Hello and welcome to another edition of This Month in Solid!
Solid is a set of open specifications, built on existing open standards, that describes how to build applications in such a way that users can conveniently switch between data storage providers and application providers and take the data generated along.
This is a monthly summary of Solid progress.

|What is the scope of the Solid specification?. On the W3C Solid Community Group call on the 1st August there was a conversation about which repository of Solid GitHub to identify as the normative specification where proposals in the form of pull requests should be submitted to? and what should be done with repositories that could be considered confusing to avoid confusion? In response an issue has been opened where you can submit proposals on how to resolve it and vote by putting a thumbs up or thumbs down on proposals you support or don’t support.||Explaining the Vision Panel|
