Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

The RDF Data Access Working Group [1] was chartered until the end of this
month to specify a language querying an RDF graph and to define a
protocol for
query execution (over HTTP or SOAP). The protocol can return query results
either as an RDF graph or as a table (using XML). The corresponding
specifications are:

 1) "SPARQL Query Language for RDF" (Last Call Working Draft)
 2) "SPARQL Protocol for RDF" (Candidate Recommendation)
 3) "SPARQL Query Results XML Format" (Candidate Recommendation)

Several implementations are already known to exist for all three

The RDF Data Access Working Group is hereby extended until 30 November
2007 to
enable them to complete their work by advancing all three specifications to

More information about the RDF Data Access Working Group is available on the
group's home page [1] and in the Semantic Web Activity Statement [2].

This extension follows section 6.2.5 of the W3C Process Document:
