Dear members,

Welcome to the new Web Thing Protocol Community Group and thank you for
your support in creating the group.

*Group Information*

You can view our Community Group page here
<https://www.w3.org/community/web-thing-protocol/>, which includes a link
to our current charter and details of mailing lists and IRC for


I would like to put myself forward as Chair for the group so that we can
get going right away. However, if there are any others who would like to
put themselves forward for the position of Chair then please reply to this
mailing list and we can trigger an election following the process described
in the charter. Note that an election can also be triggered at any point in
the future.


Following feedback in the WoT IG/WG call last week
<https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wot-ig/2019Oct/0002.html> I
have made a minor change in terminology to the charter
<https://benfrancis.github.io/web-thing-protocol-charter/> to replace
occurrences of the term "protocol binding" with the term "sub-protocol" for
clarity. Otherwise, I expect this to be our charter going forward (unless
any further issues
<https://github.com/benfrancis/web-thing-protocol-charter/issues> arise).


I have requested the creation of a GitHub repository to use for writing
reports. I expect the next step to be defining use cases and requirements,
before starting on a specification. I will report back here when a GitHub
repository is set up and send out a call to collect use cases and


I have no immediate plans to schedule any conference calls or dedicated
in-person meetups and expect the majority of collaboration in this group to
be over GitHub, IRC and this mailing list. We can of course schedule calls
as and when that becomes necessary.


In the meantime, please feel free to introduce yourself to the group by
replying to this email.

I am Ben Francis, I work on Mozilla WebThings <https://iot.mozilla.org/wot/>
at the Mozilla Corporation <https://www.mozilla.org> and am based in the UK.

I look forward to working with you all!


Ben Francis
