Issue #1 tracks high-level plans for schema.org. It gives entry points for release-level issues as well as broader goals that correspond to rough milestones over the next year. In practice, these goals are pretty hit-and-miss w.r.t. people actually doing the necessary work, but they are reported here as aspirations and for discussion.
We label issues by topic, workflow status. The most concrete milestone is the next upcoming release, which since April 2019 are monthly, officially on (and named for) the 1st of the month, but in practice released on the first working day following. Work in progress edits can be found on webschemas.org.
We try to avoid unlabelled issues. The most important labels and entry points are:
Historical Meeting agenda and notes
Steering Group background
Elaborating on http://schema.org/docs/about.html -
The day to day operations of Schema.org, including decisions regarding the schema, are handled by a steering group, which includes representatives of the sponsor companies and a small number of individuals who have contributed substantially to Schema.org and related standards. The steering group typically makes decisions by consensus. All members of the steering group have the same standing. The steering group is currently chaired by R.V.Guha, who does not represent his employer in this capacity. Discussions of the steering group are public, see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/schema-org-sg (very rarely used; more often CC:'d threads with the W3C Community Group public list).
