I haven't heard people requesting an extra group call so we are  
planning to hold next one on the 22nd at the usual time.

I think it's not so urgent but I would like to see this done by the  
first week of September.
It's something we could try to present at the O'Reilly events if any  
of us can make it.

Thanks for volunteering.

Kevin, John and me and several others within the W3C Team have been  
recently discussing about the need of approach this from two POVs:  
policy people and technical people taking into account social and  
technology aspects.

I wouldn't like this one to go into much technical detail if at all.  
We'll have an OGD TF to deal with those soon. So no need to have deep  
SW knowledge. You might want someone else to take a look though. Maybe  
Rick or George?

I think we need to stay high level and keep it to 1-2 pages, point to  
other relevant resources (TimBL's, upcoming OGD TF) where needed.

I'm also copying Rachel. It might be helpful to have some set of  
requirements like the ones AnneW referred to recently before  
developing any deliverable (target audience, etc.)
