Re: Feedback on 2017 for the Credentials Community Group

Joe, thanks for raising this topic and asking the group.

I joined the group in the spring to work on the DID spec, and except for
the fact that I wished it could go faster, I was relatively happy with the
progress. A few suggestions for 2018:

   1. To move the DID spec more quickly, we finally started doing dedicated
   calls. That has helped accelerate considerably. I would suggest using this
   mechanism whenever there is a work item on which CCG members (all or a
   subset) want to move more quickly.
   2. IMHO it really helps to have screen sharing for calls. IRC is fine,
   and creates a nice running log, but there's no reason it can't be used with
   webmeeting software like Zoom to get the best of both worlds (that's what
   we've been doing on the DID Spec Closure calls). Evernym would be happy to
   host a Zoom Room for the weekly meetings starting in January if the group
   would like to use it.
   3. As we talk about longer term plans, I think it would be good for the
   group to create and share a roadmap document. Not sure the best way to
   collaborate or host it, but that would be a good topic for Tuesday's call.

Thanks again for stepping into the third co-chair role.

Talk to you Tuesday.
