Hi all,

Just before Christmas, Sean and I published a first Editors' Draft of the SKOS Reference:


The SKOS Reference is the technical specification that will be at the heart of the SKOS W3C Recommendation.

This document is just an Editors' Draft -- it is *not* a W3C Public Working Draft. It is currently under review within the Semantic Web Deployment WG, and we hope to make a decision to publish a first W3C Public Working Draft within the next couple of weeks. Discussions about the review and the publication decision will be going on on the public-swd-wg@w3.org list, some of which may not be cced to this list, so you might want to keep an eye on that (Web archive: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-swd-wg/).

There will, of course, be plenty of opportunity to comment at the Public Working Draft stage. However, comments and suggestions at this early stage are, as always, very welcome. If you feel there are issues with the technical content, please say so. If you think any of the prose is confusing, ambiguous, or there is anything important missing, please say so (and do feel free to suggest some prose if you feel inspired :)

As I also said to my SWD colleagues, I'm very conscious that this document is less than perfect, and I think there is a lot of work still to do, but hopefully this first editor's draft will at least help to focus our discussions. 

I'm also conscious that the document is a bit "behind" the current discussions on this list. I hope to catch up with this asap, and build the great ideas and points of view expressed here into subsequent editions of the SKOS Reference. If there is any idea or point of view that appears to have been missed or not understood, please do not hesitate to draw attention to it. 

Kind regards,
