No recommended changes from co-facilitators or members. We anticipate the group continuing for another year.
Question about groups such as URI Selection WG and the newly formulated M3 Maintenance group, which are ongoing, active, but aren’t focused on putting out a specific product at this time. Free-form as needs arise.
Reports from Groups/Representatives
Machine-readable Metadata Modeling Specification Working Group
Setup of a group to maintain the spec?
Report from the group has been drafted
Although there is a lot of polishing that still needs to happen in the repository, the deliverable has been created and the report will be sent out to the SMIG soon
Once the report is done, M3 will be moved into ‘Completed’ and an Ongoing Maintenance M3 Group will be formed
URI Selection WG
Update from Julie H.: Steering has given the go ahead to start with a Github repo for a first version of the vocab manager so Julie Allinson and I are going to talk with Ryan Wick and figure out how to get things started. I think it will be in the context of the URI Selection WGbut we will have an update on that at the next SMIG meeting.
Outstanding question of a domain
Three submissions in the past year; progress has been slow.
Question of resources and branding for hosting infrastructure for such projects
UCSD is currently pursuing user stories for minting linked predicates
There is currently a github to take in requests, but not yet for hosting anything
The Roadmap Council conducted a survey in June 2019 to gain information about how community members feel about projects that the Repository Managers WG, Core Components WG, Metadata IG/WGs, Hyrax/Avalon/Hyku WGs projects and future directions.
In general, survey results indicated that there is strong community interest in supporting Valkyrie/Wings middleware switch-out in Hyrax, and so it the current focus of resources was seen to be validated.
Hyrax Product Owner job description: Julie Allinson is heading up a plan for refreshing this; the Roadmap Council realized after looking at Steve’s duties that it was way more than 20% of his time
Ideas for Next Year
Vocabulary Manager WG
Meeting is unfortunately concurrent with SMIG meeting at Connect this year
Collection-level Metadata Application Profile?
Setting up better defaults and making the edit path clear if folks are making changes
Could mirror the same evaluation workflow as the item level metadata work that has already been completed
M3 work that is Collection-specific could hooked in once published; question of rangling the Jekyll output -
