Suggestion for rewriting Guideline 4.  

Rationale.  The current Guideline 4 introduces the notion of QA process, but 
there is no discussion of what the QA process is.  The Checkpoints identify 
only 1 aspect of what needs to be done - staffing. A QA process should include 
much more regarding the functions and responsibilities, procedures, 
communications, etc.  Since I don't see this covered elsewhere, I propose the 
following for consideration.   

Guideline 4.  Establish the QA Process
QA process describes the responsibilities and functions needed to enable the WG 
to produce QA materials.  The process should ensure that the work is 
accomplished in an open, consensus-based manner.  It should address the 
procedural issues, communication channels, and structure and staffing.  

Checkpoint 1:  develop a QA Process document [P1]
Checkpoint 2: Designate a QA subgroup or task force 
Checkpoint 3: Appoint a QA moderator
Checkpoint 4. Provide communication mechanism(s)
Checkpoint 5. Allow contributions 
Checkpoint 6. define criteria for reviewing and evaluating contributions
Checkpoint 7: define versioning of test materials
