[OpenID board] Topic for this week's agenda

Scott and Bill:

Per the thread below, the question of when we will be opening up new Working
Groups for specifications is starting to come up. I'm not saying there is a
compelling reason to do that yet for any spec other than PAPE (and the
Trusted Exchange spec that Nat Sakimura and his team have suggested), but I
do think that OIDF needs to take a public stance about:

a) The status of current WGs (to my knowledge it's not published anywhere
what WGs exist or are planned)

b) The process for community members to form a WG.

Can we put a short discussion about this on this week's agenda?

It doesn't mean it won't get "looked at" or discussed here. However any
formal changes to the specifications must wait until these WGs are started.

No, this is the right place, and until the WGs are started, any discussion
should take place on this list.

I'll bring it up at the next OpenID Foundation board meeting (this Thursday)
so board members are aware of this issue.
