START OF SESSION ON STATISTICAL DATA

To change throughout - rss-cb -> cb

dc:creator

Switch to dc:publisher

dc:date

Need second date as per other feed types.

dc:title

Clarify in user note that this is for humans, not for parsers. The values will all be reflected in atomic elements.

First two characters of the title will be the 2-char ISO country code of the publisher's country.

e.g. US USD->CAD 1.1249 2006-08-14 NY Fed noon buying

dc:publisher

Determined by source, e.g. FRBNY

NEW

New atomic element for 2-char ISO code for country (as per start of title)

add <link> to list (it's only in the example)

In the example, make the <link> value the same as the "about" attribute. Make it unique. Add a note on how to do this (e.g. anchor tags).

Take dc:format out of the example

User guide note: if all currencies are stored on the same page, use anchors (fake if necessary) to ensure that all LINKs are unique. e.g. cb.xx/fx.html#CAD

Aggregator note: If the <LINK> tag is already in our DB, REPLACE the existing data instead of inserting it. This is how we tell between currency rates (one active only at a time) and persistent records.


INTEREST RATES

See changes above to common fields - title etc

title

Change example to October 13

NEW

Add cb:seriesIdentifier - this is the code of the statistical time series, as used by publishing institution. e.g. StatsCan identifier
