At the not-quite-a-meeting on IRC #swig 16th Feb around
 http://www.ilrt.bris.ac.uk/discovery/chatlogs/swig/2005-02-16#T18-40-10
there was discussion of the tentative plan to make the Turtle work I did
into a SWIG note.  It hasn't been mentioned here so far, so let me give
some background.

Turtle is something that people are already using as well as being used
by DAWG and SWBPD WG in their specifications and it has multiple
implementations (specifically for Turtle).  The suggestion was that this
would be good to have in W3C space as at then least the WGs would then
have something they can refer to in www.w3.org space with more
confidence than an external web site.  Which I can change at any time :)

The suggestion was made that this could be a Semantic Web Interest Group
(SWIG) note, something the SWIG hasn't done before.  It would slightly
raise the profile of Turtle and encourage feedback, and I would expect
such a note to be revised (the process I'm not so clear here). 

The general idea would be to pretty much publish what I have written so
far as it has been quite stable for some time, with Tim down as co-
author/editor, as long as he agrees.  I made a slightly more W3C TR-
style version of Turtle under DAWG web space at:
  http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/df1/
but it's pretty much the same as the original:
  http://www.ilrt.bris.ac.uk/discovery/2004/01/turtle/

In terms of changes, I want to add """triple quotes""" but haven't had
the time to get into the detail of what's allowed inside according to
the specs, and what various implementations do.  I'm prepared to leave
that until after a first note pub.

Thoughts/comments?

Dave
