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?

<JD> yes - xml (from which we can get an html, and later process some of
its content)

- 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?)

<JD> Oh yes! The next step could be to get a summer intern make a Web
interface to assist in entering all data needed to generate an RDDL.

- Would you like us to review your specifications prior to TC ballots so
you don't need to go back and fix stuff afterwards?

<JD> Would be great at least for CS and above.

- Would you like us to call in to TC meetings periodically just to hear
our voices and answer any questions you might have?

<JD> Yes but on invitation from chair (so can be scheduled, and members
be prepared)

- Would you like more training materials? If yes, is there a particular
topic you'd like to see covered?

<JD> Not really. Or, all additional assistance should be built-in tools
and portals.

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.

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.
