Not yet :(

The WG is working on a primer because we felt there was a need for an a 
more explanatory introduction to RDF than the specifications would 
provide.  There has been a lot of progress in the development of the syntax 
specifications.  The first WD tested the idea of moving to an infoset based 
grammer.  This WD shows how we propose to define the transform from RDF/XML 
to an RDF graph.  Both WD's addressed some specific issues from the issues 
list.  More issues are still to be addressed.  I would anticipate there 
will be at least one more WD before last call.

Unfortunately there is not.  I have tried to update the schedule, but at 
the time, things were just too uncertain.  My personal aim is that we 
should be substantially done in the first half of next year.
