Hi all,

I'd like to suggest we focus some attention on several issues to do with the central stuff in SKOS, like the skos:Concept class, the SKOS labelling properties and the SKOS semantic relation properties. 

This would help us to fill out some of the earlier parts of the SKOS Semantics wiki draft [1]. The wiki draft has only one section so far, on grouping constructs, and so looks a bit empty :) This would also help the discussion of other issues, such as the relationships between labels.

There are three central issues in the tracker we could look at:

 * [ISSUE-31] "BasicLexicalLabelSemantics" - defining the semantics of the three basic labelling properties, skos:prefLabel, skos:altLabel and skos:hiddenLabel
 * [ISSUE-44] "BroaderNarrowerSemantics" - defining the semantics of skos:broader and skos:narrower
 * [ISSUE-54] "ConceptSemantics" - defining the semantics of skos:Concept 

Issue 31 is already open. Issues 44 and 54 need to be opened (I just raised 54).

Of course we should also continue the very valuable discussion of other issues and work to our requirements document!

Cheers,

Alistair.
