    Christoph kindly proposed a revised charter… which was the topic of discussion.
    That resulted in a plan for the structure of the charter:
    Gail kindly agreed to lead the writing between now and the next call:
    – she will write a new charter based on today’s discussions and the suggested structure;
    – she will submit a paper proposal to the Drexel-CODATA FAIR-RRDM Workshop 2019 on ‘Beyond CC’ as discussed at the Montreal workshop;
    – she will submit a proposal for a workshop topic to the Drexel-CODATA FAIR-RRDM Workshop 2019 on on responsibility of data users in reassuring data providers of the fairness of FAIRness…
    While we’re doing this please consider submitting a proposal at; registering at; and of course the RDA Plenary
