From Pravir's post at
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...@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...@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.

Here are the practical details:
