Full Transcript of the discussions at:


* future of QAWG *

Work of QAWG has been appreciated, good feedback on LC. Management 
decided WG can continue work until August (+a few month extension if 
SpecGL goes to REC around this date). Karl has been sole chair and 
requests more activity on the list. Participants renew commitment to 
more activity after busy times.

* QAIG report *

Olivier summarizes role of IG, reports recent work. Idea that the IG 
could be made more of a common ground for working groups to share info 
and experience on testing (see next topic)

* Report on "join test suite" lunch table BOFs *

Discussing the "join test suite" lunch table BOFs session the previous 
day. Surprisingly good participation for such a topic at such a time. 
There is a need (for us?) to provide a common repository of experience 
on testing, implementation reports (we already have the QA Matrix), 
this could be done by inviting people to participate in www-qa.

* QA WG Document Status *

VIS: still some work necessary to achieve WG Note status. Dom in 
charge, with target publication for end of April. Karl notes that 
theoretical issues with variability should be left for TAG to address, 
QAWG should focus on practicalities.

Test FAQ: Need more examples, but could be ready for publication by end 
of March. Bugzilla will be used to track its issues. Goal is to make it 
small, practical, fast.

TCDL: Renewed interest. It would be good to clarify status on oct 2003 

QA Handbook: mid-june seems to be a possible target

Spec GL: discussing whether to skip CR phase
