Hi Alistair,

Yes, GEMET work is stalled at the moment. We just respond when someone wants a copy of it.

About SKOS: It certainly has grown since I last looked at it. 

I'm surprised the altSymbol has foaf:Image as range. The Image class in http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/ seems more appropiate. After all, Dublin Core elements are more likely to be known by thesauri developers than FOAF.

There are other references to FOAF. To me FOAF is not a useful way to refer to person information. It lacks a class for OrganizationalRole (allthough Agent could be abused for that), and persons can't have affiliation, post-in-organization, telephone, postal address or jobtitle.

In addition, FOAF seems rather unstable as a specification to rely on. 

Sincerely yours / Med venlig hilsen, Søren Roug <soren.roug@eea.eu.int>

|| Hi Soren,
|| It was good to finally meet you in Amsterdam :)  I remember 
|| you said you weren't working directly on GEMET in SKOS any 
|| more (is that right ?), but anyway I'd like to ask you if 
|| you have any comments or suggestions regarding the recently 
|| published first public working draft editions of the SKOS 
|| Core Guide [1], Quick Guide to Publishing a Thesaurus on the 
|| Semantic Web [2] and SKOS Core Vocabulary Specification [3] 
|| It would be great if you could send any comments before June 
|| 30th.  All comments should be sent to the 
|| public-esw-thes@w3.org mailing list.  We have a second 
|| review scheduled for 17th July, after which we'll publish 
|| revised working drafts.
|| I'd be extremely grateful if you could pass this request for 
|| comments on to any other colleagues who might be interested. 
|| Thanks,
|| Alistair.
