This is an "off cycle" meeting,
since so few people could attend the first meeting this month. Plus, we
have a lot of work to do about the transition plan for 3.7 vs. 4.1 Platform.
I'm still not positive we'll get all
the right people in this one meeting, but I think it important to make
what progress we can, so will hold this meeting for at least discussion,
if not answers.
I've written up some notes and issues
to help drive the discussion. That will serve as our primary agenda item
for this meeting on 18th. See
If any of you have other issues (or
options or questions) you'd like discussed (and eventually answered) feel
free to add them to that page.
I think the first step is for us to
assess the feasibility of some different approaches ... hopefully minimizing
dual work, while supporting dual platforms ... a big part of this first
step may be getting technical answers from the Platform, P2, and EPP teams.
After that, we would be ready to approach the individual projects you represent
to see if they can feasibly buy in to the plan and that it is roughly consistent
with what they want to do (remember, we don't dictate what projects do,
exactly, but we can set some requirements on participation, and codify
what the majority of projects want to do, so we end up a little more consistent.
It will be tricky to be consistent this
year ... as it is a "transition" year, at least ... so will take
some extra coordination effort from the Planning Council to pull it off.
