5 minAtlanta WGM updateJoginder
  • Shu mentioned to Ted Klein that we have some outstanding issues
    • We have a Vocabulary confluence page where folks log outstanding issues
  • Anything that is planning on going to ballot in May 2020 needs to have the PSS started now (the WG approval is due in October and TSC approval well before the Sydney WGM)
15 minPlanning for Sydney WGMJoginder
  • Confluence page created
  • The Sydney WGM is pushed back by one day (Connectathon is Sunday/Monday and the meeting starts on Tuesday)
  • Historically, turn out at international meetings is lower due to travel restrictions
    • Often host participation is increased
      • We should reach out to Australia PH to see if they will be attending and would like to add specific topics
        • Sarah will ask around
  • We could try and concentrate topics earlier in the meeting
  • We could also try to reach out to other WGs to review common topics together (eg DaVinci updates)
  • Sometimes approval to attend is hampered by having a lighter agenda
  • Lantana doesn't have anything being balloted in January
  • If you hear about possibly interesting topics in other WGs document them on our Confluence page so that we have a roster of other topics folks may be interested in
