Re: [dxwg] Formally align PROF to DCAT (#808)

Hi Peter,

If you want to add this particular Issue – DCAT alignment in PROF – to next plenary sure. But, as I suggested below, it would be unfeasible for every Issue we have to consider to be raised in plenary.

Hi Nick
Everything eventually comes to the working group for the say-so to go to publication, so it's best to think with the end in mind and ensure that the group as a whole knows about design decisions such as alignment etc and is prepared (with an understanding of the design rationale etc) and feels that it has been given enough opportunity to discuss with the editorial team.
In previous votes for the move to publication with other deliverables we have had the experience of issues coming to the fore late in the day and then needing discussion to clarify and agree before we could move forward.
Given the extremely tight schedule for the profiles vocabulary I think we need to go for solving issues and gaining consensus at the earliest opportunity.
Shall I add this to the plenary meeting agenda for next week?

Hi Karen,

We being the editors of PROF.

I don’t believe we need to bring this to the full group for consensus. Neither DCAT nor Conneg has raised every decision they have made with the full group.

The idea came from me: see that I created it and the initial comment for the Issue is my work with no references to feedback or quotes from elsewhere.
