Re: [rda-datafabric-ig] [rda-datafabric-ig] AW: [rda-datafabric-ig] dfig-terms

I agree completely with this 'define for working and later refine' approach. K

I think building a joint vocabulary is urgent as well. However, if we aren’t careful, we could find ourselves caught up in endless discussions trying to get precise definitions (that is, "the perfect is the enemy of the good”). We need to get rough consensus so we can spend time on issues other than definitions.

Fully agree Alan.
This is what we did in DFT I guess: see how terms are being used by various people and finding a way that can be accepted by most.
Now it is Gary’s and Raphael’s case to push this ahead.
I hope that TAB is supporting the idea to involve all chairs. It’s on the agenda for the TAB meeting this week.

Thanks Juha.
We need to have a process in RDA to either accept these definitions or come with new ones if necessary and to map the various other terms.
To me this is an urgent action for building a joint vocabulary. I think that either the metadata groups or the DFT IG (or both) should work on this.
Myself I don’t have strong opinions except that I need to be able to fit the terms that are being used in the discussions.

Hallo Zhu,
is there a definition of the last two terms: spatial and temporal extent.
I think that at least in your community there must be some definitions around.
Correct?

Great Zhu.
Indeed everyone should feel free to add terms to the list.
We need to discuss in RDA and with DFT how to tackle this.

dfig-terms

Dear all,
i just grabbed all terms I could in DFIG documents and comments so far. I am sure that much is missing.
But it may give a first impression. Most of the terms are not well-defined and people are using different definitions.
Please, feel free to add terms and references.
