Dear Advisory Committee representative,

I am pleased to announce the advancement of 6 specifications to Proposed

  RDF 1.1 Concepts and Abstract Syntax

  RDF 1.1 Semantics

  RDF 1.1 Turtle

  RDF 1.1 TriG - RDF Dataset Language

  RDF 1.1 N-Triples

  RDF 1.1 N-Quads

and 2 specifications to Proposed Edited Recommendations:

  RDF Schema 1.1

  RDF 1.1 XML Syntax

The approval and publication are in response to these transition requests
from the RDF Working Group:

Please review the specifications and indicate whether you endorse these as
W3C Recommendations or object to the advancement of one or more of them by
completing the following questionnaire:

Additional details about the review are available in the questionnaire.
The deadline for responses is 23:59, Boston time on 2014-02-09.

There was a formal objection: Michael Schneider and Antoine Zimmermann
objected to the way datatypes are defined in RDF 1.1 (as opposed to RDF
1.0). The Group decided that the issue is purely editorial. Although the
changes do have a cost, mainly on the work of relatively small
communities, the benefits of the change for current and future users of
RDF were deemed to outweigh the costs. For further details see Issue-165,
which lists the complete email thread leading to the formal objection:

More information about the RDF Working Group is available on the Group's
home page:

If you should have any questions or need further information, please
contact Sandro Hawke <sandro@w3.org>, or Ivan Herman <ivan@w3.org> RDF WG
Team Contacts.

This Call for Review follows section 7.4.4 of the W3C Process Document:
