Moved/Seconded by Spronk/Stuart and carried 6-0-0

Vocabulary Project Proposal for SKMT Glossary

Beeler introduced this as it had been re-drafted immediately following the face-to-face meeting on October 4. Essential changes were to make Vocabulary and V3 Publishing Jointly responsible for separable but related deliverables - establishing a process for defining, managing and publishing HL7-wide glossaries (Publishing) and coordinating the submission of these glossaries to the international standards coordination effort in ISO (Vocabulary).

The amended proposal is available on Gforge.

MnM Intended Directions in Regards Data Types R2 and Versioning

Beeler outlined the directions MnM will undertake, starting with its conference call tomorrow afternoon, with regards to conversion to data types R2, and "versioning" of specifications within V3.

With the successful completion of balloting on ITS Structures R2, MnM will proceed with its previously announced plan to convert all ballot content to data types R2 for the Ballot2011Jan ballot cycle.

Simultaneously, in Cambridge, MnM agreed to implement the Action plan previously documented on the Wiki with respect to versioning of V3 interactions and other artifacts. These have been documented on the Wiki as Interaction and Versioning for over two years, but have yet to be fully implemented.

As a consequence of these Steps, V3 Publishing and Tooling will provide a means for any particular Work Group to acquire the source artifacts needed top publish a particular document or domain within a particular infrastructure version such as "V3-2010NUV".

How to assure that FnTSD and its WGs have opportunity to review and engage in TSC considerations of Items of Interest

This issue was first raised on October 4, when it was clear that communication to the Security Work Group had been lacking and were responsible for inadequate information transfer between the TSC and the Security WG. Agreed that there are three elements:

  1. Ability to propose and formulate a "Steering Division Position" on particular issues for forwarding to TSC: Agreed that this should be handled by a direct request to the Steering Division and discussion on a scheduled call or face-to-face meeting.
  2. Notice of Expected "ACTION" from the TSC to a particular Work Group. In general, these notices are sent immediately after the TSC meeting to the co-chairs of the affected Work Group, and include an invitation to join the TSC meeting or call at which the item or action is to be discussed.
  3. Forwarding an item for Steering Division "ACTION" - These are being documented in the TSC Minutes with the expectation that the Steering Division co-chairs will follow up. This latter step has been missed, in the past, by this Steering Division's Co-chairs. Agreed to retain this process based on the assumptions that the Co-chairs will quickly forward such actions to the SD list server, with the word "ACTION" in the e-mail header.

Future Agenda Item to Change Scheduling of Face-to-Face SD Meeting at WGM

Ken Rubin will forward a discussion to the FnTSD list to consider establishing a face-to-face meeting of this Steering Division during a standard "quarter" early in the week of each WGM, rather than Monday night. Item is placed on the November 2 Agenda.
