Dear Peter,

I appreciate your efficiency in presenting this issue that was brought up in our CMC
meeting we are helding here, in INPE. I had the privilege to be in the meeting where
this question was posed to you by one of our attendants.

From my perspective, aware of the overall context of the discussions at the moment
the question was posed to you, I got the feeling that it came up, I would express it,
accidentally. I say it, because the main theme which was under dicussion was not
centered on this type of subject, at that moment. Just that.

As you are more aware than all of us, I understand that the major concern of SA WG
at this stage of the work is to accumulate, as possible more, more man-hour power
than other potentials, which may also be important.

From my part, I can readily express you that I have no proposal, at all, for a Deputy
WG Chair. In fact, this issue came up to my mind only as a result of your addressing
to us, as expressed. I do hope that, yes, SA WG may gradually count on an increase
in the men-hours it is in need to.

Thank you for your kind pondering, Peter.

Congratulations for what SA WG is gradually achieving. In my opinion, and you know
quite well, why, a very important initiative for CCSDS.

Kind regards,

From: Shames, Peter M (312B)<mailto:peter.m.shames at jpl.nasa.gov>

Dear SAWG team,

During today’s CESG report to the CMC the question was raised as to whether we needed / wanted a Deputy WG chair.  I am bringing the question to you.  Here are the questions we need to answer:

  1.  Do we want Deputy System Architecture WG Chair?  There is no requirement for one, but we can appoint one if we see value.
  2.  If the answer is yes, then are any of you interested in that role?   The WG Chair role is described in the CCSDS Org & Proc doc, CCSDS A02x1y4c1, which is found on the CCSDS web site.  Look particularly at section
  3.  If we do decide we want a Deputy WG Chair I will, as a courtesy, ask the CMC if any of the agencies have a suitable candidate.  Since there is some prestige associated with having a WG chair or deputy some agencies may propose other people, which also means more resources, always a good thing.
  4.  Depending on the outcome of all of this, which will take at least three-four weeks, we will pick a Deputy WG Chair and I will propose it to the CESG for concurrence.

So …

Do we want Deputy System Architecture WG Chair?

Are any of you interested in that role?

Answers please by close of business, California time, Monday, 2 May 2016.

Thanks, Peter
