Hi Web Fonts WG,

IETF has just launched the justfont working group, with One Job(TM): to
define a top-level media type for font and initial registrations in it.
Per the charter, we're aiming to get that work started and completed
quickly.

If you're interested in helping, please subscribe to the IETF mailing
list, as described below:

Thanks!
--Wendy (W3C team and co-chair of the newly created group)

Charter:

This Working Group is chartered to define the "font" top-level media
type, as per RFC6838 Section 4.2.7.

The following activities are in-scope:
- Defining criteria for "font" registrations
- Defining common parameters (or ways to accommodate them) between
  "font" registrations
- Making initial registrations in "font"

The working group will use draft-lilley-font-toplevel as a starting
point.

It is expected that the group will have a liaison relationship with and
see participation from members of the W3C WebFonts Working Group.

Milestones:
  Apr 2016 - Submit "font" media type definition to the IESG
