Need an overview document that gives the background and rationale for eml. This
would likely have both normative and non-normative sections. Would include an
overview of the structure of EML and the rationale for that structure, and its
intended use. Descriptes packaging and triples in detail. Probably would have
a normative appendix that defines the semantics of every field, which could be
auto-generated from the XSD source documentation.

Chris -- you started an outline for this. Can you recreate it here or in a
document in CVS?

We should have this for the 2.0.0 release but will not likely have it for the
beta7 release.

Actions #3

Updated by Matt Jones over 21 years ago

A prototype has been developed, but need to refine this as the spcification
document for the release. Changing milestone.

Actions #4

Updated by Matt Jones over 21 years ago

Much progress made, but revisions still required for EML 2.0.0. Changing milestone.

Actions #5

Updated by Chris Jones over 21 years ago

Moving the spec document milestone to the 2.0.0 release. There are a number of
structural changes that need to be made to this document, as well as content

1) Chapter's 1 and 3 have too much overlap, and so need to be reconciled.

2) The entire document needs to be formatted with section and sub-section
numbering for easier referencing

3) Example graphics are needed to get the concepts across

I've got David scheduled to work on this and I would like to work on it as well
