Agreed, Committees are distinct from the Technical Working Groups and I'll defer to Nat, David, Mike, and others who are more well versed on those areas.

PS Brian

We need to keep the WG lists separate from the committee lists they have specific membership and IPR rules.

One hesitates to speculate on what should be done about the specs-council.   As I understand it it is more of a hereditary group like the senate (In the commonwealth) It appears to be as active.

It would be up to them to decide how to organize there list.  I don't know that the board has authority over them by constitutional design.

Hi John,

What did you resolve for managing mailing lists going forward?  Are you advocating moving to Google lists, something else, or staying with what we have today.  In any case, Global Inventures and the Executive Director should have administrative access to all mailing lists for the benefit of continuity.

General OpenID discussions relating to Europe


OpenID General Discussion


Legal discussion around OpenID


OpenID marketing


Discussion around security and anti-phishing tactics


OpenID Specifications Discussions


Specifications Council


Contract Exchange for dynamic exchange of legal contract among the parties.


PAPE specification mailing list


User Interface Working Group Specs list


OpenID user experience

I'd like to see us have the following to start.  We can add/delete/modify as necessary as the Committees come up to speed and determine what their respective needs are.

*         Board
*         Board Private
*         Executive Committee (new)
*         General
*         Adoption (if we can migrate the Marketing and User Experience lists over to this list, that would be great, if not we'll just let sit dormant unless/until the Adoption Committee requests them)
*         Government (new)
*         Security
*         Technology (new)
*         Legal
*         International Outreach (new)
*         Certification (new)

Are people actively using EU?  If so, we should roll that into International Outreach unless the International Outreach Committee wants to keep this separate list.

Will leave it to the Technical Committee to determine what lists they want (specs, specs-council, specs-cx, etc.)
