Subject: [sca-policy] 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 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.)
