Alistair,

I have had a look through it and all the point seem to have been
addressed. Hence, I support the publication of this document.

Thanks,

Quentin

Dear Quentin,

A new Editors' Draft of the SKOS Reference is available at:

[1] <http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/SKOS/reference/20080118>

Please could you indicate as soon as possible whether you support the
publication of this document as a public working draft, or whether any
further changes are required.

The points raised in your review have been addressed in [1] as follows.

Done (document has been spell-checked for US English).

To help move forward quickly with this document, a placeholder has been
included in section 1 for such an example. (Hopefully some members of
the WG representing vocabulary providers could discuss and select an
appropriate example for a subsequent working draft.)

Links have been added in column 2. Hopefully the categorisation should
be clear.

These stand for numbering which is yet to be done. An editors' note has
been added in the status section to explain this.

Section 7 now reflects the proposed resolution of ISSUE-44 as stated in
[2]. The notes should now also be consistent with the formal
definitions.

Section 10 has a number of editorial notes, explaining the current
situation, and with links to new issues in the SWD issue tracker which
should provide enough focus for discussion on the possible semantics of
concept mapping properties after publication as a Working Draft. 

Kind regards,

Alistair.
