Dear all,

although, as Shakespeare, said "a rose by any other name would smell as 
sweet", I think that names matter. I think that keeping 'lemon' (or a 
variant) would suggest that the work we are doing is basically a follow-on 
of the Lemon initiative, which, at the time the group has been 
established, was not the case, at least in my understanding. Hence, I 
think that keeping the original 'ontolex' name is a better option. 

I'm unable to attend the call this evening, sorry about that.

Re: ontolex telco tomorrow 15:00 CET

Hi all,

I apologise I will also not be able to attend as I am travelling today. I 
wanted to make a quick couple of points about the naming of the model.

Firstly, the model is not drastically new in fact in terms of URIs 15 of 
the properties are exactly the same as they are in the original lemon core 
where as only 9 are new introductions, and 4 are not carried over from the 
ontolex core (although these should be included in modules).

Also, I am here at RANLP and lemon has been mentioned in several talks 
including one of the keynotes, at tutorials and many times in the NLP&LOD 
workshop. Many people who I talked to about the naming of the model seemed 
not keen accept a change of name.

For these two reasons I feel that we really should to keep lemon in the 
name but would be happy with Lemon2 or W3C-Lemon as a name

Dear all,

I won't be able to join the telco as I have a meeting in another town.
As for the name of the model, the last 2 suggestions proposed by Phillipp 
and Aldo: lemon2, and lemon-W3C could be Ok, though I'm more inclined to 
the first one, lemon2. Exactly for the reasons given by Philipp.

I know that Elena & Jorge will attend the telco, so they'll tell me about 
the commitments and the modules..
Best regards

Dear all,

   this is a gentle reminder that we will have our regular ontolex telco 
tomorrow Friday at the regular time.

See access details here: 

The agenda from my side is as follows:

1) Modules: decide which modules need to be developed and which use cases 
will drive them, fix responsibles for module development
2) Name of the model: discuss different points of view
3) Linking: what to link to

I look forward to talking to you all on Friday.

Best regards,
