There have been some issues raised about group membership. Our current approach is that being listed as a member of a specific group automatically makes you a contributor to the profiles generated by that group. Obviously this is not always the case.

What we would like to achieve is a sense of inclusivity for the groups, while also reflecting appropriate levels of credit for those who have genuinely contributed to a specific profile.

We suggest that

  *   Group membership remains open to all by some simple process (ideally a form on the website).

Profile contribution is tracked separately as part of the development of the profile. The group lead or editor of the specification decides contributors for a profile.  Criteria for inclusion would be any of the following, or similar (you should be able to articulate your contribution):
Documentation of the profile or supporting documents (crosswalks, use cases, etc)
Implementation (test deployment to inform profile development)
Active participation in the discussions of the profile (in person, mailing list)
Securing grants to fund the activity

We welcome feedback from the wider community on this.

Best regards

Alasdair, Carole, and Rafa
