Tomaž took over the meeting and asked Chet to present:  

- Welcome from OASIS Staff- Discussion of Contributed Work

Chet used the attached presentation on OASIS TC process

- Tomaž and Chet clarified that public reviews are indeed as wide as possible and publicly available for commenters outside of the TC and OASIS.

- Also it was clarified that comments necessiating material changes require another round of public review. Only a technically stable specification can be approved as Committee Specification, which is safe to implement becuase it cannot undergoe any material changes through COS and OS approval stages. It was also clarified that at least one of the required 3 Statements of Use (SOU, required to progress from CS to COS) needs to come from an OASIS member, implementations are encouraged from inside and outside of the TC.

- Patrick noted that according to charter and announcment text ELEXIS consortium is expected to contribute their work on the lexicographic data model. Patrick asked how this was possible w/o Elexis being a LEXIDMA TC member. Chet noted in response that non-members can still contribute through the TC's comment list. dF explained that the ELEXIS consortium doesn't have legal entity and that IJS (TC member) is ELEXIS coordinator and has the necessary rights to contribute the ELEXIS deliverables as preliminary technical work to the LEXIDMA TC.

- Assignment of Other Responsibilities
Tomaž appointed dF as his Secretary. dF accepted.

dF asked Simon to briefly motivate the need for lexicographic data model as worked on within the ELEXIS consortium.

Simon explained the need for serialization independent data model and mappings with current serialization driven formats used in the fragmented lexicographic practice (retrodigitized dictionaries, modern dictionaries, corpora, across geographies and languages, etc.), he expained about the need for mappings with Ontolex, TEI Lex-0, LMF

dF lead a bried discussion about the chartered deliverables


The first deliverable on the Standard track (DMLex) should conain at least the 3 features listed above, and at most all 6 of the listed features (including the Ontolex and TEI Lex-0 mappings).. dF said the main purpose of the common data model was semantic interoperability among various serializations and formats, and that the Conveners strived to make the TC charter globally relevant and attractive, to aim for a "One World" standard.. Tomaž noted that the data model work should comprise 75%-80% of the technical work, while serializations and mappings should come along easily..

dF moved to intiate work on Data model for Lexicograpy (DMLex), Version 1.0

Seconded by Patrick

Motion approved unanimously

Simon Krek and dF self-nominated as Co-Editors for DMLex, Version 1.0

dF mandated to request document model from OASIS Admin (Chet)

Editors to make decision about the editting format, more co-editors welcome to join as the work progresses..
