Meeting Goals

The goal of this meeting is to put together the work plan for 2005-2007, proposals for new work items and resolution of the open aardvark input to date.

A large part of the meeting will be spent doing issue resolution based on Aardvark comments submitted during the period since the 2004 edition of the standard was completed. Attendees are assumed to be familiar with the proposed dispositions for the aardvark prior to the attendance of the meeting - these will not be discussed unless there is some disagreement with the proposal.
