I asked a couple of the WICG chairs if they thought it reasonable and appropriate to use their discourse instance as discussed on yesterday’s PC call. Received a ‘go for it’ response from Marcos.

> We are going to hold a joint online W3C - OGC workshop on standardizing Web maps. We hope to have global participation, with one to two-hour sessions each day over the course of two weeks. Each topic presented by particpants will fall under a "theme", and talks will be recorded and posted online. We are going to invite participants, and the public, to discuss the topics presented. We would like to use Discourse to host each of these topics; the top post in each topic will be a link to and description of the presentation. Discussion will then follow. The objective of our group overall is to standardize Web maps, hopefully as part of HTML, so that users will benefit. We hope to engage geospatial developers, Web browser and Web standards developers. We are definitely aware of https://discourse.wicg.io/, but we hope to start a mapping specific set of conversations with our workshop, scheduled for late September. If all goes well the conversation will ensue for some time after the workshop, and potentially grow (hopefully, but who knows). Our workshop web site is here: https://www.w3.org/2020/maps/ Thanks for your consideration! Peter Rushforth
