General Best Practices in Open Data

Currently we have many standards that are addressing various types of specific issues in regards to Open Data but there doesn’t seem to be a generalized best practices guide. We would like to review many of the standards that exist or are being created and discuss what some of those generalized practices might be and define common vocabulary.
