Hi Tom, all,

A little while ago I updated the PORT page [1] using the OEP page [2] as model, and suggest using a similar layout for VMTF.

[1] http://www.w3.org/2004/03/thes-tf/mission
[2] http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/BestPractices/OEP/

Also the new content you give below is a bit confusing - do the objectives, approach and scope sections describe the objectives/approach/scope of the TF as a whole, or the objective/approach/scope of a specific deliverable (namely the HTTP cookbook)?

Cheers,

Al.

>     OBJECTIVES
> 
>     1. To define a set of good-practice "recipes" for 
> configuring an Apache
>        server for content negotiation such that:
> 
>       -- If a person tries to dereference the URI of a class or
>          property (i.e. via a Web browser), they end up at
>          the relevant bit of human-readable documentation.
> 
>       -- If a machine tries to dereference the URI of a class
>          or property, they end up with a serialisation of a set of
>          RDF statements describing that class or property, with
>          a provenance that allows differentiation of different
>          'versions' of an RDF schema/ontology.
> 
>       -- The dereferencing solution complies with TAG resolution on
>          httpRange-14 [6].
> 
>     2. To wrap those recipes in enough context to make
>        them usable by vocabulary maintainers to provide
>        documentation and schemas for their vocabularies.
> 
>     APPROACH
> 
>     Based on a comparison of documentation requirements for
>     existing vocabularies such as Dublin Core, SKOS, and FOAF,
>     this note describes a range of good-practice solutions for
>     providing documentation of the vocabularies both in human-
>     and machine-processable form.
> 
>     SCOPE
> 
>     Guidelines for providing documentation about terms in
>     vocabularies (Metadata Element Sets, Thesauri, Ontologies,
>     Published Subjects, and the like).
> 
>     DELIVERABLES
> 
>     A relatively concise technical note describing how to 
>     configure an Apache Web server for content negotiation.
