These are the changes made:

	 terms: foaf:Agent owl:equivalentClass with Dublin Core terms
namespace 'Agent'; similarly foaf:maker and 'creator' from DC. These
use the most modern http://purl.org/dc/terms/ namespace
	 editorial: added note about the use of 'archaic'
	 editorial: added a paragraph on changes in this version
	 terms: family_name marked as archaic; replaced with familyName
	 terms: marked fundedBy as archaic
	 terms: marked givenname as archaic; replaced with givenName
	 terms: marked holdsAccount as archaic; replaced with account
	 terms: changed myersBriggs from incorrect objectProperty to
datatypeProperty
	 terms: added openId into the rdf/xml version (it was present in the
dated version but not in index.rdf)
	 terms: marked theme as archaic
	 editorial: fixed outdated references to RDF/XML
	 editorial: updated acknowledgements
	 terms: added text about terms used in foaf not in the foaf namespace
	 editorial: fixed links and stray references to rdfweb-dev and #rdfig
	 editorial: fixed rdfweb.org blog links (now pointing at archive.org
where possible)
	 editorial: fixed links to the wiki (stray /w/)
	 editorial: fixed internal link to sec-glance
	 editorial: fixed copyright date to 2009

We went for low-hanging fruit and focused on getting the toolset in a
more useful state. We expect to do another revision in the near future
(you wait two years for a rev and two come along at once!). There are
certainly things still needing work, and quite likely bugs around the
mechanics of publication (content negotiation, redirects etc.). But
we're happy to have this thing moving again!
