RE: [SETF] recommended members

Chris, Mike

I absolutely agree, but we have already hit restrictions in the number of
members (and invited experts involved). So, two suggestions...
      1. We speak to Guus and increasing the limit in members and/or
invited experts (given the context of this mornings discussion, I
personally think that this would be of value)?
      2. Or, we speak to these guys (of course, if they are willing) and
quote them as contributors rather than editors or invited experts?

      Phil, Jeff,

      As we discussed at the f2f meeting today, one of the clear value
      propositions of the SETF is building bridges to existing research and
      practice in software engineering, Along those lines, I recommend
      Michael Goedicke and Andrea Zisman as new members of the Software
      Engineering Task Force of SWBP.    Both Michael and Andrea are in
      academia and have done significant research in the area of using
      explicitly represented knowledge to advance software engineering
      practice - as we discussed this is a field of endeavor that dates
      back to at least 1969, with Cordel Green's PhD thesis.  Michael and
      Andrea have been involved quite a bit longer than there has been a
      semantic web.  I think its important to have people on board who
      understand what's already been tried and failed, since this is not a
      new idea, but rather needs appropriate connections to that community.
      I believe they would be able to help with re-drafting the current
      SETF note.
