Subject Re: Mentors wanted for Apache Annotator (incubating)
Date Sun, 14 Oct 2018 11:41:06 GMT
Hi, Benjamin--

I'm very interested in Annotator (especially, as an apache Jena committer, from the linked
data side) so I'd be happy to mentor.

Web Annotation specifications [1] and writing browser and server code to eventually replace
much of the tooling originally provided by Annotator.js [2]. However, our goal is *not* to
ship a full UX for doing annotation, but rather a set of tools to enable developers to ship
annotation capabilities within their applications.
