Thanks Josh.

I thought to add the specific that we know so far.

If any can join, we're talking about Wed 11/20 at the Piston SFO office.  The meeting will be *all day* but you can attend parts

IMHO, this is planning for the kick-off, not the actual kick-off.  However, we need to decide quickly if a by-laws change is needed.  That's the primary objective for this meeting.

Here's a tentative agenda (to be ordered based on availability of Mark Radcliff)

Objective:  Determine if a by-laws change is needed & plan for kick-off.

Some topics to review:

*         Process & Logistics

*         Name of committee (Alan was suggesting "elephant" as a follow on for "spider")

*         Should be change the bylaws to be more process (less project) oriented?  If so, how/when?

*         Review the principles, make sure the text makes sense

*         Identify "elephants" in the process that we need to address/avoid/postpone

*         Timeline for implementation

*         Identify technical gaps (beyond RefStack)

*         RefStack review & planning

*         Discuss community involvement process

Rob Hirschfeld and I are chairing the newly approved Interoperability Committee, and we have a kickoff meeting next week. I'm reasonably confident that we'll have a preliminary model for FITS certification by the time of the Icehouse Summit.

We're going to repurpose the existing FITS mailing list for this, so if you want to follow along, you should sign up there.

As of January 1st, 2012, your product must pass any Faithful
Implementation Test Suite (FITS) defined by the Technical
Committee that will be made available on http://www.openstack.org
/FITS , to verify that you are implementing a sufficiently
current and complete version of the software (and exposing
associated APIs) to ensure compatibility and interoperability.

"OpenStack FITS. Coming soon. The OpenStack Faithful Implementation
Test Suite will be available in early 2012."

I guess we're a little behind there. Is there any benefit to
revising that ETA or do we wait until there's a more solid timeline
