__TOC__
This page is for posting [[microformats]] related shared to do items.  If you want to use this page for your microformats related to-do items, create a section with your name on it.  The reason we are keeping these all on the same page is to make it easier to tell when people are working on similar things, and to make it more obvious when people help out with other people's tasks.  In theory this probably won't scale, but let's first see how it does in practice. :) - [http://tantek.com Tantek]

== microformats2 updates ==
 +
The following pages need to be updated to for microformats2 (typically code, examples, and any specific format advice)
 +
* [[what-are-microformats]]
 +
* [[introduction]]
 +
* [[get-started]]
 +
* [[faq]]
 +
* [[hcard-authoring]] -> [[h-card-authoring]]
 +
* [[hcard-examples]] -> [[h-card-examples]]
 +
* [[advocacy]]
 +
* ...
 +
 
 +
== wiki gardening ==
 +
 
 +
=== trim fixups ===
 +
Search for all uses of "tr.im" for shortlinks and replace them with "ufs.cc/w/" links that just use the pagename.
 +
 
 +
* [http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Amicroformats.org+tr.im Google search for site:microformats.org tr.im]
 +
 
 +
In particular, let's document old tr.im links and (unlinked) and where they used to link to so that if someone *searches* for tr.im URLs to figure out what happened to them, there's a chance they'll find the equivalent.
 +
 
 +
* [[tr.im]]
 +
 
 +
=== simplify pages ===
 +
Review pages, from the [[Main Page]] on down and:
 +
 
 +
* Simplify/minimize the content in the pages with direct writing, assuming an eager(impatient,positive) reader in the primary reading flow.
 +
* Move (keep) clarifications/details/documentation for edge case people (i.e. deliberate misinterpreters, sarcastic skeptics, pedants etc.) to details further down in a page (or on subpages) rather than in the primary reading flow.
 +
 
 +
Examples of simplified pages:
 +
* [[Main Page]] - simplified quite a bit (2012-04-02), but could probably use additional simplification
 +
* ...
 +
 
 +
Pages to simplify:
 +
* [[how-to-play]] (should probably be done by an admin, but left here in case someone wants to try drafting a revision on another page and have an admin review it)
 +
* pages listed in [[stable-pages]] (simplifying these first will help with better translations)
 +
** for specifications, please work with their editor(s) on non-trivial content copy edits.
 +
 
 +
=== remove broken URLs ===
 +
 
 +
There's lots of links to sites that are now gone (see [http://indiewebcamp.com/site-deaths site-deaths] on IWC for a full list).
 +
 
 +
It'd be useful if we replaced them where possible with links to archive.org or equivalent.
 +
 
 +
TODO (mark as done when done):
 +
 
 +
* [[Upcoming]]
 +
* code.google.com
 +
 
 +
=== incorporate things expected to break ===
 +
==== shortlink spec ====
 +
The rel=shortlink spec:
 +
* https://code.google.com/p/shortlink/wiki/Specification
 +
is going to die soon as part of Google Code's shutdown.
 +
 
 +
1. We should copy that spec (along with FAQ for the first few valid questions/comments) to [[rel-shortlink]], moving existing contents there to supplementary pages or purely historical record.
 +
 +
2. Get http://purl.org/net/shortlink to redirect to [[rel-shortlink]] instead.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
== more documentation and research ==
 +
=== extract from 1989 timbl proposal ===
 +
* extra all specific problems and use-cases mentioned in http://www.w3.org/History/1989/proposal.html
 +
* write them up as their own wiki pages, one per specific problem/use-case
 +
* see if they're solvable with modern [[microformats2]]

* it would be nice to replace the -in-the-wild pages with a form that accepted URL entries that would both register the site and look for valid microformatted content and for those pages with problems, would set them aside in a queue to be reviewed by the community. Having such an interface would likely be more efficient for implementors looking to have their work reviewed, and would also add to a ready-database of microformats in the wild -- which would be a great way to feed pingerati.com.

