Dear all,

As we discussed last week, none of the 4 issues mentioned in the mail 
below should be considered as blocking for the Primer, cf [1]:

Further, the document has been checked by Ed wrt. conformance of examples 
wrt Turtle language.

I would therefore propose to move forward the Primer, and to publish the 
February 11 Editor's draft of the Primer as a working draft [2].
This of course requires explicit endorsement of the two reviewers who 
kindly accepted to comment on the previous version.
Margherita and Quentin, will you be at the next teleconference? Do you 
support this publication?

Best, regards,

Antoine
