  • Subgroup Reports
    • Machine-readable Metadata Modeling Specification Working Group
      • No update - see question below
    • URI Selection WG
      • Good chats at Samvera Connect, Julie Allinson is working on Github site and domain - need to check in with her about status
    • Geo Predicates WG
      • No update
  • Issues/Questions
    • Space between active and completed work (for WGs) - groups where primary function is maintenance, how can that be represented? Maybe “Standing Group”?
    • Similar to URI Selection WG so maybe there’s already precedence and standing groups are just a kind of working group
  • Roadmap Council update (Jen Young)
    • Last meeting on 11/12/2019 -- Focused on having a retrospective of our work during the past year. Came up with a list of action items to focus on. Welcome any feedback or other items to be added
      • Illuminating to Jen in revealing uncertainty around goals of group: are the roadmaps aligned? Does “roadmap” need to be defined? Gather roadmaps from other groups in Samvera Community? Good activity to do and will help moving forward
    • Katherine Lynch joining next meeting (11/26/2019) - as a representative for Valkyrie.
      • Katherine is PO for Valkyrie, invited partially because there’s no Hyrax PO yet, but Hyrax PO will be additional Roadmap Council member and Valkyrie rep will remain
    • Partner survey over summer - will this be repeated regularly?
      • Not discussed if partner survey should be done regularly but Jen can ask group
      • Survey didn’t reveal any surprises but always good to check in