Several of these could very much be improved with a little microformats markup.  Do we just make patches and submit them?  Contact Nate Koechley at Yahoo (see Tantek for contact info) to follow-up.

I'm keeping a few microformats related to-do items here both for my own convenience, and for folks looking to help out with small tasks. If so, just create a new section with your name, and and maybe copy the item there, and put your name next to the item in my list. We'll figure this out as we go along.

* Find [[:Special:Lonelypages|orphaned]] pages, and add links to them.
 +
* Use [[templates]] for boilerplate text and repeated lists of links
 +
* Add keywords to the foot of pages (see [[vcard-suggestions]] for examples), so that they can be converted to tags, once this wiki allows the use of "rel" attributes. Keywords can also include synonyms to aid searching.
 +
 
 +
====Spelling====
 +
Per [[how-to-play]]: for English-language pages only: Find British spellings of common words and replace them with the US spellings per [[en-US]]. Mark such edits as "minor" with the comment: <nowiki>[[en-US]]</nowiki>. Please be careful to use and maintain proper native spelling of proper nouns (see [[how-to-play]] for details).
 +
 
 +
Here is a table of searches for some of the British-English spellings that have crept into English-language microformats wiki pages, along with their respective US-English spellings. If you find other British spellings, please feel free to add them to this table, with their US equivalent.

 +
 
 +
Brainstorm updates to the [[pocket-cheat-sheet]] to better enable [[social-network-portability]], or perhaps design a new '''social network portability pocket cheat sheet''' that specifically documents:
 +
* how to author/publish hCard user profiles - write this up in [[hcard-authoring]] first (see below) and then use that content.
 +
* how to author/publish hCard+XFN friends lists - write this up in [[hcard-xfn-authoring]] (see below) and then use that content.

 +
** notes/thoughts on hCard+XFN supporting friends list parsing captured here for now:
 +
*** do a full rel="me" bidirectional crawling within the domain - some sites' hCard supporting user profiles simply link to their hCard+XFN supporting friends lists with rel="me", and thus you will discover more pages with friends lists.
 +
**** E.g. Flickr's /people/username pages have hCard for the user and link to their /people/username/contacts page with rel="me" (on the "More..." link, though they could also add rel="me" to the number inside "Your contacts (592)"). Need to get them to support hCard+XFN on the contacts themselves.
 +
*** consider parsing within a friends list page, any links that are rel="next" and rel="prev" to iterate over the whole list.

** Perhaps [http://www.visibone.com/ Visibone] can be of some use? I can recommend their current products. --[[User:Gazza|Gazza]] 06:41, 7 Apr 2007 (PDT)
 +
* update cheatsheet to include new [[value-class-pattern]] uses
 +
* give feedback to Erin or ask for volunteers to create a new cheatsheet, iterate, print more to have on hand, fold, distribute.
 +
* discuss with [[User:Adactio]] and Hannah how to best create a UK/A4 version of the pocket cheatsheet
 +
** preferably well in advance of dConstruct 2008 so that local cheatsheets can be printed.

*** i.e. please focus first on open data rather than open source, e.g. start with [[hcard|hCards]] for all organizations returned from http://wiserearth.org/organization
 +
*** if the data is open you can always export it and consume it in any number of open source systems
 +
*** that's why open data is MUCH more important than open source
 +
*** adding open data (e.g. microformats) can be done by any HTML author (yes, you), whereas open sourcing requires programming expertise, resouces, support. do the simpler easier thing first (open data thru microformats) that will benefit more people sooner.
 +
*** if the data was open, anyone could rebuild an accessible version
 +
*** faqs / misconceptions:
 +
**** eschipul: @tantek - creating microformats is easier. consuming microformats is unfortunately not easier.
 +
***** A: If you think consuming microformats is not easier or hard etc., it may just be that you don't know how to do so easily, don't assume that you are an expert in something that you think is hard.  Rather, if you think something is hard, then assume others may know easier methods, and ''ask''  the community how one can do it more easily.  parsing in particular is something which is becoming easier and easier thanks to open source libraries like [[hkit|hKit]].
 +
** write essay on [[open-data-more-important-than-open-apis]] - and a shorthand URL too

*** obviously doing both is ideal, however, open data is a higher priority and given limited resources, open data should be implemented before open APIs.

