This combined context and synthesis documents should be approximately 750-1500 words (1-3 pages) in length
Draft: Development of a draft governance proposal and incremental steps to implementation if appropriate
Community Input: Circulation of the above to Partners, stakeholders, and the Steering group for review, comment, and change requests to the proposal
Legal Review: This step will be shepherded by Steering, as the proposed model will also be assessed for legal, licensing, and MOU implications prior to further community review.
Proposal: A revised governance proposal based on community, stakeholder, & legal feedback
Community Review: Circulation of the final proposal for potential adoption at a Spring/Summer 2018 partner meeting
In the Comments for the establishment of the Working Group:
Anna: Define the problem statement the Working Group is trying to solve. Does steering nor work anymore? What was the issue or issues that drove a need for governance?
Karen Estlund: You can review the bullets in the charter about desired attributes. A need for a common, defined roadmap and plan.
Not knowing what steering and partners do. Partners may not feel they can make appropriate calls.
If you have a project and no raodmap, it's difficult to coordinate and work with others
Rosie: There are questions around the direction of governannce. What direction is the community going in?
Simeon: How to finance general development - how do we get money to support common development?
Mark: Notion of a how decions get made. As a larger community, how do people plug in? How do you participate?
Evviva: Samvera very developer driven, to become sustainable, we need non-developers in governance and roadmaps
Mark: we can't solve everything on the first shot
Michele: We do have international concerns. How do we include people from outside US and Canada?
Anna: Look at the Component Working Group. They are important to talk to as they work to organize and plan around specific components
Document development - discovery of themes in Context Documet - if we can knock out issues we're trying to address
