Hi Tina,
Thanks for your questions.  I'll do my best to answer and Sandro may add more ....

We are planning to release 5 FPWD's in the coming week or two:
* Best Practices
* Data Cube Vocabulary
* Organization Ontology
* People Vocabulary

The chairs are responsible for sending to our group lead to get approval before publicly announcing for review/comment.  We'll send the URLs for the published docs. There is process that I understand having looked at several other WGs.

Once approved, the chairs notify the public list.  There will be a list that people outside the group can submit comments about the drafts and that will be sent with the announcement.

We expect there to be a lot of action in the month of March 2012, followed by months of review.  There is a lot of interest in all of these FPWDs, both inside gov't and industry, so we feel pressure to get a good quality product out for review ASAP.  

Thanks again for your questions.  I hope that helps.

Bernadette Hyland

I gathered from our recent telecons, that once we agree to make the drafts public, they are submitted to the W3C who will assign URLs for the drafts. Correct? So my questions:
