We're planning on doing a BoF in Orlando to discuss starting up a JSON
working group.  The BoF is currently planned for Monday afternoon at 1300
in Carribean 6.  A very preliminary version of a charter can be found here:


But obviously we'll need to build consensus on what it should actually
contain.  Please discuss on the json@ietf.org mailing list:


As a start, we know there are a couple of things we'd like to fix about
RFC 4627:

- move to standards track

A *very* important goal would be to minimize change, and to ensure strict

There are likely adjunct JSON topics that would make sense to tackle once
we've got the experts together, but the goal would be to keep that list
short, focused, and general-purpose.
