Subject: RE: [regrep] minutes of last meeting

More clarification on the comment resolution process:

The OASIS Process does not require us to produce a formal document on 
comment resolution as a result of the Review Period.  (However the Process 
does require formal comment resolution on any comments accompanying a NO 
vote in an OASIS ballot.)
Our TC should have a formal mechanism to resolve the comments that are made 
during the current OASIS Review Period of our V2 specifications under the 
OASIS Process.   A subteam will be used to identify, uniquely number and 
discuss the proposed resolution to  comments made during the Review 
Period.  (Any TC member can be a member of this subteam.)  The proposed 
resolution will then be discussed by the TC at the next conference call of 
the TC ('next' relative to the completion of the proposed resolution).  If 
the TC agrees with the proposed resolution, then the subteam will indicate 
that the comment/resolution has been finalized.  Otherwise the TC will 
further discuss the resolution either in the conference call or on the 
mailing list.  The purpose of the subteam is to provide a starting point 
for the resolution of the comment and manage the process.  The subteam's 
work does not preclude discussion regarding a specific comment on the Big 
Registry list from occurring.  The creation of the subteam is in 
recognition that we should have a formal process to handle  comments that 
are made as a result of the OASIS Process.

My own opinion:  Joel has indicated that his comments referenced at the URL 
below are to be considered formal comments made during the current Review 
Period under the OASIS Process.    We should accept them as formal 
comments, uniquely number each one and use the process above for 
resolution.  However I disagree with Joel that we as a TC should go back 
and review all the comments made during the TC V2 vote and consider them 
formal comments.  Those comments were not made during the formal Review 
Period.  I would encourage anyone who made comments during the TC V2 vote 
and who wishes them to be made formal comments under the current Review 
Period, to follow Joel's lead and send email to the list indicating that 
his/her comments (with a referenced URL) be taken as formal comments.

Obviously our TC should always be in a mode where we are looking at 
comments made at any time and considering them.  However for purpose of the 
OASIS Process, we should distinguish between those comments that are made 
during the Review Period under the OASIS Process and those that are not.

Perhaps we can discuss this more on Thursday...
