I cannot say what implications this has for you, because I don't know
your organization nor standardization body nor the work you are doing

Aperture will move to the Nepomuk NIE  ontology soon, where we have
further formalized vCard , vCalendar, and many other things. We have made

Leo -- what does this mean for the ongoing work here on an updated vcard-in-rdf?
perhaps you could give me more detail?
(note: I cannot follow the discussion on firstname.lastname@example.org, too much

We created NIE as a standard for the Semantic Desktop, within the
Nepomuk.semanticdesktop.org project, and we plan to implement it with a
reference implementation (aperture.sf.net). Standardization is first by
best practice and community, later we aim for official standardization
bodies (ISO, W3C, OASIS, still an open question).
What may help us both is when you look at NIE  and especially the
ontology  and if you find bugs, send them to us, if not, just use
NIE as it is.
By this way, we can also both work on Aperture to get good data->rdf
If you think that NIE is not what you had in mind, you can use anything
else. Ontologies are an open market :-)
yes, but we have a 15mio€ EU project running and need to deliver
something every few months, we couldn't wait for the calender group to
fix it. I am pragmatic in this regard. We are happy that we have NIE
And what to do about the calendar work? It's unfortunate you got no
response from the W3C hosted list.
Antoni Mylka was the main author of NIE, he used input and discussed
with developers from Aperture, Beagle, freedesktop, strigi, etc.
especially the contact ontology:
