Checking Open Action items


    • Responses to FPWD? Contacts list
    • timetable etc for second public working draft

Profile Guidance group

  • suggested deadlines:

1. August 21 - Documentation on profileDesc vocabulary plus open github issue for discussion to clarify details so that Working Group can make a decision

(This has been moved to August 28, by mistake, when we decided not to hold the August 21 meeting.)

2. September 11 - Consensus decision on whether or not to include profileDesc vocabulary in deliverables (as part of Profile Guidance or stand-alone, or neither). Will be based on discussion beginning August 21 (or earlier)

3. September 18 - Macro outline of Profile Guidance draft which incorporates the decision on profileDesc

4. October 9 - First draft (or very detailed outline) of PG draft

  • subgroup report
  • Request (NC): can Requirements be moved from GDoc to GitHub? (Do we still need this?)
    • all items in the GDoc have had GitHub issues created and the doc has been annotated with them
    • labeling of the issues has occurred and sorting queries placed in the GDoc

Profile Negotiation

  • subgroup report


Nothing until September
