Profile Guidance group

Taking into account the Profile Roundup document we need to get wider discussion on the content of the proposed guidance document on profiles.

We need to ensure that there is a balanced discussion on the 3 proposed models, that any other proposals for models describing profiles are flushed out and recorded, and that any decision on recommended options is evidence-based. We also need to discuss the 4 proposals for the format of this document.

To do that we all need to be familiar with the proposals so that we can make reasoned decisions.

  • suggested deadlines:

1. August 28 - Documentation on profileDesc vocabulary plus open github issue for discussion to clarify details so that Working Group can make a decision

(This was moved from the original proposal of 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
