Good effort, brava!

So good to see yous doing a revision - suspect the fact that someone's got

(and these changes seem mighty sane, btw)

> These are the changes made:
>        • terms: foaf:Agent owl:equivalentClass with Dublin Core terms

> use the most modern http://purl.org/dc/terms/ namespace
>        • editorial: added note about the use of 'archaic'
>        • editorial: added a paragraph on changes in this version

>        • terms: marked fundedBy as archaic
>        • terms: marked givenname as archaic; replaced with givenName

>        • terms: changed myersBriggs from incorrect objectProperty to
> datatypeProperty
>        • terms: added openId into the rdf/xml version (it was present in
> the
> dated version but not in index.rdf)
>        • terms: marked theme as archaic
>        • editorial: fixed outdated references to RDF/XML
>        • editorial: updated acknowledgements
>        • terms: added text about terms used in foaf not in the foaf
