Hi Andy,

As you'll be looking at the DCMI Namespace Policy, let me 
mention that, as things stand, the IPTC is highly unlikely 
to be using the DC namespaces for the corresponding containers.
The main reason is the existing DCMI Namespace Policy, which 
makes use of different namespaces for different elements.  We 
are unwilling to require our implementors to:

-  declare two namespaces for DC elements,

-  remember which DC element belongs to which namespace.

Incidentally, we also disagree with the approach of placing 
a version number in the namespace URI.  This alone would 
probably be a sufficient reason for us not to use the DC 
namespaces, as it is highly likely to lead a repetition of 
the above problem.

Misha Wolf
Chair, IPTC News Metadata Framework WG

Subject: Agenda for DC Architecture meeting in Madrid

We have a DC Architecture WG meeting scheduled during the Madrid 
conference.  This is split between two slots as follows:

Monday Sept 12

Slot 1: 15.30 - 17.00
Slot 2: 17.30 - 19.00

Location: Seminar Room 4.1.E01.

I suggest we use slot 1 for a general WG meeting:

1 Review of the year

2 Discussion about revising the "DCMI Namespace Policy" recommendation

3 Discussion about revising the "Guidelines for encoding DC in XML"
   recommendation

4 Summary of relevent W3C activities (GRDDL and RDF in XHTML) (*)

5 Workplan for next year

(*) Note that I haven't found a speaker for this item yet!

I'm hoping that papers for items 2 and 3 will be sent round by email
prior 
to the meeting.

I propose to use slot 2 for a meeting of the DC RDF Taskforce.  The 
taskforce has only recently started work, but is making some progress. 
The meeting will be open to non-taskforce members, but attendees should 
expect a very detailed level of discussion about the DCMI Abstract
Model, 
RDF, RDFS, OWL, etc.

Andy
