Subject: Re: [uima] Building Sub-Groups -- Your Input Required

My preferences are to participate in the following subgroups:
4. Behavioral Meta-Data Specification
6. Abstract Interfaces

7. WSDL Service Descriptions

10. Java Bindings

[uima] Building Sub-Groups -- Your Input Required


On the last call we decided to form small maybe 2-3 person subgroups to "own" different elements of the specification going forward.

The idea is that each sub-group would do a deep-dive on a proposed element of the specification in the IBM paper (e.g., CAS, Type-System, Abstract interfaces etc.).

The initial task would be to critique the section, identify issues and make recommendations on how to take it forward to a final form. The TC as a whole would vote on the sub-groups' recommendations and action plans. The sub-groups would then take on the task to implement the agreed-upon action plan.

Sub-groups will have leads whose responsibility it will be to share evolving comments/questions/issues as part of an email discussion with the whole TC. This is a critical component of the plan since the biweekly meeting will NOT suffice if everyone had to come up to speed on  recommendations during the calls.

Please read the following sections in the paper (if you have not already) and send me your preferences for leading and/or joining 2 or more of the following areas. I think it is important to have non-IBM participation on all of these. Please also note that some of these sections are more straightforward than others and I imagine will take less time/effort.

1. CAS Specification

2. Type-system Language

3. Type-System Base Model

4. Behavioral Meta-Data Specification (challenging issues here)

5. Processing Element Meta-data specification

6. Abstract Interfaces

7. WSDL Service Descriptions

8. Aggregate Analytic Descriptor Specification

9. SOAP Bindings

10. Java Bindings (proposed as an appendix by TC but not in original paper)


Discussion Topics (or what may be considered open issues) are discussed in section 7 of the paper. These may turn into core specifications, or may more likely lead to recommendations rather than core specifications. This section has a number of sub-sections.They will require different treatment, any thoughts?
We can decide on an approach for these at the next call.
