Attendees: Jay, Larry, Jannik, Johan, Oliver, Wendy Jon, Thérèse
The Agent, Process, Conceptual parts of the library and the discovery view were created in Drupal during the Toronto sprint. They are now ready to be reviewed by the modelling team. There are notes on the wiki which should help you to know what needs to be checked in Drupal and what conventions have been agreed (see: Drupal Conventions). Wendy will review this document to make sure that it is up to date and correct.
The review works was allocated out as follows:
Jon will look at everything from a documentation rather than modelling perspective. Johan will go on holiday
The group agreed to meeting in 2 - 3 weeks to discuss results of the reviewing work.

Moving forward: grouping mechanisms
-Jay sent a document highlighting the importance of de-coupling data models from bindings/encodings. There’s agreement that the grouping mechanisms discussion needs to happen from the modeling perspective rather than the binding; doing bindings is something that should happen independently of the modeling work.
-Need to agree on the features of the bag and need to come up with extensions on that for specific types of collection purposes.

Challenges of UML -> Relational Mapping
-The conceptual constructs we’ve been using so far won’t be able to be expressed in relational. The aggregations, additional semantics, doesn’t map cleanly, the more object-oriented it becomes the more problematic it will be for relational expression. It’s something we need to consider.
