Dear all,
as it turns out, the shift for some of us from summer-to-winter time, the
closeness to P14 plus some confusion arising from the fact that this Friday
is the 1st of November, led to a sub-optimal participation to the call.
For this reason, we’ll be holding again this call next *Thursday, November
7th at 07:00 PM UTC*. *Given the recent shift from summer time, please
use this link to check for your local time
Tha agenda will be the same, i.e. the discussion of the *DDPIG session at

week (the Data Granularity TF was discussed quite a bit there), as well as
the *Data Granularity Guidance document*

that Anna,
Rob, Ilya and Stephen have started drafting.
The P14 session minutes are here
and the slides here

The following are the three documents that we’ve been using for capturing
the information on the TF and our calls so far:
– *Data/Metadata Granularity Task Force Minutes* (
– *Data Granularity Guidance* draft document (
– *Dimension of data/metadata granularity* (
The connection details for our call are the following:
