Charter for Working Group

Javascript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight, text-based,
language-independent data interchange format. It was derived from the
ECMAScript Programming Language Standard, and is published in RFC 7159.

The WG will work on an restricted profile of JSON designed to maximize
interoperability. The work will start from draft-bray-i-json-01.

The WG will work on a format for a streamable sequence of JSON texts.
The work will start from draft-williams-json-text-sequence-00.
