publication update / to-do list

We're actually on schedule to publish next Tuesday.  The main remaining
hurdle is something called a Transition Meeting, on Monday, where the
Director checks to make sure we've followed the process properly.  If
that goes well, we should be able to publish on Tuesday.

The documents are basically done.  I've done new Editor's Drafts, dated
today, and also gone a step farther and installed them in their expected
publication place, which allows for checking a few more things.  You can
see them there, with names like (and linked from):

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-owl2-overview-20090922/

If all goes as planned, on the 22nd, I can just take the big yellow box
away.   (Look at the page if you don't know what I mean by that.)

So, we still have a few days to fix any last little errors.  Fix them on
the wiki and let me know, so I can regenerate the drafts.

Things to do:

    ** Check the change log.  I believe Ian implemented my suggestion of
       making the "Status of this document" section just have boiler
       plate, and putting the real changes in an appendix which has the
       HTML id "changelog".  For example, look at:

       http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-owl2-syntax-20090922/#status-changes
         and
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-owl2-syntax-20090922/#changelog
       
       Please make sure all documents follow this structure.  

       PLEASE look at the color-coded diff (on the PR version with the
       yellow box, NOT the Editor's Drafts) and make sure the
       Changes-Since-CR lines up with what the color-coded diff shows.
       It would be embarassing (or worse) to have someone see a
       non-trivial change that's not mentioned in the change log.

       We can delete the change details from
       http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Round_8 
       I'm leaving them there, for now, in case they contain useful
       information that's not in the changelog yet.
       (Ian, you mentioned leaving them there for the Director, but he
       didn't mind it the other way at the RIF transition.)

   **  It'd be nice if someone fixed the abstracts to actually be two
       paragraphs, as in http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Conformance,
       instead of just having a <br/>, which doesn't give a good
       paragraph break.

I think that's it.  I do have a few remaining questions/issues:

      - What are we doing about the "final location of the repository of
        user-contributed test cases"?

      - How are we finally publishing the schema document for owl/xml?
        I should like in my GRDDL transform.

      - Are we doing a custom PDF for Quick Ref (one that's really two
        pages)?  It's time to include that, if we're going to make it
        offical, and I don't see it.

Some things I fixed recently:

      - The PDF title bug that's been annoying Michael  :-)
      - some missing references in Conformance and NFR
      - added a #changelog for PlainLiteral
      - wrote SOTD text explaining what we're doing with XSD 1.1

Anything I'm forgetting?
