Hi EOWG participants,

We are excited to have several people joining EOWG. Here are a few things to note, including **updates for those who have been in the group a while**.

*Commenting on drafts*

The editor's role is to gather consensus from EOWG to create and refine resources. It can be a challenging and time-consuming task! Please help your editors by:
* reviewing early drafts so you don't have major comments when we're nearly done with the resource
* making your comments easy for the editor to address

When we're first working on a new resource, broad, unspecific comments are usually fine to help the group and editor work through scope and ideas. As the draft becomes more complete, please make your comments easily-actionable. Also, it is helpful to the editor if you label your comments as (high), (medium), or (low). For example, see [1]

Please see more info about comment format in [2].

One other thing on comments: When you are commenting on an open GitHub issue, please *look at the draft resource and the context* around the issue, and also consider the resource purpose, audience, use cases, etc. (listed in the "Requirements Analysis").



During the teleconference, what is typed into IRC is logged and turned into minutes. If you want to type something *not* for minutes (such as, "my phone connection is not working, I'm going to drop and redial"), start by typing
More about that is at [3].

Assume that not everyone can see IRC. Generally, you shouldn't type comments into IRC and not say them. [4] There are some exceptions, such as when we ask participants to +1 if they agree with a proposal and sometimes when we are brainstorming wording.


Reminder that here is where to get answers to many of your questions about how EOWG works :-)

As always, if you have suggestions or questions for that page or other, please feel free to share/ask!

Thanks much for continuing to help make EOWG even better.

~Shawn, Brent, Sharron, and EOWG editors

[4] IRC bonus tip: Maybe you have a comment and you don't want to forget it before you come up in the queue. You can include it in your q+ with "to say". For example:
	q+ to say what if we combine A, B, and C into a one section?
Then when you are "ack"ed, it will remind you want you wanted to say and put that text in the minutes!
