Hi Francois - I've made the minor changes to QB4ST we discussed a couple of
weeks ago.  For linking to the Turtle file holding the full definition of
the ontology, I've linked to the github file -
https://github.com/w3c/sdw/blob/gh-pages/qb4st/ontology/qb4st.ttl

Is that appropriate? Or should that file be hosted elsewhere in w3.org web
space?

If you could confirm on that question please then i'll email the group with
a request for comments/consensus.

Many thanks

Bill
