Issue 22: How to deal with implementation guidelines
Implementation guidelines may be handled as a sort of a manual. This would imply a relatively clearly defined scope and methods. It could be handled as a collection of examples. It could further be handled as a news group, and a sort of a portal to respective sites, literature, experiences. Implementation guidelines are closely connected to compatibility predication.
In scope. Working Group 4.
Define the method and scope of implementation guidelines.
In Monterey, Feb. 2002 it was proposed to separate:
1. Contents questions such as "How to deal with person names"
2. Using the CRM as schema for RDFS, RDBMS, O-O DBMS, XML DTD, XML Schema
3. Compatibility notion.
For point 1, such questions should be systematically gathered.
Presentations and papers about CRM applications should be placed under the Implementation Guidelines section.
The idea of writing an implementation manual has been abandoned. Instead the group will act as a forum bringing together practical experience from projects and research.
