Subject: Inter-SCA TC Liaison Committee Charter - FINAL

Dear SCA Technical Committees

The OpenCSA Steering Committee (SC) has approved the charter of an Inter-SCA TC Liaison Committee (LC) as the official forum for discussion of common issues that cross SCA TC boundaries. The full text of the charter is below. On behalf of the Steering Committee, can I request that each SCA TC nominates at least one representative to serve on the LC by next Friday, October 26th. The SC will also appoint a representative by that date and he will convene the inaugural meeting as soon as practical. Please send your nominated name(s) to the <opencsa-ms> mailing list.

[opencsa-ms] Inter-SCA TC Liaison Committee Charter - FINAL

OpenCSA Inter-SCA TC Liaison Committee (LC) 2007-19-2007

The OpenCSA Inter-SCA TC Liaison Committee is chartered to provide an  
official forum for the discussion by the TCs of common issues that  
cross SCA TC boundaries. Its membership shall consist of  
representatives from each SCA TC (at least one from each TC), OpenCSA  
Steering Committee members, and possibly other invited TC members.  
The OpenCSA SC shall appoint the members for one-year renewable  
terms. Each SCA TC shall recommend to the SC at least one member to  
represent itself on the LC.

The actual composition and number is flexible in order to accommodate  
changing needs and requirements. However each SCA TC should have at  
least one TC member to represent its interests and to assure reliable  
communications. It is also contemplated that the SC should also have  
at least one of its members serving to ensure a reliable  
communication channel between the SC and the Committee.

All of the Committee's work shall be visible to the public (i.e. all  
documents, email archives, agenda, discussions, shall be publicly  
viewable). The Committee, as its first order of business shall elect  
a Chair. In the absence of such an elected Chair the SC member shall  
serve as a pro tem chair until such time as the Committee can elect  
one. LC meetings, (teleconference and/or face to face) shall be  
posted in advance. The meetings shall be open to other MS and TC  
members as observers. Observers may participate in meetings at the  
discretion of the chair. Any eligible OASIS member may subscribe to  
the LC mail list and post to it. The LC may use whatever tools seem  
appropriate to organizing its work, provided they meet the above  
criteria of public visibility and are approved by OASIS.

The purpose of the LC is to provide a forum for the discussion of  
common issues that cut across the SCA TCs. The LC is not a decision  
making body in the sense that is only empowered to make  
recommendations to the appropriate TCs or SC. All of its  
recommendations are non-binding and advisory. The LC must not  
disenfranchise the role and responsibilities of the TCs in technical  

The LC will not discuss issues which are the sole purview of any  
single TC. The LC will only work on issues passed to it by requests  
made to it by the SC or other TCs with the view towards making timely  
recommendations. The LC may re-discuss an issue should a  
recommendation be rejected by one or more TCs.

The kinds of activities within its scope are:
   the discussion of common process issues,
   the tracking (not resolution of) of cross TC technical issues to  
make sure the designated TC liaisons are aware of them and that the  
relevant TCs take appropriate action,
   the making recommendations to the SC of other actions it might  
take to improve coordination of the work of the OpenCSA TCs.

    Contemplated areas where liaison will almost certainly be  
required are exemplified by start-up issues (naming, versioning,  
logistics), test suite issues that cross TCs, logistics (e.g.  
scheduling face-to-face meetings), and close-down issues (scheduling,  
exit criteria, etc.)
