Dear all,

As explained in my earlier posting, the latest draft includes
alot of TASKS for specific members of the Task Force based on
my "best guess" as to what text contributions are needed in
specific sections.  These TASKS reflect the following rough
division of labor:

    Tom       - coordinator and editor; Dublin Core
    Libby     - FOAF, W3C specs and findings
    Dan       - FOAF, W3C specs and findings
    Alistair  - SKOS, thesauri, TAG on versioning
    Bernard   - OASIS Public Subjects
    Ralph     - W3C specs and findings
    James     - Use of vocabularies in Semantic Web
    Aldo      - Princeton Wordnet
    Alan      - Maybe an example ontology?
    Natasha   - Maybe an example ontology?

I list below how these specializations translate into
specific tasks.  I would appreciate if you could provide
me with feedback on these tasks over the coming week --
if only to confirm that the default tasks seem reasonable.

Of course, my intention with proposing specific tasks is
to help us focus -- not to set limits on participation!
If you would like to adjust the scope of your involvement,
please let me know so I can adjust your TASKS before the
draft goes up on the Wiki.

Thank you,
Tom
