3.0 Actions Arising from Reports
3.1 Austin Group Document to Forward to ISO (which draft?)Mr. Josey reported that he expects that Draft 7 will be appropriate for FDIS ballot. The current draft is #5. Draft 6 is expected in early April 2001 and draft 7 in June 2001. A questioned was raised whether another FCD ballot would be required. It was felt that the Austin Group processes (JDOC) were working well and all appropriate comments were being received directly into that process. Progressing draft 6 for a second FCD ballot would result in unnecessary delay. A resolution to progress Draft 7 for FDIS ballot when it becomes available was sent to the drafting committee.
All interested experts are reminded that they are invited to actively participate in the Austin Group process.
3.2 Progressing of .1a and .2bThis issue was addressed previously in 2.4 (above) and no further discussion was needed.
3.3 Re-Confirmation of Project EditorsConcerns were raised regarding active projects and the availability of the corresponding project editors to complete necessary work. It was agreed to initiate a process to reconfirm all project editors.
The convenor will contact each Project Editor to confirm that he wishes to continue as Project Editor. Where the current Project Editor is not able to continue, the Convener will issue a call for volunteers for that Project. The Convener will then initiate a WG15 email ballot to obtain WG15 agreement to submit the new names to SC22 for action at the September 2001 SC22 Plenary.
****AI (convener) make the above process happen in a timely manner.
5.0 Project ActivitiesThis entire agenda item was covered under 2.4 above.
6.0 New Business***AI (Mr. Simonsen) to work with the IEEE and ISO to address the copyright issue on 14766 (IEEE P1494).
7.1 RESOLUTIONSResolution 2001-434 Synchronization of 9945 BallotsWhereas WG15 has already approved the forwarding of 22.41 9945-2 AMD-2 (IEEE P1003.2b Draft 14) for DAM ballot, andResolution 2001-435 Forwarding of Documents
Whereas 22.39 9945-1 AMD-5 (IEEE P1003.1a Draft 16) and 9945-2 AMD-2 (IEEE P1003.2b Draft 14) are co-dependant,
Therefore WG15 resolves not to forward 22.41 (IEEE P1003.2b Draft 14) until such time as 22.39
9945-1 AMD-5 (IEEE P1003.1a Draft 16) is also ready to progress to DAM ballot concurrently.WG15 approves the forwarding of the following documents to SC22:Resolution 2001-436 Withdrawal of Project 22.21.03.01- 22.40 (IEEE Std 1003.1d) for DAM ballot

8. Closing Process
8.1 Future Meeting considerations:Canada proposed a meeting in the Fall 2001 either in conjunction with SC22 (Hawaii), in Canada, or in Northern Minnesota. Norway also said it would be willing to host a fall meeting. The UK proposed we schedule the next meeting in the same way as we did last time - set the date and action Convener to have a ballot to cancel meeting if not needed. Another alternative would be to schedule it with the next PASC/SEC meeting in late 2001.
After a lengthy discussion it was agreed that the next meeting will be October 26, 2001, probably in conjunction with the Open Group meetings. Roger Martin agreed to be drafted to be the Secretary for the next meeting.
