For the TTF topic at Boston, here are some aspects that we ought to 
consider.  Proposals or email response in advance are welcome, as always, 
and will facilitate discussion and resolution.

1.)  What is the next step for TTF Charter [1]?  How and when do we get to 
the point where we say, "okay, TTF charter is done"?

2.)  We need to refine the 4 general deliverables in [1] into a list of 
specific potential tasks and projects.  An example would be the "TA first 
steps mini-project", that we have talked about since mid-2002.  When and 
how is someone (who?) going to propose a list of specifics, complete with 
proposed dates/milestones (assuming that we had some staff to work on 'em)?

3.)  How do we recruit or solicit people to work on test stuff?  We can 
make a news item and appeal for interested members, when we have a finished 
draft Charter to point to.  But what else?  Can and should we solicit 
Chairs, Team, the WGs to participate in a specific task/project, as opposed 
to a general appeal to "join TTF/TWG"?

4.)  We could have actually been working on some "Test" projects for the 
last 6 months, but have not been doing so.  I.e., QAWG has endorsed the 
TTF/TWG concept since mid-2002.  We have missed and are missing an 
opportunity to have some demonstrable results already, which in turn might 
help with recruiting.  But the problem is, we apparently don't have any 
resources to apply, to even small test projects.  Dimitris reports negative 
results on his recruiting attempts.  So ... how do we get out of this 
cycle, and how do we find resources to work on TTF-type projects?

-Lofton.
