I agree with Jeremy’s proposal to align the best practices of the SDWBP with the DWBP, including the removal of some of ours because they’re well described in the DWBP now.

In addition to 2)… I’d like to put the best practices in the SDWBP in the same order as the best practices in the DWBP. This would make it easier to read the two docs together.

But I don’t necessarily agree with the consolidation i.e. merging some of our BPs. I see how they could be grouped, but on the other hand they are separated out now, and seem to be nice chucks of information on their own. If we merge them, this could mean stripping out useful text, or keeping it but ending up with one long BP where we now have three or four.

We did receive some feedback on our FPWD regarding the structure of the document and its length, I plan to look those up. They may give us some direction.

It’s a puzzle…

Onderwerp: Proposals for consolidating SDW best practices and aligning with DWBP

All- in readiness for discussion at this week's SDW BP call, I've prepared some homework for you all.

We editors have been discussing how to make the SDW BP document more useful to readers.

Two of the key approaches are:
1. make it shorter (by consolidating best practices)
2. align with the (excellent) work from DWBP [1]; don't repeat, extend where we have 'spatial specific' concerns.

(we'll also be using the narrative to provide context to a set of examples and working on the introductory material ... )

We editors haven't yet concluded the best approach; recognising that consolidation makes things shorter (and easier to consume) but at the risk of loosing valuable detail.

I've created a proposal for consolidation / alignment on the SDW wiki [2]

This is fairly brutal. Poised for discussion. What do you think!

Jeremy
