Jose, I'm beginning to get the sense the eGov IG may be foundering, perhaps
because the scope of the Group Outline may be too large.

My suggestion would be to include *only* those objectives for which at least
one person has indicated willingness and ability to complete the required

Regarding standards, I'd suggest that we start with the U.S. Federal
Enterprise Architecture (FEA) Technical Reference Model (TRM) and identify
W3C Recommendations as well as OASIS standards that are not in the TRM but
should be.  See http://xml.gov/stratml/index.htm#FEAPMO &
http://www.w3.org/TR/ & http://www.oasis-open.org/specs/index.php 

I would describe the intended result as a strategic plan for
interoperability, and if the IG decides to take on this task, I am more than
willing and able to: 

a) assist in identifying standards missing from the TRM,

b) document the results in StratML format, and 

c) on behalf of the IG, use the ET.gov site/process to propose inclusion of
the identified standards in the TRM.

Dear Group,

Given the number of regrets we got so far, including both of your  
Chairs, we are sorry to announce the cancelation of the call scheduled  
for next Wednesday, 17 Sept.
Next Group call should take place on 1 October.

We haven't heard many comments yet about the Group Outline and  
Activity Plan we proposed a few days ago, and expect you to comment  
about them in the mailing list.

We also request again topics for the Agenda that is evolving as usual  
at [1] or for the F2F meeting that will take place 23-24 October. I've  
just started a wiki page at [2]. If you are planning to attend, please  
register at [3].
