      • See machine processable artifacts
        • Austin reviewed his changes to the document.

      • Austin reviewed the Draft Metrics document (linked in the agenda) and walked through each bullet.
      • Listserv activity - Is this a good metric for the Governance/Management group health (not sure how active these listservs are). The group agreed to keep it on the list as there should be limited activity simply to set up meetings.
      • Regarding the Group Rep at Overseer Group WGM - With SD cochairs attending the TSC meeting, the metric would be based on the SD being represented at the TSC meetings, hence if a SD is present, it's counted as 'met'.
      • Regarding the 'Red/Yellow/Green table, one must 'And' the last two columns in the table to get the color in the left column.
      • Next steps: Pilot these metrics for the next trimester cycle
