    • How do we do both adding vocabularies and reflecting the ldpaths in the context spreadsheet? Can't make progress with ISNI as no RDF available; Wikidata progress limited by data in API results; others complete on the spreadsheet. Steven has added a number of new issues that will require changes both in DAVE and in QA – Lynette will shepherd these though DAVE and QA. Top priorities are LCSH, LCGFT and Mesh
    • How do we deal with feedback when Sinopia goes live? Or how do we soft launch? – Possibilities for expectation management at the cohort meeting, how do we recruit people for testing and get good mechanism for feedback. ACTION - Lynette Rayleto put together a lookup status board.

Steven to suggest possibility of regular lookups update on Sinopia use group calls

The latter is perhaps better for taking advantage of reconciliation and promoting improved ways of working with linked data → Steven Folsom to try to get this question on the agenda for the "Sinopia and Share-VDE interaction" 2:15pm session, Lynette Raylewill also attend
