OGF Public Comments

Public comments are a very important part of the OGF document approval process.  Through public comments, documents are given scrutiny by people with a wide range of expertise and interests. Ideally, a OGF document will be self-contained, relying only on the other documents and standards it cites to be clear and useful.  Public comments of any type are welcomed, from small editorial comments to broader comments about the scope or merit of the proposed document.  The simple act of reading a document and providing a public comment that you read it and found it suitable for publication is very useful, and provides valuable feedback to the document authors.

Thank you for making public comments on this document!

Are there problems with update "storms" when information changes? If so, does this compromise performance?

The INFOD specification is a critical component of several proposals that we are developing to improve DOD social networks by establishing the formal and standardized means of automating the discovery and management of organizational connections that are otherwise time-consuming and impractical during time-sensitive operations. Currently, other than INFOD, no systematic means exists or offers the potential to discover and connect data sources and providers that are not known ahead of time (i.e., during contigency planning) or identified informally while performing operations.

I have followed the development of the INFOD specification and see great
potential for a number of applications. I have already begun research
for applying it to the emergency management domain.

This is a well written document. It is important that this experience of implementing GFD.110 is published. The errata to GFD.110 are particularly useful for others wishing to implement against the standard.

INFOD prototype implemented by UTK (University Tennessee Knoxville) provides a an important milestone on the path to the architecture of large scale information notification in complex systems. The prototype sheds light on the efficacy of the INFOD standard in the dissemination of information in a distributed system that require flexibility and adaptability. The experience with the prototype introduces novel uses of databases and will certainly influence their future architecture.

The Information Dissemination process as described in INFOD specification and implemented by UTK (University Tennessee Knoxville) is very important for the architecture and development of large scale systems, that need to distribute information in a very flexible and adaptive way. The mutual filtering mechanism, described in the specification and implemented by the prototype, is unique and very important mechanism for the fine-grained control of information (knowledge) propagation and targeting in knowledge management and distribution systems.
The architecture and prototype add experience and lessons and will have an influence on the evolution of information (knowledge) repositories, including databases, that are able to disseminate information in a timely and flexible manner.

I have read the specs and they are very useful when developing applications such as data sharing middleware with multiple dynamic sources that require near real-time matching between publishers, consumers and subscribers.
