Agenda

1. Admin:
1.1 minutes Nov 15, approval
1.2 short action items status
1.3 Web page management:
- "TC public page" link not resolved (?)
- how do we access tab-comments list archives?? and even register to it?
1.4 JIRA use update:
- can we improve PR spec titles in JIRA: long titles are truncated... (window display for "Affects Versions" is small, and title not visible full-length anywhere else).
- can we prefix the Version entries to categorize them better? (the "version" list becomes messy), e.g.: "spec:BDX Location CSPRD01", instead of just "BDX Location CSPRD01" "guid:Charter Guidelines", instead of just "Charter Guidelines"

2. "Long" Action Items review (those in JIRA)
2.1 excellence award - https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/TAB-424
- should we start to line-up selection criteria?
2.2 Citation database (e.g. RFC) - https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/TAB-435
- outline a concrete follow-up on this?
- RFC refs list from Patrick:
https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/tab/download.php/51294/rfc-current-NG.html

3. PR status. What specs are / have been reviewed, use of JIRA.
- the PKCS #11 family. Split the review "horizontally"?
- already 8 specs reviewed. Becomes urgent to categorize comments if we want to do stats on these later.
- rules for non/normative refs (see PKCS 12/1 Patrick). Where?

4. Normative Keyword directives : status, current feedback
- Martin C. (meaning of the words should be normative regardless of case)
- J.Borras

5. PR Checklist
https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/tab/download.php/51410/TAB-ReviewChecklist-rev3.doc
- add to guidelines list in JIRA
- question #1 - ranking: bloker/critical/major/minor ? Does the ranking depends on the objective? (CN, CS, OS)
- question #2 - availability as a Web resource (HTML)?

6. (if time) Iteration on charter creation guidelines:
- See logged issues in JIRA (documentation/CharterGuidelines). Anymore?
- shoot for a short guideline

We remove the broken link for now.

- how do we access tab-comments list archives?? and even register to it?

J: still, that is for consulting archives. The "subscription manager" does not seem to let me subscribe to tab-comments list.

1.4 JIRA use update:
- can we improve PR spec titles in JIRA: long titles are truncated... (window display for "Affects Versions" is small, and title not visible full-length anywhere else).
