I have been reading the TAP 0.31 spec and given comments on its contents. I
have listed these on wike page
Don't know if that is suitable place, but there was no discussion page yet
and I'd like to avoid a large email this time.
My main comments concern /sync and /async, the contents of the metadata,
issues ofcase sensitivity,
and which parameters can go together. I have not much to say about
No doubt some of the more detailed comments also on the page have been made
irrelevant by Pat's new proposal.
For the metadata I have tried capturing some proposals that have been
discussed in the past (in thread on VODataSerivce) together with the
metadata in the spec in a UML model at the bottom of the page.
In particular it contains details that Francois Ochsenbein and I discussed
concerning foreign keys.
In my opinion such a diagram might serve to focus the discussion on the
contents, without also immediately requiring discussions of the form
(TAP_SCHEMA, VODataService/XML, VOTable).
Hope this can be of some help.
