Agenda/Mtg Notes

  • Actions
    • We skipped action review this meeting
  • TCG Business
    • Github plan - (from Markus) - tabled for discussion when Pat was present
    • CSP discussion - TCG discussion on CSP noted that a stronger CSP presents could help the TCG and user community as a whole. Specific areas of note were: spectral DM implementations do not have a science priority connection to help implementers. There needs to be more invovlement with support of tutorials, docs, and a connection to the community we're serving. Also noted that we are working from the bottom up using VO simple things - we need to reach the community to get a better sense of their uses and issues. Also noted that there needs to be a stronger connection with the TCG Interest groups and that the IG needs to participate in the CSP. JE will work to express to the CSP and Exec that we're requesting a review of the CSP mandate/activity. Time to find and read the CSP mandate. May be time to recommend some changes in their charge at this stage of IVOA to make the group more relevant.

    • Marco noted that he heard back that the Exec reviewed request for an ivoa.net subdomain (documents.ivoa.net); Dave M noted that we may want to consider using 'docs' over 'documents'. Markus reinforced that idea and Marcos agreed.
    • JE notes that there was a follown action from the Exec: Pat asked if it was a subdomain or a DNS entry that was needed; the action was for there to be a discussion with Pat/TCG about the technical details before proceeding.
