Thanks for keeping us posted, Phil. Could you clarify a little on the
expected relationship between JDX (seemingly a US-oriented effort), the
TalentSignal CG, and initiatives from elsewhere in the world. Should non-US
experts (e.g. things like ESCO, https://ec.europa.eu/esco/portal/home)
liaise directly with JDX or is the expectation to use the new W3C forum for
those interactions? Is the TalentSignal CG itself internationally oriented
or focussed on the US? http://www.pesc.org/home.html and
https://hropenstandards.org/ and many of the other stakeholders around JDX
naturally take a more global perspective so I don't want to over-state the
issue, but it would be good to understand your approach. It would be also
be particularly good to have explicit engagement with any parties
*consuming* JobPosting markup, as well as those publishing it...
