   Re: [xml-dev] Invitation to metadata dictionary wiki - meaningfuel.org

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Klaus, 

Don't get me wrong, the participants we are trying to attract for this 
project are people familiar with their field (as mentioned on the 
site), experts included of course. But metadata is and will always be 
a vast problem that touches everything; many people, technical and non-
technical, need to be involved. We think a wiki is the perfect 
platform for sharing and producing a consistent evolving vocabulary.
