PROPOSED: to accept
as a true record of Sept 11 telecon.

PROPOSED to meet biweekly for 90 minutes Background: chairs have
reconsidered this. Rationale for biweekly: it may take some time for
the WG to go to PR/Rec due to the RDFCore dependency. We prefer less
frequent telecons with good attendance. Agenda will be mix of
tests/comments/schedule and outreach.

Provisional telecon schedule until end of Oct:
   Sep 25: NO telecon
   Oct 2:  telecon
   Oct 9:  NO telecon
   Oct 16: telecon
   Oct 23: NO telecon (but many of us will meet at ISWC)
   Oct 30: telecon
