I've made a test build of a 1.0f release, at http://sdopending.appspot.com/

draft release notes:

"""1.) Several Minor fixes reported by Dan Scott
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2013Nov/0211.html>
 * http://schema.org/ItemAvailability
  - typo in "availablity": "A list of possible product availablity
options." should be "A list of possible product availability options."
* http://schema.org/citation - invalid note in docs. The description
says "NOTE: Candidate for promotion to ScholarlyArticle." when in fact
the property was promoted from ScholarlyArticle to CreativeWork.
 * http://www.schema.org/docs/schema_org_rdfa.html still has no
encoding declaration in the <head> element or HTTP header. This can
cause difficulties for parsers: Add <meta charset="UTF-8" /> to head.

2.) Textual changes to Offer that support not-for-profit offers.
* http://www.w3.org/community/schemabibex/wiki/Broaden_Offer_usage via
http://www.w3.org/community/schemabibex/wiki/Main_Page
* Thanks to Dan Scott again for the proposed RDFS diff
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2013Oct/0074.html>.
This broadens the definition of Offer and makes associated changes to
ItemAvailability and OfferItemCondition, typically rewording "the item
for sale" to simply say "the item". The itemOffered property is now
defined more appropriated as "The item being offered." rather than
"...sold.". The "seller" property is now defined as "The organization
or person making the offer.", a compromise to support its use for more
kinds of offer."""

See http://sdopending.appspot.com/Offer and nearby for most of this.
Thanks Dan x2, and the bibextend team. Unless someone catches a
mistake, we'll proceed to publish this shortly. "Many eyes", and all
that...

Dan
