RE: [802SEC] CD-ROM Duties

My intent in starting this discussion was not to skip out on creation of the
CD-ROM, but to determine if the CD-ROM is truly worthwhile, any longer.
Certainly I would not have a problem with F2F or anyone else producing the
disc under contract, I really have enough to do in my real job.  However I
do believe that with big hard drives, fast internet connections, and CD-RW
drives, nearly everyone (not just the voting members) has the ability to
create their own version of the CD-ROM without the SEC getting into the
middle of it.

I've been relatively quiet on this one, but I'll jump in here.

1.  I support the continuation of the CD-ROM distribution, even if the cost
is higher than in the past.
2.  If volunteer time is an issue, let's buy the creation of the master as
well as the production.  I expect Face-to-Face could provide a turn key
service taking submission of content from WG Chairs, build the master and
contract the production.

Geoff,  Just for clarification, the policy states that the Executive is
responsible for distribution of standards
books and CD-ROMs.  However the production of CD-ROMs was assigned to the
Recording Secretary but
this is not specifically noted in the procedure (and maybe should be to
avoid future confusions).
Thanx,  Buzz
