Beta OpenActive Namespace Vocabulary Terms

This is the beta namespace for the OpenActive Vocabulary, as defined in the Modelling Opportunity Data Specification.

This namespace can be used by publishers experimenting with new properties that are likely to be added to the core specification.

It is defined as a convenience to help document properties that are in active testing and review by the community. Publishers should not assume that properties in the beta namespace will either be added to the core specification or be included in the namespace over the long term.

This namespace MUST be referenced using the URL "https://openactive.io/ns-beta" (which will return the JSON-LD definition if the Accept header contains application/ld+json), and is designed to be used in conjunction with the "https://openactive.io/" namespace.

Note that properties listed here must have associated proposals in one of the specification repositories. To suggest a new property, please file a proposal here.
