Subject: Proposed revision to tcproc text
/ Eduardo Gutentag <Eduardo.Gutentag@Sun.COM> was heard to say: | Now, if someone could come up with a suggested new version of the paragraph | that reflects all this.... I'll take a stab: TC Visibility All resources of the TC and its associated subcommittees, including web pages, documents, email lists and any other discussions, must be available on facilities provided by OASIS; TCs and SCs may not conduct TC business, store documents, or host web pages exclusively on non-OASIS servers. All web pages, documents, and email archives of all TCs and SCs shall be publicly visible. Mail Lists Each TC shall be provided upon formation with a general discussion email list and a means to collect public comments. Subscription to the general email list shall be required for Members, Voting Members, and Observers of the TC. The minutes of each TC meeting and a record of all decisions shall be published to that TC's email list. All email discussion of TC business must take place on the email list. All TC email lists shall be archived for the duration of the corporation, and all TC email archives shall be publicly visible. The purpose of the TC's public comment facility is to receive comments from the public and is not for public discussion. Comments will be publicly archived, and will be forwarded to one or more TC members including the TC Chair. TCs shall not be required to respond to comments. Comments from the public, and from TC members, provide an important measure of the success, both technical and political, of the TC and its work products. It is vital that comments and the TC response to those comments, if any, be transparent to both the public and the TC members. To achieve this transparency, comments must only be sent through recognized, publically visible channels. Comments to the TC made by TC members must be submitted via the TC email list, and comments made by non-TC members, including from the public, must be made via the TC's comment form. Communication through other channels, if there are any, cannot be considered a comment on the TC or its work products. Web Pages The OASIS TC Administrator shall provide the TC with a publicly accessible web page. The TC must keep the following information current on the TC web page: the TC name and charter; standing rules and other adopted procedures; meeting schedule; anticipated deliverables and delivery dates; list of TC members; the name and email address of the TC Chair or co-Chairs as well as other positions such as secretary, editor, etc. that may exist; list of subcommittees, their deliverables, and members; links to draft and completed TC documents with identification of the latest versions of the TC's specifications; and IPR declarations.
