Comments by TCG

Chairs should add their comments under their name.

Mark Allen (Applications WG)

I approve

Christophe Arviset (TCG vice Chair)

I'm not an XML expert, but I've been ensured by the experts that it can be approved.

Matthew Graham (Grid & Web Services WG)

I approve this document.

Bob Hanisch (Data Curation & Preservation IG)

I am not an XML expert, but I have been assured by my colleagues who are that this document is all in order and fully vetted by those most involved in registry implementation. Thus I add my vote of approval.

Gerard Lemson (Theory IG)

I approve and like the way it is written.

Mireille Louys (Data Models WG)

I approve the document and have appreciated the clear organisation and documentation of these pieces of XML, generaly difficult to read.

Keith Noddle (DAL WG)

I approve this document. Defining VOResource was always going to be a challenge and I think the team have done magnificently.

However, I feel the attention of the IVOA as a whole needs to be drawn to two key sentences in the document:

1. "Another intended use is as a language for services to describe themselves directly. VOResource may be used in other ways, in whole or in part, using the standard XML mechanisms (e.g., import, include)."

2. "...full and useful description of a specific resource will require additional metadata that is relevant only to a resource of its type. Thus, the VOResource schema has been especially designed to be extended."

Taken together these highlight key deliverables for the standard that can easily be lost if VOResource is viewed solely in the context of the Registry.

Francois Ochsenbein (VOTable WG)

Pedro Osuna (VOQL WG)

I approve.

Ray Plante (Resource Registry WG)

I approve.

Andrea Preite-Martinez (Semantics WG)

I approve.

Roy Williams (VOEvent WG)
