Dear Core CIF DMG,

The Core CIF review is now in progress. As advised previously, I propose running through the core categories one by one and collecting any updates. The main discussion will occur in an IUCr forum created especially for this purpose: the URL is http://forums.iucr.org/viewforum.php?f=34

Furthermore, the changing dictionary can be viewed at the Github COMCIFS repository, URL https://github.com/COMCIFS/cif_core/blob/master/cif_core.dic

The first category off the rank is ATOM_SITE. I have posted a topic with this heading to the forum and now invite you to read over all the datanames in the ATOM_SITE category in search of potential updates. Please pay particular attention to enumerated lists to see if any of the enumerations need to be expanded. I suggest that we spend no more than 3 weeks focussing on each category; moving onto a new category does not preclude continuing discussions on previous categories. Likewise, you are more than welcome to start a discussion on a different category ahead of time - just make sure that the subject heading of your forum post contains the category name.

Finally and importantly, in parallel we are approving a DDLm version of the core dictionary. A link to the DDLm dictionary containing the ATOM_SITE category is given at the top of the forum ATOM_SITE post. In reading over the DDLm dictionary, you will find the materials from last years' CIF dictionary workshop very useful: they are available at https://www.dropbox.com/home/COMCIFS_Workshop/workshop-folder. The most relevant sections are 08, 09, 15 and 16. An in-browser Javascript application for executing dREL methods found in the DDLm dictionaries has been developed and should be made available shortly.

best wishes,
James Hester
