[rdfweb-dev] Tidy up your FOAF week - name and shame

Before doing a "name and shame", I think it would be appropriate to post a 
simple easy-to-follow note which tells people how to make a good FOAF file.
(Covering not only the technical aspects, but summarizing what information 
is actually useful to include.)  This may already exists, in which case 
"reminding" folks with a pointer would suffice.

(I know my own FOAF file is way out-of-date, but as yet I haven't spent the 
time to go about tidying it up.  A simple recipe promoted to the FOAF 
community would encourage me to fix this.)
