Hi Biplav

So, I can update section Source data [1] from here [2], right?




On Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 9:22 AM, Biplav Srivastava <> 


I have made changes to the "Source Data" section. The aim of the section 
is to list issues someone publishing data may face and provide practical 
guidelines. It turns out that listing issues is simple (and quite general) 
but resolving them is very context and government dependent. So a 
point-by-point response to issues is not practical. 

With the current content, I have improved the text listing issues. I have 
also modified/ added to the general guidelines Ghislain had kindly added 
(thanks!). Especially on being privacy aware (#8). 

Please review.

Hi Boris, 
I don't think you should remove the sections.  I think we should still put 
a small section in to specify why these sections are relevant and need to 
be considered [by someone publishing and/or consuming LOD].  We just don't 
have a lot of detailed guidance to offer at this time.  This is just my

Hi Bernadette

So, for FPWD purposes I'm going to remove those sections, ok?
I'll do it tonight.

We've briefly discussed in the WG the that there are a couple parts of the

Dear Bernadette and others, 

I have reviewed the section on Stability of the BP document, and I believe 
it is not ready for prime time. 

Honestly, I would recommend dropping this section or replacing it by a 
fairly generic piece of text that only raises stability as a concern (one 
or two paragraphs), and points to useful references (further reading). I'm 
not an expert on the topic, but I am willing to volunteer to produce this, 
if the group agrees this is the way to go. 

There is a lot of work on long-term data preservation and the "properties" 
described in the text (section 6.3 are quite confusing and do not seem 
focused). This is not a simple issue, see, e.g. (a lot of initiatives are 
listed including standards on long-term data preservation): 

Best regards, 
Joăo Paulo

Thanks Michael, Bernadette 

Since Anne and Ron are not available, any volunteer to take care of 
section 13. Stability? Biplav? Joao Paulo?

Hi Boris, 
Thanks for circulating.  A couple WG members in yesterday's telecon agreed 
to do a thorough review and comment.  This included Biplav and Joao Paulo. 

Note: We should update assignments to Anne and Ron who are no longer 
involved in the WG AFAIK.

Dear all

Apologies for missing yesterday telecon's ... and for not sending my 
regrets in advance.

Regarding the BP document, I was working with the BP document including 
some comments from outside, e.g, Olaf, but I think it's time to try to 
finalize this first version. We can make the rest of improvements later on 

The current version is here [1]. 

Currently, there are some sections to review, so I would suggest the 
following section and reviewers: 
- Background - Bernadette 
- Linked Open Data Lifecycle -  Boris & Solve the current issue (ISSUE-15) 

- Vocabulary Selection - Boris/Ghis 
- URI Construction - John ERickson/Boris 
- 6. URI Policy for Persistence - Bernadette/John Erickson 
- 8. Specifying an appropiate License - Bernadette 
- 9. Security and hosting -  Michael Pendleton 
- 10. Publishers "Social Contract" -  Bernadette 
- 11. Pragmatic Provenance -  John Erickson 
- 12. Versioning -  John Erickson 
- 13. Stability -  Anne Washington (GMU), Ron Reck 
- 14. Source Data -  Biplav 

Reviewers would have one week to review their section, then we'll have 
another week to fix the document. I'll be the one to be doing the whole 
edition, and Bernadette can help me identifying possible minor issues. 
More help is appreciated.
In summary after two weeks we should have a preliminary stable version of 
the document, so we can publish as a FPWD .... 
Then, we can continue with the weekly updates and improvements. 

What do you think?
