RDA area clustering : TAB seeks feedback over next 2 weeks

  • Creator
  • #126950

    Dear DFT and DF colleagues,
    We just received this proposal for WG/IG clustering from the Secretariat. It has been worked out by TAB and should now be discussed within the WG/IGs.
    Take care: this clustering is not meant to force WGs/IGs to work together etc.
    Please read and give comments within the next 2 weeks via the online wiki.

    Subject: [rda-wg-ig-chairs] RDA area clustering : TAB seeks feedback over next 2 weeks
    Dear Chairs,
    After considerable effort, community input, and deliberation, TAB has endorsed an area cluster model that we think will bring clarity to the RDA activity particularly for the external community. TAB now seeks feedback from RDA WG and IG Chairs on two pieces of the area cluster model described in the attached document. The two pieces of feedback are:
    1. After reading over the area cluster model in the attached document, look over where your WG or IG is located in the quadrant clustering of Figure 2 (for WGs) and Table 1 (for WGs and IGs). The categorization was done by your TAB liason(s) to the best of their knowledge, but you as chair are the ultimate expert. Send your feedback by email to contacts below.
    2. Read Section IV on tagging. Select a set of tags 3-5 that best describe your WG or IG activity. Tags are drawn from the table, or can be of your suggestion.
    Please send your feedback to Beth Plale (***@***.***) and Francoise Genova (***@***.***) who are TAB’s designated points of contact for feedback and who will aggregate results, analyze, and incorporate.
    TAB is eager to hear from you. Please respond by 27 February 2015, so we can reflect your feedback before P5.
