Hi all

The first focus group will center around a topic the any of us working 
in the Public Sector would invariably come across: Publishing 
information using PDF Files.

*What we are after

    * Good "how*-*to" guides
    * links to, or (approved for release to the group) copies of, online
      or in-house agency/.gov.* best practices, publishing guides,
      standards or policy concerning PDF file creation/publishing that
      you or your agency uses, or that you know of
    * Case studies - even if you can just identify someone who is "doing
      it right"
    * Anything on metadata in PDF files
    * Discussion or any of the above (known from here on as "etc")
      concerning lesser known PDF types such as PDF/A and PDF/UA
    * Thoughts etc around accessibility issues
    * Thoughts etc about archiving and retrieval
    * Thoughts etc about PDF and how they work with linked data/semantic web
    * Thoughts etc about legacy PDF types - how they should be dealt
      with, conversion issues, etc
      THE ISSUE OF PDF FILES! :) The above is not intended to be exhaustive.

Feel free to contribute to the over discussion, raise topics, post 
links, add to the project wiki - however you'd like to get involved. 
/Participation in this focus group by industry leaders or policy drivers 
is encouraged! If you or your agency/business are one of these, jump in! 
If you know someone like this, pass this message and forward us their
