The proposal is that the council formalise its \"SIG rep\" programme by appointing formal ex officio members of the SIGs from the council. These representatives will act as a liason with the SIGs reporting back to Council about SIG activities at each meeting and reporting to the SIGs on relative actions on council. They will also assist the convenor and members with technical and other questions. The current situation is like this but is informal and interest based. This prroposal is to make this more strcutured by creating explicit positions that are to be (re-)filled as vacancies arise.
The list of SIGs is available on-line at TEI-C.org. Since it seems pretty silly to require somebody to go later to look at a list that I have right here at hand, however, I figure it costs nothing to reproduce it here.
