ADMIN: Guests for January f2f - suggestions sought

A primary goal of the January face to face in Manchester will be to 
bring together people implementing OWL to help us further develop our 
testing suites (for example, how can a tool that does not do 
entailment per se be shown to be Owl compliant in some way?), to get 
evidence of interoperability, and to show that every feature of our 
language is implementable and all our requirements are met.

To this end, we are thinking about inviting some folks who are not in 
the WG, but are involved in implementing these sorts of systems to 
attend the f2f and to help us demonstrate the factors needed for us 
to have a short (or non-existant) Candidate Recommendation period 
(see process documents for details [1]).

If you know of someone who is developing a system that uses OWL (or 
D+O but is willing to support OWL in the short term), might be 
interested in joining us for a "hackathon" in Manchester, and who you 
feel would contribute positively to the interaction, please let me, 
Guus and Dan know.

time is short, so we'd welcome your recommendations soonest
