Subject: Work on Charter

After a series of offline emails discussing what it's appropriate to do in the current "semi-born" state of this working group, we've decided to start working on a charter for the group.  We'll do this on the public-oilgaschem email group, so if you are interested and haven't subscribed yet, just send an email to public-oilgaschem-request@w3.org<mailto:public-oilgaschem-request@w3.org> with the subject "subscribe".  This will be the last announcement on the oilgastemp2011 email group.

Please remember that both of these email groups are publicly viewable, so it may not be appropriate to enter into detailed technical discussions.  We think that a typical charter, however, tends to be rather high level, and although we might want to explore some use cases as examples, we probably will want to keep this informational and defer attempts to prioritize them or make agreements about how to proceed.  Anticipating a bit how we think this charter is going to look, some of the deliverables of the group are likely to be reports to the W3C which are, when finalized, made public.  We understand, however, that before this happens some of our corporate members will have to run these documents through processes involving organizations like corporate public affairs, legal, technology company management and so on.   We think, however, that we can work on a charter without getting into this kind of territory.  Obviously if some aspects of the discussion make anyone uncomfortable you need to speak up and point out the potential problem.  Obviously we are pretty much feeling our way through this process, being the first example of a Business Group.  Suggestions will be welcome.

I have volunteered to start out in the editor function because I have more experience than many of you in how the W3C works and I've been pretty actively involved in the formation of this group.  However, I anticipate that it's very likely we will want to hand this function over to someone else pretty soon.
