Everyone,

	As you may know, GRDDL (Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages) is about to become a W3C Recommendation[1], and with GRDDL it should be easy to convert much of the microformat web (hundreds of millions of documents according to Alexa[2]) into the Semantic Web, which will increase the size of the Semantic Web dramatically. In my opinion, GRDDL, in concert with the Linking Open Data Project, could finally provide the data needed for the success of the Semantic Web, and it's absolutely critical this be done as soon as possible. 

	 It would be great if there was some effort to stabilize and maintain current GRDDL transformations for microformats [3], as well as propose some transformations from XML vocabularies. In order to figure out where to best use our community time and resource, I've created the following questionnaire (open to all), so please spare a minute to take it:
