Hi all,

report on my action regarding checking the status of SWBP WG's
Part-whole ontology. It seems the document will be officially published
in a form similar to the editors' draft and with no substantial changes,
so there are no obstacles to us reusing the ontology.

Now comes the question of whether we want to do so and in what form.
I'll be posting a new message on this topic.

As far as I know the note is ready to go modulo a few minor tweaks.   
I think Chris Welty 'has the token'.  There was a delay when his  
machine failed at the Face-to-Face in November, and I suspect  
holidays and other things have meant the document hasn't emerged.

If there is a problem for Chris, I can probably make the few  
necessary changes next month, but he had some alternative examples in  

No changes in substance are planned.
