I would like to see a strong alignment between the C# and Java
interfaces. 

From the dotgnu perspective, Java is on the radar big time. 

The Dotgnu project is working on being able to compile Java to IL, and
we should be able to have Java code using the C# API. 

The problem may be with the basic collection and uri classes, 
we need to look into that in detail. There are a couple of ways that we
can try and align those interface, but in the end, people will not want
to learn a new api.

Many people use and like the Jena interface, and in some cases, it is
on the leading edge in RDF technology. 

Please do suggest your times, otherwise, why dont we try and make this
weekends first dotgnu meeting. I am sure we can piggyback on top of
them There has been no confirmation from anyone on times. 

The meetings are conducted via IRC in the channel
#dotgnu on irc.openprojects.net at the following
times:

    Saturday 1000 UTC
    Saturday 2200 UTC

The first is best for DotGNU members east of UTC
and the second is best for DotGNU members west
of UTC.  Some of the key DotGNU members attend
both meetings.

The logs of #dotgnu are always available here:
