Feedback:

  • Cameron (email): lack of committer guidelines
  • Frank: "Normally for projects without a legal contribution agreement it is good to make clear guidelines on provenance responsibilities and to have each committer agree to it."
  • Jody: docs were not distributed under a license
  • Jody: could not locate summary of the code / docs / data review on email

10) OGC TEAM Engine Application

  • OGC TEAM Engine
  • Justin Deoliveira volunteered to mentor
  • Some concerns about team size, took a moment to match names to organisations
  • Could not establish current "governance model / decision process" (something to work on in incubation)

Frank motions to accept OGC Team project for incubation with Justin DeOlivera as mentor, 11) Incubation Phases - break incubation into phases to allow projects to start in without a mentor, will require collaboration with SAC and Marketting committees. Proposal: Incubation Phases

Frank motions that the applicaiton be accepted with, Justin as mentor, Daniel Morissette seconds. Motion carried.

11) Incubation Phases

  • Send back to email for discussion.
  • Need a better name for applications that are in order, but as of yet lack a mentor. Several names were proposed "Incubation: Applied", "Incubation: Pending".

Benefits: - prevent projects waiting in limbo - better to give a clear "no" and let projects free to look into other options.

Concerns: - significantly increase the importance of reviewing the initial questionare. - increasing the burden on incubation committee, SAC and Marketing. - some projects may not be interesting enough to ever capture a mentor

12) pycsw update

Action: filling in questionnaire, will be ready for next meeting. Action: looking for mentor
