during the pyDelphin discussion yesterday, we ended up looking for
documentation on the data model that [incr tsdb()] inherited from the
original TSNLP (Test Suites for Natural Language Processing) project.

i am happy to report that DELPH-IN maintains an archive of large parts
of the original TSNLP web and ftp(1) servers:


some of the links regrettably are broken, e.g. to interactive TSNLP
services or ftp(1) download statistics.  but the three-volume TSNLP
manual and publications from the project remain accessible.

as pyDelphin (or other DELPH-IN tools) re-engineer the tsdb(1)
database layer and manipulation of [incr tsdb()] profiles, i imagine
parts of the TSNLP manual may still contain useful information:


finally, regarding some of the [incr tsdb()] terminology that came up
yesterday, e.g. ‘skeleton’ vs. ‘profile’, there are some definitions
in the [incr tsdb()] manual (Chapter 3 and Section 6.5):


archeologically yours, oe
