Moved to the Proposals for new specifications section, which was its intended home. If you use Option 1 below to indicate interest, please use its hyperlink rather than the “Reply” button on this thread.
I am wondering how much community interest there would be in forming a working groups in the following topic area. This is not a formal proposal of any kind, although I used a past one to give it some basic structure. If there appears to be sufficient interest in it, then we can make a proposal to Core at some future time.
Does a monitoring record about a computer system and an asset record about a computer system, taken together, describe one or two computer systems? This is a central issue when the resources described are not themselves electronic documents, be they computer systems, software applications, HTTP servers, whatever.
The goal of this effort would be to define a common set of resources, properties, and constraints on property values useful for answering that category of question, so that multiple tools can have a common understanding of the answer when they integrate.
If you WOULD like to participate in such a working group, please do ONE of the following (most preferred action is first):
