Issue 498: the scope note of E53 can be sets of contiguous areas
On virtual meeting of CIDOC CRM editorial team for version 7.0 on 2/6/2020
The editorial team reviewed the decision of the 46th sig meeting during the next virtual meeting and proposed
(a) to NOT delete the following paragraph
"Consequently, an instance of E4 Period may occupy a number of disjoint spacetime volumes, however there must not be a discontinuity in the timespan covered by these spacetime volumes. This means that an instance of E4 Period must be contiguous in time. If it has ended in all areas, it has ended as a whole. However, it may end in one area before another, such as in the Polynesian migration, and it continues as long as it is ongoing in at least one area"
(b) to create a new issue about making clear that the scope note of E53 can be sets of contiguous areas
The crm-sig on 26/2/2020 accepted the above (a) & (b)
