Opinions about Versioning? Participate in the Symposium!
XML vocabularies change. XML documents change. XML applications change. These changes are often complex, they should usually be managed and tracked, and in most XML environment versioning is handled poorly at best. Do you have opinions on how we could handle versioning well? On what we as a community are doing wrong? An example of XML versioning handled well? The Balisage pre-conference "International Symposium on Versioning XML Vocabularies and Systems" (http://www.balisage.net/Versioning/) has included time in the program for a "Speakers Corner". During this time all symposium attendees are invited to give short presentations. Attendees are encouraged to prepare their 5-minute presentations in advance, to organize their presentations to make good use of limited time, and to prepare visuals in HTML to accompany their presentations if desired. Applications to present at "Speaker's Corner" will be collected at the symposium, and should consist of: * the name of the speaker * the title of the presentation * a short (25 word maximum) summary of the topic of the presentation If there are more proposals than can be accommodated, proposals from people who have already spoken will be discarded, and random selections from the remaining proposals will be made. As at the "Speaker's Corner" in London's Hyde Park, after which this "Speakers Corner" is modeled, there will be virtually no restrictions on allowed content. However, the Versioning Symposium's organizers will terminate presentations that are not related to versioning, that are disrespectful of others or their points of view, or that are still incomplete after five minutes have elapsed. It is the organizer's hope that this open microphone time will lead to a lively and productive discussion about both the problems users encounter in working with versioning in an XML environment and ways in which these problems can be, or have been, managed.
