Subject: Re: [virtio] Your virtio-dev@ mailing list is ready

Hi Michael, 

The Chair and I believe the Secretary have the access to edit the group notes that appear on both the TC's internal web page and the public home page. Please see the attached virtio-webpage.jpg and virtio-webpage-2.jpg. When you click the edit link, it opens the window shown in the 2nd jpg. It is raw HTML so it is probably easiest to copy & paste it to a separate editor, tweak it there, then paste it back in. It is set up using a template with the sections commented as you'll see and if you have any questions on the sections, Robin Cover (cc'ed on this message) can answer them for you. 

You can change the tag line as I call it there as well. 

Regarding the -dev@ mailing list, please note that this is for discussions with adopters and implementers *outside* the TC. It is the way to keep discussions off the -comment@ mailing list which is intended for input only. 

Per the rules of the OASIS TC Process, the TC's internal discussions must happen on the TC's main mailing list. Section 2.8 TC Visibility states: 

The minutes of each TC meeting and a record of all decisions shall be posted to that TC's general email list. All official communications and discussions of the TC 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.

So please keep your in-TC discussions on your main mailing list. That is where the rest of the world will expect to find it. Should someone from outside the TC open a conversation on the -comment@ mailing list, move that over to -dev@ and of course use -dev@ directly for out-of-TC conversations as well. 

Let me know if you have any problems with the steps above and I'll follow up with you.

How does one edit the TC homepage?
Besides adding the virtio-dev mailing list, I think
we should correct the following:

        Enhancing the performance of virtual devices by standardizing key
        features of the PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) Card

should be
        Enhancing the performance of virtual devices by standardizing key
        features of the VIRTIO (Virtual I/O) Device

Also - did everyone on virtio@ subscribe to virtio-dev as well?
We'd like to switch to virtio-dev for technical discussion,
copying both virtio@ and virtio-dev@ just makes it messy.
