Rebecca Guenther Reject This is a special purpose date not for general application. I can see its use but only for a small number of types of resources; the only example anyone can give is train/bus schedules. It needs to also be made clear that this is the validity of the information content of the resource.
Eric Childress Approve  
Stuart Sutton Approve  
Sigfrid Lundberg Approve  
Warwick Cathro Approve This is useful for materials which cease to be valid after they are superseded for legal reasons, but are still available for access and consultation. e.g. tax rulings, standards and regulations.
Erik Jul Approve  
Rachel Heery Reject I think this is unlikely to be of 'widespread use'. This is one of our criteria for recommendation as outlined in the principles

Rebecca Guenther Reject This is a special purpose date mainly for events, not one for general applications. There is also confusion between date available and date issued, since an issued date is essentially a publication date and a publisher is defined as one who makes the resource available. So what then is available date?
Eric Childress Approve  
Stuart Sutton Approve  
Sigfrid Lundberg Approve  
Warwick Cathro Approve Shouldn't this only be for intended issue dates? Isn't it "issued" after it has become available?
Erik Jul Approve Logically, this definition should read "Date (often a range) that the resource is, will be, or was available. Also, since a range of dates is possible, "becoming" available is not the crucial point since "becoming available" represents a point in time, not a range of time.

Rebecca Guenther Approve Needs clarification as to how it relates to issued date. If the resource is modified and then issued (made available), when is it considered a enw resource and the issued date changed as opposed to adding a modification date? This seems to depend on the domain in which it's used.

Rebecca Guenther Approve Please clarify that the hyphens between year, month, day are optional, since ISO8601 allows for both expressions. If that is not correct, I'll change my vote.
Eric Childress Approve Note: hyphens are required under this scheme. W3C-DTF is a profile of ISO8601 and has defined a subset of practice allowed by ISO8601.
