The Robustness and Archiving Community Group has been launched:
The goal of this community is to design web architecture and specifications to mitigate problems such as link rot, content drift, Internet censorship, and denial-of-service attacks. If, after following a hyperlink, the content is missing or not what you expected, we want it to be easier to find what you were looking for.
In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-05-08 by Ryan Westphal. The following people supported its creation: Ryan Westphal, Nick Doty, Olivier Thereaux, Karl Dubost, Matisse VerDuyn. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of its activities.
The group now has access to W3C-hosted services for email, blog, wikis, irc, tracking tools, and more. Read more about tools and services available by default and upon request.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on firstname.lastname@example.org
