I'm currently editing the specifcation page on the SKOS site [1] in 
order to update references to the Reference and the Primer (it had not 
been changed for a while)

Of particular interest is the status of the 2005 specs. I assume that I 
can safely write that the SKOS Core Guide and the SKOS Core Vocabulary 
Specification are superseded (resp by the Primer and the Reference). But 
how about the "Quick Guide to Publishing a Thesaurus on the Semantic 
Web"? I've re-read it, it appears that this very simple and efficient 
document has stood quite well the test of time, with respect to the SKOS 
side. It is however very debatable when receipes to serve the data are 
concerned. And of course it maintains a number of references to the 
other superseded SKOS documents, which is not very convenient.

As I guess the WG won't have any time now to devote to re-writing and 
reviewing this document, I'd propose to declare it superseded by the 
SKOS Primer and the Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF 
Vocabularies. But I'm not 100% sure of course, therefore I'd like to 
raise the issue before the end of our regular teleconferences...
