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!

Several comments after reading the document:
- The example regarding the merger of GGF and EGA is not very clear. It mentions the "ggf" prefix, but is unclear what that would be a prefix of. I don't think there is a urn:ggf and urn:ogf:ggf has not been mentioned before, so it is not clear.
- Page 4: "other thAn grid resources."
- I would suggest to say that a URL *may* not be suitable for resources. Multiple ways of getting to a resource is not always the case.
- Page 6 has a layout problem with the RFC reference.
- Page 6: as well *as*
- Page 6: form application of aN SNID is mad available via publication of A Grid Forum...
- Page 7: is "grid working document" not capitalised?
- Page 8: why does this state that "example-wg" is not a suitable name, when page 4 uses examples such as urn:ogf:example-wg:cloud ?

The document as a whole is very solid, thanks primarily to Freek! A few minor updates:

page 7
The technical director of the OGF must be notified of any (proposed) use of a namespace identifier, by contacting The technical director of the OGF may, at his discre- tion ‚Äúreserve‚Ä? a subnamespace identifier for a limited period of time prior to approval of an Informational GFD document describing the namespace.

Since there is not an official position of "technical director" within OGF, I suggest we change this to :
The individuals responsible for maintaining OGF URNs must be notified of any (proposed) use of a namespace identifier by contacting These individuals, at their discretion, may "reserve" a subnamespace identifier for a limited period of time prior to approval of an informational GFD document describing the namespace.

page 8
Registration date: date of submission of the GFD.

probably should be the publication date since that is more deterministic.

page 10
extra "the"
Considerations: [RFC 2141] does not allow query or fragment identifiers, but the they may be allowed in the future.
