Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

In July we sent the advance notice [1] that the team was considering a 
charter for a Working Group on RDF Literal Direction. The same notice 
has also been sent to various, dedicated mailing lists to get a wider 
response from the community.

Unfortunately, the number of responses expressing interest in this new 
work and providing the necessary technical feedback, has been very low, 
which seems to indicate that starting up a Working Group would not be a 
successful endeavor.

As a consequence, the plan is to stop developing a Working Group 
charter. Instead, we are considering looking at another, less ambitious 
technical solution to the original problem [2] within the framework of 
either an existing or a new Community Group. The goal is to publish a 
technical proposal in the form of a Community Group report. Community 
Groups Reports are not standards-track documents but may become input to 
the standards process [3].

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Ivan Herman <>, Richard Ishida <>, or Wendy 
Seltzer <>.

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Ivan Herman, Publishing Technical Lead,
Richard Ishida, Internationalization Champion,
Wendy Seltzer, W3C Strategy Lead;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
