Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

The mission of the SHACL Community Group is to continue the development
of SHACL-related specifications and to support the further adoption of
SHACL after the  W3C Data Shapes Working Group  has ended. Desirable
outcomes include the development of educational material (primers, best
practices), the application of SHACL to frequently used RDF
vocabularies, libraries of constraint components for common constraint
types, improved integration with established technologies such as
JavaScript, further work on theory and practice around SHACL rules, a
compact SHACL syntax, and a SHACL internet protocol. Additional work may
go into delivering "de-facto standard" fixes to some gaps left in the
current SHACL specifications (e.g., handling recursion, and addressing
more comprehensive syntax checks).


Thank you,

W3C Community Development Team
