Thanks, Alejandra. And thanks to DaveB. If the two of you can get the
ball rolling on this that would be great.

Since DCAT 1.1 is to be built on DCAT, it seems that we could get
started by copying the DCAT document to our github, drop the old dates
and other items, rename it to DCAT 1.1, and declare this our working
document. It does mean working in github and respec, so some drafting
may take place elsewhere, but the basics would be there to make it easy
to copy code and styles.

If either of you wants to do this, that's fine. If you'd like me to do
it, I don't mind.

So, it looks like DCAT 1.1 is beginning!
