Comments on the SPARQL set of specifications are still welcome and yes, 
work is still ongoing. Be advised though that we are chewing through a 
bit of an e-mail backlog so responses to comments by the working group 
may take some time.

This mailinglist is the appropriate place for feedback to the Data 
Access Working Group, specifically regarding the current SPARQL specs 
(protocol, query language, and result format). For discussion/more 
general issues, I think the Semantic Web mailinglist 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/) is a good place.

The Working Group's internal discussion mailinglist is publicly 
available (read-only) as well, archives at

I think the Semantic Web list I mentioned is a good place for further 
discussion on this.
