Subject: RE: [election-services] Twitter and Elections / Action Groups / Partyapparatus and Open Sourced Democracy

We now have the EML 530 statistics for this purpose.
Please let me know if you need any changes for that - because its a new message in V6!
This is the format that CA used - so it has been field tested - and Sven confirmed for me that it covers off Belgiums current use pattern.
Thanks, DW

Is this within-scope for EML or would it require another project of
this TC? One of the problems we've found in academic endeavors (and
I'm certain the CA SoS faced this in aggregating results for their EML
feed) is that frequently the database reports produced by EMS' are
entirely structured for presentation (and typically for PDF... which
is very hard to do things with!) instead of analysis. best, Joe
