Title: DCMI Usage Board administrative process
Discussants: Stuart and Diane
A revised process document was published on 2006-02-13 .
Subsequently, there was some discussion on the rules for voting
-- whether people who did not participate in a face-to-face
discussion should nonetheless have a vote  -- after which
we agreed on a telecon to leave the wording vague for now.
On 2006-03-30, Stuart had an action item to write up a
paragraph regarding UB process for revising the UB process
document -- a statement regarding how that process document
itself is revised so that there is something to point to should
questions of process arise. Attached is a strawman section 10
for the _DCMI Usage Board Administrative Processes_ document
10. Revisions to Usage Board processes
10.1. Purpose of process revisions. Usage Board
processes are revised and new versions of the _DCMI
Usage Board Administrative Processes_ document published
from time-to-time: (a) to clarify and correct process
statements in the _DCMI Usage Board Administrative
Processes_ document; (b) as the result of evolving
knowledge and practice; (c) to conform to the evolving
mission of DCMI; and (d) on request of the Board of
Trustees or the DCMI Directorate.
10.2. Managing process revisions. The processes of
revising Usage Board processes and the _DCMI Usage Board
Administrative Processes_ document are informal, ongoing
and managed by the Chair of the Usage Board.
10.3. Documenting Usage Board processes. All revisions
to Usage Board processes are reflected here in the _DCMI
