Hi everyone,

In preparation of going forward, I'm going to be sending the following
message around to various W3C places (-dawg-comments, -sweo-ig, perhaps
to the membership in general if I'm advised to). But it applies at least
as much to everyone on this Working Group, so please take a look and
begin thinking about whether your organization would like to submit a
SPARQL testimonial (and what you would submit, and any clearance you
might need, etc.)

I've had a hard time confirming all the details below with people more
experienced than me, so take the deadline with a grain of salt; I'll let
everyone know when I know these things with greater certainty.

The RDF Data Access Working Group (the DAWG) is preparing to advance the
SPARQL specifications (query language, protocol, and XML results format)
to Proposed Recommendation and then onto becoming a W3C Recommendation.
As part of this process, we are soliciting testimonials in support of
SPARQL from W3C member organizations.

Testimonials should be several sentences long (figure one paragraph),
and should be attributed to a specific individual or individuals within
the organization. Testimonials can refer to specific software, tools, or
products, or can speak in general on behalf of SPARQL. Testimonials
should not discuss alternative/competing technologies. Testimonials will
be used on the W3C Web site to promote SPARQL and potentially also in
press releases.

We're hoping to gather SPARQL testimonials by the end of November. If
you can please let me know if you will try to produce a testimonial,
that will help me plan our path forward.

All SPARQL testimonials can be mailed directly to me at
