	 == Proceedings ==    (4EBU)
	[7:06] PeterYim: == MikeDean and PeterYim starts the meeting ...    (4EBV)
	[7:06] PeterYim: we will try to finish the meeting in an hour if we can (since both Michael and Leo need to leave in an hour)    (4EBW)
	[7:06] List of members: LeoObrst, MichaelGruninger, MikeDean, PeterYim, TillMossakowski, ToddSchneider    (4EBX)
	[7:08] PeterYim: === Brainstorm: Future of the OOR Project    (4EBY)
	[7:08] PeterYim: ==== exploring a closer-coupled working relationship between IAOA and OOR    (4EBZ)
	[7:09] ToddSchneider: Is IAOA interested in running an ontology repository?    (4EC0)
	[7:11] MichaelGruninger: The (currently empty) page for the IAOA Ontology Registries and  Repositories 
        Technical Committee is    (4EC1)
	[7:13] MichaelGruninger: Technical Committees (TCs) and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in IAOA differ only 
        in scope (where the latter has a broader scope)    (4EC2)
	[7:15] PeterYim: if OOR gets "absorbed into" the IAOA Ontology Repository TC, would OOR team members need 
        to be IAOA members?    (4EC3)
	[7:17] LeoObrst: IAOA has an exception in the IAOA-SWAO-SIG, in that SIG members do not necessarily have 
        to be IAOA members for participation contribution (but will need to become an IAOA member for voting rights 
        and IAOA membership benefits)    (4EC4)
	[7:17] ToddSchneider: Would the IAOA Ontology Registries and  Repositories Technical Committee absorb all 
        of the past work of OOR?    (4EC5)
	[7:19] MichaelGruninger: The IAOA TC was intended to be a support forum for people to find access to any of 
        the ontology repositories that exist. Ideally, IAOA would like to coordinate the activities of ontology repositories    (4EC6)
	[7:20] MikeDean: Umbrella and infrastructure are attractive, but OOR seems much more mature organizationally.  
        OOR also has an established brand.    (4EC7)
	[7:20] LeoObrst: there is no charter yet for that TC    (4EC8)
	[7:22] ToddSchneider: But if IAOA's 'mission' is to promote the use of ontology, should it not provide a 
        source of ontologies?    (4EC9)
	[7:24] MikeDean: OOR focused on software environment as well as content.    (4ECA)
	[7:26] LeoObrst:  OOR could become a project under that TC    (4ECB)
	[7:31] ToddSchneider: To Support "... the development of collaborations between research and industry" 
        shouldn't IAOA be providing a test bed or an evolving reference implementation?    (4ECC)
	[7:33] ToddSchneider: There are 'standards' and then there are defacto standards. I wouldn't think it outside 
        the scope of IAOA to support the latter.    (4ECD)
	[7:35] ToddSchneider: Can't IAOA afford commercial web hosting?    (4ECE)
	[7:37] MichaelGruninger: @ToddSchneider[7:35] There are many hosting options possible, and we are still 
        sorting out the new configuration    (4ECF)
	[7:36] LeoObrst:  OOR could also remain under new Ontolog    (4ECG)
	[7:37] MikeDean: . as platform host    (4ECH)
	[7:39] ToddSchneider: Who would take over all of the OOR artifacts?    (4ECI)
	[7:44] ToddSchneider: What are the organizational options under IAOA?    (4ECJ)
	[7:47] MichaelGruninger: @ToddSchneider: What do you mean by "organizational options"?    (4ECK)
	[7:48] LeoObrst:  potentially some OOR funding from IAOA    (4ECL)
	[7:50] PeterYim: "IAOA-TC" and "OOR Initiative" relationship possibilities: "identity," "subsumption," "affiliation," "hosting," ...    (4ECM)
	[7:51] PeterYim: ref. OOR's repository network members:    (4ECN)
	[7:54] TillMossakowski: Socop will be hosted by Ontohub, see    (4ECO)
	[7:54] MikeDean: [action-PeterYim] Peter to redirect to OntoHub SOCoP repository, which will 
        now become primary    (4ECP)
	[7:54] TillMossakowski: Peter will change the URL redirection    (4ECQ)
	[8:00] MikeDean: Peter willing to allow us to continue to use indefinitely    (4ECR)
	[8:01] ToddSchneider: Peter, what about the OOR wiki page and all the meeting artifacts?    (4ECS)
	[8:01] PeterYim: exisiting OntologWiki (now at: ) will become a "read only" archive, 
        all content will migrate to the OntologPSMW (now at: ) ... KenBaclawski-NEU 
        and TillMossakowski-Magdeburg are likely going to host that (still working out the details) ... ongoing OOR 
        work could probably continue there    (4ECT)
	[8:01] MikeDean: If email lists change, they should probably become, redirecting to whatever 
        infrastructure is used.    (4ECU)
	[8:01] PeterYim: ^subject to permission by the new hosting party, presumably    (4ECV)
	[8:03] PeterYim: ref. various lists in question:    (4ECW)
	[8:09] PeterYim: [action-PeterYim-TillMossakowski] will move the following lists: [oor-forum], [oor-dev] and 
        [oor-users] from to (along with the 18 IAOA lists)    (4ECX)
	[8:20] PeterYim: NancyWiegand and DaliaVaranka are also in the meeting (have logged in a while back already; Nancy since ~7:30)    (4ECY)
	[8:11] PeterYim: === 3.3 Taking inventory of Ontology Repository instances that are in the OOR network 
        -    (4ECZ)
	* SOCoP-OOR (taken offline since 2014.03.25 - ref. ) 
          - to be re-directed to Ontohub as discussed above, ref. TillMossakowski-PeterYim-MikeDean [7:54]
	* SIGMA (SUMO, MILO, ...) - still on CIM3.NET now, but will likely be migrated to AWS by mid-August 2014
	* ESIP-Portal? - let's pursue having them join the OOR repository network [... PeterFox, NancyWiegand, LinePouchard, NancyWiegand, GaryBergCross]    (4ED0)
	removing:    (4E51)
	* ORNL-DAAC? ... being removed because this is no longer "open" (or openly accessible)
	* OOR-dev ... Peter: will be taken offline after this meeting
	* OOR-test ... Peter: will be taken offline after this meeting
	* OOR-sandbox ... Peter: will be taken offline in August, unless someone takes over the hosting of this [KenBaclawski?]    (4ED1)
	[8:15] TillMossakowski: sorry, I have to go    (4ED2)
	[8:18] PeterYim: [action-NancyWiegand] will work with PeterFox (or LinePouchard & PeterFox) to try to get the 
        ESIP-Portal as part the federated OOR repository nodes (instances) - as in 
        - agreeing to be a node, supporting the OOR vision and mission, and permitting the ESIP-Portal to be 
        addressed as <> (or something similar)    (4ED3)
	[8:20] MichaelGruninger: (was away for about 15 minutes) ok i'm back ...    (4ED4)
	[8:25] PeterYim: [action-MichaelGruninger] will draft something tangible regarding the IAOA-OOR working 
        relationship for review, discussion and decision at the next admin and planning meeting (7/29?).    (4ED5)
        [8:25] ToddSchneider: we need KenBaclawski to be at that meeting too.    (4ED6)
	[8:27] PeterYim: next meeting: Tue 2014.07.22 (same time) - chair: TillMossakowski - topic: "Ontohub API"Tue 2014.07.22 (same time) - chair: TillMossakowski - topic: "Ontohub API" to be presented by TimReddehase (from the OntoHub team)    (4ED7)
	[8:27] MichaelGruninger: I will potentially co-chair the July 29 session with Ken. The intended outcome of 
        this meeting will be an explicit statement of the relationships between OOR and IAOA    (4ED8)
