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


Regarding the schema.

I built the reference schema from the matrix and it was designed to
remain faithful to the matrix we approved in the meeting.  The big
change was to abstract out as types the elements that did not change
across the matrix. I was actually planning to wait on the individual
message schemas until the matrix is complete. 

(So I guess that I agree with you!)

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
