ISSUE-50: If LC and CR are combined, Director's Calls can be excessive overhead

Directors-Calls

If LC and CR are combined, Director's Calls can be excessive overhead

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Processes that Suck e.g. too much time, resources, make work, etc.
Raised by:
Arthur Barstow
Opened on:
2013-10-31
Description:
It appears to me that if LC and CR are combined and the Team insists on having a Director's call before a LC+CR is published, then the number of calls becomes excessive overhead for those specs that have multiple LC+CRs. (One data point here is DOM 3 Events which should have its 4th LC in Q4-2013

Related notes:

Are you talking about a Director call, or a transition request. I believe a call is not always required...the Director can respond to the request and say no call is required. (At least that's my understanding). Ian

This issue should be moot when the edits (described in Issue 51) to distinguish re-publishing a CR draft (which for non-subtantive changes does not require the Director's Approval) and re-starting CR (which is necessary for substantive changes) which starts the IPR review clock for the substantive changes and does require the Director's approval (but not necessarily a Director's phone call - that is up to the Director to decide).

Given these observations, it is proposed that this issue be CLOSED when Issue 51 is CLOSED.

In the above Note, "Issue 51" should have been "ACTION-17"

[Ralph]: SteveZ believes the resolution of issue-51 will cover the concern of issue-50
