Marketing troubles

hi all,

as you know our company set up a demo server of our main product (PoolParty Thesaurus Server)
which is protected by webID.
now we some people very interested in the technology and who would like to test things.
problem is, believe it or not, these guys are from the not-so-tech-savvy front and
do not have access to their own root server, which means they are not simply able to
create or change their foaf-profile and therefor rely on foaf generators like foaf.me [1]
or myxwiki [2].
now unfortunately we are experiencing troubles with these sites, so any help is really appreciated.


1. if you create a foaf-profile there's no way to edit it
2. especially so, if you create a foaf-profile without webID, there's no way to log in at all
3. nobody reacts to mails, is it a dead mailing list?


1. only creates rdfa, ok i'll write a parser or check if sesame has one to use, but availability of application/rdf+xml would be highly appreciated
2. the rdfa created doesn't seem right.
   using this parser [3], i get triples that are not really ok,
   have a try with this foaf-URI [4], try with and without #me   

both of the above services write the rsa public key resource slightly different that i have it in my profile [5]
but one has to adapt the foaf-profile parser to find the publickey-string.
which one is the right one?

version one (datatype=cert#hex):

  <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/rsa#RSAPublicKey"/>
  <cert:identity rdf:resource="http://www.turnguard.com/turnguard"/>
  <rsa:modulus rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/cert#hex">
    bc 6d c4 be c2 a8 9a 3b 72 cf 31 74 e6 a3 d9 89 
    7e bd fc e5 bb 43 39 4d 85 cf 1e ad e4 b1 a7 83....

version two (cert#hex is a predicate)

    <cert:hex rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string">

we seriously would like to spread the word about webID and help growing the community,
also to world of decision makers who are interested.
i guess a refactoring of the services around our topic would certainly help.

any pointer, help or comment greatly appreciated
