Has this effort decided it's gone far enough and shut down?
The mail archives show nothing since late September.

Thanks for all the work.

Richard:

To my understanding Taylor is trying to reboot INI. I cannot speak to the Standards workstream effort.

Taylor had set up monthly meetings for the workstream leads. The one for Feb had to get rescheduled, something WIP via Doodle at the moment.

We are hoping to regroup, assess where the effort stands and people previously supporting it, and develop a go-forward plan.

We would welcome your thoughts here.

Thanks,

Jim

Dear all,

Great work, and I hope we can continue. 

CDT was still hoping to officially join and/or be acknowledged as a participating organisation for the last couple of years. The website remains and important resource, at minimum, so thank you to those keeping it running and up to date.

Thanks for the update, Jim.

I think it's reasonable to declare victory and move on. But keeping the terms, reasons, replacements, etc is worthwhile.  That probably means some kind of skeleton crew of volunteers.

But I'll keep watching.

Mallory,

I'm just catching up to this discussion, please pardon my lateness to the party turning into this last-moments request:

Would you like to provide a quote for the release announcement? Having your voice and CDT's perspective would be  a perfect way to round out the different purposes.


Ideally we turn this around within 24 hours so we can release this Tuesday PM to catch the best waves of the week[1]. Thank you for considering this on short notice!

Kind regards,
- Karsten
[1] The release plan, process, and even the draft announcement I worked from were all lifted entirely from this great chapter by Brian Proffitt in the Open Source Way:  https://www.theopensourceway.org/the_open_source_way-guidebook-2.0.html#_writing_a_press_releaserelease_announcement

This chapter notes in the opening general guidelines, "The ideal release date for maximum coverage is Tuesday." This is to catch the writing cycle to be read on Wednesday, which is traditionally the busiest day on the internet when stories are spread the farthest.
