for TEI in Libraries version 3.0 ("BP") was released in
October 2011 as a significant revision meant to incorporate major
changes to the TEI Guidelines since its previous revision. Since
then, a number of significant new features have been introduced into
TEI P5 (such as the introduction of @style), with more under
consideration by the Technical Council now (most significantly, a
new element for external metadata), that are of interest to users of
TEI in libraries and others who find this document and its
associated ODDs useful.
I have created issues
(similar to SourceForge tickets) in the BP GitHub site for
some possible changes to the BP document and ODDs that I am aware
of. I invite you to comment on these issues and create new issues
recording bugs or things that might be improved.
I plan to lead a discussion during the SIG on Libraries meeting
during this year's TEI conference (in Lyon) to review the issues and
discuss other issues people bring up. I hope to work out a timeline
with collaborators to implement the issues in the ODD source and
release a new version of the BP.
Even if you won't be able to make our meeting in Lyon, I look
forward to your collaboration on this endeavor. Please don't
hesitate to be in touch.
Co-convenor of the SIG on Libraries
