Subject: Reg/Rep Week Summary from Baereia Meet
My overall assessment of our meetings this week is that we needed to focus and drive forward and put in place key aspects leading to Tokyo and the final round of play there. We need to be entering the Tokyo meeting with as near to an end-play as possible, given we have only two more meetings after that to complete all tasks. The two needs were to solidify the design document work and prioritize the requirements deliverables, and then to put in place the equivalent focus for a POC effort for Tokyo. The next few months are now crucial in effecting real results by Tokyo, demonstrating interface mechanisms and repository interchange syntax derived from the Reg/Rep build specifications in Parts 2 / 3 / 4. Crucial to this is the joint POC with Core/BP delivery team, the outline of which was laid down late Thursday in a joint team meeting. The next deliverable over the immediate two weeks here following on is to develop a POC proposal for submission to Nick Kareem. This POC will be a joint effort and once POC has accepted this - then team members which to partake will move over and work under Nick in the POC WG. The first draft of the POC proposal is being worked on right now and will be made available once it is ready for review by the teams. After review and agreement, then it will be forwarded to Nick for comments. Attached is Bruce Peats meeting notes for the week. They are a little hard to follow as is - but what they show is the far reaching topics of discussion generated and the depth of interest from a very good selection of people who attended. Kudos to everyone for great team input and participation. We had over 15 people consistently each day working with us. One big suggestion from the team that we are currently following up on is the idea of using an existing Library OO UML model design to help accelerate the design effort. Since Library models are well known - several candidates are currently being looked at, and we have asked IBM and other document management system vendors for assistance here to provide needed materials. Since one of the major tenets of ebXML is to re-use and adapt to purpose wherever possible - this is a logical path to explore right now. More on both this search and the POC will be forthcoming as soon as available. Thanks, DW.
