For those of you not on Tuesday's OA Community Group conference call, I
wanted to call your attention to the 'Focus Group' agenda item from the call
and to the Open Issues wiki page


The Open Issue page is helping us track issue discussions and concrete
proposals for modifications to the Core and Extension Specifications such as
are currently being discussed on this listserv. 


Focus Groups: Most Open Issues list one or more individuals who have been
tasked with creating a wiki page summarizing issue discussions and laying
out any consensus recommendation(s) for action (or inaction)  needed to
resolve a particular issue.  See for example:


In order to make the upcoming f2f meeting in Chicago as productive as
possible, we are asking issue 'Focus Groups' to post pages (and notify using
this listserv) by no later than  5 September. This will provide time for
Community comment prior to finalizing meeting agenda. Typical issue
recommendations / resolutions that we expect to emerge from this process:

.         discussion concluded, no action required; 

.         no spec change required, but propose adding text to FAQ or
examples to Cookbook; 

.         keep issue open while new properties and/or classes are suggested
and considered; 

.         make a specific change to the one or both specification documents.

This list of kinds of recommendations is not comprehensive.


Process is informal by design and please feel free to join in - add your
name, add an issue. All OA Community Group members should be able to edit
wiki pages. But we do ask that you not get carried away, either by proposing
too many new issues or by trying to be part of every single Focus Group.
Concentrate on the most important, highest priority - the biggest bang for
your time and effort.
