It was created for the old webont working group, thus has not *yet*  
had anything to do with the new OWL-WG. Most working groups have a  
members list and a public comments list. I don't believe the W3C team  
(and certainly not the group) have decided whether to reuse public- 
webont-comments, or to have a public-owl-comments (similar to public- 
owl-wg) list (though I didn't check). Public-owl-dev is a general  
purpose list for discussion everything owl.

I think for a great while you are perfectly safe posting to public- 
owl-dev. That's where OWL 1.1 feedback was requested to be sent, and,  
as I said, I don't see that the wg has requested otherwise yet. Many  
wg members actively monitor public-owl-dev (as you know) so even when  
there is a more specific list, nothing should be lost by posting  
here. When last call working draft calls are circulated, they will  
contain directions for where to post your formal last call comments  
such that they are sure to "count" in the last call review process.  
Last call of *any* document is at least, I'd guess, 6 months off, so  
no worries.

I also (speaking still as me, though a me who is a member of the wg,  
but not *on behalf* of the wg) hope we'll keep an "open to the world"  
issues list for people to propose issues through.

I'll also take this quick opportunity to thank you for your close and  
challenging review. Your various comments and discussions are most  
definitely helping make the documents stronger.
