Beginning Guidance deliverable


As you may have understood from the previous report from F2F3, a major
goal was to clarify the scope and contents of the Guidance document and
create the necessary structure around the work so that we can begin to
prepare a first public working draft.

Decisions and information were taken down during the meeting in a G-Doc:

Actual work on the Guidance deliverable will probably be moved elsewhere
as this G-Doc is quite sketchy, but I wish to point out that there are
key sections on the Project Plan [1] and a beginning of an outline for
the document [2].

At the meeting, Karen, Rob and Antoine volunteered to be editors on the
document. Other editors are welcome, but do remember that everyone can

We need to have a full working group discussion of profileDesc, [3]
which has so far been primarily the work of Rob and Nick, and make any
changes necessary so that it reflects the consensus of the entire group.
The current proposal is a first draft that has been offered to the group
for discussion and modification.

Note that we have not yet concluded how to integrate the guidance aspect
of the deliverable and the profileDesc ontology. The complication is
that the guidance document may read much like "best practices" but
profileDesc is an ontology. Tying them together in a recommendation
creates a dependency for maintenance that could be problematic. While
one could anticipate that profileDesc may be updated in the future after
additional experience, the more general guidance content of the document
may not need to change. Peter and I are soliciting advice from folks
with more W3C experience to try to discover the best solution.
