working groups

Mic Bowman

per the brief discussion in the TSC this morning, the core proposal from the WG task force is that we replace working groups with technology focused SIGs (where discussions happen) and task forces focused on a short term deliverable (where the deliverable must be completed in less than 6 months, for example). 

the list of proposals is here:

please comment (and, while we have withdrawn proposals 1 and 2, please read the discussion on them for context). 

specifically... here's where we're at:

  • Proposal 3: Working groups should be dropped.
  • Proposal 4: Formalize "task force" as a task-specific group with limited scope and fixed time to complete.
  • Proposal 5: A task-force will be required to create a "proposal" and the TSC must approve the proposal.
  • Proposal 6: The task-force leader will be required to report on completion of deliverables.
  • Proposal 7: A task-force that requires additional time, must request an extension from the TSC.
  • Proposal 8: Existing working groups will be converted into a technology focused SIG.
