested in' not 'interested on'.

4. BP2: 'contact point for' not 'contact point of'.

5. BP4: Possible Approach how about adding a link to the RDF Data Cube?

6. BP7, Example 7: 'csvCompletenessMetric' not 'csvComplitenessMetric'.

7. BP12: Please add to the end of the 'Possible Approach' para: 'but the other remains unchanged.' to increase emphasis.

8. BP13: In the 'Why' para, consider adding 'open', 'well documented', 'RAND', etc to 'non-proprietary'.

9. Sect 8.9: please also clarify 'vocabularies' versus 'code lists' as code lists are used in BP16. The list in the second para. Does not explain the generally agreed distinctions.

10. BP15: please add 'WMO' to the list of example standard organizations. WHO? ICAO?

11. BP18, Example 18: 'bus driver' not 'bus''driver' is fine.

12. BP21: please put 'scraping' into quotes ''scraping'', as it implies a specialised, technical meaning, not general, of the word.

13. BP28: 'Assess dataset Web context' is better than 'Assess dataset coverage'. Coverage could be confused with the specialised geospatial meaning. Change over paras. 'Scope' may be a useful word.

14. BP28, Example 28: Could you use an example without mentions 'triples' - a term requiring specialised knowledge or too implementation specific.

15. BP29, Example 29: What is a 'timegate'? Star Trek?

16. Sect 10: diagram still much too small when printed.
