Hello all

My 0.01

Title :         "Serving RDFS and OWL Vocabularies"
Subtitle:       "A Best Practices Cookbook"

At least in French, the "serving" metaphor works as well as in English, "serveur" is both
used for "computer server" and "waiter". So actually the subtitle would be useless, in
theory, but good to keep it just to hit the nail for folks who do not catch easily subtle
ambiguities ... there are some in the target audience, right?

I take the opportunity to apologize for having missed about every VM Task Force meeting
for a while, and will certainly not promise to do better in the future. Work overload is a
poor excuse, actually I felt at some point that I had not much to bring, given the
technical scope of the current work. Actually my interest in the TF was mainly in stuff
that has been pushed aside to focus on the cookbook. This is not at all to say that
focusing on the cookbook was an option I disagree with, just to mention that if I had
known the TF would follow that track, maybe I would not have jumped in to begin with.
Again, not out of interest, but out of real technical expertise to bring. Given my poor
participation, I'm not even sure if it's fair to keep my name in the TF members list - by
W3C good standing rules, I've been clearly off-limits for quite a while :((

Cheers

Bernard
