  • ARB recommendation concerning location or project documentation
    • Add to next week; ARB still working on it
  • Project services/Publishing report on sunset process
    • Work continuing. Many different pieces to consider. The project has grown and may need a scope statement as several groups are now involved. Wayne asks Freida to send him what she's got so far. Freida will send it to the TSC list. Lynn is meeting with Project Services this week as well.
  • Paul created a NIB and it wouldn't let him file it unless TSC approval had been secured. Would it be better to pull the item from the ballot if materials aren't approved closer to the ballot? As we add more steps it stretches out the timeline. Discussion over doing a final checkpoint some number of weeks before the ballot opens. Andy suggests engaging the project facilitators. Not allowing to enter the NIB is too early. Freida: is three weeks out at the content deadline reasonable? Andy: on the V3 side we have a variety of deadlines that serve as triggers. We need to push some of the responsibility back on the project facilitators. They need to make sure it goes through the necessary approvals and record them. Freida: maybe there could be a warning with the deadline when you attempt to submit the NIB. Paul: we should have to declare that the project is not approved rather than lie about it.
  • Anne notes that ballot items will go out for e-vote
  • Open issues
    • Discussed item 9444: TSC to identify process to build member benefit from IP and identify what is free IP and what isn't. Group wonders if this should be handled by the membership and strategic resources committee; agreement that MSRC would be more appropriate for the communication piece. Wayne asks if this is more appropriate for the Board level.
    • ACTION: Pat will talk to Karen about what we have in the board minutes. She recalls discussion over making this part of the PSS as well. Paul suggests we make a note that while ARB and others are considering what requirements we put on where committees can store information that anything that
  • TSC to review projects open greater than 5 years
