Hi Angus,
Thanks John for the pointer to the group's main wiki page.

The URL of the most recent Best Practices document for Linked Data is here.[1]  The status of the document is that it is being published as a W3C Working Group Note.  It has gone through a preliminary level of peer review by the Government Linked Data Working Group members.  

The editors are fleshing out the Note with 10-steps to publishing government data for better discovery, access and re-use AND a friendlier, practical advice on URI Design Principles and policy for persistent identifiers.  We expect the Best Practices Note to be completed this summer as there is considerable interest by people doing this type of work internationally.

If there is any specific guidance you'd like to see, we'll willing to consider it to ensure that the document is both relevant & timely to people involved in both the publication & consumption of high quality open government data published as LOD.
