Hi all,

My apologies for not being able to work on the draft since Galway.  I 
will try to catch up in the coming weeks.

I've drafted a TODO list with things that need to be done, the first of 
which should preferably be done before we go public with the image 
annotation note. I've tentatively assigned names to the action points, 
if your name is there while you do not agree, please let me know.

 From the face to face in Galway, three things where still open:

1. Possible patent issue (STILL OPEN, Action Ralph)
Thanks Jeremy for providing the requested pointers.  Ralph, could you 
ask Daniel Weitzner what his position in this is?  The thread on 
patent-issues seems to have died after Daniel's message [1]. As a 
non-native speaker and a non-legal expert, I'm not sure how to reply to 
Daniel's message.

2. Status Jane Hunter (RESOLVED)
AFAIK, Jane completed the forms and is now an invited expert of the 
SWBPD WG.  Ralph, please correct me if I'm wrong.

3. Process comments from Mike (ACTION OPEN, Jacco & Jeff)
Jeff started editing the draft based on Mike's comments, but many things 
  still need to be done.  I expect to complete the work on this next 
week, and hope to get some help from Jeff.

So I hope that if the we get the patent stuff sorted out and process 
Mike's comments we can start the process to publish the first public 
draft soon.

Other things that need to be done but could be done after going public:
- Add medical and/or life science use case (Jane, Jacco),
- Add IPTC News use case (Raphael, Jacco, Misha Wolf?)
- Add solution to media production use case (Giorgos).

Note that the timing seems right to go public and ask for feedback from 
a broader audience asap.  At the EWIMT workshop [2] in London previous 
week there was much interest in the work of the MMTF. In a complementary 
track, the aceMedia project agreed to start collecting requirements for 
a potential common multimedia ontology framework, and of course we will 
keep this list up to date on developments in this area. We also agreed 
to collaborate between the work of the MMTF on the image vocabulary 
repository and the aims of the aceMedia project to build a mm vocabulary
