Dear all,

Apologies for absence & silence in recent weeks, I'm in the midst of an 
insane series of conferences and workshops.

The other groups that are, IMO, most closely related to CSVW are the 
Data on the Web Best Practices WG (which meets Thurs/Fri specifically so 
as not to overlap CSVW) and, we *hope*, the RDF Data Shapes WG. The 
charter for that is very close to being sent to members for approval and 
all being well it will meet at TPAC. I mention it specifically as it may 
be relevant to some of the conversion and validation work foreseen here. 
Assuming that CSV+ is semantically equivalent to a graph, RDS (RDF Data 
Shapes) will provide a way of validating that.
