Dear TD members,

in yesterday's web meeting, I presented for the plugfest the TD section of the current practice document [1] that tries to reflect the new inputs of the Nice f2f meeting. I would also like to give a short introduction to the members who were not able to attend yesterday's web meeting:

The "Quick Start: TD Samples" section gives a quick introduction about the usage of the TD [2]. Example 1 shows the core idea of the TD. There, you can already see some simplifications in the structure of the TD compared to the version that was used for the Nice and Sapporo plugfest. This is the case for the "metadata" field which is not used anymore (name, encoding, protocol is now used on the 1st level) and this is also true for the "interactions" field (properties, actions, and events are now used directly).

Example 2 gives a sample how you are able to extend additional semantics, e.g., to properties by integrating other context in the TD.

Example 3 shows a more advanced TD that uses multiple protocols, encodings, interactions, and some security information (JWT).

Please comment on the new TD structure. Any feedback is welcome.

Still, what has not been addressed yet are the opportunity to define type restrictions (e.g., define a range of numbers) or define more complex data types, e.g., of a property.

Here, also, any ideas are welcome.

Best wishes
