We in the Bioclipse project (www.bioclipse.net) are working for as
much Moby interoperability as possible in our next version. As
Bioclipse is a workbench where people can download and edit
resources, we had an interesting discussion today how Moby objects
(with ID and NAMESPACE) are treated with respect to modifications.
Let's say I download a sequence from Genbank, and store it on my
local computer. The question was how a modification to this resource
should be handled. We considered having some sort of flag for this,
or maybe a 'revision' or 'version' parameter, but wanted to hear your
view on this matter.
I'd also like to make a humble request that someone elaborated on the
use of LSID in Moby, and related this to the REST approach when it
comes to services, resources, and versioning of these.
