We heard from Prashant Rahulkar about the aspects of the Toolbox that he is interested in working on.
Then we moved to next steps in the process.
Rieks then discussed the generation of a Human Readable Glossary (HRG) formatted in HTML, from an MRG. A simple version would constitute of setting up the header and footer info in an HTML file, building the capability of converting an arbitrary MRG entry into an appropriate HTML format, using that on the (alphabetically sorted set of) entries from the MRG, and then concatenating header, sorted entries and footer into a single file. For the very first version of the HRG tool, term references may be ignored, to be resolved in a subsequent version.
Nicky Hickman next brought up the possibility of a tool that could analyze a proposed document, such as a white paper, to create a list of the key terms and then create an up-front mini-glossary that can help the reader orient to the content of the paper.
Nicky proposed another Terminology Toolbox V2 feature, which would be the ability to import into a glossary all the terms associated with a particular mental model. Rieks said that this is being thought of, and there are various ways that this could be accomplished. It should not necessarily be all that difficult, but will be deferred until after we can create glossaries (MRG and HRG). Nicky said that would be really useful because "you start with the pattern".
Our next meeting falls on July 4th, which is a holiday in the U.S.—and Rieks will also be on holiday. So our next meeting will be Monday July 18.
DECISION: No meeting on 4 July 2022 due to holidays.
