The Distributed Trace Context Community Group has been proposed by Sergey Kanzhelev:

The mission of this group is to define the standard for distributed trace context propagation. Distributed trace context is used to enable monitoring and diagnostics scenarios in micro-services environment. It consists of request identifiers and key properties that needs to be propagated from one micro-service to another. These identifiers and properties are used to analyze an end-to-end distributed traces.

The group primary objective is to publish a specification for the protocols to use for distributed trace context propagation. Protocol includes wire format and recommended scenarios to use these protocols in applications, web servers, libraries, and platforms. The group also targets to produce reference implementation for some languages. 

Making trace context propagation protocols vendor neutral enables monitoring and diagnostics scenarios that are hard to achieve otherwise. Authors of libraries, web servers, and application performance management (APM) vendors who are interested to improve micro-services monitoring and diagnostics story are encouraged to participate in this group.

You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and people can join to begin work. In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account.

Once launched, the group will no longer be listed as "proposed"; it will be in the list of current groups.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on site-comments@w3.org

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
