Fw: SI committee meeting


Chris,


It occurred to me that you hadn't see the agenda for the in-person meeting and that we ought to set appropriate expectations for everyone.


As you know, the SDD TC has been working on deliverables, the major one being the specificaition, for quite some time and I think we've made good progress. The meeting in New York is intended to accelerate that progress by providing several focused days to drill down on many of the technical issues. We will be going over all of the specification issues, examples, proposals and discussion items. Our plan is to pretty much completely flesh out what we are calling "conformance level 1" (the "basic" level of specification). In other words, this is very much a "detail" meeting as opposed to a "concept" meeting.


Hence, you might want to familiarize yourselves with the specification, past meeting minutes, and other documents on the SDD TC Web site.


I know that sending 4 people to this meeting is a significant investment for SAP, and so I just wanted to make sure you had a sense for the meeting agenda. We will be discussing the detailed meeting agenda during next Wednesday's conference call.


If you have any questions, please let me know. If you think it would be beneficial to have a telephone conversation, also let me know; I'd be happy to do that.


Thanks.


Regards,
Brent

Chris,


That's great!


The meeting will be held at the IBM facility at 33 Maiden Lane in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City, NY USA. Meeting times are 1:00 - 5:00 Monday Oct. 9; 9:00 - 5:00 Tuesday Oct. 10 - Thursday Oct. 12; and 9:00 - noon Friday, Oct. 13. We will be meeting in room 02-2002 each day.


There are several hotels within walking distance (hotels in Manhattan tend to be a bit more expensive than elsewhere, but you can save some money by not needing to rent a car). My best suggestion is to use mapquest.com or mapsonus.com to locate nearby hotels that SAP might have agreements with.


Please ensure that all of the SAP participants are registered on the SDD TC roster with their appropriate status; please let me know if I can assist in doing that.


We hope that you can join our TC conference call next Wednesday, 10:00 a.m. US eastern time (details on the SDD TC calendar on the Web page).


We look forward to your participation and to meeting all of you.


Thanks.


Regards,
Brent

Re: Fw: SI committee meeting



Chris,


This is wonderful news! We welcome SAP's participation in the SDD TC.


First, let me introduce myself. I am the current chair of the SDD TC, replacing Tom Studwell, who retired from IBM.


Logistically, you should determine who will participate in the TC and at what level. As noted in this e-mail correspondence, there are "Observer" and "Member" levels (along with a few others that aren't really relevant here). To be a "Voting Member", one must first be a "Member" and then attend at least two consecutive meetings of the TC (which includes our weekly conference calls). Once one becomes a "Voting Member", one remains a "Voting Member" unless one misses two consecutive meetings of the TC (in which case voting rights are restored after attending two consecutive meetings). By convention, the TC has agreed that no single company will have more than 4 voting members.


Although it might be a short runway, your timing is excellent: we have a planned in-person meeting in New York City October 9-13, and there are two scheduled TC  calls before that meeting (tomorrow, September 27 and next Wednesday, October 4, both at 10:00 a.m. US Eastern time -- details are on the SDD TC Web page in "Calendar"). Members would be welcome to attend the face-to-face meeting, and if it is possible and you so choose, you could obtain voting rights before that meeting by attending the next two conference calls. I realize that's not a lot of notice, but it is possible. You still could attend the in-person meeting, of course, even if you haven't yet established voting member privilieges.


So, the next steps are to enroll the SAP participants in the TC (I see that you already are a member...I also can change Mr. Heine's and Mr. Kilian's status from "Observer" to "Member" if they will send me an e-mail requesting it. You also can enroll others as Observers or Members (again, with the caveat that the TC has agreed to a maximum of 4 voting members per company). Then, if possible, have one or more SAP representatives attend tomorrow's and/or next Wednesday's conference call. Finally, attend the in-person meeting Oct. 9 - 13 if you like.


I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you encouter any problems or issues with the TC logistics or Web page.


Thanks, and we look forward to SAP's participation in the SDD TC.


Regards,
Brent

RE: Fw: SI committee meeting

Chris,
this technical committee does not do any Open Source so Open Source should not be an issue. As long as your contribution is limited to comments on the proposed specification then the only IP (Intellectual Property) you would be contributing would be your expertise in installation requirements of your company.

Perhaps their concern is "Open Standards" but SAP is a founding member of OASIS so that should not be a concern.

To answer your question, there is no 'informal' way to participate other than as 'Observer' in which you are only able to listen, you can not contribute. The TC probably would not adjust their call-in hours to accommodate 'Observers'.

Sounds great....

There has been a hitch on our side... It turns out all open source committee participation needs to be board approved, god only knows why, we are taking this to the board in July.

Is there anyway for us to informally participate until then?

Did any of our issues get raised at the committee meeting?

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,
I wanted to let you know that the SDD TC is voting to change their teleconference time. While the ballot doesn't close until tomorrow afternoon, the current selection calls for teleconferences at
Wednesday, 10AM ET, 11PM JT, 7AM PT, 3PM UK (4PM SAP time ;-) Hopefully this helps you participate on the calls.

Please let me know your membership plans.

I have signed up as a contributor and I will have the others change their status. The problem is that the approval process takes a long time here. We are in the final phase where our IP lawyers need to give their final approval.

Re: Fw: SI committee meeting

Chris,
so far only two people from SAP have signed up for the SDD TC, Frank Heine and Frank Kilian. In both cases they signed up as "Observer", which means that they can listen to the meetings and will receive mail from the reflector but they can not contribute to the TC. You must be a full Member to be able to contribute to the meeting.

If they remain an "Observer" there isn't much point to attending the face to face meeting since they will not be able to contribute.

If they change to member status before the SDD Face to Face meeting then the face to face meeting will be valuable experience but it is very short notice for anyone to attend and it may be hard to justify at this late date.

It may be that the best value would come if the SAP members to reply via email in support of Randy George's recent submission to the TC (I will forward that email to you separately). SAP will have a lot of influence with the committee and your support would be very powerful and help speed up agreement within the TC. I can work with you on the mechanics of such a response.

The first step, however, will be to get your current participants to be members. I can change their roles to "Member" if they each send an email to sdd-chair@lists.oasis-open.org requesting that I change their role to Member.

SI committee meeting

 






Charlie - Unfortunately we have some scheduling conflict during the time the face to face meeting is taking place. This is the week that a Macrovision consultant is coming to SAP for IA training and to help convert our current ISMP install to IA. This is a very important project for SAP and I can not miss it. I think we have two options.

1) We can meet with you and key members afterwards, perhaps in June.

2) I could try to get one of the members Frank Heine to attend, however I would only entertain this option if you think it is critical that we attend in person.

Please let me know your thoughts,

Thanks.


Chris
