Subject: RE: [obix] 1.1 Schema version guidance sought

The only one’s I know of are potentially related to the Metadata tags. If those go entirely into internal content (Contains “:”, formal model, otherwise just text) then that is simplified…

Subject: [obix] 1.1 Schema version guidance sought


The most recent schema, and apparently the one Toby's been validating against, is "obix-v1.1_WD21.xsd" or perhaps "obix 1.1 WD20.xsd". They differ only in the heading comments and XML Spy edit notes. 

  • WD21 carries an internal date of 19 December 2013
  • The "WD21" version says internally that it's WD24, CSD02/PRD02 rather than WD21 as indicated in the filename
  • The UML I've produced is based on the 2013-11-08 version, the WD24 version adds annotations and additional types

So I'm going to put reworking the UML on my work queue, starting with the WD24 version listed as WD21.


For the future I would hope we could either
    (1) package the schema with the document working drafts, or
    (2) keep a separate stream with changes only when there are changes to the schema, which would make it easier to track and decouple from the specification WDs.

Another approach would be that if WDxx were uploaded, the ZIP archive would contain the related schema, keeping the most recent changed version (WD24 in this case).  The references to the schema in the document header could probably stay the same, but it would be the full work product.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
