To: "'W3C Public Annotation List'" <public-annotation@w3.org>
Message-ID: <007101d2620c$66b2d010$34187030$@illinois.edu>
Implementers  and developers should of course feel free to post implementation related questions and comments to this list for the duration of the Web Annotation Working Group charter (scheduled to expire 28 February), but please note that after the WG has completed its work, the responsibility for keeping the discussion open with developers, implementers and with the community more broadly will shift back to the Open Annotation W3C Community Group (which was also involved at the origin of this WG, but has been relatively quiescent since the WG started work). 


The Open Annotation Community Group has its own public listserv and separate membership. We also anticipate going forward that CG members will help check the validity of reported errata, discuss issues raised on the w3c/web-annotation and w3c/web-annotation-test gitHub repositories (which we expect will continue beyond February, albeit more quietly), and may put forward extensions and new features that could inform and contribute to any next version(s) of the Web Annotation Recommendations.


For more information about the Open Annotation Community Group and to join if you are not already a member, please visit the CG's Home Page: 



Note - membership in W3C Community Groups is open to all without fee. For more about W3C Community Groups, please see:



Looking forward to lots of developer and implementation focused discussions resuming on the Open Annotation W3C Community Group's public listserv in the new year.
