WOWGers -
  The RDF Core WG has released a document [1] that does a very nice 
job of explaining what RDF is, how it works, and some technical 
introduction not found in their other documents.
  Given our tight time schedule, I will not ask the WG to perform a 
formal review, but I invite you all to read the document and send 
your comments to their mailing list [2]

>The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a data format for 
>representing metadata about Web resources, and other information. 
>This document defines the abstract graph syntax on which RDF is 
>based, and which serves to link its XML serialization to its formal 
>semantics. It also describes some other technical aspects of RDF 
>that do not fall under the topics of formal semantics, XML 
>serialization syntax or RDF schema and vocabulary definitions (which 
>are each covered by a separate document in this series). These 
>include: discussion of design goals, meaning of RDF documents, key 
>concepts, character normalization and handling of URI references.
