Please Send OWL 2 Implementation Reports (today!)

If you've been working on an OWL 2 implementation, please send us e-mail
about it, to help the Working Group, W3C management, and (eventually)
the W3C Advisory Committee decide whether OWL 2 is ready to proceed
along the standards track to becoming a W3C Recommendation.  The e-mail
should go to public-owl-comments@w3.org (which has a public archive
[1]), and ideally should state the following:

   1.  Your name, affiliation, and (optionally) the names of other
       people who helped with the implementation.

   2.  The name of your system, a URL for its website (if any), and a
       one-sentence description.

   3.  Which profile(s) it implements (DL, EL, QL, RL, or Full).  We
       would appreciate some brief commentary about why you chose those
       profiles, and what sort of implementation techniques you are

   4.  Which semantics you implement (direct or rdf-based), and
       (optionally) why.

   5.  Do you believe your system currently conforms to the OWL 2
       Candidate Recommendation?  Does it pass all the test cases for
       your profile?  If not, which features does it lack and/or which
       test cases does it not yet pass?  Do you have plans to make it
       conformant, and make it pass all the test cases?

   6.  Did you implement the "at risk" features, owl:rational and
       rdf:XMLLiteral?  If not, do you intend to, or do you think we
       should remove them from OWL 2?

   7.  Finally, we'd appreciate your evaluation of whether the OWL 2
       Candidate Recommendation is ready to proceed along the standards
       track toward being a W3C Recommendation.  If not, please be sure
       to tell us what problems you think we need to address.

In some cases, much of this information is already present in our
implementations table [2], and you can consider this e-mail just a
request to verify/update that information.  To be sure our information
is correct and up to date, we would appreciate a brief e-mail, even if
the entry is accurate.   

A reply as soon as you read this would be helpful, and then please send
updates if anything changes.
