On the issue of versioning, I dug up an earlier message to the group
(https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2017Jun/0006.html)
where I listed a number of versioning scenarios that I have come across:

*	Evolution: for example, a dataset that is published with
year-to-date information; every week or month, new, recent data is appended
to the existing data. 
*	Replacement: for example, existing data was wrong in some way, and a
new dataset is published that replaces the old data. 
*	Snapshots: for example, continuously changing data like the state of
traffic or weather maps with hourly snapshots.
*	Time series: for example, annual budget data.
*	Conversion: for example, data that is transformed from one
coordinate system to another, or from one set of units to another; similar
to translation of textual resources.
*	Lower/higher granularity: for example, maps in different scales,
images in different resolutions, compression like MP3 versus CD sound, and
summaries of large amounts of data. 

In my mind, we should not discuss why or when to call one dataset a version
of another -- the owner/curator of the dataset will need to decide that
based on local or community rules, and it is really hard to give advice on
that -- but only how to describe the relationships between datasets for
various scenarios.

Maybe helpful as a starting point for the discussion?

Makx.

versioning

The second DCAT sprint will take place next Wednesday 13th February 2100 UTC
till 23:00 UTC. It will replace the normal, regular DCAT subgroup meeting.
This will be a working meeting looking at the outstanding issues (and any
associated concerns raised in external or internal feedback) and will aim to
pull together appropriate conclusions and text to be contributed to the
working draft.  The working method will follow the approach for Sprint 1
(plus any good ideas that people want to bring).

The webex details for the meeting have already been sent out to the WG mail
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Feb/0167.html ).

The agenda, containing useful links to previous discussions and other
material as well as the connection details can be found at
https://www.w3.org/2017/dxwg/wiki/Meetings:DCAT-Telecon2019.02.13  If there
is information that people believe is germane to the discussion then please
feel free to add to the agenda  or by commenting on the issues.
