Dear Kerry, Simon, all,

I think that Simon is keeping ssn-sosa.ttl in line with the latest
discussions in this mailing list, see the comments in the related pull
request that has been merged two days ago:
https://github.com/w3c/sdw/pull/543

I also understand Kerry's point, in that the pull requests and their
merging is not always discussed in this mailing list and approved by the
entire subgroup.


On the other hand, the other alignments that Simon proposed are in my
humble opinion very be valuable, and should be mentioned as part of a
non-normative section in the REC?


Anyways, the point I want to make here is that the SSN subgroup really
needs to use a strict methodology for the discussion and integration of
terms one by one from the old ssn into ssnx, sosa and the new ssn.

I suggested a clear methodology in this commit:
https://github.com/w3c/sdw/pull/536/commits/aa6dc76d0c653f5ed515b52506d64bf8184e16f5


Armin's proposal to create a wiki page for each integration issue, where we
can discuss the pro and  cons of several options, and agree on a vote, is
also a great way to achieve this. I will include the role of discussing the
options in the wiki in this methodology.
See https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Semantic_Sensor_Network_Ontology

So I strongly encourage Armin to complete the reviewing process of
https://github.com/w3c/sdw/pull/536 . If this pull request is merged, it
could provide us with fresh new ssnx, ssn, sosa documents. We could
progressively fill these documents with the definition of a new term every
time the group has reached an agreement.

Kind regards,
Maxime Lefrançois
