[Smwg] [EXTERNAL] Service Management Roles

Do you really need a "Schedule Publisher" role as opposed to a more generalized service provider role?  Would any org that was not also providing services, in some form, ever be a schedule publisher, and is the distinction truly useful in any practical sense?

Just to finally provide some sort of concurrence, via email/in writing, I think the proposed set of rules is fine.

It could be argued that in fact the schedule publisher role should be deprecated in favor of the two more generic CSSS role you're proposing, but I don’t think it’s worth pursuing at this time.

In some relatively distant future somebody may want to do some sort of service discovery with regard to the sanaregistry and a finer granularity may be of use but I think that is not any kind a pressing need for the foreseeable future – and we may have some new-fangled really cool registry capability in place then that makes this academic.  So, role statements are fine.

Dear all,
             in response to the discussion of roles in the context of service management I propose the following;

Schedule Publisher - for providers of the simple
CSSS (Provider Cross Support Service System) for providers of planning info, service packages and suchlike (i.e. the responses to requests)
User CSSS (User Cross Support Services System) for submitters of requests

I don't really see any need to go to any finer granularity of roles and the above is inline with existing CCSDS terminology.

Cheers for now,
