Hi Mark,

What I'm suggesting re planning for SKOS is that we focus on developing the SKOS Core proposals list [1], in its current form, up to Jan 31 2006, which is the scheduled end of the current WG charter.  If at Jan 31 2006, or sometime before then, we find out that the WG is getting a 2 month extension, then we can talk about scheduling a 3rd review, and at that time pick those items from the list that have good consensus for consideration at that review, in the same way we did for previuos reviews.  Whatever items remain open on the proposals list at the end of the current WG charter become input to the next WG charter.

I.e. the inputs to the next WG are: the latest WD of the SKOS Core Guide and the SKOS Core Vocab Spec, and "open" items from the SKOS Core Proposals list.

Cheers,

Al.
