Issues Descriptions

Revise the definition of designation to better align with the latest version of ISO 1087

  • Key: COMMONS-26
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    The definitions of designation and name need some additional work and don't align with the ISO definitions as well as they should. The definition of designation needs clarification and the definition of name should state that it is not linguistically neutral per its usage in the standard. Also, even if we clarify name, we probably don't want it to be disjoint with identifier as it is now (needs further discussion).

The properties in the collections ontology are confusing to users

  • Key: COMMONS-12
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    Users are confused as to whether they need comprises or hasConstituent or hasMember or hasPart.

    In order to address this, we need to augment some of the properties with disjointness, such as between comprises and hasPart. Then we need to make clear that membership involves discrete elements and constituency may or may not involve discrete elements. hasConstituent can be used with cardinality constraints whereas hasPart cannot be due to OWL reasoning constraints.

There needs to be an additional usage note on Text in the TextDatatype ontology with a stronger warning

  • Key: COMMONS-18
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    This datatype is quite useful but most free and some commercial OWL tools don't support (1) custom datatypes in OWL, and (2) rdf:langString. We need to provide a stronger warning to users who might want to extend Text with the inherent risk in doing so depending on their application and tool infrastructure.

Revise the abbreviation for the AboutCommons "make file

  • Key: COMMONS-16
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    The AboutCommons.rdf file is a convenience file that can be used to load all of the ontologies into ontology editors such as Protege, triple stores, and other applications. The namespace prefix for this ontology does not conform to the others in terms of its structure, however. It is currently "abt-cmns" and should be "cmns-abt".

CodeSet should be a subclass of arrangement

  • Key: COMMONS-19
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    This is a gap, as classification scheme and identification scheme are both already subclasses of arrangement.
