With your support, the Openactive Community Group has been launched:

This group was originally proposed on 2016-04-09
by Nick Evans. The following people supported its
      Nick Evans
      Nishal Desai
      Luke Winship
      Dominic Fennell
      Tom Oakley
To join the group, please use:

Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

This group's mission is to discuss and prepare data and API
specifications which facilitate the use of open and shared data relating
to sport and physical activity. We have so far used
http://www.openactive.io (along with https://github.com/openactive and
Google Docs) to facilitate our work, supported by the Open Data
Institute, and created an initial set of specifications within our open
group of organisations. We would now like to progress our group to
become a W3C CG, sharing our work with the wider community. The group
will base its work on existing standards as much as possible, and re-use
existing terms wherever appropriate. The group will seek consensus
around, and support for, these specifications which may then be brought
to an appropriate Working Group to advance a specification from draft to
standard. The group will seek to coordinate as appropriate with the Web
Schemas Task Force of the Semantic Web Interest Group and other relevant
groups within the W3C.

Thank you,

W3C Community Development Team
