Joshua, thank you very much for sharing this with the group.

I know the amount of work that is going in to the JDX project [1] and 
recognize that this represents a significant application of schema.org 
(expanded through reference to HR Open and analysis of use cases) for 
signaling information about hiring requirements.

I would like to direct people's attention to the column in the main 
table headed "comparison to schema.org". I propose that *this 
information should factor highly in our prioritization of what specific 
issues this group addresses***as it represents strong feedback on where 
the existing terms in schema.org needed to be refined or supplemented in 
order to meet talent signaling use cases. This is not to say that I 
think we should just copy every change indicated by this column, there 
will be some which are specific to the JDX and out of scope for 
schema.org, and there may be cases where input from this community 
improves on what JDX have done so far.

If the group agrees, I will edit our existing list of issues and use 
case requirements [2 
to include the information from that column.

So that this document and other relevant work from elsewhere doesn't get 
buried in our email archive, I have added a page to the wiki on existing 
and current relevant work [3 
with a link.

Best regards from a warm and sunny Scotland.


1. I'll remind you all here of my disclosure that I am receiving funding 
from the US CCF for my work on this group and am also a member of the 
JDX Data Working Group.
