smrgeoinfo has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== dcat:Resource description edits, section 5.1 ==
Current text states:
"dcat:Catalog represents a catalog, which is a dataset in which each individual item is a metadata record "
and in the next paragraph:
"dcat:Resource represents an individual item in a catalog."

This seems likely to confuse a careful reader (is a dcat:Resource a metadata record?).  suggested edit for dcat:Resource

_dcat:Resource represents a dataset or data service described by a metadata record in a catalog. This class is not intended to be used directly, but is the parent class of dcat:Dataset, dcat:DataService, and dcat:Catalog (as a subclass of dcat:Dataset). Member items in a catalog should describe a dataset or data service, a sub-class of these, or a sub-class of dcat:Resource defined in a DCAT profile or other DCAT application. dcat:Resource is effectively an extension point for defining a catalog of any kind of resource._
