I am also offering to review the Testcases document, as soon as it is
regarded to be stable enough, and after I have finished my review of the DL

>Sorry for the longish message, but it contains *very important
>information*, so please read it carefully.
>At the recent F2F meeting in Boston we agreed that:
>- we would publish updated working drafts of (at least) the core
>documents on or about 15th September;
>- we would aim to have last call candidates of (at least) the core
>documents ready for mid October;
>- we would vote on transitioning these documents to last call at the
>F2F meeting in Cannes in late October.
>The core documents are:
>- Syntax
>- Semantics
>   - Model Theoretic
>   - RDF-based
>- Mapping to RDF
>- Profiles
>- XML Serialisation
>We urgently need WG members to carry out *detailed reviews* of these
>documents before we publish. We would like to have 3 reviews of each
>document, and we need the reviews to be completed by *9th September*.
>We expect this to be the last round of (major) revisions before they
>are transitioned to Last Call, so if you care about OWL *now is the
>time to stand up and be counted*.
>Currently we have the following reviewers committed:
>- Syntax: Michael Smith
>- Semantics
>   - Model Theoretic:  Michael Schneider
>   - RDF-based:  Jie Bao, Peter Patel-Schneider, Zhe Wu
>- Mapping to RDF:  Alan Ruttenberg
>- Profiles:  Jim Hendler, Ian Horrocks
>- XML Serialisation
>Other documents that we would also like to publish on this schedule,
>but that have lower priority, are:
>-  Primer, Requirements, Quick Reference
>Other documents that may not meet this schedule
>- Quick Reference, Test
>What happens in these cases will depend on the progress that is made
>over the next few weeks.
