Section 2 of the new Vocabulary Maintenance Specification [1] specifies 
that a TDWG vocabulary standard should be maintained by an interest 
group charged specifically with the maintenance of that vocabulary.  Of 
our two current vocabulary standards, Darwin Core now has a maintenance 
interest group.  However, a maintenance interest group has not yet been 
chartered for Audubon Core.

The upcoming Darwin Core hour [2] on Audubon Core and 3D Biodiversity 
Data has provided the impetus to start work on chartering an Audubon 
Core Maintenance Group.  One of the key tasks of this group would be to 
shepherd requests for changes and additions to Audubon Core.  If there 
are terms that should be added to Audubon Core to describe 3D 
biodiversity data, the maintenance group needs to be in place to make 
those additions happen.

I have volunteered to work on getting a charter together for the Audubon 
Core Maintenance Group.  If you are interested in serving as a core 
member of that group, please contact me and copy the group convener, Bob 
Morris (morris.bob at gmail.com).  In your email, please give a brief 
indication of your interests and area(s) of expertise.
