dr-shorthair has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Clairfy definition of dct:accrualPeriodicity in the context of DCAT ==
The DCMI definition of `dct:accrualPeriodicity` is [1] 

> "The frequency with which items are added to a collection"

However, the DCAT definition is [2] 

> "The frequency at which dataset is published"

which has a rather different meaning. In particular, the rate of addition of data to a time series might be quite different to the frequency of its release or publication. 

This needs to be clarified.
