Thanks Cameron

Scott - I think we need to spend some time mapping out how "glossaries"
interact with specifications - and make sure we start off with linking
specification writing processes into terminology management - both as a
consumer and producer.

for the broader community, OGC is looking to leverage OAS (Swagger)
self-documentation capabilities - but at this stage we dont have a specific
project looking at how to link terminology and API and specification
processes together optimally, and if there are folk out there who feel
willing able and/or expert enough to comment on this any input would
be appreciated, and IMHO a best practice should be a key output of this
documentation project
