Welcome, Roll Call / Introductions

Internet2 Intellectual Property Framework  Reminder

Working Group Overview (Wiki Homepage) 

  • This working group has reprsentation from InCommon Governance and Advisory groups, from CIOs and from Internet2 / InCommon staff..See the right side of the wiki. 
  • We had initially planned to include a registrar on his working group. However, It turned out that registrars have their own group looking at attribute release issues spun up via AACRAO, so we will touch base with that group in the future and exchange ideas. 
  • Thank you to Brad Christ for stepping up to serve as chair as of Oct 16, 2017
  • For publishing notes from this working group, it was decided to follow the process used by Trust and Identity governance groups, where the working group members reviews a private set of notes and then approved notes are moved to public wiki page here:

Charter Review (10 min)

      • After discussion, the group decided to switch the order of the first two items on the charter, so that development of the roadmap comes before policy recommendation.  
      • It was noted that we are moving towards Global R&S. In discussion the scope for this working  group, it was suggested that this group would likely not recommend a change to Global R&S, but might potentially encourage a subset be used for some use cases.  In addition this working group might look at the opt-in model and whether alternatives or nudges should be considered. This group might also evaluate if communication has been sufficient, and whether perhaps more outreach is needed to various groups.
      • It was noted that the role of this WG stops once we develop a draft policy. Then a draft policy would be sent for review by  InCommon Steering. InCommon Steering must approve any such policy and communicate it to the community.
