Minutes of Meeting

1. Approval of agenda

2. Approval of MoM from last meeting

3. URI´s for templates
The topic has been discussed in the P8IWG. Examples are wanted, and the JORD Id spec should be followed. The examples shared by Victor are still valid.

It is a challenge that parts of the full set of 15926 templates are being changed and edited. A solution is to export the approved set of templates, and leave the others out. This is also possible to do technically. However, the set needs to update namespace in the future. It is a challenge that it is not fully Part 8 compliant. The current export works, but returns all templates independently of status. We will aim to export only approved templates, that are not to be further edited. Template uri´s and role uri´s should be updated and made compliant with the JORD ID spec and use PCA namespace. There is a need for clarification on Part 8 and templates from PCA. Lillian will investigate. The current 15926 set uses e.g. Dublin Core for metadata, which is currently not official approved and a part of current Part 8 version.

A discussion about Part 6 and Part 8 is required. Topic in forum will be set up. Here we will collect comments as input for required editions, and basis for an agreement for how we should proceed. We want to avoid development of software that needs to be changed in the near future.

4. Revisions of template proposal during the review period
Revisions during review are acceptable. Comments and corrections will be dealt with when received.

5. Follow-up and status of review of templates
Review of batch #3 of templates continues in the forum. The received comments will be addressed there, and this might also lead to new discussions. We prepare for a new batch of templates for review, and it has been agreed that this can be done in parallell with completion of #3.

6. A.O.B.
There is a need to discuss patterns. This includes TIPs and TSPs. A discussion should be started in the forum. This will form the basis for further discussion at the next MMT meeting, where this topic should be included as an agenda item.

Starting in June, Lillian will be on leave from PCA for a longer period. She will be back in 2015. More information about replacement to follow.
