The JavaScript community has already some implementations and much
experience with RDF-Interfaces. So I would continue the work in the RDF
JavaScript Community Group. Also this is just a small detail. And I'm
happy about everyone who is interested in work on the spec.

That was also my impression. And that's also the reason why I created a
new spec for the extensions. If there are parts of RDF-Ext we can very
fast agree on, maybe we can include them in RDF-Interfaces. Other things
mentioned on the mailing list (e.g. query stuff) should be covered in
different specs, so we don't get lost in details. Renaming it to
RDF-Interfaces-Core would be an option.

Is it possible for a community group to work on a spec for the REC
track? Beside the work on the spec, what must be done to get RDF-Interfaces

- again on the REC track?
- on the charter of a proper WG?

Anyway I create a GitHub repository to work on the spec [1]. If there is
a WG which would cover RDF-Interfaces next year, we have much time to
prepare stuff in the community group. My idea is to create everything
required for the REC/WG so we just have to change labels.

We should schedule a initial teleconference to see who is interested and
discuss the first tasks/issues.
