The Schema.org Community Group serves as the public discussion forum for the schema.org project.
As an independent project, Schema.org has its own steering group (chaired by R.V.Guha) and site terms of service. All updates, changes and improvements to schema.org are now proposed, discussed and debated within the public Schema.org Community Group at W3C. The focus of this page and nearby materials is on day-to-day practicalities. A more general overview of how the schema.org project works is also available.
The chair of the W3C Community Group (Dan Brickley) also serves as the Schema.org project webmaster, managing the workflow between the Community Group (CG) and Steering Group (SG). The project makes periodic new releases based on rough consensus in the CG, with the final approval of the SG. SG members also participate directly in the CG, whose discussions are often more active and detailed in schema.org’s Github repository than in the CG’s mailing list.
Please do not use this Community Group as a mechanism for reporting bugs and problems with specific search engine’s products and features – company-specific sites are more effective for these topics.
In future this page should grow to serve as a hub for practical information about schema.org collaborations.
