The W3C is happy to use one of the rooms during its "BOF" sessions on
Wednesday morning for a meeting around schema.org, Actions, and the
Social WG.

The meeting would be open to *everyone* at TPAC, not just Social WG
members and those from schema.org.

I hope this works for everyone!

The schedule is here:


A room will be reserved with this pre-set topic for 9:15 AM. We can
then continue as needed. Does this work for everyone?
