To whom it may concern

This week, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) released a large volume of
schedule data at http://www.fahrplanfelder.ch/fahrplandaten. The feedback
was mixed, from a happy "Yeah! Finally! Congratulations!" to lukewarm hints
at discrepancies with opendefinition.org - but in any case this move
creates new potentials, new questions, and a new need to coordinate. How
could the community work together to create open tools to work with this
data, to transform it into other formats, to make it used and useful? Who's
in, with what goals?

Let's find out, and let's make a plan - so let's meet. If interested,
please fill in https://doodle.com/9ikwneuq4b7v5is9 - most practical place
is Zurich, but please let me know if you'd like to participate from abroad,
as this probably will turn out to be an international Hafas challenge. The
meeting will also serve as the kickoff of Opendata.ch's Transport Working
Group, if so decided by the participants.

Sending kind regards,
Hannes Gassert
