Subject: Today's PKI TC Survey SC Concall and Date for Next One
I added minutes for today's concall to our web site. That's what the cryptic email you just received is telling you. I have included a copy of the minutes below. Comments are welcome. Note that Peter and I set a date for our next concall: Thursday, June 19, 2003, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern U.S. Time. The survey should be done and we'll need a lot of time to discuss the results. I'll be able to do real-time analysis of the results using the SurveySolutions XP software! And we'll get started on our report on conclusions from the survey. Please let me know ASAP if you can't make our next meeting. It will surely be the most exciting one yet! Thanks, Steve ----------- PKI TC Survey Subcommittee Conference Call Thursday, May 22, 2003, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern U.S. Time Unapproved Meeting Minutes Members Present: Steve Hanna (Chair), Peter Doyle Members Absent: Paul Evans, Terry Leahy Minutes taken by: Steve Hanna Steve Hanna called the meeting to order at 12:05 PM. We did not have a quorum, since only 2 of the 4 members were present. Agenda Review ------------- We agreed to remove the item "Review test survey" from the agenda since that was covered during yesterday's PKI TC concall. We added an item to discuss Survey Analysis. Approval of Minutes of May 7, 2003 ------------------------------------- No quorum present, but no objections. Discuss How Survey is Being Hosted ---------------------------------- Steve gave a brief description of how the survey is being hosted. We're using the SurveySolutions XP software from Perseus Development Corp. Currently, we have an evaluation license but we will soon be purchasing a copy of the Standard edition. The software has a client component (for creating and analyzing surveys) and a server component (for running the surveys). The client component is running on Steve's Windows PC. The server component is running on the OASIS web servers. The server component can log results to the server hard drive or email them to Steve. We're planning to do both for backup. Discuss Survey Analysis ----------------------- We agreed that during the survey Steve will send periodic updates to the Survey SC with information about how many surveys have been received, raw totals for each answer, etc. Once the survey is complete, Steve will prepare an initial analysis and send that to the Survey SC. Then we should have an in-depth discussion of the data where Steve can use the analysis tools built into SurveySolutions XP to consider the data from many angles, looking for interesting correlations. Finally, we'll prepare a report on the survey results and release that to the PKI TC and the world, sending a copy to the survey respondents who gave us their email address. We agreed that the privacy of respondents' data must be preserved. We have promised that only PKI TC members will see individual responses. We want to go beyond that to ensure that the email addresses collected are only used for follow-up surveys and sending survey results. So we agreed that those addresses will only be seen by Steve and by OASIS staff (for backup purposes). Check Status on Publicity Plan ------------------------------ We reviewed the status of the publicity plan. So far, about half of the contacts have agreed to forward the survey invitation. The other half haven't decided yet. Nobody has said "No" yet. Invitation ---------- We agreed that we should start drafting the survey invitation. Steve will prepare a draft and then circulate it to the Survey SC for review. After that, we'll circulate it to the PKI TC for review. Once the survey is live (scheduled for May 28), we'll send the invitation out to the folks who have agreed to forward it. Next Meeting ------------ We agreed that our next meeting should be a two hour concall after the survey results are in. We will focus on analyzing the results. We chose Thursday, June 19, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern U.S. Time. Same callin number. Steve will confirm this with the other PKI Survey SC members. Adjourn ------- The meeting was adjourned at 12:28 PM.
