Cool :) No that's fine.

I don't have ideas for now about it. It's a very hard and interesting 
question. Maybe Patrick or Dimitris could reply to that.

	We don't have a particular infrastructure made inside the QA WG. the 
OWL/RDF WGs have certainly done things. You should contact Sandro or 
Jeremy Caroll. I'm pretty sure they have already tremenduous solutions.

Yes you are right. The best persons who will have a sharp knowledge of 
it would be Dimitris and Patrick. I hope they could have time to 
participate to one of our teleconf.

Dimitris, Patrick could you? If not, tell me I'll try to find someone 

Many thanks.
