Discussion of Process to Register IIIF API Extensions

IIIF Editors - IIIF (International)

Abstract: As the IIIF Community continues to expand and experiment, we need a robust and fair method to advertise the existence of extensions to the specifications. These extensions can add important functionality for specific communities or use cases, and are often valuable to share broadly without needing the full specification process. Extensions that are broadly adopted are more likely to be included in future versions of the specifications. This session is to discuss the best method to manage registration of extensions and the maintenance of the registries.
