Group decision to focus on instruments alone

04 Oct 2017

All,
at the call on Monday, we agreed among the participants to limit the scope
of this WG to developing a concept for persistent identification of
instrument *instances*. This means:
- Platform (as concept and instance) is out of scope
- Deployment (as concept and instance) is out of scope
- Instrument model is out of scope
- Relationships between platform and deployment are out of scope
- Relationships between instrument instance and instrument model identifier
may be in scope
- Relationships between instrument instance and platform identifier may be
in scope
- Relationships between instrument instance and deployment identifier may
be in scope
This decision is up for comment for one week. We will address objections.
Assuming we resolve the objections, we will formally adopt this decision
and reflect this in the Case Statement.
Thanks.
Cheers, m.
