W3C "Web Schemas" group is our new public feedback forum

Our Discussion Group will be moving to the W3C forum, which will use the public-vocabs@w3.org mailing list.
The Schema.org Google Group will not be completely shut down, however we do encourage all discussion of vocabulary, schema and deployment practicalities to move to public-vocabs@w3.org mailing list. These are also linked from the Documents page.

This comes out of a plan for closer collaboration between Schema.org and other related efforts. The Web standards organization W3C has created two related task forces of its Semantic Web Interest Group that are relevant for Schema.org. One is devoted to the technicalities of syntax and other one, "Web Schemas" is for vocabulary discussions. We have decided to adopt this forum as a new home for Schema.org feedback, since it provides a natural connection point to related efforts from other groups and communities.

The W3C group is open to all, and will have a Wiki and issue tracker to help organize feedback; not only for Schema.org but for other Web Schemas who are interested to collaborate. We hope this will give rise to collaborations, mappings and shared modeling styles.

Looking forward to greater opportunities for collaboration.

    So now where should we forward any comments & feedback for http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets ?

    On the Schema.org Google Group or the new mailing list?
