Subject: GJXDM vs EDXL Distribution isses

The GJXDM subschema generator is up again today so I ran another
difference against it

EDXL Distribution has an element "eventType" that is type as an

GJXDM has an Type "EventType" wich is a data type for multiple kinds of
events and has the subelements of EventDate, EventDescriptionText,
EventName, EventStatus, Event Time, and Event Type Text

These are fundamentally different.  GJXDM uses Type in its naming
conventions almost exclusively for organizing a data type and not for

In general the GJXDM uses "code" for ennumerated value sets of all kinds
and CategoryCode  or TypeCode for classification such as we have in
EDXL.  This is true even if the code instances are complete words.

To be GJXDM compliant we would probably have to change the "eventType"
to something more akin to "EmergencyEventTypeCode"

There is probably more of this to come. Your thoughts..............?
