[CESG] Draft CWE Projects for Documents due for five year Review

Whatever we agree to has to cover both cases where an existing, more or less perpetual, WG can just add this consideration during a meeting and those where a WG must be restarted in order to revisit, reaffirm, and / or update documents.

There is a distinct difference in how these are treated.

Hi Gian Paolo,

I was also questioning about the fact that projects for the book revision should be added, because in my view it gives an idea of the resources needed and the specific time frame. However, I agree with you that the effort and the need for such project should be real only in the case of real re-work of those books. I am wondering whether such a clarification could be added on the charter, so that the WG leader will be in any case responsible for making projects in case the review turn to be a “re-work” of the past books.

My 0.01 cents…

Dear All,
        I see that in the ongoing poll for SOIS0-SUBNET Peter has commented "Also, I think you need to enter draft projects for the review of the various Subnetwork Service Magenta Books."

I must admit that my understanding from past discussions was different; i.e.
- the review of documenting exceeding the expiration period (normally five years, :o) is an implicit task of each WG/Area and this activity was left out of the Strategic Plan for this reason
- each time a document expires the WG is called to check it and to decide about reconfirmation or review.
- if the WG decides for review, then a CWE Project shall be created (and submitted to CMC for approval).

Having said this it looks to me that a CWE Project for reviewing an expired document should only be created if the WG decides not to reconfirm it.
I also think that such a project reduced bureaucracy as well as the creation of useless project that will have to be deleted in case the WG simply reconfirms the book.

This is my cent.
I have no problem in adapting to other approaches but let's one only ONE approach.
