* <strong class="entry-title">hCalendar instead of dateline?</strong> Would an [[hCalendar]] event (which can contain an hCard location) make sense for a dateline, or is the 'date' part more often omitted?
 
** Confusingly, the journalistic term "dateline" isn't anything to do with a date or time.  It is the location from which a report is filed and is generally the main location associated with a story.  Generally, a dateline consists of a city (e.g. "Rome") but could be the name of a ship at sea or even a space station.

<div class="entry-content discussion issues">
 
* <strong class="entry-title">hCard instead of geo?</strong>  Is geo really in use here, or would using an hCard (that can contain geo) be a better way of representing locations referred to in the story, as more human readable?
 
** The reason for geo being highlighted (as an optional field) is to promote at least one location identifier in the story--preferably the most appropriate single location on a map for that particular story.  Geo does not have to be related to dateline, but in some [http://labs.ap.org/wiki/hNews examples] we've worked on, we show the two collapsed into a single field. --[[User:JonathanMalek|JonathanMalek]] 23:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
** For locations referred to in the story, I agree--publishers should be using [[hCard]] with the contained geo to markup the locations themselves.  One of the concepts I've struggled with is drawing an admittedly arbitrary line between the metadata ''about'' a story from the metadata ''within'' a story.  For the former, we've focused on simplicity and minimalism, primarily as a means to encourage adoption.  That has meant preferring [[rel-tag]] over in-line entity extraction and markup using compound microformats.  For the latter, we feel that the field is open: use whatever microformat fits your purpose, however you can--the more, the better.  This lets publishers with minimal technology capabilities at least get started by tweaking a few templates in their CMS, while those more technically inclined aren't limited by the simplicity of the format to a paucity of data. --[[User:JonathanMalek|JonathanMalek]] 23:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

* <strong class="entry-title">What is item-license?</strong>  Using [[rel-license]] presumably?
 
** We're working off the [[licensing-brainstorming#item_as_container|licensing-brainstorming]] discussions for this.  Our concern with [[rel-license]] was its definition as applying to an entire page, rather than an item within a page.  The current discussions around licensing definitely address that. --[[User:JonathanMalek|JonathanMalek]] 00:02, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
