Let's please review old business first.

I looked at the records of the last 3 or 4 meetings,
and most of the actions are done. I'd like to talk
about these, though; either to confirm that they're
done or to talk about their status and what to do
with them...

* x-properties and namespaces
RESOLVED to institute an ical product registry ala
'http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/prod/' + firstFew(prodID) + hash(prodId)
and to put RDF schemas there based on data we find from deployed

action libby: implement it, add/update some tests

* cal/geo usecase 1: opening hours of a thing that has a place

ACTION libby write a converter from chefmoz opening housr format to rdf
calendar format (or icalendar format maybe?)

ACTION danbri_fr to have a draft of the 'concentric circles' within100m
schema/vocab for next week

Also, to the extent that we can align our agenda items with
esw wiki topics, I think we'll win...

ah... yes... I see below that you're ahead of me.
Or great minds think alike, or something ;-)

Nifty, yes let's discuss that.

There has been some progress on toIcal.py, i.e. going back from
RDF to ical. I'd kinda like to talk about round-tripping tests,
but my ideas aren't very well prepared.

Also, I think I'd like to talk about how we're modelling timezones,
i.e. http://esw.w3.org/topic/InterpretationProperties
