Subject: Minutes: Special XRI TC Telecon Monday 2 June 2008 10AM Pacific
Following are the minutes of the special XRI TC telecon held at: Monday 2 June 2008, 10AM PT ATTENDING Jamie Clark, OASIS Mary McRae, OASIS Jeff Hodges Gabe Wachob Drummond Reed Nika Jones Markus Sabadello Peter Davis Kermit Snelson John Bradley Bill Barnhill Les Chasen Giovanni Bartolomeo Nat Sakimura Fen LaBalme AGENDA The purpose of the meeting was to debrief on the OASIS Standard vote that ended Saturday night; there was no prepared agenda. Jamie Clark said we are likely to learn more in the next few days and weeks and suggested the TC wait a few days to take in this information. He noted that the XRI TC may resubmit the XRI 2.0 specifications for another vote whenever we feel it is appropriate. He also said OASIS will be preparing a statement about the vote and will be coordinating that with the TC. TC members had several technical questions about the voting process itself * Drummond brought up the limitation of the Kavi voting system that it does not allow comments to be viewed by non-OASIS members. Jamie and Mary explained that this is not a reflection of OASIS policy, but a limitation in Kavi that must be fixed. * John Bradley brought up that the voting form currently lists a total for abstentions, leading potential voters to believe abstaining is an option. Jamie explained that OASIS changed policy with regard to abstaining from a vote - it used to be an option but that was changed several years ago. This is another item that should be fixed in Kavi. * It was also pointed out that while the voter roster may be downloaded, the download file does not include email addresses. This caused a great deal of extra effort for the XRI TC members working to "get out the vote". # DRUMMOND to send Scott McGrath about this limitation. The final part of the discussion involved next steps for moving forward. * There was a consensus that we should engage with W3C, but after a short cooling-off period. We also need to see what their reaction is. * Drummond noted that he made a personal blog post (http://www.equalsdrummond.name/?p=130) recapping the vote and personally supporting opening a dialog with the W3C TAG. * John shared the view that normative changes to the specs may not required, however it remains to be determined how fast we want to proceed with a subsequent vote; what new work we want to accomplish in that time frame; and what documents we want/need to produce for what audiences before having that vote. Jamie will attend at leat a portion of the TC's next telecon to further discuss OASIS's public statements regarding the vote and next steps with the W3C TAG.
