RE: OWL-Time: i18n comments?

How about this slight re-working:

As astronomically based calendars try to fit inconvenient durations into a usable regular system of counting cycles, 'intercalations' are often used to re-align the calendar's repeating patterns with astronomical events. These intercalations may be of different durations depending on the calendar, such as leap seconds, leap days, or even a group of days. Leap days are explicit and leap seconds implicit in the Gregorian calendar, which underlies the model used in several classes in OWL-Time. A general treatment of intercalations is beyond the scope of this ontology.

Not sure I agree. This ontology *accepts* the implicit intercalations in the Gregorian calendar (as they are inherited from ISO 8601 via XML Schema and OWL2), but does not really *deal with* them.

Simon,

Perhaps add one further sentence:

“This ontology only deals with the implicit intercalations in the Gregorian calendar.”  ?

Simon,

I did write a paragraph to be added somewhere. Leap seconds made it, and attached is the Intercalation email with a paragraph is attached.

John Cowan did say that his comments were not about I18n, and were his personal ones.

Intercalation para here in case attachment gets mangled. I am at home and jumping through Office VPN hoops.

Chris

I propose to add this paragraph after the fourth in section 3.2:
"As astronomically based calendars try to fit inconvenient durations into a usuable regular system of counting cycles, 'intercalations' are often used to re-align the calendar's repeating patterns with astronomical events. These intercalations may be of different durations depending on the calendar, such as leap seconds, leap days, or even a group of days."
