Discussion

Followings are the proposed motions that I would like the board to consider. There are two types: one that can take effect immediately, and one that requires board and membership voting. 

I. For immediate implementation of the current process: 

One of the obstacles that we have found during the process was that it was kind of hard to get the specs council to deliver the recommendation in a timely fashion. It has seen some improvement recently, but we want to make sure to continue it. Thus, I would like to propose the following:

BE IT RESOLVED that the OIDF Committee Liason is directed to act as the coordinator for the specification council so that specification council create a recommendation for the membership about a formal working group proposal within 15 days of the complete proposal being circulated on specs@openid.net to comply to the current OpenID process.

II. Improvements of current process

As a longer term solution, I would like to propose the following three motions. The first two are to make sure the timely and effective response from the specs council, and the last one is to protect the OpenID(TM) as well as to make it easier to create a WG so that all the discussion will be done inside the WG and the output is IPR clean.

  • BE IT RESOLVED that the members of OpenID Foundation board have agreed to amend the OpenID process document so that should the specifications council not create a recommendation for the membership about a formal working group proposal within 15 days of the complete proposal being circulated on specs@openid.net, then the proposal may proceed to a membership vote for approval.
  • BE IT RESOLVED that the members of OpenID Foundation board have agreed to amend the OpenID process document so that should specs council members not participate in the discussion of two consecutive working group proposals, they will be deemed to have resigned, and new specs council members who are committed to participating in the process will be appointed to replace them.
  • BE IT RESOLVED that the members of OpenID Foundation board have agreed to amend the OpenID process document to clarify that no draft may claim OpenID trademark until it is ratified to achieve full specification status.

What will be the outcome if the vote succeeds?

The board will pass Nat's motions as presented, with the desired outcome of facilitating a smoother specification process.

...what is the outcome if the vote fails?

No change.
