Discussion about future of the new work group:

Best path forward administratively would be to start a new WG using the current updated charter. Then move to archive this current WG. This would cause a clean-up of stale participant lists and allow us to change to the simpler "Non-assert covenant" IPR option.

  • Have the two existing WGs (CISWG and CMS WG) working side by side, until 31st January 2020.

  • Information Sharing Interoperability (ISI -WG) is the proposed name for this new WG) under the default Non assertion covenant IPR. The new charter for new WG already approved by the LC.

    • MOTION: Use the name Information Sharing Interoperability WG 
      • Moved: Mary H.
      • Second: Lisa L.
      • Discussion: Mark asked to review old verses new, and was provided the links
    • Motion carried
  • The ISI-WG' is prepared, using the recently LC balloted charter for a new WG

    • And populated with the existing Consent Receipt v1.1 specification, but not published until there is consensus on the name of the new WG.

    • It will likely be published without the contributors to the Consent Receipt agreement to 'recontribute' their contributions into the new WG under the new IPR because we may not have them all in time.

    • Target date for initial release of ISI-WG is January 10th but could slip a few days/a week later.

    • The new group is to approach applicable efforts as multiple discrete projects with small project teams working independently and reporting back to the entire WG at least monthly.

    • All Features and specs to be driven and tracked out of Confluence. Technical coding and programming (GitHub)

    • Two initial discrete projects proposed to move forward immediately (subject to consensus from the CISWG but the actual yes/no vote will be in the new ISI-WG when spun up with GPAs signed and has a roster of voting participants).

Request to these contributors to agree to their contribution being re-contributed to the new WG (Link to Survey Monkey included). Ballot open 14 days closing Monday Jan 20th 2020.

    01/31/20: CISWG proposed to be officially archived.

    Proposed Email to current CIS WG Members:

    • As you are probably aware, the Consent Information Sharing workgroup (CIS-WG) is proposed to be archived and replaced by a new workgroup [proposed name Information Sharing Interoperability - ISI-WG] to be both more agile and project-driven, as well as operating under a more flexible IPR regime .

      Furthermore, it is the desire of both the voting participants in the CISWG the participants in the new ISIWG to use the Consent Receipt Specification v1.1 text as the baseline for further document development.

      It is important therefore, the contributors to the work are aware of this and also agree through a straight up or down vote to their work being contributed into the new work group with its more flexible IPR.

      All known contributors are listed in the Consent Receipt Specification v1.1 incorporating previous versions and published at : (link) as at the close of the 45 day IPR review and public comment period for this specification. They are listed below for the sake of clarity.

      ...John doe ...Sally doyle

      .... etc

      The new ISI-WG requests Contributors to Consent Receipt v1.1 to agree to the re-contribution of those contributions from the Consent and Information Sharing work group to the new group.

      Please complete the form on Survey Monkey (link) regarding your agreement or otherwise to this recontribution to the new workgroup as soon as possible but in any event by Monday January 20th, 2020.

      Finally, we welcome everyone continuing to contribute your knowledge, expertise, and perspectives in this new WG [ name] effort. (links to GPA, wiki etc)
