  • GSoC update - looks like all the students were accepted

Relationship and Usage

  • Review of one line descriptions for added relationship/usage types to use case analysis
    • FileAdded, FileDeleted, FileModified - relationship is with the Patch File
    • FileType - should file type for patch
    • Usage type should be version
      • Patch should be patches
      • Package should be packages
  • Review of consolidated spreadsheet
    • For RDF, relationshipType_ and usageType_, where as tag/value will be treated as a keyword without the relationshipType_ and usageType_
    • Discussion on use of "By" - could be confusing with the tool that produces a file rather than the source file - decided to go with generatedFrom and generates
    • Discussion on modified, modifiedBy, and revisionOf
      • Are they all needed?
        • question on revisionOf
        • descendant and ancestor are more specific forms of varientOf
        • descendant and ancestor are needed for the Cisco use cases
        • agreed to keep all for now
    • See updated spreadsheet from the email list for results so far
