Apologies for any cross postings.

At its recent conference in Beijing, the TDWG Executive/TAG approved the
formation of a task group on vocabulary management. It goes by the acronym
VoMaG (Vocabulary MAnagement Group). 

A revised charter
mag-charter-v1), outlining the goals and mode of working of the group is
available on the GBIF community site
(http://community.gbif.org/pg/groups/21382/vocabulary-management/). In the
absence of a functioning TDWG site, we intend to use this site as the
meeting place for discussions, sharing docs, etc. 

Please consider joining VoMaG as a core member. You should email me and also
register on the GBIF community site. You can log in using OpenID if you have
a Google or Yahoo account. Once the core group is established, we can
proceed with developing a work programme/timeline to achieve our goals.

With regards,
Éamonn Ó Tuama
