Sorry - I missed this call as I've been travelling the last two weeks. 
I am still interested in contributing to the DCAT revision.

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!
