Yes, this is correct. The TC may vote to allow the conducting of
business via email. (But until this is approved you'll have to do it via
voice; in other words, you can't decide via email to conduct business
via email :-)

I believe Karl stated yesterday that business can be conducted through
email discussion list.
(Karl:  If you once again confirm this, that would be great.)

(BTW, I never understood the formal procedure of nominating 'others' for
roles though...I was once nominated to be Class Prince for Homecoming
during my freshman year of High School.  I was almost voted in,
_without_ my acknowledgement, permission or even consent ;-)!

For what its worth, I second the nomination of both Len and Sean, and
vote Aye on their inclusion.

 (I suspect that e-mail based assent is not quite kosher according to
Roberts' Rules of Order, but as even the telegraph had not yet been
invented when that particular standard was promulgated, it might be
worth bringing up the question about whether e-mail can be used to
formally make votes, at least in proxy).

Now that the Private Discussion List is open for business, this is the
arena to discuss all matters relating to management of responsibilities
for the committeee.

In keeping in line with OASIS principles, we will make sure as much
communications as possible takes place over an open forum such as this
(i.e. not through private email, wherever possible)

Rex will be maintaining the lists of the members and responsibilities.
I will start off with the descriptions below:


Ranjeeth, Chair
Rex, Secretary/Webmaster
Joe, non-technical Editor
Kurt, technical Editor

(additional breakdown will be done as size of TC changes)

Rob Nixon has asked to be chair of VR subcommittee and Sudhakar Gorti,
chair of physical description subcommittee, in the future.
Discussion regarding these should take place on this Private Discussion
List till the next meeting.

Additionally I nominate Sean B. Palmer to be in charge of the HumanML
RDF Specification and Len Bullard to be responsible for the HumanML --
XML Schema specification.  Since Len is not a member, I offer to
represent his interests during the meeting.

Additional roles will be assigned based on interests of the contributors
to this group.  By next meeting, every member of the TC has to have a
formal role assigned (to ensure accountability), and all non-member
contributors will be requested to handle a particular role.

Liaisons can start to be discussed, formally or informally, by then.


There are three important points regarding all roles, current and
   1) These are all active roles, and each participant is responsible
for upkeep of tasks
   2) All posts are mandatorily reviewed either on a daily or regular
   3) All duties are fully understood
       These roles are customized somewhat for HumanMarkup TC, so please
personally list out the specific duties we are responsible for.

All individuals in roles must ensure that these roles are met.  If there
is an inability to meet these requirements, please contact me directly,
and we can adjust duties.  Thanks.


To ensure continuity of progress, we have to ensure contingency
regarding our work progress.  If any of us is not able to meet our
responsibility by stated deadline, then another is responsible.  This
ensures that our progress continues.

According to OASIS, responsibility for all work ultimately lies with the
chair of the group.  If the chair is unable to perform his duties, then
work will transfer to secretary, TC webmaster, and editors.

If there is long term inability for anyone to meet the requirements for
the roles, then the TC will vote to find a replacement.

Non-Tech Editor-->Tech Editor-->Chair
Tech Editor-->Non-Tech Editor-->Chair

Chair-->Secretary--->Webmaster--->Tech Editor-->Non-Tech Editor

(future roles will have a contingency hierarchy established as well)
