Regrets I wont be able to make this.  Would love to participate in this, but
I'd like to focus my fullest attention on my actions for the SWXG final
report (which also will cover WebID)which is due out next month, and there's
still a lot to cover.  Hopefully will be able to participate more from
October onwards.

Will follow the minutes, and mailing list closely, as ever, though.

General preference is to keep the core spec as 'lean and mean' as possible,
and allow supporting documentation e.g. wiki, primer, best practices if
that's allowable.

Well github issue tracker has improved since I last looked at it.
Personally I use www.assembla.com (free for open source projects) but
whatever works.

ManU: you mentioned that there had been some concerns raised externally.  Is
the intention here to put these in the github issue list?
