    • URI Selection WG
      • No new updates since the presentation to Steering Committee meeting
      • Primary topic at that meeting was the proposal to create a Hyrax vocabulary manager working group - Steering is contemplating that now.

      • Collecting examples of resources types, to be included in domain model
      • Geospatial interest group may soon be revived; looking at incorporating folks from the GeoBlacklight community (see Doodle poll -- and email James Griffin to get in the loop)
    • Machine-readable Metadata Modeling Specification (M3) WG
      • Some slow down but getting close to deliverables (YAML file, JSON schema for meta-metadata properties, and identification of appropriate serializations for schema)
      • Question of ongoing governance and where a maintenance plan fits into the charge of a Working Group; will continue to benefit from updates as experiments continue
      • Future/new iterations of this WG may take a form similar to the URI Selection WG, handling queries and maintenance projects as they arise
        • M3 WG will meet tomorrow and consider models for future WG
