Dear ontolex community,

    unfortunately, due to family issues, I have not been able to attend
the Ontolex workshop collocated with the LDK conference in Galway.

The conference itself was great. Thanks to John, Jorge, Christian,
Sebastian and Paul for getting it organized!

Several people have reported to me the topics discussed at ontolex workshop

It is clear from the reports that there is a significant interest in
continuing the work on the model and in particular there seems to be a
lot of interest on working out how the ontolex model can be used to
model lexicographic resources.

As this seems to be of interest to the community, I propose we start
looking into this. I am happy to lead this if I get a little help from
the community, in particular from UPM (Jorge/Julia).

I would like to propose two concrete actions:

1) I propose that in order to have a concrete goal, we start working on
a document that summarizes best practices for modelling lexicographic
resources, building on but also extending the current ontolex vocabulary
as needed. The document could be example-based along the lines of the
spec we have issued so far and would allow us to work in an agile and
cooperative way, agreeing on design issues and choices as we collaborate
on writing the best practices and guidelines. Once the guidelines are
written, we can then decide whether we lift some of the proposed
vocabulary elements or modelling solutions into the status of a new
module or we simply keep the best practices as an informal document.

2) I propose we start again with our regular telcos to foster discussion
and progress. As the Thursday slot was not very popular, I propose we
move back to our original Friday 4 pm (CET) slot.

Let me know what you think.

Kind regards,
