Subject: [data-versioning] New Data Versioning IG Charter Draft
Dear Members of the Data Versioning WG/IG
After the Data Versioning WG has come to a close. At the last meeting at RDA VP16 Costa Rica, we decided to continue as a new Data Versioning IG. The current procedures at RDA require us to submit a new charter for the Data Versioning IG for approval by the TAB.
As co-chairs of the Data Versioning WG/IG, we have drafted a charter for the new Data Versioning IG. You can access the document at…. Since we want to discuss the new charter with you at the upcoming VP17 Edinburgh working meeting, we ask you to please review the document and add your comments to it.
We are looking forward to seeing you online at RDA VP17.
