Since 2001, CDL has served as the incubator for ARK infrastructure, consisting primarily of the specification, a registry of organizations using ARKs, and a global resolver service. Now, to achieve long-term sustainability, the ARK infrastructure must emerge from CDL and mature in partnership with multiple organizations and community participants to guide its future.
ARK outreach efforts will include:
- Assembling and consulting with an ARK advisory group,- Developing procedures for shared maintenance of the organizational registry,- Consulting with the wider ARK community on requirements, priorities and models for shared community and infrastructure management, - Guiding the ARK specification through the IETF Informational RFC process, as well as,- Participating in an initiative to gauge the scope of ARK usage world-wide.
