This is the jqlang organization.


  • Stephen Dolan has been too busy to look after jq.
  • The remaining maintainers, Nicolas Williams and William Langford have been too busy as well, and William has indicated that he will no longer act as a maintainer. We have recruited new maintainers.
  • Maintainers need sufficient access to be able to set up GitHub Actions, other CIs, etc., and to add maintainers/committers.

  • A specification for the jq language arguably belongs in a separate repository.
    • tentatively jqlang/spec, although this does not exist as of 2023-June-4.
