Reference implementations would be great, if freely usable (FLOSS
licens ?)

Test suites and example code, in many languages, and under FLOSS
licences is definitely something that I see would be very important in
ensuring people can learn from code.

> 2) Guidance

OSLC specs can be frightening (dunno how printed versions would look
like, but certainly becoming a nice little book now) : it looks as if
many things need to be learned and implemented up-front, whereas, to be
OSLC-Core compliant, just a few things are really "MUST" specs, IMHO.
That's particularly the case when people imagine that they have to learn
REST and AJAX, XML/RDF and JSON all at once for instance (and when they
don't have experience with either of these for example if coming from a
traditional LAMP background).

Some kind of "tutorial" clearly helping learn OSLC specs, starting with
mandatory aspects and going along "decreasing" priorities of various
specs requirements would be very much appreciated, I think.

At least, that's what we have received as a common feedback during the
recently help Paris OSLC meetup next to OWF 2010 [0]

Hope this helps.
