Hi Thomas,

The RDF WG would like to publish "Turtle: Terse RDF Triple Language" as 
a First Public Working Draft with a short name of "turtle".  Do you concur?

The WG Call for Consensus to publish this first public WD is:
The Chairs decision on the CfC is recorded at:
The Editors' Draft is available at:

The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a general-purpose language 
for representing information in the Web.

This document defines a textual syntax for RDF called Turtle that allows 
RDF graphs to be completely written in a compact and natural text form, 
with abbreviations for common usage patterns and datatypes. Turtle 
provides levels of compatibility with the existing N-Triples andNotation 
3 formats as well as the triple pattern syntax of the SPARQL W3C 

This document specifies a language that is in common usage under the 
name "Turtle". It is intended to be compatible with, and a subset 
of,Notation 3.
