Hi all,

RDF* is gaining traction, with more and more implementations; but to avoid
fragmentation, we need to build a consensus and a stable specification for

To achieve this goal, Olaf and I have started drafting a Community Group
report, which is available here:


Great! Thanks for starting this.

+1. Thanks for getting us into gear :)

Please note that:

* the actual dates are not relevant, only the day-of-week and timeslots (I
chose dates after Europe and US switch to DST, to see how the timeslots
align in the longer term, but we can start earlier if needed);

* the timeslots are within working(ish) hours for both Europe and US, as it
seems that most people on the mailing list are in these regions; sincere
apologies for the others -- if you really want to participate but can not
join on any of the proposed slot, let us know.

Yeah, the bane of living in Australia is that such meetings are often
impossible to attend. None of the times work for me but I will try to
contribute in written form, esp working towards
https://github.com/w3c/rdf-star/issues/9 which we consider critical before
we can fully migrate from our home-grown reification solution to RDF*.

Another +1 (another Aussie resident here).

Like Holger, I'll focus on contributing asynchronously. My current focus is
on query result syntax format standardization (I've opened 2 issues for
this, see https://github.com/w3c/rdf-star/issues/12
<https://github.com/w3c/rdf-star/issues/13> and
https://github.com/w3c/rdf-star/issues/13), which I'd be happy to try and
write some draft specs for as well. As far as I'm aware there is little
real controversy on the topic, just a need to come up with a single variant
that gets a "community stamp".
