Statement of Dublin Core "grammar" (Tom Baker) Time: 20 min Tom: Everyone should re-read the currently posted version of the one-page grammar statement and compare it with the 2002-10-06 version. The 2002-10-06 version includes an Issues list at the end that would of course be deleted from the statement if we approve it. I am not expecting we will need alot of time in the meeting for discussion; any additional wordsmithing we may want to do should be outside of the meeting time. Required reading: -- Revised version of Grammar, 2002-10-06 http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind0210&L=dc-usage&T=0&O=A&P=2314 -- Legacy version of Grammar, 2002-07-13 http://dublincore.org/usage/documents/2002/07/13/mission/ 2. Usage Board Process (Stuart Sutton) Time: 40 min Stuart: The latest version (UB-Process-Rev2.html) has additional revisions from the last circulated version (UB-Process-Rev1.html). One change was global--the original used the word "qualifier" and "qualification" of terms throughout which I changed to "refinement" in keeping with current practice. I also removed a number of textual references to the notion of domain-specific stuff where such references no longer appear relevant. With the exception of the global change to"refinement", all others have been marked with a strike through so they are clearly visible. Unfortunately, the additions of new text is in color and, therefore, lost when we do printouts. Obviously, the major change is in the status of decisions (recommended, conforming etc.) and in the addition of part on application profiles. Also: I am assuming that our discussion led by Diane on documentation and the official status of documents other than recommendations, conforming etc. (including this process document) may well lead to additional textual changes in the process document. Diane will lead a discussion of her draft "DCMI Documentation and Documentation Maintenance Issues", which is on the agenda for discussion at the Advisory Board meeting in Florence. The draft draws lessons from the experience of managing documentation in the Usage Board and proposes that DCMI generalize some of the Usage Board methods and terminology for use by DCMI more generally. Stuart and Diane question whether we really need to have the new status "Reviewed" for application profiles -- perhaps "Registered", used for Encoding Schemes, could serve here as well.

Registration of Encoding Schemes (Traugott Koch) Time: 30 min Traugott: Text still needs to be changed on pages (action is on Harry). Part of the update should be several minor issues I mentioned in the last letter to the list some of which we did not have the time to deal with in Bath. We should aim at getting closure on the Guidelines in Florence. As for the guidelines: apart from adding links to the registry, no further changes should be needed before starting the registry.

Structured Values, or "DCSVs" (Andy Powell) Time: 60 mins Discussion should include the following: -- summarise the current status of existing 'structured values' -- agree (in principle) to any required changes to current documents -- agree a way of actioning any agreed changes -- agree some scope for what we mean by 'structured value' - e.g. is a value containing MathML markup a structured value? -- agree associated rules/guidelines -- agree general policy for acceptance of new 'structured' values Required reading: -- General issues: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind0204&L=dc-usage&O=A&P=2547 -- Journal Article Bibliographic Citation DCSV (Citation Working Group) http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2002/05/citdcsv.html -- DCMI Agent Detail, structured values for CCP elements (Rebecca Guenther) http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind0204&L=dc-agents&F=&S=&P=169 Background reading: -- http://dublincore.org/documents/2000/07/28/dcmi-dcsv/ -- http://dublincore.org/documents/1999/04/30/labelled-values-syntax/ -- http://dublincore.org/documents/2000/07/28/dcmi-point/ -- http://dublincore.org/documents/2000/07/28/dcmi-period/ -- http://dublincore.org/documents/2000/07/28/dcmi-box/ 5. Libraries profile (Rebecca Guenther) Time: 60 min maximum Rebecca: We've already discussed this before. I'm taking the controversial things out, so I don't think it would take too long. Required reading: -- Libraries profile (Rebecca Guenther) http://dublincore.org/documents/2002/09/24/library-application-profile/ -- DCMI Usage Board Review of Application Profiles (see point 2 above) 6.

Usage Board documentation and Web pages (Tom Baker) 9. Usage Board role vis-a-vis schema representations of DCMI terms (Roland Schwaenzl) 10. Other issues -- According to the term declaration, W3CDTF and Period only apply to Date, not any of the Date refinements. Should they apply to Date AND all its refinements (both recommended and conforming)? -- In response to a question from Chris Croome on 7 August, there were helpful postings from Andy Powell and Jon Hanna, after which Chris asked whether we have any way to capture and make available clarifications of this kind. http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind0208&L=dc-general&T=0&O=A&P=2886 Where could we put such information? How would this relate to the User Guide activity? REFERENCES  http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/dc-usage.html  http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/
