Thanks for your leadership and the effort’s Digital Bazaar has made to get us to this point! Your continued participation, through review and implementation support will be most helpful. Also, there are some technical aspects of hosting and supporting json-ld.org that you’re critical in.

I’m happy to take on the role of Chair for the group, but welcome anyone else that is interested, as there’s much to do.

At this point, I think it best to accept PR 425 [1] and use this as the basis for further change proposals to drive discussion on moving the specs forward. Without objection, I will do so in the next couple of days.
