Hi Alistair,

Would be good to deliver something at the end of the charter that is 
"complete" and usable in itself, with a list of documented issues. If 
I understand correctly you'd like to split proposals/issues into those 
that will and those that will not be addressed within the lifetime of 
this TF or for which no consensus is reached (yet)?

Do you propose some kind of format? We already have "change proposals" 
for the first category but nothing for the second. This could be the 
"issues" list?

With "current proposals" are you referring to the open change 
proposals [1] that are not yet implemented or for which no solution is 
defined yet?

At the recent face-to-face meeting in Galway I argued for a working group that had as its core mission the continued work of the PORT, OEP and VM task forces, rather than a 'SKOS-only' WG, as I believe there are strong dependencies between these work areas, with a lot of valuable work still to do.

However, I think the current proposals need some further development to reach good consensus.  Also, third public working drafts for SKOS Core Guide and Vocab Spec before Jan 31 2006 is a very tight timeline.  I'd rather focus our energy over the next 2-3 months on developing a clearly documented and well-discussed set of issues and proposals, to act as input to development of a new WG charter in the new year, and as a basis for a possible W3C Recommendation track work item.
