Re: BP Guidelines

Dear all,

I'm late in the game, but since Bernadette called for further discussion at the last call...

About the guidelines: these are very fine. I would just emphasize too much on a strict classification of generic versus specific for now: a best practice needs to be as precise as possible. Categorizing best practices in advance along that axis seems a bit unnecessary/dangerous now (see the question marks as in "Usage information (about resources ?)"). What is certainly useful is to clarify the object of the best practice (vocabularies, datasets) in the best practice itself.

Which leads to a couple of other editorial remarks:
- the datasets BPs are sometimes using the word "data". I know it's fine, but better make the word use as stable as possible!
- the definition of "resource" appears 3 times.
- you can also make the text more efficient by removing the first "The Best Practices that apply to Resources are called General Best Practices." (which has its own bullet later).

I have some comments on the relevant of some links between Requirements and BP (for example R-FormatOpen and R-VocabOpen are not exactly the same "open" and thus GBP3 is not a match for both). But before that perhaps it's better to all agree on the requirements first (it could well be that R-FormatOpen and R-VocabOpen have actually the same "open", but their description is not precise).

And finally the big question, as I've tried to organize our pointers for the data quality work and realized we have two BP pages: what is the relation between this newly created BP page
and the previous one created after the F2F meeting

Kind regards,
