Subject: RE: [chairs] What can Standards Development / TC Administration do to help?
Hi Mary Thanks for the offer. Please see my answers in-line below. John -----Original Message----- From: Mary McRae [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: 21 April 2010 20:27 To: email@example.com Subject: [chairs] What can Standards Development / TC Administration do to help? Hi everyone, If you've submitted a specification for public review or CS ballot recently, you've probably met Kim. I'm thrilled to have her on board and hopefully we're now in good shape to get your documents turned around quickly once again. That said, I have at least a dozen ideas of services we can once again offer, or new services, to make your lives a bit easier, but I thought I would ask you for your ideas rather than deciding for you. There are some caveats of course: a. Neither Kim nor I have the power or the skillset to change anything about the way Kavi works. b. We're not talking about changes to the TC Process. So, for instance: - Would you find a template for recording meeting minutes helpful? If yes, in what flavors? John - yes please. .doc and/or .odt would suffice. - Would you like us to take over creation of spec covers? (as in you'll use a temporary cover which would become part of the template, you would provide us with whatever information necessary, and we would create the cover pages with all the appropriate links and make sure they work before uploading to docs.oasis-open.org?) John - yes please. - Would you like us to review your specifications prior to TC ballots so you don't need to go back and fix stuff afterwards? John - yes please. - Would you like us to call in to TC meetings periodically just to hear our voices and answer any questions you might have? John - yes please. - Would you like more training materials? If yes, is there a particular topic you'd like to see covered? John - not necessary. Remember these are just some of *my* ideas; I want to hear *your* ideas. I need to know what your TOP request is; you can have more than one, but please list in order of priority. While you're free to discuss on this list, please send your actual list to me so I can track them. John - my TOP request would be to have access to some sort of Standards Observatory so that we can track what's going on outside of OASIS that may be relevant to our work. I realize this may be asking for something beyond your remit but it would certainly help many aspects of the work we are doing in the eGov MS. Thanks!
