Dear all, I am pleased to announce that W3C has formally sent an advance
notice [1] to its membership on the  development of the "Open License
Expression Working Group Charter” [2].

In essence, the OLE WG will take the ODRL Community Group Final
Specifications through the W3C standardisation process.
At the conclusion, all our work will become formally recognised as W3C
Standards.

The advance notice will allow the current W3C Members to discuss the draft
charter and formally review it (so not a 100% guaranteed outcome just yet).

If approved, we can then (as a group) finalise the charter and begin the
transition work.

This is just the first step in a (very) long journey for some of the ODRL
community, and the next step for its future!

Cheers...
Renato Iannella
