Hi Franck,

Sorry for the slowness of my response, I have been off work for most of January and am now catching up with things.

The status of getting things added to Schema.org<http://Schema.org> is that we need to demonstrate usage of the deployed markup rather than just deployments of it. This is the focus of the latest ELIXIR sponsored project which will be aiming to demonstrate benefit of the markup within specific areas: rare disease, plants, intrinsically disordered proteins, and toxicology. This work will be running over the next 23 months.

As such, we should not delay work on other types. So yes, we should progress the work on Taxon and TaxonName.

The restructuring of the website that we conducted at the tail end of last year was motivated by making it clearer as to which profiles and types are released for general use and which are still under development.

Best regards

Dear Alasdair and Leyla,

I was wondering if you had time to check my last reply in issue 309<https://github.com/BioSchemas/specifications/issues/309#issuecomment-576247584>. I was suggesting that, if endorsing of the Taxon term by schema.org<http://schema.org/> is still gonna take some time, what about trying to move directly to the new couple (Taxon, TaxonName) that we have discussed since mid-2019.

Any thoughts on this?
