oops; quite...

I'm starting with the schedule in the charter
  http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/WebOnt/charter#L880
$Revision: 1.9 $ of $Date: 2001/08/14 00:03:43 $

I assume that implicit in the director's
decision to start this WG three months
later than the charter says is authorization
to shift the schedule by 3 months, so
that we can go thru Dec 2002 without rechartering.


Nov 2001
     Activity start and Working Group formation 

Dec 2001
     Publish "hello world" requirements/scenarios
        document, to (a) get the WG thru the
        process of publishing a W3C TR, and (b) to
        invite the review/user community to learn
        about us and get involved

        This document could/should cite related work,
        ongoing implementation projects, etc.

Jan 2002
     Working Group face-to-face meeting 
        -- have a draft document as input to the
        meeting *at least two weeks in advance* so
        that we can get together around the same page.

Jan/Feb 2002
     Publish initial working draft ontology Working Draft 
	(on http://www.w3.org/TR/)

Apr 2002
     Working Group face-to-face meeting 

May 2002
        WWW2002
     WG meeting? I suggest not;
	I suggest we just focus on outreach.

July/Aug/Sep/Oct 2002
     (Candidate Recommendation for ontology product) 
     Proposed Recommendation for ontology product 

     (Jul-Oct is sort of a confidence interval;
	we'll be in a better position to predict
	when we'll finish after April or May.)

Dec 2002
     recharter/terminate 

Issues:
  * I hope we can skip Candidate Recommendation; i.e.
        I hope we won't need a *separate* implementation
        phase from the design phase. I think there
	are sevel implementation efforts that will
	track our work as we go.

  * WWW2002 in May will be a big milestone. rather than
        scheduling a WG meeting at that time, I'm leaning
        toward making it an outreach event, when we show
        that this stuff works.
