Hi Zoe,
thanks for joining the list and welcome! :)
I'm sure that your knowledge on Open Fashion Design will be really 
helpful for us!

For a recap, you can check our blog here:

We usually write a blogpost every time there is a sort of milestone or 
we are re having a look at the current status of the discussion.

You can also check the past archives of the mailing list here:

Check also the repository of the Definition on GitHub and its issues, 
part of the discussion is taking place also there (even though I'll try 
to mirror it in the mailing list every now and then):
