Re: [802SEC] [WGCS:] Update - Rosters are Now Active in myProject


I think where we are now is in a transition phase.  I believe during this year much of what currently appears chaotic is planned to become a bit more systematic as additional myProject capabilities roll out.  Per Paul's email, I personally plan to let his submission be it until more myProject capabilities and requirements are in place.  Smaller WGs can be the beta test for this part of myProject right now.

If I understand it correctly, myProject will be providing a consistent method for participants to provide a lot of information.  When myProject is fully implemented, I believe it will be possible to require all participants to have a web account (something that is free and does not require IEEE-SA membership).  

The myProject evolution will affect LMSC and its WGs to some extent.  I think some things we can choose to use and even still influence the details of implementation.  In other areas, requirements will probably be quite firm.  Some myProject "features" like acknowledgements related to copyrights, and Code of Ethics requirements will be firm and cause minor changes in some LMSC WG process/procedures.  

The requested list is related to another that I believe is firm.  The list's purpose is for indemnification of participants, and has existed in various forms for a long time.  Paul list is all participants to be indemnified.  What is in myProject currently is probably (as you deduce) just those with web identities (which is closely correlated to SA members with interest area subscription).  If indemnification is tied to having a web identity and subscribing to the interest areas (e.g., becoming a participant), then the need for Paul's list submission will go away.  If you don't follow the rules, you don't get indemnified.

There is an SASB ad hoc chartered to clarify the terminology you complain about (member, participant, observer, voting/non-voting, etc.)  Once that is done, those terms should be made consistent in IEEE-SA governing documents and myProject (allowing a trickle down to Sponsors and WGs).  I'm not sure how the names will sort out, but for example, participants could include participation by correspondence (e.g., reflector subscription), non-voting members are those that attend meetings, voting members are those that meet additional requirements (e.g., for LMSC: meet minimum attendance requirements, ballot participation, declaration of affiliation, valid contact information and request membership).

Jodi -

If I correctly read between the lines of your 
message below, the set of names that currently 
appears in the system for 802 Working Groups is 
basically those *IEEE-SA members* that have web 
accounts and that have expressed an interest in 
802 (presumably by enrolling in the various 
balloting groups? your message is not clear on 
that point). As there are many 802 participants 
and voters that are not, and never will be, 
IEEE-SA members, I don't see that this mechanism 
will be of any use as a means of managing 802 
membership rosters, as there will be no means of 
entering data against non-SA member participants. 
My guess in the case of 802.1 (and probably the 
other 802 WGs as well) is that SA members are in 
the minority of 802 participants.
