Hi Steve,

Yes, my impression is that tags are meant to not change.  I am making any new changes to the UML model in trunk.

But in the case of adding gsml:shape to RC1, for purely pragmatic reasons (ie, having a useable schema available right now for testing) I have made the gsml:shape edit to the schema docs without going through a new RC of the UML.  Technically, that is a no-no, but going through a new RC process right now is not possible.

All the other manual edits to the RC1 schemas so far (eg; fixing swe:Quantity properties) have been because our UML->XML processing of the UML model was incorrect.  So the RC1 tag UML model does not need to be changed to match those schema changes.

  Shouldn't we be making schema changes to a rc2 in trunk for GeoSciML
in subversion?  I thought the idea of the tag directory was that things
are locked once they get tagged (broken or not...). Probably we
shouldn't be putting release candidates in the tag directory anyway?
Maybe some subversion gurus could give us some guidance here (or set me
straight at least)?
