Re: [SKOS] developing the SKOS Semantics and SKOS Primer as wiki drafts

Hi Alistair,

I think I agree with what you propose, this is clearly a nice way to 
deal with the fact these documents are likely to be edited in a 
collective way.

I have however concerns about the readability of the final document and 
its 'ready-to-export' propriety. The many colors and tables, and the 
lack of auto;atic numbering in the wiki (or at least in your document) 
might cause problems. One thing is sure: hacing distinct pages for 
editing these sections in an easy way is a requirement ;-)

Cheers,

Antoine

> 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.
