The specs have been fully covered, and at the same time related and compared to similar initiatives, such as the formal model for annotations of digital content developed by Agosti et al. or the Sane model by Peter Boot.

In this way the development of the services during the bootcamp was always confronted with official specs, so to never lost adherence with them.

A parallel activity, not direclty related to the main development activities, but always related to the scope of Interedition, has been the discussions and the related exchange of knowledge, in particular with Gregor Midell and Wendell Piez, of the recent trends in dealing in overlapping in markup.

4. Successful integrations...

5. Any recommendations for future bootcamps?

The Interedition Bootcamp is always a great opportunity for sharing knowledge and working together. Probably what could help is a light planning to take place some days before the actual meeting, so to coordinate better the efforts of the different people, such as an interests and skills list, the arguments
