Subject: RE: [office] OASIS namespace design and resources

Hi Svante,

  There's one other problem - the official shortname of the committee is
"office" rather than "opendocument". There is also no notion of
"subcommittee" within approved technical work, since work can only be
incorporated/approved by the main TC.

We always return the namespace document. There are no physical resources
allowed at/under the namespace location. All physical resources will reside
at http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/ ... I recommend further
subdivision to identify the specific iteration (i.e. cd01, prd01, cs01, os,

The namespace template document can be found here:

Let me know if you have further questions - I'm happy to help!

Best regards,

> Hi Mary,

> http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/opendocument/1.2/meta/pkg#
> http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/opendocument/1.2/meta/odf#
> Note:
> Behind the version, the path includes the sub-committee name 'meta',
> because the XML elements are RDF elements and exist only in an RDF/XML
> file as elements and as well 'pkg' or 'odf' to destinguish two sets of
> XML elements according to the two layers of ODF 1.2:
> 1) the ODF package layer defining the zipped package reusable by XML
> formats than ODF XML and
> 2) the ODF document layer related to the ODF XML schema
> Would the naming schema consist with the OASIS rules?
> As the desired resource behind the new namespace URLs are RDF
> vocabularies, I would like to ask, if OASIS is able to provide a
> mechanism as described in "Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF
> Vocabularies" [2]. This approach is used by RDF related sites (e.g.
> [3]). The basic idea is that the server returns an RDF/XML file for RDF
> crawlers, but some human readable resource (XHTML) in case of user
> agents/browsers. In our case the XHTML file would be a RDDL namespace
> document [4] [5].
> If such a mechanism [2] is possible I will create two RDDL files for
> the
> namespaces, otherwise the OWL grammar would be more adequate than RDDL.
> Finally I got one further resource to be accessed from an OASIS server:
> The XSLT GRDDL file to map the RDFa and meta.xml to RDF/XML, that I
> would suggest to locate at
> http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/opendocument/1.2/odf2rdf.xsl
