Great ! Thanks for feedback.

Right now bookmark collections can be published to and read from Web as 
rdf files.

I did some explorations with Annotea bookmark server with Eric P. long 
time ago and Eric just put the bookmark stuff back so we are getting 
back to it.

What I would like to have is to have the server working for bookmarks 
and the rdf files working for annotations. I did HTTP PUT for the rdf 
file but not many servers allow it so it has not been tested much.

And maybe someday I can combine the annotations and bookmarks and 
implement the millions of other ideas I have had for a long time. But 
one thing at a time :-).

> Do you have an idea - when this feature will be implemented?

No promises yet. Something experimental will be working hopefully soon. 
I'm trying to do some debugging with Eric this week when he is 
available. I think a bit additional design is needed here to do it 
properly and I may need to do a bit more learning.

> Which annotation servers will be supported?

Hopefully this will be adopted when we have it working in one server. 
The goal is really to be able to use any metadata server.

I'm planning to put this to sourceforge and cvs to be able to get some 
help in case others are interested.
