This GRDDL WG finished its job a while ago, but to
stay on the safe side of some open patent policy issues*, W3C
didn't formally close this WG.

It has since become more clear that the issue doesn't
affect the GRDDL WG, so this WG can be closed any time now.

Does it matter to anybody when we close this WG?

Do you have an upcoming birthday or anything, Harry? ;-)

If we close this WG, the comments list stays open,
but there's no way to come up with an answer that's
officially on behalf of the WG.

If we don't close the WG, I suppose Harry can
call a meeting any time, given a week's notice,
and we could conduct WG business; e.g. collective
action re HTML 5 head/@profile.

That might re-raise the question of availability
of W3C staff resources for the WG, too.

I've given it a little thought and I suppose I'm content
to close the WG and leave GRDDL's fate in the
hands of the community as a whole, as I said in...

The details of data in documents; GRDDL, profiles, and HTML5
