Basically, people in the WG that while of course everyone is welcome
as observers, some felt it would be unfair to give special treatment
to non-members, particularly as people in the WG pointed out they
could just join the WG and become members.

That being said, many people wanted a joint f2f between schema.org and
Social WG members, in particular given the proposed direction of AS
2.0 and Acdtions, so we're working with Ian and TPAC to find a
suitable time/place for a BOF over schema.org and Social WG.

Would Wednesday during the open-space session suit everyone?

Thursday has a number of conflicts for people in more than one WG
during TPAC.
