RE: No SDW-IG meeting tomorrow (29 Apr) - reschedule for next week?

Hi all - No meeting tomorrow (Thu 6 May 2021) as we don't have enough content.

Looking ahead to our next meeting in 3-weeks time, here are some possible agenda items:

1/ Continuing the HTTP redirect discussion

No response so far. Rob Atkinson / Josh Leiberman - is this something that you like to progress.

2/ Geofencing

Scott Simmons is interested - but not available this time around. Definitely a topic for next time.

3/ Updates to the Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices

Congrats to Clara Boyd for getting the Best Practice work underway. They have their own separate sub-group meetings scheduled, so head there for specific discussion on the SDW-BP. We'll bring it back to plenary when issues arise.

4/ Anything else?

  1.  Proposal from Peter Rushforth to provide an update on progress in the Maps for HTML Community Group (linking spatial data, and on map and feature accessibility) and solicit feedback on next steps.
  2.  Proposal from Chris Little to echo OGC interest and talk about SOLID [1] to determine if there's any impact on the SDW Best Practices. Josh Lieberman notes that this might be a good way to draw TimBL back into engagement with the OGC. Ted Guild (in probably his final email as our team contact) said that Lalana Kagal at MIT would also be an excellent person to invite to SOLID discussion.

So for our meeting at the end of May, the tentative agenda is: (2), (4a) and (4b). How does that sound? Is there anything else you'd like to prioritise?

Best regards, Jeremy

Subject: No SDW-IG meeting tomorrow (29 Apr) - reschedule for next week?

Good morning/day/evening all.

The next SDW-IG call is scheduled for tomorrow. But we've had a hiccup in the planning. Linda and I have had overlapping holiday and not enough communication. Which means that we don't have any confirmed topics for discussion.

So I think it's best that we cancel tomorrow's meeting and reschedule for next week if there are things we want to discuss in the plenary.

Potential topics are:
1/ Continuing the HTTP redirect discussion (see our previous discussion here [1])
2/ Geofencing (see email discussion thread [2])
3/ Updates to the Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices
4/ Anything else?

Please let me know by Monday 3rd May if you're interested in discussing these topics or any others. I'll be looking for people to get the discussion started on any suggested topic - so bare that in mind :-)

If there's interest in meeting next week I suggest Thursday 6th May. Looking at times, I think we can offer some variation from our normal 60 min slot: 11.00 UTC, 12.00 UTC, and 13.00 UTC. Please let me know your preference, otherwise we'll stick with the normal 13.00 UTC.

Also - just to remind you that Clara has started work on updating the Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices. The next sub-team meeting is scheduled for Monday 10 May. Dial in details are here [3]

And finally - Ted Guild is moving on from W3C at the end of this month. I'd like to thank Ted for all his support and guidance during his tenure as our W3C team contact. Hopefully we will have news on our new team contact shortly. We'll likely see Ted around as he'll still be involved in developing Web standards. Ted: best of luck in the new job!

Best regards, Jeremy
