Meta: schema.org planning #1
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 and organize them into rough milestones. The most concrete milestone is the next upcoming release, which we give a (slightly cryptic) issue name e.g. sdo-ganymede that can be used to name Git branches, test sites etc. without forcing us to decide its ultimate version number. Other milestones are named for years or (more commonly) quarters, e.g. Q3 2015.
We try to avoid unlabelled issues. The most important labels and entry points are:
Github offers various views that can be useful, in particular issues listed by Milestone and Label will help. Please take a look for an existing discussion before creating new issues.
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
