Very minor corrections and emendations to the text. Merge annotated and simple versions of the definition.
After a final period in which to solicit feedback version 1.0 was released in July 2006. At the same time the project was moved from http://www.okfn.org/okd/ to https://opendefinition.org/okd/
Further feedback led to another minor revision (v0.2.1) in May 2006.
In response to that feedback a second draft (v0.2) was released in October 2005 and publicly posted on the OKF website at http://www.okfn.org/okd/.
The first version (v0.1) of the definition was drafted in August 2005 and was circulated to, among others, Peter Suber, Cory Doctorow, Tim Hubbard, Peter Murray-Rust, Jo Walsh and Prodromos Tsiavos.
