Subject: Re: [emergency-have] HAVE 2.0 - Data Dictionary

Elysa, Darrell, let me just be sure I understand your objective here. 

The potential social / healthcare benefit is not lost on me so you have no selling to do on that score. I read "The Hot Zone" years ago. Ebola is ample justification for swift action. 

If I understand what you want to do, your goal is to approve and publish a Committee Spec Draft of the EDXL-HAVE Data Dictionary as fast as possible so that people have a public version of this refined spec to apply to the Ebola outbreak. 

- Is this a brand new work product? Looking at http://docs.oasis-open.org/emergency/edxl-have/ I don't find anything comparable so I am guessing it is. 

- Do you simply want to get it online as an approved CSD of some kind (details we need to work out) or do you also want to move it forward into public review? 

Thanks for your answers. I'm just trying to sort out in my mind how we can best accomplish this.

Chet - as a consideration we can also generate a detailed and interactive HTML version of the schema. Here is an example that I generated from our working draft: http://oasis-edxl-have-v2.0-wd.s3.amazonaws.com/edxl-have-v2.0-wd.html

Please review this process for an auto-generated data dictionary.  We are working diligently to get a PR draft out for HAVE given the interest due to the Ebola situation.  This method would save us time as well as minimize/eliminate the common mistakes made when it is done manually.

Subject: [emergency-have] HAVE 2.0 - Data Dictionary


Folks - as we discussed in the EDXL-HAVE SC meeting this afternoon we would like to use a different format for the Data Dictionary section of the standards document.


I have CC'ed Chet Ensign from the TC Admin as per Elysa's recommendation. 


The approach that I recommend and that we agreed upon was to use an auto-generated document that is driven from the data in our XML Schema. This would mean that there should be no errors (barring a software glitch in OxygenXML) but there are a couple of issues to consider:


1. I can't generate a Word-compatible version so we can't cut and paste the content into the .docx standard file. I proposed that we would include the full PDF (sample attached) as an appendix and reference it in the Data Dictionary. This would need approval from the TC Admin for the format. 


2. There may be come formatting issues. If you look at the attached PDF, there are a few images that go beyond the page (e.g. see page 8). We can make a fully browse-able website version available too though - it doesn't have that problem. 


Here is a screenshot comparing a draft (ignore the highlights on the left side please) with the normal table and the generated XML Schema documentation on the right. I believe all of the fields and information that we need is there and it includes a pretty good diagram.

We'll have the ERM diagram as well (thanks to Patti!) and the rest is coming along well.


Thanks a ton for the great meeting. I'll send out the draft minutes in a moment.
