New drafts, archived drafts/spec, and new microformats in general.
1. New drafts.
have shown fairly broad publishing support, and are consumed by
popular/mainstream sites/applications (e.g. search engines), I've
added them as "Drafts" per the microformats process.
2. Archived drafts/spec
In addition, I created a new section "Archived" (Ben Ward's
suggestion) to collect microformats that haven't really taken off,
that is appear to lack any major publishing/consuming support and have
moved the following there:
* robots exclusion
If anyone knows of major publishing support or major consuming support
for any of these, please add links to such sites/applications to the
spec pages' respective "Examples in the Wild" *-examples-in-wild or
"Implementation" *-implementations sections/pages respectively and we
can reconsider accordingly, or perhaps they'll be used as informative
data/research in the development of future microformats.
For more on this see:
3. new microformats in general - let's use microformats2 syntax only.
While the subtopic of new microformats in general may be more
appropriate for "microformats-new" (and perhaps we can fork it there
if discussion appears substantial), I thought it made sense to
introduce this within the broader context of microformat spec
transitions (forward/backward) in general and thus it's here.
Since microformats2 has been stable for quite some time now and we're
starting to see publishing on individual and organization sites ,
for all the advantages provided by microformats2 over classic
microformats, at this point I think it makes the most sense to develop
any new microformats using microformat2 syntax *only*, and that
includes any exploratory discussions in progress.
As an example of this I'm restarting the citation microformat
effort, with a simplified proposal using microformats2 syntax,
based on an in-person brainstorm of a serendipitous meeting of
web-citation-interested-parties during the recent IndieWebCamp
2012. I'll follow-up with that on the microformats-new list when
I've posted a new proposal to the wiki.
