Hello,

This is an advance notice that the Distributed Trace Context Community 
Group[1] is exploring the creation of a Distributed Tracing Working 
Group, as described in this proposed draft charter:

    https://w3c.github.io/distributed-tracing/charter.html

Beginning with a trace context draft produced by the Community Group:

https://w3c.github.io/distributed-tracing/report-trace-context.html

the group proposes to define formats to pass trace context information 
across systems, with the goal of sharing this with the community so that 
various tracing and diagnostics products can operate together. The 
proposed scope of the group is the definition of data formats and 
headers enabling the propagation and correlation of tracing data across 
different implementations.

We would welcome input and feedback before starting the formal review, 
planned for March 2018. Ideally, discussions should happen via issues 
raised on the Community Group's GitHub repository:

     https://github.com/w3c/distributed-tracing/issues

Alternatively, discussion can also happen on the (archived [2]) mailing 
list of the Community Group:

     public-trace-context@w3.org

Members may also discuss on w3c-ac-forum@w3.org.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Wendy Seltzer <wseltzer@w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 5.2.2 of the W3C Process Document:

Thank you,