+
==== in general ====
 +
===== plain language intros =====
 +
For [[hcard|hCard]], [[hcalendar|hCalendar]], [[hreview|hReview]], [[xoxo|XOXO]] to start with, write up:
 +
* brief plain-language intro at the top (say for example, something that a non-technical person like a member of the general media/press could read and understand), similar to or better than plain language intros on W3C specs.
 +
* followed by links to more plain-language resources, e.g. *-intro pages.
 +
In particular for [[xoxo|XOXO]], Angus McIntyre suggested:
 +
* As well as a syntactic example, examples of use would be useful.
 +
* when I might want to use XOXO.
 +
* Some simple examples right upfront would probably do a lot to help users figure out whether a particular microformat is for them or not.
 +
These suggestions could be incorporated into the other specs as well.
 +
===== exploratory discussions =====
 +
* update [[exploratory-discussions]] with critical microformats as "active"
 +
===== CSS enhancements for =====
 +
Analyze existing microformats for opportunities to enhance CSS and propose to W3C.
 +
* e.g. CSS datetime presentation (need to add links to my earlier work in CSS working group)
 +
* brainstorm additional possibilities for better presentation of content using existing microformats.
 +
===== update affiliations =====
 +
* Start a minimal draft/spec style guide using outline of most readable/accessible spec so far
 +
* Reference http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#Editors for how to manage affiliations
 +
* Update affiliations on [[hcard]], [[hcalendar]], [[hreview]], etc. per http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#Editors

How does who determine the status of work going through some stage of the process?  When does a format move from draft to "full spec"?  Who decides?  What are the qualitative and quantitative features that characterize work in different stages, especially as a spec nears deployment as "full spec".  What makes this pronouncement more than a mythical blessing?  What quantitative analyses can be provided to validate deployment?  Today, we have powerful agents capable of processing huge amounts of information on the web.  Should we be using these to measure published marketshare?  What role should tools and test suites play in deploying microformats?

Current revision

Contents

This page is for posting microformats related shared to do items. If you want to use this page for your microformats related to-do items, create a section with your name on it. The reason we are keeping these all on the same page is to make it easier to tell when people are working on similar things, and to make it more obvious when people help out with other people's tasks. In theory this probably won't scale, but let's first see how it does in practice. :) - Tantek

microformats2 updates

The following pages need to be updated to for microformats2 (typically code, examples, and any specific format advice)

wiki gardening

trim fixups

Search for all uses of "tr.im" for shortlinks and replace them with "ufs.cc/w/" links that just use the pagename.

In particular, let's document old tr.im links and (unlinked) and where they used to link to so that if someone *searches* for tr.im URLs to figure out what happened to them, there's a chance they'll find the equivalent.

simplify pages

Review pages, from the Main Page on down and:

Examples of simplified pages:

Pages to simplify:

remove broken URLs

There's lots of links to sites that are now gone (see site-deaths on IWC for a full list).

It'd be useful if we replaced them where possible with links to archive.org or equivalent.

TODO (mark as done when done):

incorporate things expected to break

shortlink spec

The rel=shortlink spec:

is going to die soon as part of Google Code's shutdown.

1. We should copy that spec (along with FAQ for the first few valid questions/comments) to rel-shortlink, moving existing contents there to supplementary pages or purely historical record.

2. Get http://purl.org/net/shortlink to redirect to rel-shortlink instead.

Spelling

Per how-to-play: for English-language pages only: Find British spellings of common words and replace them with the US spellings per en-US. Mark such edits as "minor" with the comment: [[en-US]]. Please be careful to use and maintain proper native spelling of proper nouns (see how-to-play for details).

