William, Peter, All,

Very glad to see that dcat has got some interest!
We are very happy to cooperate and discuss...

FYI, we are working on a user guide now and will have it available soon.
We are also working on having the work on dcat under W3C eGov IG. I will
provide more details and pointers as soon as possible.

There seems to be consensus on this within data.gov.uk as well
