Hi all,

During the F2F at Santa Clara, we had a lot of discussions about the scope
[1] and the organization of the best practices document, and some important
decisions were made [2], including:

- All of our best practices will be in one document, because it is easier
for readers/implementers to understand and easier for editors/contributors
to manage.

- Each best practice will be defined according to a specific structure.
During TPAC, Phil proposed a template structure [6].

- Our scoping criteria [1], i.e., requirements and best practices should be
defined considering the following criteria :
        - Is it unique to publishing data on the Web?
        - Does it encourage reuse or publication of data on the Web?
        - Is it testable? In what way?

It is really important to keep these information in mind during best
practices definition.

We also had an agreement abou the organization of the best practices
document [3] and some contributors were defined [4].

Finally, in order to facilitate the edition of the document, new wiki pages
were created for each one of the proposed sections [4]. In general, each
section should have a general description about the theme (ex: Data
vocabularies, Data formats...), followed by one or more best practices. It
is also important to give examples to illustrate the best practices.
Documents that were previously created should be adapted in order to be
included in the BP document.

Contributors are free to use the new wiki pages or to directly edit the
draft available on github [5]. We kindly ask you to send an email to the
group or to the editors when a new update is made.

kind regards,
Bernadette, Caroline and Newton
