It is part of a larger effort to revise the RDF specifications as published in 2004. The most significant changes from the 2004 edition are: modified string literals, a section on skolemization of blank nodes, and many updated references to other specifications (including a change in terminology from “URI references” to “IRIs”). A fuller list of changes that have been made to date is provided in Appendix A. Various areas of work to be tackled in upcoming working drafts are highlighted throughout the document, but should not yet be understood as an exhaustive list.

There's a process document section
<http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#first-wd> but it's more
about the promise to the community than it is a recipe, which boils
down to a transition request and a publication request. The latter is
trivial and here's a draft of the former so we can fill in the blanks:
