Hi all,

We're working on standardising a mechanism for discovering and
delivering notifications where the notification contents are in RDF. We
call it *Linked Data Notifications* (LDN) [1]. Catchy!

Notifications can be about anything: a personal message from a friend;
an announcement; a comment on a blog post; a pointer to an annotation,
an invitation to collaborate; a calendar reminder, a changelog...

The spec is currently a Candidate Recommendation with the W3C Social Web
Working Group, and we hope to take it to Proposed Recommendation
sometime soon. We would benefit greatly from new implementations; they
can be Sender, Receiver, or Consumer. Or have more than one role. There
is a test suite for all [2].

LDP implementations are considered to be conforming LDN Receiver out of
the box! So, if you have an LDP implementation, we'd like to see your
implementation report. The test literally takes a second [3] if you have
a public inbox (ldp:Container basically), at least for testing purposes.

The reports submitted so far are accessible from here [4].

The implementations themselves are fairly straight-forward (based on
feedback we've received). The Sender implementation for example is
relatively trivial. The Consumer is considered to me next in line, and
the Receiver implementation is a little more involving since it needs to
be able to communicate with both with Senders and Consumers.

To advertise an Inbox where a resource can receive notifications, all
you have to do is e.g.:

<http://example.org/foo> ldp:inbox <http://example.net/inbox/> .

We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in trying out any part
of this, either personally or as part of a project.

Questions and comments are welcome on IRC [5] or the WG mailing list [6].
