Matthieu, Vivien, Ted, and
FYI, Gerald, for when you return from vacation.

As folk who have some experience in configuring apache and have
been part of W3C systeam discussions on good practices for such
things as content negotiation, the Vocabulary Management Task
Force [1] of the SemWeb Best Practices and Deployment WG would
appreciate your insights in a discussion of proposals it is considering
for best practices in serving content at RDF URIs.

   [1] http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/BestPractices/VM/

The goal of the target best practice is the following:

  A URI for an RDF Property or Class should be dereferencable and
  should provide both RDF (i.e. content type application/rdf+xml) and
  [X]HTML representations (e.g. content type text/html or
  application/xhtml+xml).  The client should be able to choose the
  representation by using content negotiation.

Alistair Miles (of SKOS fame) has done some experimentation
with apache and believes he's found a workable solution, which
he's documented [2] and since expanded upon [3].

Alistair would like to deploy this on several sites including w3.org.
Before doing so, he'd like to know if we're overlooking something
important.  To that end, we'd like to invite you to talk over this solution
at our next scheduled telecon on Tuesday, 15 November at 1400 UTC [4].
Alistair has written a proposed discussion agenda [5] which walks us
through [3] with some specific questions.

   [5] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-swbp-wg/2005Nov/0004.html

Please let us know if you're interested in the discussion and able
to attend on the 15th.  Discussion in email, via the public-swbp-wg
mailing list would also be welcome.  Please include the text "[VM]"
in subject lines to tag messages relevant to this discussion.