Here is a table of searches for some of the British-English spellings that have crept into English-language microformats wiki pages, along with their respective US-English spellings. If you find other British spellings, please feel free to add them to this table, with their US equivalent.

Admins

This section is for folks to suggest to-do items for admins, in particular, having to do with suggestions for improvements to microformats.org infrastructure such as the wiki. If you do add an item to this list, please sign your username with four tildes: ~~~~.

Admins check this "inbox" periodically and process and move items to admin-to-do.

Please check admin-to-do to see if there is already an ongoing task item relating to your request. Otherwise add the item below.

Wiki improvements

Tantek

I'm keeping microformats related to-do items here both for my own convenience, and for folks looking to help out. - Tantek.

overall priority ordering

  1. Protect the community from threats (wiki damage, mailing list pain or noise), repair damage, add measures to reduce future damage
  2. Update microformats2-parsing with resolved microformats2-parsing-issues
  3. Help implementers with established microformats
  4. Iterate on existing established microformats, resolve issues/feedback etc.
  5. Wiki cleanup/gardening for existing established microformats
  6. Site usability of microformats.org top-down as an entry point
  7. Community dynamics, process and principles improvements to help guide new microformats developments
  8. Wrap up classic microformats documentation
  9. Document microformats history.
  10. Other

protect the community

Update microformats2-parsing with resolved microformats2-parsing-issues

help implementers

Update all these tasks for microformats2:

wiki cleanup

Update all these tasks for microformats2:

for all microformat specs

Next-actions:

update specification section organization

Goal: greater approachability/readability of microformats specs by a broader audience.

Reference:

Next-actions:

  1. contact microformats community members who are content/tutorial authors, and/or have written (or are writing) technical books, and those who have made concrete helpful suggestions for reorganizing the information architecture / content-order / layout of specs.
  2. figure out if the new intro/headers etc. structure/order in hCard, hReview, and hResume is an improvement, and if it could be better. Document reasoning/requirements for intro/header and other sections.
    • Shorter tends to be better
    • Must be comprehensive enough to "print and read"
    • Must detail authorship/editorship
    • Must detail copyright/patent statements
  3. Design an iterative update to spec organization, in particular, the introduction/boilerplate/headers.
  4. Write up a template - make it self-documenting per the requirements
  5. Update existing specifications with the new intro/headers structure.
    1. hCard
    2. hCalendar
    3. hReview
  6. Write up methodology behind the section organization and note editors lessons learned into an editors-guide page (what other variants were done before, in which specs, and note problems/complaints with other variants).

reorganizing Implementations sections

Hmmm... I like: Authoring, Browsing, Converting, Indexing, Libraries (for developers), and Potential (for open source projects we want to add support to). Anybody have alternative suggestions for this vocabulary? I don't have a particularly strong preference so I'm going to go with these four until I find examples that don't fit, or someone suggests something better.

See: hCalendar Implementations for a first attempt at this. Assuming folks like that, we can go ahead with categorizing the implementations sections of other microformats specifications.

Next-actions:

reorg Examples in the Wild sections

Work with community to:

site usability

Update all these tasks for microformats2:

help with microformat examples in the wild

Using the above updated authoring pages, get the community to help go over all "common" pages (both logged out and logged in states) of the following sites which have some microformats already, and verify each page is as microformatted as it can be with high fidelity hCalendar and hCard etc. Document full support of each implementation's microformats on the implementations page (perhaps create a separate page for each implementation, e.g. flickr, upcoming, eventful etc.) Document any exceptions as needed. In no particular order:

For hCard, hCalendar, hReview, XOXO to start with, write up:

In particular for XOXO, Angus McIntyre suggested:

Hey Chris. Congrats on Microsyntax ("Stowe Boyd launches Microsyntax.org"). So ... do we need a page on this Microformats wiki describing the connection between microformats and microsyntax?

