F. Acknowledgements

The SPARQL RDF Query Language is a product of the whole of the W3C RDF
Data Access Working Group, and our thanks for discussions, comments and
reviews go to all present and past members.

In addition, we have had comments and discussions with many people
though the working group comments list.  All comments go to making a
better document.  Andy would also like to particularly thank Geoff
Chappell, Bob MacGregor, Yosi Scharf and Richard Newman for exploring
specific issues related to SPARQL. Eric would like to acknowledge the
invaluable help of Bj�rn Hoehrmann.
