Replying to both your messages about the Dublin Core references. This
remains an awkward situation.
Background -- for those who don't remember and as I check the latest
OPC uses elements from [A] the original 15-element set of Dublin Core
elements (in its version 1.1) AND from [B] the so-called "terms"
extension. Elements from [B] include dcterms:created and dcterms:modified.
The terms in [A] and [B] are both defined in the human-readable document at
and in text/turtle at
I agree that we should not refer to the text/turtle versions. I think
there used to be purls that referred to the human-readable versions, but
that would have been in the 1990s and I don't find anything now.
[A] is also defined at
ISO 15836-1:2017 Information and documentation -- The Dublin Core
metadata element set -- Part 1: Core elements
ISO/NP 15836-2 is a new proposal for an ISO standard that would solve
For now, I don't see how we can avoid referring to
http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/ and doing whatever the rules
In summary, I agree with your proposals:
Use the ISO 15836-1 reference for the Dublin Core MetadataElement Set V1.
Use http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/ for DCMI Metadata Terms
(this would let us easily switch to using
15836-2 in the unlikely situation that it gets through the ISO process in
