Soliciting input for "Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF Vocabularies"

The Semantic Web Deployment Working Group [1, 2] is, amongst 
other things, chartered to produce a revised and extended 
version of the "Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF 
Vocabularies" [3]. This is a quite down-to-earth document 
intended to give practical guidelines for vocabulary owners. 
The abstract says:

   This document describes best practice recipes for 
publishing an RDFS or OWL vocabulary or
   ontology on the   Web. The features of each recipe are 
clearly described, so that vocabulary
   or ontology creators may choose the recipe best suited to 
the needs of their particular situations.
   Each recipe contains an example configuration for use 
with an Apache HTTP server, although
   the principles involved may be adapted to other 
environments. The recipes are all designed
   to be consistent with the architecture of the Web as 
currently specified.

We would welcome input from the community on this, both 
through comments on the first draft (especially if you've 
tried to use the recipes) [4] and through people willing to 
join the SWD group for working on this.

Feel free to contact the chairs if you want more information.

Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.
