Hi Alex:
Copying the public and member mailing lists for the XG.

In my view XSPARQL falls within the purview of the XG and we shd look at it.

Here is what I'm thinking of doing going forward.  After a week or so to 
folks to join the XG, I'll schedule an initial telcon to get us 
organized.  We will need
to schedule a weekly telcon and discuss when we can have a face-to-face 

We also need to discuss the scope of the XG and possible technical 
If we can have a f2f soon, then we can schedule  presentations on the 
various directions.
If we cannot have a f2f soon we will schedule discussions at the telcons.

All the best, Ashok
