    • Looks quite straightforward
    • Everyone has an account, there is a history
    • Colour scheme for collaboration.
    • View with markdown
    • Markdown comments
    • Syntax highlighting for code snippets
    • Features added in pro version probably not needed

    • Susanne will try to import, publish

    • Google doc syncing worked
    • GitHub syncing did not work but should
    • Export to HTML (and PDF in 'sponsored' mode)
    • Thomas will test some more

    • available now
    • books can be converted to new GitBook

Susanne, Thomas, Twan will report at the next meeting


  • Menzo: align with generic concepts (CCR coordinators)
  • BLAM
    • We will get in touch with Felix et al to see if they are interested in discussing this further

Common approaches section

Sections that have been worked on:

  • Modelling for metadata conversion (merge next time?)
  • Optimising for discoverability (perhaps turn into CAC submission)
  • Dealing with changes
  • Multilingual metadata


  • #24 priority of C13 and C14 has to be aligned (both high), Menzo will take care of this and add some text to indicate that missing concepts should be requested
