No

The TEI Bylaws now call for partner institutions instead of host institutions, but http://www.tei-c.org/About/hosting.xml still refers to the former. I'm also not sure whether this list is current.

Furthermore, the Board membership list at http://www.tei-c.org/About/board.xml still refers to "host representatives", though my understanding is that we now have "partner representatives". Likewise this list should be checked for accuracy.

    entirely sensible (unless they are being referred to in a historical capacity, i.e. minutes). I'll do a google search to see what I can find, but if you stumble across any feel free to add them to this ticket. I'll try to do this next week sometime, if I don't for whatever reason, remind me!

    I am quite sure that no announcement has ever been made about the choice of partners, and even if it had been, I wouldn't trust it as current. Best to try to get information from the Board.

    I believe I've changed the text, but changing status to 'pending' because the page listing partners really needs to be updated to reflect current reality.

    Per current Board list and discussion with Susan Schreibman, removed Nancy but added TGE-Adonis. Will ask John Unsworth status of Virginia and Brown partnerships: both were pending last we heard. (Virginia kept a representative on the Board pending resolution of partnership, whereas Brown's stepped down until it was resolved.)

    If this is now resolved, please could James close it? In future, I wonder if we should have a separate mechanism for TEI website suggestions, since they are hardly the same as bugs in the Guidelines, which is what this queue is supposed to be for.

    This is not yet resolved since John U. has not replied. Once he gets his life in order again, I will ping him.

    Reassigning to Kevin, but I'm going to ping the board list and point them to this ticket.

    In discussion on the Board list it was confirmed that Brown was not currently a 'partner' and should be removed from all pages stating this. (Though they are looking to do this at some point, I believe.)

    Removed Brown. Leave open this ticket until someone confirms whether Virginia is still a partner.

    David Sewell mentioned to Kevin on 2012-08-29 that Virginia was due to send a note to the Board in the next couple of days about the future of Virginia's hosting/partnering arrangements. Kevin has just send David an email asking for an update on this, which will hopefully allow us to close this ticket at last.

    I see that David removed Virginia from the list of partners on 2012-10-15, so I'm now closing this ticket.
