Re: [xml-dev] International standards versioning communities

XML-dev is probably the closest thing to what I want but I figured I would ask in case someone knew some list more appropriate.
I need to be able to figure out what versioning rules particular organizations are using - for example if I want to do an automatic metadata extraction for documents from CCS (China Classification Society) or Bureau Veritas I would like to know if they have any sort of standardization regarding document structure so I don't have to spend a lot of time asking each organization or trying to figure out what the structure is by examining all documents they've released - but I bet there is not any sort of a community dedicated to this kind of discussion.
That is quite an arbitrary query to try and satisfy. Are you trying to cover different domains or a single domain? Communities of organizations may come up with conventions for members to use, but it would require uptake, then, by those members to great a corpus of documents using the common vocabulary.

I can offer the following regarding international standardization, which comes to mind when you cite the organizations you cited.

The NISO STS (Standards Tag Set) is the evolution of the ISO STS use of the JATS vocabulary both for metadata and for content. A number of SDOs (Standards Development Organizations) are using NISO.


I'm involved with the http://SetareSolutions.com startup that is servicing the SDOs who need PDF and HTML renderings of the ISO standards marked up using STS. We are seeing STS now from ISO national bodies that also are publishing their own national documents, not just those from ISO. This trend should result in widespread adoption of the metadata conventions that would help within that one particular domain.

But a general query across unrelated domains of "what metadata structures are you using?" ... I can't think of how that would happen. I'm wondering if I've just misunderstood what it is you are looking for.
