I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean you have a new patch that credits 
the W3C for this content?

If so I imagine that will be fine, but I need the patch before I can 
commit. The danger is that someone may download the SKOS plugin and 
publish the content assuming it is Apache licenced when it is not.

I know this is a slim possibility, but the ASF prides itself on managing 
IPR correctly.

Please provide a new patch with this change made.

I'd also appreciate it if you can check with the W3C to ensure such 
reuse (with accreditation or otherwise) is acceptable. It almost 
certainly will be, otherwise what is the point of making it available in 
RDF format. But without explicit permission in the file it is difficult 
to be sure.
