This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2018-07-26 by Brandon Beacher. The following people supported its creation: Brandon Beacher, Raymond Meibaum, Alfredo Boccalandro, Andy Gmitter, Christi Schneider. 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.
