h1. 20120816 Requirements Questions
We need to answer some key requirements questions first, so we can evaluate alternatives.
- Are Forums related to Annotations?

h2. Are Forums related to Annotations
We suggested so in the London discussion from a year ago.
But I think Dominic's latest thinking is that they are totally independent. This means that a Data Version cannot result directly from a discussion

- h2. Should Forums be stored in RDF or in RDBMS?
- related Req Items:
04.SOCIALNET.R3: When posts (contributions) are made within a social networking tool, the information should be stored in the RDF store if that information enriches the store of cultural heritage data and information stored there.
04.SOCIALNET.R4: when scholars are contributing to a general discussion, they should have the opportunity of saving the whole blog, discussion or wiki as an annotation with the appropriate associations or relationships in the RDF store
-- In addition to "RDF not RDBMS", these items also point out that "Forums are related to Annotations"
-- But they don't answer the question how to transition from unstructured (discussion) to structured (APs and new values)
-- - Vlado: I feel storing all data in RDF is better, since it keeps the door open for unified search and various kinds of integrations
-- But it's unlikely we'll find a ready feature-rich Forum storing in RDF. In that case we'd need to retarget it
-- If we decide to use RDBMS, I think we should use the same one as Nuxeo (Postgres), though that might be going away
- What features are we looking for in a forum?
-- Functionality, such as editing/adding/filtering/threading...
-- Compatibility with current tools
--- Must use the same rich text editor, so semantic links would work
--- Possibility to retarget it to an RDF store
