LAX F2F March 2009
This F2F is semi-virtual. Participants who wont make it to LAX will join via the net (Skype is the default communication medium).
- Date: 23d and 24th March
- Time: The meeting starts at 8AM PST (UTC 16:00) each day.
- Venue: LAX Marriot (room TBD)
- Agenda: see ZedAI_F2F_20090323-24
The target is to bring the framework into a state where it comes as close as possible to publishing as a first z39.98 committee-internal, feature-complete draft.
The work will be performed through division into subgroups (whether you are participating virtually or not) and recurring reports/briefings.
Virtual participants are encouraged to free up as much time as possible during these two days. Due to the time difference vis-a-vis Europe, european participants will form their own subgroups with their own workitems.
