Hi Alastair and all,

Yes - I really like this direction, and Alastair thanks for taking a 
lead on this, and to David for previous work. You guys have mentioned an 
Excel spreadsheet and I'm not
averse to that but, I just don't recall seeing it. We do need to work 
off something that e'one can see. I'm concerned also about the 
accessibility of the tool/platform that we use and agree that Table wiki 
markup may not the best option as things can break easily.  The chairs 
will need to discuss this general 'SC Managers' approach in more detail 
but at the very least - to get the ball rolling it would not hurt to 
quickly get a sense of those in the group who are willing and able to 
ramp up this SC review work.

So with this in mind I've set up a draft 'SC Managers' page in our wiki, 
not with a table but just a simple page where people can add their 
names, and list SCs they wish to manage. There is also a brief guide. 
To get this going, I have added a couple of names of working group 
members who have 'signed up' to manage SCs (Alastair, Glenda, Wayne, 
along with the candidate SCs they have choosen. Please feel free to add 
yourself and any SC you wish to work on. The list is available here [2]
Alastair, I've incorporated some of your suggestions into the 'guide' - 
very helpful.

IMO the managers role - as I see it, is someone who can co-ordinate the 
feedback and help iterate the SC, incorporate feedback, make edits etc.
It does not have to be the originator of the SC, and that may even be 
preferable as it could inject objectivity into proceedings, as well as a 
fresh perspective.
The SC manager would also look for similarities/synergies etc with other 
candidate SCs and have other duties suggested in the guide.

In terms of scheduling reviews - I like the idea of Phases/Milestones - 
we are currently in an provisional review/acceptance phase.
If 20 people from the group take  even 3 SCs each then we can make 
progress steadily. This should be a manageable number for anyone.

Thanks for input all - this is a draft very useful and hope it is 
workable for e'one.

Comments/suggestions welcome
