I have some questions about the minimum criteria for the “National Laws” dataset. The methodology says:
But it says nothing about whether or not the content of the laws must me structured and machine readable (e.g. having each section broken down into elements in XML, such as in the MetaLex, Akoma Ntoso, LexML and Legislation.gov.uk projects), or if having just the metadata machine readable and the content as unstructured text is enough.
Another question is about the bulk download availability. Does this apply just to the metadata, or is it necessary to include all the content of the laws as well?
I think this should be clarified before the review process begins.
