Hi all,

This email explains how I propose to develop the SKOS Semantics and SKOS Primer.

I've set up a wiki draft for the SKOS Semantics at:


and for the SKOS Primer at:


Note that these are not simple wiki pages. Each document is broken down into a number of major sections. The content for each major section is included from a sub-page.

So, for example, the introduction section for the SKOS Semantics is included from:


These documents are likely to get quite big, and so I propose to use this include mechanism to make editing individual sections easier.

Note also that, because content is included from other pages, there *will not* be any citable URLs for specific snapshots of the SKOS Semantics wiki draft or the SKOS Semantics wiki draft, although there *will* be citable URLs for specific revisions of each major section.

For example, the URL below denotes the 14th (currently latest) revision of the introduction section for the SKOS Semantics wiki draft:


I propose to develop these wiki drafts section by section, and then at appropriate times I will manually create a snapshot of the whole wiki draft and publish it as an editor's draft outside of the wiki.

Also, where I am the owner of a SKOS issue, and where there is some consensus on the issue already, I may use sections of these wiki drafts as proposed resolutions to the issue, rather than make a separate proposal first via email or another wiki page - this is just to make my life easier, and I'm more than happy for other issue owners to propose resolutions as they see fit.

How does that sound?
