POWDER Document Suite: Last Call Working Draft

Hello Chairs, and the chairs of MWIBP, RIF, WAI, SWDWG, UWA, and XML 
Activity, as well as the TAG and PICS IG,

The POWDER Working Group has been developing a suite of documents that 
specify a protocol for publishing descriptions of Web resources.  On 
behalf of the Chair of, I am excited to announce that the POWDER Working 
Group has agreed [1] to publish the three Recommendation track documents 
in this suite as Last Call Working Drafts:

* POWDER: Formal Semantics
* POWDER: Description Resources
* POWDER: Grouping of Resources

The Last Call review period is until 14 September 2008, and we would 
look forward to all and any feedback, but particularly seek opinions on 
the following:

 * use of arbitrary RDF in POWDER documents
 * HTTP Link header usage
 * defining wdrs:issuedby as a subproperty of both foaf:maker and 

The Working Group has also published two Working Drafts that are 
expected to become Working Group Notes:

* POWDER: Primer

* POWDER: Test Suite

We welcome feedback on these important new publications as well.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that registration is now open for 
the latest POWDER outreach event called More of What You Want, When You 
Want It.  Please join WG members and invited guests to discuss what 
POWDER offers to the traditional and Semantic Webs.
