To be clear, I see the THES/PORT and VM Task Forces as
complementary but not actually overlapping.  The THES/PORT note
would focus on RDF/OWL guidelines and tools, while RDF/OWL
details would be out of scope for the VM note per se; the
VM note would merely point readers to relevant resources,
such as the THES/PORT note, along with any other helpful
resources we can think of.

BTW, aside from http://www.w3.org/2004/06/10-swbp-irc (circa
14:46-14:47), I am not aware of any written confirmations for
the telecon.  I believe it is supposed to be for 1400 UTC,
which is 1600 Amsterdam, for circa 45 minutes.  Can someone
