Re: LD Patch review

Hi Steve,

Pierre-Antoine, Andrei, and I talked this morning about your comments.
Andrei is now addressing them in the specification.

As for playing with LD Patch itself, I have that ready [1] for a
release. It will probably happen on Friday. I will provide you with
informations re: Maven configuration.

It's only building for Jena for now, but I can do Sesame if you prefer.
