Revise the metadata for languages and for the specification as a whole in about files


The primary URI for a country should be based on its ISO code

  • Key: LCC12-14
  • Status: open  
  • Source: agnos.ai UK Ltd ( Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    with the name-based URI as an alternative using sameAs.
    The name-based URIs are unstable (we have had several countries changing name but not ISO code) and the algorithm (e.g. for replacing spaces and punctuation) makes them unpredictable. Most external datasets use the code not the name, requiring an expensive lookup to create a link using the name-based URI.

  • Key: LCC12-11
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:
