This is a draft of the charter for Committee P (Publications).
Your comments and your willingness to join the committee would
both be appreciated. -- vincent
The task of WG2 Committee P is to produce the final report of the Working Group, as well as any other publications that the Group may specify. The final report, to be entitled Revised7 Report on The Algorithmic Language Scheme: Large Edition, will be produced in two or perhaps three volumes.
This Report will be produced as a HyperSpec, and in a linear
(reader-oriented) form in several formats, including at least PDF
Membership in the committee is open to any member of WG2.
Proposed workflow: one of the other committees will produce some
text, and will presumably work with C to do a first pass for
clarity and consistency, and perhaps the proposed O committee to
establish suitable performance guarantees. That text will then be
passed to this committee, which will be responsible for
incorporating it into the appropriate volume. A Git repository,
presumably on codeberg.org, will receive the appropriate pull
requests, though an email channel might also be established if
there are members reluctant to use Git. This committee will take
responsibility for doing the appropriate merging. C will no doubt
be examining the resulting drafts carefully.
This committee will also be responsible for establishing the
toolchain that produces the Report, so that a WG2 member on
Linux/BSD, macOS, or Windows need only install the necessary
software and issue the appropriate shell/batch command to produce
the current draft.
It should be noted that the post(s) of Editor(s) of the Report are not filled at present; presumably that matter will be resolved later. The Editor(s) will be de facto member(s) of this Committee.
In keeping with the other committees, there may be ballots from time to time. These will be given names taken from the list of Harlequin Romance novel titles. The first few will be Forbidden Island, Ship's Surgeon, and Night Superintendent. It is hoped that we don't get to The Ordeal of Nurse Thompson!

It will be best to define what a HyperSpec is. It is not obvious to me
what the HyperSpec is based on the Wikipedia article  or the
HyperSpec itself .
I, for one, very much like the work by Arvydas Silanskas at
https://r7rsindex.com/search?query=generator What do you think about
including that in the charter?
I will be very glad to be part of Committee P.
