FEA Maintenance Process

Jose, links to a description of the FEA reference model maintenance process
as well as the submission form are provided at http://et.gov/stage4.htm  

I understand MAX will be used to facilitate consideration of submissions
during this revision cycle.  A link to MAX is provided at
http://et.gov/stage2.htm but access is limited to .gov folks and

ET.gov is a means for other folks to provide input into the process, i.e.,
to propose additions to the Technical Reference Model (TRM), as explained at

I will know more after attending a meeting on Tuesday afternoon at which
direction will be given on the process for this cycle.

Ok. I remember you (maybe someone else) mentioned about this before.

What's the rationale and process?
I'm copying Kevin since he will probably understand it better than me  
anyway :)
