Re: [microprofile-wg] I find these multiple shared google drives very confusing

I am very much struggling with the multiple drives. I saw the shared drive from the External community and found the 2022 program plan was there, so I simply added the community voice for the 2022 program plan there. Later on, Amelia pointed out it was not the drive I should use. However, I cannot see any other drives. I had to recreate the same doc and placed it under the directory Amelia mentioned (the drive was not shared with me). I am very much confused with this. We really need to reach a conclusion on which drive is for which and make all drives accessible or simply stay with a minimal number of drives.

Having multiple shared drives for MicroProfile is confusing at best and even error-prone, if we accidentally lose critical comments or data.

I understand the need and desire to include the wider community when collaborating on documents.  But, we don't need separate shared drives to accomplish this.  As part of my efforts to lead the Jakarta EE 9 and 9.1 releases, we had several documents where we shared data and solicited comments and input from the wider community.  These documents were on the official shared drive for either the Jakarta EE Steering or Specification Committee.  But, after the initial creation, I just modified the sharing attributes to open it to the public.  This worked great to get the necessary input from the wider community.  When it was time to finalize the document, then I would turn back the sharing permissions.

This approach served me well during the Jakarta EE efforts.  I know other members of Jakarta EE have used this "permission dialing" in a similar vein.  I don't understand why this approach wouldn't also work for the MicroProfile shared drive.
