First, it is worth nothing that these are not "yours[mine]/Danny's
definitions": These definitions are provided by Dublin Core, and we'd be
best served by adhering to the definitions and most common interpretation
Pepys' Diary provides both a good example and a bad example simultaneously.
Good in that it raises a number the issues well, bad in that one of the
issues it raises is tied to that of re-publishing or perhaps what one might
call true syndication and depends, of course, on one's interpretation of
re-publishing, syndication, and their relation to the effort going on at
pepysdiary.com. I say "bad" only because such re-publishing or syndication
may or may not be within the scope and definition of the Dublin Core terms
we're considering, and as a result may or may not affect potential
In terms of pepysdiary.com, my understanding would be that issued would be
the timestamp for the moment at which pepysdiary.com published an excerpt
from the diary. Created would be used to indicate the original creation date
for the content being posted, 1660/08/07, for example.
