The DCAT group met this evening.

Key items are


1.      Request to the DXWG plenary to approve use-case https://¯github.com/¯w3c/¯dxwg/¯issues/¯256 for consideration

2.      Long discussion on https://¯github.com/¯w3c/¯dxwg/¯issues/¯259 ‘How to express distributions provided as compressed files’ and related issues. Conclusions:

a.      It is important to know what’s inside a zip file – compression is trivial

b.      If the content is simple then the “+zip” strategy on the media-type designator is OK

c.      If the content is complex, but has a well known/standard structure, then consider dct:conformsTo

d.      If the content is complex but non-standard, then another solution will be required

e.      This is a potential rabbit hole, too many layers is impractical

However, after the call I noticed that the mailing list feedback from Nuno Freire https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-comments/2018Apr/0001.html might be relevant since it raises a possible mechanism for a ‘manifest’.
