If we cancel this meeting there probably won't be any further progress 
before Barcelona. I propose we all make the effort to get enough work done 
to justify having the concall, even though it may not last the full two hours.

The most useful thing would be for Holger to get the draft requirements 
written and distributed a few days before April 15th in order to spark a 

We also agreed that we would each identify some small set of data and 
create example topic maps.

Lars Marius and I have done some work on GCA conference proceedings that we 
will present in the next few days. We also have the Free XML Tools web site 
for which we will create both PSIs and a topic map.

I suggest that we don't worry too much about the final form of the 
published subject indicators and identifiers, since that is the domain of 
the PubSubj TC. But we should agree on a provisional syntax for PS 
identifiers, in order to facilitate the merging of whatever topic maps each 
of us creates. I suggest we use the following pattern for the time being:


where "foo" is a class (e.g. "tools") and "bar" is an instance (e.g. "xp").

Does anyone else have the bandwidth to provide input? I would really like 
to keep up the momentum on this...
