Slowly but surely, I am getting oriented to where we are and catching up...

I want to make sure I got this right, so let me make some comments
and please correct me if I got this wrong in any way:
1) We are not submitting a spec for public review.
The OP rules do not require that so yes, that is fine.
Instead, OP maintainers
are preparing to ask the PGB to approve a Project Specification Draft 04 (we will skip PSDs 1 to 3 for Core to avoid any confusion with the CSPRDs 1 to 3 published by the Core TC, I don't know how many CSPRDs were published by the Domains TC for the QM spec).
The only approval required for this is from PGB, with 14 days notice.
Correct. And approving it as PSD04 is fine.
Right, no approval needed from us. By 'designated branch' we were trying to say, basically, you should approve a labeled branch that people can get back to later if they want to review the evolution of the TC work product.
2) We do not have to use OASIS infrastructure to publish a PSD or
to produce PDFs. We are planning to make a PR with the changes to the document revision, status and links and tag it on Github with a tag 'psd-04', for example.
3) I suggest to have all comments on the PSDs to be submitted as Github
That is certainly a good way to do it process-wise. But personally, I wouldn't rule out that you might get good comments via the email list.
4) The specification will not be provided under the Apache 2.0 license.
Apache license is best suited for the source code. The text of the spec will be CC BY 4.0 licensed (Attribution 4.0 International). Vocabulary and OSLC Shape machine-readable documents will be provided under the Apache 2.0 license. Did I miss something?
That is fine - your call.
Also, we had some discussion in the OP call regarding the naming of the specs and publishing of the PDFs. Chet, we are still working it out but I would appreaciate if
you follow/participate in https://github.com/oslc-op/oslc-admin/issues/6.
Yes, I have been working my way through the discussions. I definitely have some questions to discuss with you there. Will get those thoughts together today.

1. Make sure the
oslc-op@... mailing list is working
so that we can collaborate appropriately.
Yes and that's done.
2. Finalize the text for the Status section of the Open Project in ReSpec. I suggest
the following content:
Yes, this section looks good.
This document was last revised or approved by
OSLC Open Projecton the above date. The level of approval is also listed above. Check the “Latest version”
location noted above for possible later revisions of this document.
Comments on this specification can be sent to
the OSLC Open Project’s public comment list oslc-op@...,
after subscribing to it by following the instructions in “Contributing” at
That sounds right. I'll look at the text in CONTRIB
now and may make a suggestion via pull request.
This specification is being provided under the Apache 2.0 License and Attribution
Note that any machine-readable content (Computer
Language Definitions) declared Normative for this Work Product is provided in separate plain text files.
In the event of a discrepancy between any such plain text file and display content in the Work Product's prose narrative document(s), the content in the separate plain text file prevails.
does not describe the process for subscribing to the oslc-op mailing list - assuming that's what will be used for public review comments, and does not yet describe the feedback licensing terms. Is there a link we should include in the Status section that describes
the feedback process and licensing implications? Something similar to https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/comments/index.php?wg_abbrev=oslc-corebut
for open projects?
Not yet. Let me sort that out.
4. The content of the Notices section needs to
be finalized. Here's what we currently have

5. Determine a process for publishing open project
specifications on OASIS
- Determine the URL pattern for the published specifications
Yes. Still TBD.
- Publish rendered specifications to OASIS
I'm not sure what you mean by 'publish'
here. Hand them off to us to load and announce?
I'm not sure of the import of this either.
Are the resource shapes something different from the QM Spec?
