Attendees: Sam, Jeff, Dan Kohn, Mats, Russ, Stew, Robert, Kay, Marvin,
Marc Miller, Darren Davis
F2F. Schedules added.
Trial use. Overview. Checklist for required modules; trial use modules
will be voted on, with compliance with the checklist being a factor.
Fast-track: can go directly to Required without being Trial Use.
Marc: political process might be an issue (vendor dominance voting down
a competitor). Robert: perhaps 100% checklist compliance avoids a vote?
Kay: superceded? Jeff: would it make a difference? Robert: trial use
gives specs extra credibility. Marc: sounds theoretical, but there are
some controversies on the horizon (RPM fork). Robert: also, maybe allow
multiple modules for some functionality, like GTK+ and Qt. Jeff:
modules that will never be standard? Marc: checklist can fix things.
Mats: can happen. May just need informal communication.
One-vote policy. Robert: might do a re-introduction policy. Jeff: can
we use the voting process to implement the same thing? Robert:
political issues again. Marc: should look at the IETF RFC process to
see how they fix this.
Discrepancies. Mats: libfoo.so.1 vs. libfoo_bar.so.2. Darren: libelf.
