Subject: Re: [tm-pubsubj-comment] ISSUE 1 and ISSUE X

* Lars Marius Garshol
| Comments on the SAM draft has now raised two issues:
|   psi-identification
|     How does one identify which topics represent published subjects,
|     and which ones do not?

* Bernard Vatant
| What is the purpose of this distinction? 

I created an issue for this because I see that a number of people
consider this to be important, and so I feel that it is necessary to
address that concern. Personally, I am not at all convinced that this
is necessary, but we need to argue it out and settle it, therefore I
made it a formal issue.

(To put it another way: ask Martin Bryan and the people in this TC who
have brought up the issue of telling published subjects in a published
subject topic map from the machinery topics not intended to represent
published subjects.)

| Do you think this is a necessary distinction in any topic map, or is
| it specific to SAM ?

I don't think that's a valid distinction. The SAM is the model for all
topic maps, so if it's an issue in any topic map it's an issue in SAM.

* Lars Marius Garshol
|   psi-set-psi
|     How does one create a topic representing the set of all published
|     subjects defined as part of SAM in such a way that it can be
|     reliably merged?
* Bernard Vatant
| I don't understand why this is an issue. We need a PSI for this set,
| but in what is it a specific issue?

I created an issue for this because it seemed to me that PubSubj ISSUE
1 was the same issue. Since SAM has to follow the PubSubj TC
guidelines it has to follow the resolution of PubSubj ISSUE 1 (if I
interpreted that issue correctly) I couldn't answer this question
straight away, and so I created an issue for it. (Admittedly, that may
have been unnecessary.)
| Yes. I know I *have* to review the issues document altogether. Hope
| to make it between today and tomorrow ...

That would be great. If you can't make it, it's no tragedy, but if you
did make it it would simplify things somewhat.
