I must admit that I am pretty much to blame for this. The current
state is that the docs are pretty much ready for release - they just
need me to generate the PDFs.
The thing that initially kept me from pushing the button was the
unclear state of the ontology, and it seems that a lot of the
high-profile FOSS projects are moving towards the Nepomuk ontologies.
I still think that there are a lot of people out there using (or
waiting for) the xesam ontologies however.
Also about the ontology it was never cleared out what to do with
- http://xesam.org/main/XesamOntologyAbout (section "Ids and Object Relations")
- http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xesam/ the discussion in
The ontology-limbo is not to blame though. I simply got suck up into
starting out a new company in my spare time as well as having
incredibly busy times in my day time job.
The bottom line is that I should simply get my ass in gear and put
that 1.0 online - meaning accepting link-by-id as it is now.
