All,

I was wondering if there was any interest in meeting at TPAC 2016 (see below for more information).

I personally think it would be a great idea to meet in person and make some progress on the many pending issues and PR that we currently have. TPAC is also a good opportunity for reaching out to a larger community. Also, it looks like a lot of people are talking about tooling, which is a great interest of mine.

I work on www.apple.com, and like many websites, a struggle of ours is to deal with all the Structured Data approaches. So I was also curious to see if there was interest in a more general discussion around standardizing those Structured Data approaches, likely around Schema.org as that's where we see the most traction.

We have basically 2 weeks to make a decision and bring it to the W3C.

Best,
Alexandre
