  • Agenda review and approval - Pat Van Dyke
  • Review minutes of 2015-02-04 TRAC
  • Discussion Items:
    • Argonaut
    • Three-year planning


Minutes/Conclusions Reached:

  • Call began at 10:02
  • 3-Year Plan Project: Reviewed document put forward by Pat. Group discussed the way different WGs use the 3-year plan – everyone seems to use it differently. Discussed notion of 1-3-5 year plans. Austin states some groups just don’t fine these plans useful and do the minimum necessary to meet the metric.

Austin remarks that other tools (like PBS metrics) are far more useful. Suggestion to change the name; perhaps “Managing WG Ballots and Standards.’ Group wonders if the 1-3-5 plan would cause more groaning from the WGs – may produce burden instead of value. Pat asks if we should simply keep the 3-year plan in place for now and help WGs learn how to meet the metric. If so, should we rename it? Rick suggests that WGs could come to Project Services for help if they are struggling or questioning its utility. Recommendation: Leave it named as it is; leave what we have in place; put together some guidance about how to manage the 3-year plan and the PBS metrics; educate WGs on how to make it an actual useful tool. Pat will work with Rick to come up with some guidance – Rick will take to Project Services.

  • Pat put together governance piece re: projects like Argonaut. TSC and WGs have not been informed in a timely manner of projects coming in from outside. Will continue review/discussion on this next week; then no meetings next two weeks after that, resuming on March 11.
