Re: Minutes teleconference last Friday

Dear all,

  ok, I think I have implemented all changes so far.

I am missing:

1) Definition of Lexical Sense (Elena/Lupe)
2) John: can you please regenerate the figures for the examples, 
execution of stops due to missing rdflib on my machine, 
3) Definition of LexicalizationSet, will copy from the lime module

Best regards,