Wiki-Thon Proposal

Set aside several hours (probably a Friday night US PST) for focused work on the Wiki, including both physical (e.g., a room in the Bay Area) and virtual (IRC/iChat) participants.

Goals

  1. Improve understanding of what needs to be done for Wiki
    • IMHO - this should be done here, in to-do incrementally. -Tantek
  2. Tackle larger projects (~1-2 hours) than people usually have time for
    • I'd like to see these projects *documented* first on to-do before we spend 1-2 hours of a bunch of folk's collective time to go through them. -Tantek
  3. Motivate community to have fun with otherwise tedious "housecleaning" chores

Agenda (Wishlist)

In parallel:

Dan Connolly

DanC hopes to sync up on these tasks in irc roughly weekly, during Wednesday afternoon (Chicago time) "office hours". See also my esw todo list and someday pile.

Expore Microformat Deployment Issues

How does who determine the status of work going through some stage of the process? When does a format move from draft to "full spec"? Who decides? What are the qualitative and quantitative features that characterize work in different stages, especially as a spec nears deployment as "full spec". What makes this pronouncement more than a mythical blessing? What quantitative analyses can be provided to validate deployment? Today, we have powerful agents capable of processing huge amounts of information on the web. Should we be using these to measure published marketshare? What role should tools and test suites play in deploying microformats?

Vocabulary

A lot of knowledge work is about maintaining sets of vocabulary. Now that the vocabulary is emerging, it may be time start making sure everyone is "on the same page," especially since some of the language is highly symbolic. Terms:

Creators

_Concession_: my plans involve reuse of code, which would involve non-compatible changes with the current inline model. This is a nice feature, so maybe I should be branching instead.

Information Architecture

Help Welcomed! Please leave your name Add complaints to wiki-feedback! Helping to make the wiki easier to use. I'd like to see the main page more towards a format like http://simile.mit.edu/solvent/ with the big questions right out front:

I'd like to change the front page to this kind of design.

Support Pages

There are several categories of things in the wiki. Can we enumerate them?

Can others agree and or refine this list? Should I take it to the -discuss list? How do we create consensus on how the wiki should be organized in order to make it more usable? And how can we turn that consensus into actionable changes?

The wiki should also capture wisdom that stems from discussions that don't produce microformats. For example, Chris Messina suggests a "Best Of" page suitable for capturing this kind of wisdom. I think we can think of a given microformat as being at a place in a spectrum that ranges from "not yet thought of", to "interesting but needs work," or even "rejected", and of course including all the stages familiar to the microformats processes (eg examples, brainstorming, etc...). If there were such a page would it:

(I think Chris Messina suggests that it belongs to a given microformat, but then how do we collect wisdom from non-microformats?)

Considering that the wiki page named with the microformat (i.e. /wiki/hcard) is the one that people will mostly likely look to first for learning about a particular format, I'd think it'd make more sense and create a more welcoming feel to convert these pages to an intro page introducing the format for the beginner and linking to resources like tutorials and creators. Spec pages would then be relocated to wiki/*-spec -- Cgriego 13:25, 16 Oct 2006 (PDT)

Mike Schinkel's Comments

My suggestion on the list was for us to use a convention that the entry page (i.e. http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard) would be an index into a list of (psuedo) standardized sub pages so that it would be very people to find what is important to them. For example, is a list of potential sub pages:

These pages would be located respectively at

Please note I am suggesting an architecture not a specific list of sub pages. The list of sub pages should be defined by both reviewing existing information during site reorganization, and then via discussion on the list in an attempt to discover and extract which sub pages are needed for most/all microformats.

NOTE: This differs from above in that the spec if not viewed as a top level structure but instead the microformat itself and the spec would be under the microformat. In this context "microformat" is a more abstract concept and "spec" is a more concrete thing. Another way to think about it would be that each microformat would have it's own mini home page and then things like "spec" are the pages listed on its home page.
