Hey folks,

As some of you already know, our charter comes to an end in roughly two
months. This is causing concern because there are a number of RDFa
enhancements that this community would like to make to RDFa, along with
continuing the work for HTML+RDFa, and RDFa Core 1.1.

We had a fairly in-depth discussion about the creation of an RDFa
Working Group today:


That discussion was followed up in the HTML WG telecon:


Paul Cotton (HTML WG co-chair) has volunteered to review the RDFa WG
charter. I believe that a number of people on the call wanted to see an
RDFa WG charter before making any comments about the RDFa Working Group.

I thought I mentioned to the HTML WG that it would be two weeks before
we would have an RDFa WG charter ready, but it was scribed as one week.
Do you think that one week is do-able, Ben? You're the one with the
action for the RDFa WG charter.

There is an action on me to produce a list of W3C member organizations
that may be interested in supporting or taking part in the RDFa WG, so
here is a first pass (in alphabetical order and a contact, if we know of
