Subject: Future Schedule/Roadmap


I can post this to the general list at some point but thought since the 
Examples SC is going to be proposing a way to move forward that it might 
be appropriate to start the discussion here.

I realize that the original time schedule slipped for a number of 
reasons that are probably not productive to discuss. The question is how 
to move forward from this point.

What do the members of this SC think about not proposing an overall 
calendar but allow individual tasks or goals to be calendared, while 
having a roadmap that outlines the various steps and dependencies for 
the process? What I am thinking of is the need to assure members that 
all examples will be worked prior to a vote on any committee proposal 
for example.

Does that make any sense? What I am afraid of is that insistence on a 
calendar by any perceived (whether real or not) group in the TC will 
lead to the sort of disputes that have distracted us from meaningful 
work in the past. I realize that is at variance with software project 
practices but I am not personally sure those translate very well into 
the development of standards.

Thoughts? Comments?
