[Crm-sig] NEW ISSUE: Small Edits Checklist

Dear all,

Currently, there is no formal process to identify small errors and/or typos
in the CIDOC CRM documentation. If a user notices, for example, a spelling
mistake in the text, two options seem possible:


   Write an email for an editor to correct the mistake;

   Create a dedicated issue.

Both options seem not quite adequate: on the one hand, sending an email can
discourage those who are not familiar with the structure of the SIG and, on
the other hand, the issues should be used for substantive discussions
rather than for minor edits.

For this reason, should we put in place a tool that would allow anyone to
identify minor errors in the CIDOC CRM documentation and which would also
be used by editors to follow up? If so, do we think a spreadsheet with a
structure similar to this
would be a good place to start? Note that this document is currently hosted
on the Canadian Heritage Information Network's Google Drive, but if
everyone agrees this is relevant, it should be hosted by the SIG.

In the context of this issue, I would particularly like to obtain your
comments on the following questions:


   Should this be implemented?

   Does this type of tool/document seem relevant to us?

   Do we like the current structure or would it be better to make some

   How should we make this document accessible? Is one link in this issue

   Regardless of where the document is published, would it be relevant to
   present the objectives and a tutorial on how to use this document in a few

   Any other questions to discuss?

Kind regards,
