We had a vote for making turtle a MUST understand by consumers and have RDF/XML deprecated by publishers.
Then there was a lot of feedback on improving the spec, which I will have ready for monday. 

Peter Williams seems to have some issue logging into fcns.org and foafssl.org , though I am not sure at all what the problem is. I want to try to improve my verification service to work out what the issue is

And we have quite a few new implementations.

I know it adds some overhead, but it would really make things easier for those who do know wish to get involved with the mailing list.

It would be useful if every thread ended up with a summary of what was learnt in it. But that would require more discipline that is available. 

We can have a summary on Monday for the teleconf.

I for one told him that I was looking into this but that I was first resting for the Xmas vacations. Notice how he kept banging on about this all through the holidays irrespective of the holidays, as if an issue could fix itself if he kept speaking about it. So now the holidays are over, I'll look into it. Let's get to the root of his problem before we go on more and more crazy hypothetical solutions to what may not be a problem at all.
