thanks for the update

This time it is likely to contain around 180 datasets altogether having a

glad to see some knowledge organisation effort around LOD -  it would be
advisable if any of you related to this effort could join the okf project
coordination list
where all okfn related project information is being coordinated

may I ask why capping the date, rather than keeping it an open/ongoing
effort? why not continually update the registry
