      Changes

See https://w3c.github.io/activitystreams/core/#changelog and 
https://w3c.github.io/activitystreams/vocab/#changelog


      Requirements satisfied

No formal requirements. Charter says:

    The Working Group, in conjunction with Social Interest Group, will
    determine the use cases that derive the requirements for the
    deliverables. Features that are not implemented due to time
    constraints can be put in a non-normative "roadmap" document for
    future work. The scope will include:

    A transfer syntax for social data such as activities (such as status
    updates) should include at least the ability to describe the data
    using URIs in an extensible manner, time-stamping, and should
    include a serialization compatible with Javascript (JSON) and
    possibly JSON-LD. Formats based on XML or other data serializations
    are out-of-scope.

    https://www.w3.org/2013/socialweb/social-wg-charter

The group produced:

  * several type of analyses
    <https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg#Social_Data_Syntax>
  * a large enumeration of user stories
    <https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg/Social_API/User_stories>
  * requirements for WG deliverables
    <https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg/Social_API/Requirements>


      Dependencies met (or not)
