Meeting in 35 hours' time

Hi all,
Our regular “Europe Friendly” meeting is on in about 35 hours’ time.
At this meeting I’m most keen to place people into groups to address certain types of Use Cases and patterns. So far we have established groups for provenance at:

* Spatial
* Enterprise scale
* Project scale
Please come along to this meeting to either join one of those groups or to create a new one.

Patterns DB in production - almost complete

Dear WG,
I have just transferred the last of our Use Cases, Patterns, Implementations and so on from the Patterns DB from the dev server we’ve been running until now to a production server. The site will not go down again!
I am now working on the RDA logins to the system so that you all, and any other RDA members, can log in to the DB using your RDA credentials. For now, Use Cases etc. that you have contributed are attributed to you but you can’t add new ones or edit them until this logon work is complete.

Next meeting cancelled - call for mini-groups

Hi all,
The meeting for today/tomorrow in 10 hours is cancelled due to the unavailability of co-chairs.
The main item of current consideration in the group is the establishment of small groups around types of Use Cases, Patterns and Implementations. This is in order to think through all the variations and representations of them within an area, say spatial provenance, and to document things well.
From the last meeting we established the following mini-groups:
* Spatial
* Vocabularies
* provenance of and provenance using vocabs
