About Schema.org

Schema.org is a collaborative, community activity with a mission to create, maintain, and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet. In addition to people from the sponsoring companies, there is substantial participation by the larger web community, through public mailing lists such as public-vocabs@w3.org and through GitHub. See the releases page for more details.

Since April 2015, the W3C Schema.org Community Group is the main forum for schema collaboration, and provides the public-schemaorg@w3.org mailing list for discussions. Schema.org issues are tracked on GitHub.

The day to day operations of Schema.org, including decisions regarding the schema, are handled by a steering group, which includes representatives of the sponsor companies, a representative of the W3C and a small number of individuals who have contributed substantially to Schema.org. Discussions of the steering group are public.
