Proposals from the end of the Chairs' Collaboration meeting

19 Jun 2017

Those of you who were at the Gothenburg meeting saw two summary/action presentations at the end, prior to the W3C discussion in the afternoon. The first was from Peter Wittenburg and the second from Bob Hanisch, representing himself and his co-conspirators Rebecca Koskela and Keith Jeffery. Bob & Co. elaborated each of their seven points in a Word doc and that doc plus Peter's slide set are attached.

The point of this message is to gather comments from those who were at the meeting, and others on this list who would like to comment, before advancing the various thoughts and proposals to all of the Chairs and to TAB, which were the next proposed steps.

A summary of the meeting and the presentations will be made available at the meeting specific page in a few days.

Thanks again to those who attended and participated in another productive Chairs' Collaboration meeting.

Larry

    Dear Larry,
    Thanks for sharing the proposals.
    I have couple of comments about the "RDA Future" document:
    1. Point 1: I understand and support the idea of having document/ouput "types", denoting the stage of maturity and level of endorsement. However, I'm not sure about the use of "Recommendation", which, in W3C parlance, denotes a "standard". Unless RDA is not going to develop standards, the use of this terminology may be misleading.
    2. Point 3: It's unclear to me if the proposal is to make nominal the current 12-18 WG lifetime. If this is the case, I would not be in favour of this change: I think the current 12-18-month policy (subject to extension) has been very effective in delivering tangible results. If the task is too big to be completed within this timeframe, it should rather re-thought - e.g., by splitting it in a number of steps, to be addressed by different working groups - or the same working group, re-chartered.
    Cheers,
    Andrea
