Issue 538: Documenting the changes in the CRM

ID: 
538
Starting Date:

Working Group:

Status: 
Open
Background: 

In the 49th CIDOC CRM and 42nd FRBR CRM sig meeting (virtual), the SIG discussed the accessibility of the empirical evidence that motivates changes in the model. It was decided that this should be done via a separate issue,  bearing in mind that once a change has been implemented, it’s not easy to recover the thought process that motivated it in the first place. Documenting a decision does not guarantee that decisions provided are understood. What is needed is an application to keep  track of that. Formulating and summarizing issues poses difficulties, a safe way to not loose information is documenting email exchanges through the sig list.

HW: Sig members to propose mechanisms to better document the decision making process in a structured way.
