Subject: JIRA permissions/Editors SC

Dear TC members,

you may have noticed already that JIRA permits you to submit new issues 
and to comment on them, but doesn't permit you any other operations, 
like advancing the status of an issue, settings its resolution or 
closing it. The only TC members that are currently allowed to do that 
are the TC chairs and the TC editor.

It is obvious that at least the chairs of the formula SC and the 
ODF-Next SC require more permissions to be able to process the issues 
relevant to their SC. But it may also be reasonable that TC members who 
are working on the resolution of larger sets of JIRA issues get some 
more JIRA permissions. For a limited number of issues Rob, Patrick and 
myself are glad to maintain the issues based on comments that you add. 
But if you intent to provide resolutions for a larger set of issues, it 
may be advantageous if you could manage the relevant issues yourself.

The way to achieve this is to found an Editors sub committee. This would 
be a very lightweight sub committee actually. Its only purpose is to 
define the group of TC members who have the permission in JIRA to manage 
issues. We wouldn't use any other functionality of the SC than its 
roster, that Mary then would use to maintain JIRA permissions.

It seems that we won't have a call on the 15th, and Mary further will 
not be available for processing TC requests from the 9th to the 24th. 
For that reason, I would like to propose that we have a resolution on 
Monday to found that SC, even though I know that this is on short 
notice. I would further like to ask you to let us know if you think that 
you will be able to work on the resolution of a larger set of JIRA 
issues during the next months or so, so that we can add you to the 
initial group of SC members.

The OASIS TC process requires us to define a name, purpose, deliverables 
and chairs, even though this would not really be required in our case. 
That's my suggestion

SC Name: OpenDocument Editors
Statement of purpose: Maintenance of the TC's JIRA issues.
Deliverables: none
Chairs: Rob Weir, Michael Brauer (that means just the ODF TC's chairs)

Thank you
