Subject: RE: [emergency-msg] Meeting Next Week?


I'm available. I spent some time last week trying to synch the matrix
with the schema, but it's slow going. I guess that's why I like to do
the schema last.

Subject: [emergency-msg] Meeting Next Week?

Hi Folks,

We should have a meeting next week to get back in synch after the 
holidays. The TC , the IF SC and the Adoption SC are all meeting next 
Tuesday morning, so it would be crowded to squeeze our meeting into 
that set of timeslots, plus we need to include Karen and Renato, if 
he can manage it.

So I suggest scheduling our next meeting for
Thursday Jan 11 at 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. EST.

If that doesn't work for you, please pipe up here and we can discuss it.

If we don't hear from anyone with conflicts for this, I would 
appreciate it if Tim could schedule it for us.

Also, I would appreciate it if anyone has a recollection of any other 
message elements where the ContactInformation package needs to be 
added other than the top level Resource Message unit for each message 
type and in the ResponsibleParty in OwnershipInformation.

In the top level I used the form Contact:ContactInformation but I am 
wondering if it should just be ContactInformation: char since we 
don't have a message element: Contact?

I hesitated to call it ContactRole, (the previous name for the 
relationship between the top level unit and the Contact Information 

I did that to avoid repeating an element from further downstream in 
the element chain.

We may need a new label for the person sending the message, or 
responsible for sending the message (like MessageContact or 
MessageContactRole) to avoid having a term that is used in its own 
definition which would have if we used either 
ContactInformation:ContactInformation or 
ContactRole:ContactInformation (in which Contact Role is a defining 
characteristic with a specific list of types).

  I have attached my update of the main Element Reference Model so you 
can see what I have done. I didn't want to update all of the rest of 
the models until I am sure that this much is correctly aligned.

I would also appreciate any discussion about whether we should 
consider adding the ContactInformation package to the 
ResponseInformation unit. My question is to those with more practical 
on-the-ground experience than I have as to whether or not a person 
other that the person sending a response type message would be the 
contact for that information. I certainly don't want to add wrinkles 
where we could get out of synch between the data dictionary, schema 
and models on the basis of my own speculation.
