      • Response on Editorial Review Committee status: Virginia Lorenzi, Dick Harding and Keith Boone had agreed to work with the ArB to develop some checklists of things that should be in order before a document is published. Virginia indicated that the problem is that there is no one to lead the group and neither of the three individuals above have the bandwidth to lead it. She thinks it is still worthwhile if we can find someone to lead the effort.
      • Proposed: Request that the TSC petition the Board to transition Process Improvement Committee from a Board Committee to a TSC Project Improvement Work Group as a member of the Technical and Support Services Steering Division. see TSC Tracker #976
