draft of P4 Users Guide, for review

Rich Morin
The P4 Users Guide is nearing the point where it can be put
on the BMIR wiki and opened up for general editing.  Before
that happens, however, I'd like to hear about any structural
problems (eg, organization, page naming conventions) that I
should attend to.  So, please take a look and let me know if
you see anything amiss!  Here's some links:

I'm not sure we can or should borrow material from the Primer on
a large scale (due to copyright restrictions), but Guide pages
can certainly link to sections in the primer:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-owl2-primer-20090922/#Class_Hierarchies


In any case, this idea is interesting and well worth exploring; can
you elaborate on it a bit?  For example, pick a suitable page and
describe the content you would like to see added...

Which copyright restrictions are you concerned about. Have a look at
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-documents-20021231

It allows for use of whole or part as long as there is acknowledgement
and backlinks.

Yes, but there is a restriction:

  No right to create modifications or derivatives of W3C documents
  is granted pursuant to this license. ...

This might come into play, for example, if we simply started with
the Primer and added links to our material.  However, we can use
quite a bit of material and stay within the spirit of the license.

I would be interested in moderating this if it comes to a point where
you think you are restricted. I suggest assuming you can use what you
want, and then if you run into anything that you or the lawyers are
worried about, please ask me and I will take it up with the W3C.
