Call for Participation in syndicated.media Community Group

The syndicated.media Community Group has been launched:


An open community group focused on the technical and production aspects of podcasting and other applications of media distributed via feeds. Current areas of interest include extending RSS to support the modern needs of producers and their content; standardizing host and client behavior; improving the availability and accuracy of metrics and analytics; establishing and publishing best practices for de facto standards that have been adopted in the industry; thinking about the future of podcasting and needs that may arise.


In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2017-06-05 by Chris Quamme Rhoden. The following people supported its creation: Chris Quamme Rhoden, Stephen Hallgren, Ryan Cavis, Beejay Morgan, Dane Cardiel, Tomislav Novak. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at site-comments@w3.org

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
