Federation outreach

How can we get major players in federated social web (GNU Social, Diaspora, Friendica, to participate in this WG?

Issue tracker

We're tracking issues on Github (for AS 2.0) and the W3C tracker. Is this a problem?

Proposal: require JSON-LD compacted serialization

See Github Issue-48

Proposal: remove "rel" from as:Link

See Github Issue-47

Proposal: remove "Natural Language Value"

See Github Issue-46

Proposal: remove as:Link

as:Link brings possibly unneeded and confusing indirection
