Hi Bret, hi everybody -
Thanks for all this work so far. I am catching up on all the threads around Subcommittees & other topics. I'll be sending more info in a bit.
For the moment, here is a template that you all can use to put together motions to start Subcommittees:
And here is a real-life example from the Legal Citation Markup TC:
Name: Subcommittee on Legislation, constitutions, treaties and Parliamentary documents
Purpose: The LegalCite Legislation subcommittee shall identify the relevant features of Legislation, constitutions, treaties and Parliamentary documents needed for their identification and description in the context of legal citations. Scope of the documents to include to be determined by the SC. Emphasis is given on international reach, support for multiple languages, multiple jurisdictions and multiple uses. Of great importance are primary source legal materials which are most binding in nature, and which are most cited in other documents. Features are organized in identifying vs. accessory, required vs. desired, and describing the cited document vs. describing the citation(*).
Deliverables: 1) A collection of document types and a collection of use cases outlining the types of materials and citation types that exist for these materials. These use cases should include examples from different user communities (i.e. lawyers, bureaucrats, academics, business people, general public) as well as consider different languages, and jurisdictions.
Chair: Monica Palmirani
The way to proceed is to flesh these out then start a ballot for each in the TC's balloting section. I can help with Rich set them up. (I am following up to find out whether the ability to start ballots is limited to chair and secretary or whether anyone can use the balloting facility. I'm not sure what its capabilities are...)
SC Name: TAXII
Chairs: Bret Jordan, Marc Davidson
Purpose: <couple of sentences on what it will do>
Proposed Deliverables: <these of course can change once the SC is working and better understands what is needed. this is a preliminary, proposed list>
We can then launch electronic ballots to approve these and then I can get them set up in the system.
