Two points for discussion...

I am seeing quite a bit of off-list discussion regarding work on the
current API. I would like to propose that discussions regarding a change in
functionality or addition of features, or something that equates to a
change be openly discussed via the ORCA Community Group mail list before we
implement the change.

Having the discussions via "Issues" on github or on a closed mail list is
not likely to foster community culture, nor is it helpful to those who are
part of the CG but are not on those other lists. Prior to the CG being
formed those avenues for discussion we required, now that we have a
Community Group, we should be using it as intended.

As part of this proposal, we should also abide by the W3C consensus policy (

Consensus is will allow the group to have input on decisions being made
which should increase the value of the API design itself.

In my humble opinion, starting with these 2 points should provide for a
more healthy community, more transparency and hopefully more input on
decisions being made.


Since we can have consensus via email..

All those in favor:  +1

Not in favor:  -1


Just a head's up, Robin is sick with the flu.
