To: RDF WG <public-rdf-wg@w3.org>
To prepare for the telecon tomorrow, I thought I'd go through the RDF WG
charter and find all resolutions made related to JSON-LD over the past year.

The charter text on RDF and JSON is pretty straight-forward:

http://www.w3.org/2010/09/rdf-wg-charter#scope

"""
Define and standardize a JSON Syntax for RDF (see the Workshop result
page for further references). The goal is to provide an RDF
serialization as complete as possible (including to multiple graphs and
graph stores, see work item listed below), but features may be ignored
and special syntax features may be introduced if that would greatly
facilitate the adoption of the JSON encoding by the Web Application
developersí community.
"""

The current JSON-LD specs being published by this group achieve
everything stated above in the charter, which is good. I hadn't looked
at the charter text in a long time and it's nice to find out that we're
aligned quite nicely with it.

This is also a deliverable in the charter:

 * RDF JSON Syntax Specification

This also means that if this group decides to not publish JSON-LD as a
REC, that they'd have to come up with an alternate RDF/JSON mechanism to
achieve the charter requirement or chose to fore-go publication of an
RDF in JSON mechanism.

Resolutions
-----------

Other than the resolutions to publish JSON-LD Syntax and JSON-LD API as
a FPWD, this is the only other resolution this group has made regarding
JSON-LD:

RESOLVED: RDF-WG to publish JSON-LD syntax spec, and stripped-down
version of JSON-LD API spec with framing and normalization removed, as
FPWD, with intention to go on recommendation track

 -- http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/meeting/2012-05-30#resolution_2

Hopefully, tomorrow will result in a few more /concrete/ resolutions
related to exactly how the RDF / JSON-LD alignment should happen.
