Debbie and Tom,    (01)

In various forums over the years, many of the people who subscribe
to this list have been discussing the use of various kinds of tools
that have been developed for representing and using metadata, of
which ontologies are a very important part.    (02)

In particular, the ISO committee that is responsible for the
Common Logic standard (currently in the FDIS stage) has the title
"Metadata", and most of their time is devoted to developing,
maintaining, and extending the ISO/IEC 11179 standard for Metadata
Registries (MDR).  Following is their home page:    (03)

     ISO/IEC 11179 Information Technology, Metadata Registries    (04)

The issues about developing, maintaining, using, reusing, and
sharing ontologies are a special case of the issues that have
been addressed by these groups for a long time.    (05)

It is essential that we coordinate with and build on that work
instead of reinventing another half-baked wheel.    (06)
