WG21 Meeting No. 17
November 11-15, 1996
At this meeting we are determined to complete the Working
Paper to the point where we can vote it out as a CD, and
start the ANSI public comment period. Working backwards
from that intended result, we see that we will need to run
this meeting differently from past meetings.
By Friday, we will have completed a new version of the WP,
and take in essence two votes: accept the new WP, and
accept the new WP as the CD. The new WP editing must be com-
plete on Thursday. Votes on any substantive changes will
have to be complete on Wednesday.
Please notice that our daily schedule has been shifted 30
minutes earlier than normal.
Monday, November 11, 8:30am-5:00pm
1. Opening activities
1.1 Opening comments
1.3 Membership, voting rights, and procedures for the meet-
1.4 Distribution of position papers, WG progress reports,
WG work plans for the week, and other documents that
were not distributed before the meeting.
1.5 Approval of the minutes of the previous meeting
1.6 Agenda review and approval
1.7 Report on the WG21 Sunday meeting
1.8 Liaison reports
1.9 New business requiring actions by the committee
2. Working Paper for Draft Proposed Standard
2.1 Changes in the Working Paper
This includes changes in all chapters of the Working
Paper, corrections to changes, and approval of the
current version of the Working Paper.
3. Organize subgroups, chapter editors, and chapter
reviewers. Establish working procedures.
4. WG sessions
See comments for Tuesday's WG sessions.
Tuesday, November 12, 8:00am-5:00pm
5. WG sessions
During these sessions all WGs are to close all out-
standing issues, and prepare complete proposals for
consideration during General Session I on Wednesday.
(That is, each subgroup prepares its own complete pro-
posals; there will be no separate "drafting committee"
as in past meetings.) Presumably no topics will be
addressed which have not been discussed in previous
meetings or mailings. A "complete proposal" shows
exact changes to the WP, probably in the form of diffs,
and does not rely on the Project Editor to determine
whether other parts of the WP might be affected by the
proposal. Not later than Tuesday evening, all propo-
sals are made available electronically and in hardcopy
to the attendees.
Wednesday, November 13, 8:00am-5:00pm
6. General session I
During this session all WGs and, possibly, individuals
will present the proposals as prepared on Tuesday.
Everyone will have copies of the proposals, so the
presentations will be as brief as possible. Discussion
will be limited to understanding the issues and allow-
ing voting members to come to a decision pro or con.
Each proposal will become a formal motion and will be
voted on immediately. (Of course, formal meeting pro-
cedures regarding discussion, amendments, tabling,
withdrawing, and so on are always applicable.)
Thursday, November 14, 8:00am-5:00pm
7. Preparation of new DWP.
With the help of the subgroup editors and reviewers,
the Project Editor will prepare a new DWP incorporating
all the approved changes from Wednesday in electronic
form. Diff bars will show the changes from the version
approved on Monday. The DWP will be made available
electronically, since it will be possible to print only
a limited number of hardcopies at this time. Work
should be completed by 5:00 pm.
8. Social event Thursday evening.
Friday, November 15, 9:00am-12:00pm
Note: We will start one hour later in order to allow
some extra time for reviewing the new DWP.
9. Review of the meeting
9.1 Formal motions
9.2 Review of action items, decisions made, and documents
approved by the committee
9.3 Issues delayed until Friday
10. Plans for the future
10.1 Next meeting
10.3 Following meetings
Morning coffee break - 9:30am-9:45am
Lunch break - 11:30pm-1:00pm
Afternoon coffee break - 2:45pm-3:00pm
