    Recommendation (Eliot, Michael)

    Don D.: Move to vote on proposal for next with proposed change (process

ITEM 3: Follow up on SIDSC request for specialization review  
    Eliot providing guidance
    Discussion about SC Membership rules
    - Joining an SC
        - Must be a member of the TC        
        - on Subcommitte page - choose between member and observer
        - No quorum rules
        - Observers cannot communicate via standard OASIS channels    
        - We do encourage Vendors to review both work-in-progress on a periodic
          basis as well as final deliverables 
ITEM 4: Ongoing: Review of "Items for discussion" list in the Frontpage
        - How much flexibility for specializers? (Special question: Still important?) 
            - http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/200801/msg00016.html (see full thread)
            - conformance vs. flexibility
                - look at things on a case-by-case basis
                - clarify language in the specification
                - important to have formal conformance clause
                - Eliot: volunteer to contribute a section on conformance
                - Don: Keep this discussion open
                - TC will need to approve any editor drafts
                Further discussion:
                    - complexity (Alan)
                    - Approach outlined in 1.2 TOC the right approach?
ITEM 5: Discuss the 2-implementations rule for specializations under revised Spec organization
    - Spec organized differently
    - Multiple modules
    - We need 2 separate implementations for each module/package
        - This is much stricter than OASIS requires
        - Specialization will likely have special/custom processors
        - OASIS emphasizes 2 user implementations rather than processors
    - How do prove interoperability?
    - Goal of specialization
        - to support a specific user community
    - 2 different axes of use
        - user implementation (validation of markup)
        - processing implementation (validation of processing)
    Recommendation: Keep this on the list
- Acronym/Glossary SC 
- DITA Adoption Subcommittee  
    - Carol Geyer
    - Vendor representatives    
    - Read the ODF Charter
