13:29 mtholder Hi Jim, the latest commit to https://github.com/OpenTreeOfLife/treenexus/tree/example-annotations has the isLeaf annotations. I can normalize the "choose me' and "delete me" tags to ot:candidateTreeForSynthesis and ot:notIntendedForSynthesis flags, but I have not done that yet.
13:38 jimallman mtholder: Yes, that would be cool for converting the existing studies. I'm planning to make the UI pretty tolerant of missing values as well, so the absence of ot:notIntendedForSynthesis would be interpreted as 'false'.
14:06 jimallman mtholder: on a related note, I'm planning to add an "empty" Nexson template for use when creating a new study. This would contain top-level properties and core metadata, but not much else. Probably also templates for one tree, one file, etc. Would you rather provide these on the server side? I figured client-side code would work, and any major changes to Nexson (or its metadata) would probably be reflected in both client- and server-
14:07 jimallman code.
14:15 mtholder Good question.  We have some pretty simple NexSON files as tests in the nexson-validator subdir of the api... repo. I could strip one of those to the minimum.
14:16 mtholder the import may need to be a bit of a wizard-type interface. 1. enter a doi, 2. upload a file or provide a URL, then wait while the server chews on that and creates an initial NexSON representation of the data.
15:06 jimallman ah yes, i recall we agreed in Wednesday's call that this would be a server-side job.
15:07 jimallman in the event that someone has no DOI or other starting info, you might need to provide a truly empty nexson template.
