A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.

List address:
To subscribe:

For matching and selecting parts of a data item tree, XML has XPath.  In 2007, Stefan Goessner proposed JSONPath as an analogue for JSON.  This format has seen wide use, with dozens of implementations, but has not yet been formally standardized.  The conditions for standardizing now seem to align.  This mailing list is intended for discussing the creation of an IETF activity for this (likely in the form of a WG), initially by agreeing a proposed charter for this WG.  This charter proposal will then receive further discussion in the DISPATCH WG.  Concurrently, discussions about technical issues in JSONPath standardization are also welcome.

This list belongs to IETF area: ART
