W3C Community on Vocabularies

Dear all,

I'd like to help organize a W3C Community on vocabularies.  Potential members
would include maintainers of vocabularies (DC, FOAF, SKOS, AGROVOC, BIBO,
GoodRelations, schema.org...).  Issues would include:

-- Long-term preservation of vocabularies: By what mechanism
   should archival responsibility devolve to memory institutions (see,
   e.g., [3]).?
-- Alignments: How should alignments be expressed and by what models
   (e.g., third parties or vocabulary maintainers themselves)?
-- Maintenance best practice: e.g., versioning and tools.

These and other issues were discussed at the LOD-LAM Summit in
June [1] and will be taken up in a meeting on vocabulary maintenance
and alignments on 21 September in The Hague [2].
