Proposal to register CNCF persistent identifier namespace


Noel MacLochlainn
 

Hello TOC,

I wish to ask the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee to consider registering CNCF as a persistent identifier namespace on the Web.

Web applications dealing with Linked Data often need URLs that are very stable. Registering CNCF as a persistent identifier namespace allows member projects to leverage the service to register their own sub-namespaces, vocalabaries, and glossaries. For example, CNCF projects publish their vocabulary at: https://w3id.org/cncf/<project>, and potentially in machine readable format in future. The following are examples of persistent identifiers namespaces which could be used today.


The use cases and business value is derived from W3C Linked Data initiatives, and makes CNCF data more accessible on the Semantic Web.

Since I am not TOC member I hope someone on the committee might pick up on this proposal and have it discussed at TOC.

kind regards
