Agenda Topics

Agenda ItemsMeeting Minutes from Discussion

working group minutesdeferred till more attendees are on a call
PSS- 1388 V2+ co-sponsorshipWe agree EST is the correct WG for tracking the tooling that will support generating V2+ and is also a steward for downstream tooling that would allow creation of implementation guides. We believe discussion is needed before agreeing to be a co-sponsor.
Primary sponsor of V2.9 to V2MG

Would we endorse V2MG becoming primary sponsor of the V2.9 Normative standard? V2MG had discussions with INM and agreed to become primary sponsor.

Conference call numbers have changed

Brian Pech  update the invites with the new call number 


Andrew Statler Do we want to require a repo maintainer for a work group? The issue came up in Structured Documents and a discussion ensued.

Are there naming conventions? Is there a process for this? 

David Johnson In the past, DJ has managed HL7 GitHub access. But the question is, who is allowed access to the HL7 GitHub and create repos?

Andrew Statler  Grahame and the FHIR guys are trying to create a naming standard because of the dependencies in their build tools.

Need to have a larger discuss with Wayne Kubick 

Is it possible to establish sub-domains under the HL7 GitHub site?

Grahame proposes that GitHub repo requests need to have a corresponding PSS 

We could have a channel on, where DJ and Grahame and others could discuss access to the HL7 GitHub for repos, as needed.

next call - May 28 at 3PM EDT
