You might have seen a few of these recently such as:

  implementation report: Sesame and the RDF specs
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2003Aug/0032.html

  3store RDF(S) server implementation report
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2003Aug/0083.html

or even implict ones in
  "Sesame 0.95 released"
  [[An in-memory repository that supports RDF+RDFS entailment as 
   specified in the Last Call WD of the RDF Model Theory. Performance 
   tests indicate that the repository copes well with O(10^5) statements
   (tested with 128MB RAM machine). Upload and querying performance are
   *a lot* faster than comparable operations on RDBMS repositories
  ]] -- http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2003Aug/0080.htmll


Thes emails are part of or related to the request that went out a few
weeks ago for people to report on how they are getting on implementing
RDF, and in particular the updates that the RDF Core working group have
been doing.
  See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2003Aug/0003.html

Personally, I'm pretty confident that some things are implemented
completely such as the RDF/XML syntax. However we need more reports of
work on the RDF model theory/semantics, entailments and whether full
RDF-as-revised is done (for example, do you do datatypes, what do you do
with them?, XML literals?, how about languages in literals?).

This information is intended to be used as part of the evidence that the
RDF Core specifications are implemented and implementable.   So we can
progress the work on them.  Soon, hopefully!

So if you implement RDF and would like to state a summary of how you
got on, what works, what doesn't, I'd encourage you to email something
either to www-rdf-comments@w3.org or copying this list.  It doesn't
have to be a long email.

Thanks

Dave
