 	There will another IRC #swig meeting to discuss vCard in RDF, this 
time with more of a focus on its relationship to other existing languages 
such as FOAF. The meeting with be both over IRC and face-2-face in Boston 
for those attending the W3C Multi-Meeting Week. In IRC the meeting will of 
course be on #swig, and at the W3C Multi-Meeting the face-to-face 
component will be held at 12:00ET in I think in G631 of the MIT Strata 
Building. Hope to see you there, either in person or over IRC!

The relevant documents are:

1) The skeleton of the spec:

2) The draft mappings (using Embedded RDF):
