Open Collaboration Services version 1.6 draft 1 - Forum component problem

Hi all,

It appears that my previous suggestion for version 1.6, the addition
of a "categories" call to the KnowledgeBase component has not been
performed, and the creation of a seperate "Forum" module has been done
instead. It appears that this module is mostly able to meet the
requirements of providing information about a tree of forums

Unfortunately, it appears that absolutely no method exists in the
specification as it is currently published on freedesktop.org to allow
the listing of topics for specific forum(s) only. Nor does any
recommendation exist in the documentation for which modules should be
used to create an implementation for a forum in the Forum module
documentation, if the KnowledgeBase module is not supposed to be used.

I suggest one of the two following solutions to this issue:

1) Add a type argument to knowledgebase/list and knowledgebase/add to
allow for choosing between either the "content" or "forum" components.
This would also modify the get call to knowledgebase/get call to
become /v1/knowledgebase/data/≤typeid>/<contentid>/

2) Add appropriate calls to the Forums component to replicate
knowledgebase/list, knowledgebase/add and knowledgebase/get for the
purpose of a forum.

As a type id already exists in the Comments module for the Forums
component, option 2 would be the most consistent option for the
specification, and assuming the xml output and url arguments of

Clarification of OCS specification - Comments & Person components

Hi all,

Just checking that my interpretation of the OCS Comments component is
correct, as what "contentid" and "contentid2" are is not defined....

In my implementation for the forums ( using type 4 - forum ) I used
"contentid" as the category id and "contentid2" as the knowledgebase
With no prior examples to base this off, is this correct & compliant

Also, for the Person component, is the "personid" what is going to be
displayed by applications ( user in both Comments and Knowledgebase )?
