Hi, I understand if you're busy to respond to my earlier question, but I wanna try again. Is there any resource on the relationship between the frictionless data specs and the dublin core metadata initiative? Am I correct in understanding that I can extend frictionlessdata with dublin core?

Is there a certain way the frictionlessdata specs/project should be cited? Just the homepage, i.e. http://frictionlessdata.io/ ?

@Kenji-K hi. There is some discussion on a pattern of name spacing as a way to extend with other metadata schemes, such as Dublin Core, but there is no specific resource on this

frictionlessdata/specs#403

Hi @hgossler that sounds correct, or a specific spec URL if relevant.

@serahrono @jobarratt

I suggest we close down the frictionlessdata/project repo. It is only used for the issue tracker at https://github.com/frictionlessdata/project/issues but #359 should be on the specs issue tracker, #360 is a duplicate of #332 which should be on the website issue tracker, and #358 should also be on the website issue tracker. @serahrono can you do this as part of your work on the website please.

Hey there! I am using tabulator-py for remote source in xls format, source location is https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist_xls/RBRTEd.xls. Somehow it converts date incorrecly from5/20/1987 to 31917.0. Is there anything I need to do to make it valid date?

@Mikanebu could you please create an issue? Or may be even PR? Excel's dates related - frictionlessdata/implementations#23

So I'm trying to create a source descriptor for datapackage-pipelines, and I get this error Can't find 'Generator' identifier in <module> ... so I think there's a problem with my module but I can't figure it out

@rufuspollock do you know where the term 'frictionless data' was first used? Is there a blog post or something that marks the begging of using this to describe the work we are doing?

Hmm, i know we were using it in 2013 or before but i'm not sure about posts - i will think more.

@pwalsh I will put my thoughts forward as I attempt to utilize the existing metadata schemes. I'm still in my project's early infancy.
