Welcome to the Interest Group!
Being an interest group means we’re no longer focused on specific tasks/goals
If we identify specific work/projects that need to be done, we would spin off a task force.
The Identifiers project is a candidate for a task force.
Ontology License updates:
Ralph: Should VIVO have its own ontology? Or bring in the best pieces and then licensing become clear cut??
Mike: Table it for now. May be 2 to 5 year idea.
May be a good topic for the conference panel? Full spectrum -- reuse nothing, reuse everything (no ontology)
Mike: Work is to identify the license of each ontology.
Marijane: We cannot license the way we want if there is no existing license. +1
Violeta: Dublin Core metadata is responsible for BIBO. They have not responded yet for my questions.
Mike: We are using many ontologies. If one of them has restrictive license (and we are using a few terms), we could get rid of that ontology.
Mike: RDA report raised good points regarding what PID are and what kinds of them there are, all are mentioned in the document.
Mike: If we have relationship with bibo group, we may work together to update bibo ontology.
Data issues: How much software should help the data managers. We have annotations that help software.
We mention in ontology that an entity is a string (and perhaps a language tag), and in annotation we suggest that it should be edited with an HTML editor. Graham considers annotations as suggestions.
Ontology management issues: Current process allows a committer and an ontologist to approve a domain ontology pull request. Seems thin.
We are operating on good faith. Other ontologists should be brought in. Issues should be discussed with the interest group.
Brian: We should finish the change process we drafted.
Mike: Yes. We have scoring of issues and we have a draft process. Need to socialize the process with the rest of the community, resulting in a recorded process.
Decision: cancel the pull request by closing it
Close the pull request
Move the change process forward
