Hi Guys,

I see the proposal as simple (Feed and Message)
and it can be part of NMO.

Good Idea!

According to http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/oscaf/wiki/NMO
tha maintainer of NMO is

I propose you create a ticket on
and add the proposes changes as N3 comment, a la
nmo:FeedChannel a rdfs:Class;
  rdfs:subClassOf nmo:CommunicationChannel;
  rdfs:label "...";
  rdfs:comment "...";
nmo:FeedMessage ..

According to our policy, you must get a reaction within 7 days.

If not, there are means (= this list) to step on the toes of someone.

Then, the suggested change is either accepted or rejected, but most
its documented in the ticket also

can you go for it?
