I integrated some (all?) of the recent reports
into the implementation report; in particular,
I made some links from the exit criteria
to the systems that look like they meet the

It's really great to see this implementation
experience roll in. Keep up the sharp eyes on
the test cases and such.

If I left anything out, please let me know:

Exit Criteria
When the Working Group requested CR, it suggested the following
conditions met before proceeding on to PR. In terms of W3C Process, this
is the immediate implementation goal, but of course the real goal is to
have available lots of excellent, interoperable, and downright useful
OWL systems. These criteria are reproduced here so they can be linked to
appropriate implementations as they emerge.

     1. finish resolving dependency on RDF Core specs, esp. RDF
        @@note Sep RDF WDs
     2. two complete OWL Lite consistency checkers (i.e. 2 which pass
        almost all OWL Lite consistency and inconsistency tests and
        moreover claim logical completeness) 
        candidates include Pellet above
     3. Each test (except the extra credit tests) is demonstrated to be
        passed by some implementation 
        stay tuned to OWL test case results
     4. two reasoners implementing (different) substantial subsets of
        OWL DL 
        candidates include FaCT, Racer, Cerebra
     5. two reasoners implementing useful subsets of OWL Full and
        passing at least 80% of the postive entailment tests 
        Candidates include Euler, Jena, and surnia
     6. two owl syntax checkers passing all tests 
        candidates include Cerebra, OWLP, OWL validator above
