The international RDML consortium was founded to develop and maintain the RDML data exchange format. The core team is currently formed by Andreas Untergasser, Steve Lefever, Jan Hellemans, Jan M Ruijter and Jo Vandesompele. All interested parties are welcome to join here.

The RDML consortium is organized in a key developer group, a member community and supporters. The task of the key developer group is to discuss the comments and requests with the members and unite them into new RDML Recommendations.

Therefore, a new RDML Recommendation progresses through four maturity levels :

1. Working Draft (WD)
2. Candidate Recommendation (CR)
3. Proposed Recommendation (PR)
4. RDML Recommendation (REC)
