UBL 2.2
 - the initial suggestion period for UBL 2.2 is now closed
   - the TC is now expecting each of the Transportation, Pre-award and
     Post-award subcommittees to make the recommendations for 2.2 additions
     to be agreed upon by the TC; this is done by way of a JIRA ticket
 - someone is needed to manage requirements for transportation documents
 - Kees managing requirements for post-award documents
 - Ole managing requirements for pre-award documents
 - Roberto managing requirements for party information documents

 - the current UBL 2.2 csd01wd10 spreadsheet is found here:
   - the csd01wd09 working draft release of UBL 2.2 artefacts is found at:

 - documentation requirements
   - a Google text document of the csd01wd10 hub document is here:
    - committee members have been given permissions to edit the document
     - Ken will try to move the content into XML when the edits are complete
     - removing hanging paragraphs by adding introductory sections
     - disambiguating section titles
   - each submitter of new documents and objects must consider what additional
     documentation is needed in the UBL hub document:
     - general business rules - sections 2.2.x
     - business objects - sections 2.x
   - section 2.20 party roles is now managed separately using the XML document
     "UBL-2.2-Party-summary-information.xml" in this directory:
   - section 3.2.x is now managed separately using the XML document
     "UBL-2.2-Schema-summary-information.xml" in this directory:
     - edit the XML directly, or copy and paste into your favourite editor
     - please do the process quickly to avoid conflict edits with others
     - there is no need to maintain alphabetization ... just group new
       documents at the end by subcommittee
     - please inform Ken when the changes are made
 - please note these documentation issues are on the critical path to the
   release of our first public review
 - can anyone help with drawing the diagrams needed for pre-award?

 - please review all JIRA tickets and comment and/or act where necessary:
   - all of the issues are to be closed by September 1, 2016 in order to
     create the first committee specification draft and public review draft
     - we aren't going to make this because of vacation schedules
   - please remember to document your actions on the ticket and then assign
     the ticket to the next person (usually Ken) to deal with the ticket, as
     others won't know what is being done, leaving the ticket status as "OPEN"
     (Ken will change it from OPEN to RESOLVED when the changes have been
      incorporated into internal draft or external released deliverables)
   - when asking a question in the spreadsheet, or challenging a value such
     as a definition, please include a question mark (?) and that can be used
     to search for outstanding issues ... better still would be to simply
     create a JIRA ticket for the issue and leave the definitions untouched
     until they are addressed

UBL-52  Example XML instances must be created by all members
- reminder for all members to work on this
- Ken to look for first pre-award example in previous distribution

UBL-51  Party role documentation must be completed by all members
- reminder for all members to work on this

UBL-50  Can we use the DigitalCapability document as TPA ?
- still open with a couple of modeling suggestions

UBL-34  Hub document change tracking
- please note on this ticket when you have made changes to the hub document
- please remember to colour the additions and changes red when editing

JSON Task Group
 - intermediate work being tracked in this document:
 - emphasize that it is an exchange format
   - can be mechanically transliterated to and from XML losslessly
 - emphasize that it may not be suitable for other purposes
   - e.g. direct consumption by tools such as Oracle and Mongo may not be
     possible, requiring JavaScript, Python or other programming to create
     a user's custom internal representation of the information found in
     the exchange document
 - what kind of document to describe the warnings?
   - could be a "usage document" on its own or a chapter of the UBL NDR
   - specification itself could be a chapter of the BD NDR

Naming and Design Rules

 - TC Admin announced the 60-day public review ending 18 December 2016:
 - per TC process 3.4.1 last paragraph, nothing can change in the document
   at this point until after the public review

JIRA tickets
   https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972 (note that the view can
   be changed using the box icon at top right; the list view provides the most
   summary information, without the detail view obscuring the screen space)

   - when creating tickets, remember to distinguish the following components
     by how they are described to be used as categories:

   - status and resolution values:
     - NEW - the issue has been created but not yet agreed to be in
             consideration or not for the development distribution
           - in order for the issue to become active work for the committee
             the new ticket must be changed to OPEN or it will not be seen
             in the "to do" filter
           - the other option on a new ticket is to change it to DEFERRED
           - please remember to look at the open filter to ensure visibility:
     - DEFERRED - the issue is not in consideration for the development
                - please remember to use this when creating new tickets for
                  backwards-incompatible changes
     - OPEN - the issue is in consideration for the development distribution
            - keep the issue OPEN when assigning to Ken for incorporation
            - please remember to add a comment regarding expectations whenever
              you assign an OPEN ticket to another person for any action
     - RESOLVED + Applied - the issue is incorporated in test but not released
- RESOLVED + Fixed - the issue is incorporated in a released test version;
                          (record which one)
     - RESOLVED + No Action - considered as no action for distribution
     - RESOLVED + Cannot Reproduce - considered as no action for distribution
     - APPLIED - the issue is included in a public review (record which one)
     - see also the discussion on the status workflows here:

   - members please note to discuss ticket issues as comments to the ticket so
     that we can audit the discussion when making decisions about the ticket,
     without having to find the discussion on the main mail list
