Hi All,

Apologies, yesterday was a National Holiday in the UK which I had 
forgotten about. I would like to quickly update you on what we are doing 
though and also to manage expectations a little. Firstly, although I 
would like to see more of our data in RDF there is no internal mandate 
for this as of yet. It is possible this will shift in the near future, 
but  what Tomasz and I are trying to do is really find an hour here and 
there to do the transform. So we are looking at ways to this via a path 
of least resistance. The way we are currently trying is via a transform 
on the XML results using XSLT and the model I presented to the group 
several weeks back. I'm hoping we'll have a prototype in the next week 
or so but really I can't promise. Rest assured, I will let you know as 
soon as we have anything worthwhile but I wanted to manage what people 
expect so as not to disappoint. Our recent efforts to get funding to do 
this in a more dedicated manner were not successful so it's very much as 
we get some spare time (which is not a lot!). So it's not that we're not 
interested, indeed the opposite is true, it's just funding dictates 
other priorities at the moment. But we're trying.
