Re: SPARC proposal
I have incorporated most of your suggestions into a revised
proposal to SPARC.
You raised another point also -- when can this ad hoc "gang of 5
+/-" start acting. I think the answer is as soon as it does.
The eventual X3 Technical Committee will start with whatever
technical documents exist at that time, so we should be working
on whatever improvements are appropriate. As long as we do not
pretend to be speaking for that official (not yet existing)
committee we should be all right. The real problem is getting
ourselves organized. ISI is proposing to do some kind of support
work. I am going out there at the end of February. If we are to
make any decisions, we need to have a list of current issues,
discussion points raised, and any resolution. I don't know how
each of you keep track of the items (sometimes it seems like you
just quit talking about an issue and I'm not always sure that it
has been resolved). As soon as we have a way of maintaining that
issues list and referencing discussions to it, then I think we
could start acting and making decisions public and people would
have a reasonable expectation that the decision would hold.
