I have an action to start aggressively pushing the review of test cases
via the RDFa community mailing lists. Reviewing these test cases via the
telecons is time consuming and takes up valuable time that could be used
to work on new features or discuss various design changes.

Each week (around Wednesday or Thursday), I will introduce a number of
test cases in a call for review. It would be great if the community
could help us review the tests. A review by at least 4 RDFa Task Force
members will be mandatory, so if the list hasn't received at least 4
reviews by RDFa Task Force members, I'll start pestering those that
haven't replied.

A review doesn't have to be complicated or verbose, for example if Test
Cases 200-203 were being reviewed, the only response to the mailing list
could be:

---------------------
TC200: approved
TC201: approved
TC202: approved
TC203: approved
---------------------

If there should be changes to the test cases, a short explanation on
which changes should be made and the rationale for the changes should be
included. For example:

------------
TC204: approved with the following changes:

The "foaf" prefix uses the incorrect URL "http://xmlns.com/foaf/". It
should be "http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/".
------------

or

------------
TC205: rejected, we need to discuss this feature

The @xxx attribute is obsolete in HTML5, so we should come up with an
alternative attribute to provide this behavior.
------------

I'll be sending the first such review e-mail out shortly.
